Front Sprocket Question

I put the 9er back together today and since it was nearly 60 degrees I decided to go take her out for a test ride. Spring fever is at bay for at least another couple of days.

So here is my question. While cleaning all the old-school gear oil chain lube off the bike I noticed that the front sprocket feels a little loose. I can move it around a little on the shaft. I'm going to check the torque, but is this normal for it to come loose if that is the issue?

they all do that


Honestly, Murf, thay are designed to slide just a bit. Go back to the thread started by "Mylifeon2wheels. His issue went away when the dealer greased the countershaft.

It's kind of a learning process when you take these things apart and put them back together.

Rod,

I really wasn't too worried about it as it just moved a little. There is no knock on mine either. I had helped Larry with his ZRX and didn't notice the front sprocket moving so I thought I would ask. I should have taken the front sprocket off for better cleaning and suspect that I would have found a the sprocket just slid over a splined shaft.

Keep that "they all do that" theme going! It's pretty funny in a smartelic way.
