Sounds like a good fix but can someone expand on this sprocket side to side movement on the shaft please…
I would have thought as required per spec when one is to torque down the c/sprocket bolt (with washer) it would press the sprocket on to the backside of the drive shaft, and hold it in place.. How would it move????...
This kinda goes to my issue I have with my Renthal sprockets..(which I keep on forgetting to email Renthal about)
Last summer I changed out my front and rear sprockets with a set form Renthal, and just this summer when I was packing the bike away for the session, and cleaning out the centre sprocket area, I noticed that c/sprocket moves on the drive shaft side to side about 1mm…
I have no perceived problems with the side to side movement, but as noted above, with my Renthal c/sprocket, the bolt/washer that is to hold the sprocket in place is not really being torque down as the washer is not touching the side of the sprocket. Essentially the bolt is just torqued down on the end of the shaft.
I drew up a PRETTY picture to help
What do you guys think?
I knew I should have kept the OEM sprocket to compare! Anyone have an original OEM sprocket that can measure the width of the sprocket? As I will be emailing Renthal and ask them to compare the OEM width to their replacement c/sprocket

If you get a knock in the driveline you now know where to look. Thanks for your help guys.
