That's one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Wow! I've had a front sprocket that was pretty bad but this takes the cake!

it slipped once when i tried to clutch it up, i was like wtf... and then thats when i looked at the sprocket. so ill definitely be payin more attention to these kinds of things. i bought a new front sprocket too, but the one on there now is fine, cant even tell a difference from new one and that one. Besides the one on there now doesnt have that metal color look or whatever.

I agree with most everyone's responses.

Rule of thumb:

ALWAYS, if possible, change out BOTH of your sprockets AND chain at the same time. If you put on a new chain and don't change your old worn sprockets, your new chain will stretch to fit your worn sprockets. Also, on the same token, if you change your sprockets and don't replace your chain. The old chain will prematurely wear your new sprockets becuase it has stretched from your old sprockets and riding time.

If you can afford to, replace all of that at once and you'll find that it will last alot longer that way.

Just my .02

Put it in gear and use a breaker bar on that front sprocket.

I forget exactly how much i paid for the seals. I bought the sprockets and seals together so i dont remember how much the guy said. I wanna say around 18 or so, but i'm probably wrong.

Doesn't it require a lot of force to crush the pin? It's a shame Vatozone/OReally dont stock chain adjustment/replacement tools for rental/loaners. If you're going to do this regularly, just buy the kit...they're like $100~

i tried a c-clamp and couldnt get it to do it. i have a buddy of mine from work that is goin to come over after we get off, he has the tool to squish the pins. and after that all i'll have to do is get the fork seal down into the fork tube and i'll finally be ridin again.
