+1 - that could have ended very badly, as in having the rear wheel lock up at speed in heavy traffic!!

Look Witchy has a point here. If you didnt know what you were doing or the tools to do it right with then you shouldnt have been doing it. If you want to F up and end your life then go ahead and do so. BUT i though i recalled you being on a forrest run when this went down. What about all the others riders around you? Seems awefully selfish to put their lives at risk as well doesnt it?

R6gal deserves mad props for riding a bike at all AND even more so for being willing to jump in and work on it herself.
Sounds to me like she understands what she is doing, she did ask for help when she was unsure. Getting a bunch of keyboard ninja's jumping her because she didn't use a torque wrench is !
I've changed many many front sprockets without a torque wrench, never had a problem. It's possible she had it plenty tight but didn't know/forgot about the tang washer needing to be bent.
I say good on ya r6gal! The odds of you doing something wrong and hurting yourself are VERY low. Many many people work on their own bikes without being professional AMI graduates and do just fine.
Keep learning, ask questions and soon you'll be as smart as everybody else on here...

HOLY !
anyone else care to tell her that its amazing her back tire didnt lock up, she is lucky, and she needs to tighten the bolt? I think she gets the friggen point.

No harm, no foul. She has already said she wont let it happen again.

I was behind her when she pulled over A locked rear tire could have been real nasty for all of the other riders behind, and there were quite a few. But like others said, I think she understands now...we all make mistakes. As long as we learn from them, no harm no foul.

Doesnt matter how tight it is. If the Washer is bent over correctly, its not going anywhere.

I'd still invest in a torque wrench if I were you.

Also get a copy of the Factory Service Manual...I found one for my bike online for free, and has all torque specs for the bike. I really wish I would have printed it out sooner, it has so much information in it!

In the absence of the tang washer, you can use Loctite or stake the threads once the bolt is torqued. Then again, may be a faulty nut and stretches after the first use.
