New Front Sptocket

I have some extra brake caliper paint, so I figure to give it a lil something something. What do u'all think?

By the way, whaz the ft-lbs for the torgue to tighten? I was told it's 60ft-lbs. Does that number sounds normal?

Disclaimer : I know I spelled the "sprocket" wrong

yes, if you cant find the spec just torque it to between 50 - 60lb, as long as you bend the washer plate down to lock the sprocket bolt, you are good to go.

I have 2 questions...
1. how do you know when you need a front sprocket change?
and
2. since you painted your sprocket "red", does that mean you need more torque to tighten it now ?

it might, after you lube or wax you chain, you should wipe off the excess lube off, that should limits the splash.

if you arent going to re-install the cover, you might want to purchase a hose holder to keep the hose away from sprocket.

it is recommended to change sprockets when you replace your chain, but if they are in good shape, you do not need to, but like i said earlier, it is recommended.

maybe they just try to rip people off by saying that...lol

interesting.

you painted the sprocket red.

isn't the friction on the chain to the sprocket just going to eat up the paint on the teeth?

and if so, doesnt that risk getting paint chips all up in your chain rollers?

thaz definitely a good concern. I was worried abt that so I made sure the paint is thin. And yes, the paint on the teeth part was eaten right up but then got splashed off as the chain spin.

But then again, I did all that for nothing since it's highly suggested by everyone that I should put the cover back on.

no worries. sometimes you gotta undergo seemingly pointless projects to help you learn how to be a better wrench.
