06-07 R6 front sprocket nut solution
« on: June 19, 2013, 04:26:51 PM »
Someone else must have figured this out. If you need to change gearing often you can't be using the clunky (expensive) single use Yamaha OEM front sprocket nuts.  :banghead: So what is everyone using and where do I get it? It would be nice to be able to change gearing more than once at Summit Point in a couple of weeks.

Thanks,
Chris

Reuse the same nut, but don't fold in the to lock it.

Options for keeping it in place; silicon or safety wire.

I considered locktite and silicone but it seems a bit iffy. I didn't mention, in my case the chain runs between my legs so I REALLY don't want it deviating from it's intended path. Lock wiring would require drilling the sprocket shaft which looks very HARD (in a least 2 senses of the word).

I would use the stock retainer and fold it. Just chalk it up to being safe. I had a drive sprocket come loose and lock up at motor cross track. Put me on the ground hard could have been deadly. All because I didnít use lock tite. Do yourself a favor and be safe
