QuoteSuper Dave:That was almost "Sixth Sense" like....
QuoteWhat gets me (and maybe this is indicative of a "repair shop" versus "fixing it oneself") is the shop I took it to told me it couldn't be saved. It had to be replaced. They said that sometimes they can weld the sprocket on but there wasn't enough material on the shaft left to weld. (this was the ceap way) plus, they'd have to replace the sprocket and chain. Meaning big $$ in repairs.the guy who bought it told me he tapped the shaft and threaded a new nut on, using the existing sprocket and chain. No welding, no replacement of parts, just a little time and effort and he should be back on the road soon.I'm actually happy for him that he could fix it so easily. Now I can go get that R1 I've always wanted! (this repair was my excuse to step up to the R1)
