Rear Sprocket Studs
« on: Jun 21, 2022, 01:11 PM »
Hi folks long time no type! Hope you are all well?

I'm changing sprockets and chain and managed to get the front off after buying a DeWalt impact driver . While I had it I loosened the rear sprocket bolts only to find that two of the studs came loose and not the nuts  :013:

Anyone had this problem before? Should I struggle removing the seized nuts or can i get away with putting the new sprocket on with the bolt stud combo :027:

Just in case what is the torque required for the studs?

John

now for lots of things I would do that but a lot of forces going on around that area and would make me think twice . My simple mind would say the torque would have to be greater than the torque of the nut.
If you do go down that route I would be using some heavy duty threadlock for sure.

Thanks all,

There's a good chunk of meat of the stub that goes into the hub so going to go with a strong threadlock just to get me back on the road and keep an eye on it for the first few 100 miles  :027:

Hopefully my next post isn't "How do I remove a rear sprocket from my butt"  :5:
