I do get the damage that would arise if t his nut came adrift but I don't know if the 600 is the same but the locking washer locates on the shaft like the sprocket itself then is knocked over as usual ,once tightened I would have thought it very unlikely to be able to work loose without the tabs on the washer breaking ( both of them) and this in itself is pretty unlikely. I'll certainly keep an eye on it though. :thumbup

Just heard a Bob Dylan record on Radio 2.

Is that voice deliberate or is it the best he can do?.

What a racket.

Everyone to his/her own but listen to "she belongs to me" or " shelter from the storm"you might change your mind,then again.  :groan

Put it all back together  today,got to admit I put the original nut and washer back on,I never gave it a thought 'till I seen the post,hopefully it'll be ok,I've never put a new nut on any other bike,but obviously it's the thing to do.While I think about it does anyone have a problem putting the rear wheel back on their own?(gen 2) I always have a right game with that poxy caliper bracket,by now you're probably thinking "can this joker do anything?" I really don't normally have probs with working on my bikes,in actual fact I enjoy it,I only do basic servicing and cosmetic jobs,I wouldn't start stripping engines and box's etc.It's just that this particular job has been a ball ache what with not putting the cush drive rubbers in far enough and then couldn't shift the sprocket nut,can't win 'em all ay?still thanks for your replies it's always reassuring to know there's someone who'll help you out. :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

Really need some advise now,i've come to put this new sprocket on and it's so much thinner than the original ,there's no shoulder to speak of and I'm not sure whether to fit it because there's going to be no support as such or don't you need it?

That's an eye opener, you obviously know your stuff,probably the same reason you sometimes see a smallish guy win in arm wrestling. :think

Halsall Suzuki, who gave Danny Kent a ride at last weekends Brands meeting, have decided to disband and withdraw from racing, so that's one ride Danny won't be getting next year.

Yeah I seen this,you'd have to be pigsick,but at least he's shown a few possible teams he can ride a superbike because he wasn't afraid to go in at the deep end,you know, the last round at possibly the most competitive domestic championship in the world,he could have made a fool of himself,fairplay.

The grappling isn't exciting, agreed, although it is technical, plus can end a fight in seconds.
They were saying Khabib just bear hugs as a way to compress the opponents chest etc, sapping their energy. Although he did win with a choke hold.

The Floyd Mayweather fight was the promotion McGregor needed, as well as securing his life financially.
In a boxing contest, against a world champion boxer, the odds were against him.

If I was offered a pay cheque for 70 odd million, I would happily stand in the ring for a few rounds too - providing a hospital bed was guaranteed afterwards. :)

Only thing is would you be around to spend it! :z

The front sprocket nuts are always a bastard to undo, they are screwed on with Loctite 620, the hardest setting loctite. Bike in gear, chain guard off, piece of 3 X 2" timber through the spokes of rear wheel and across the top of the swinging arm to lock the rear wheel completely, socket and the longest torsion bar you have and swing on it, get a friend to support the bike to stop you pulling it over. In the end I had to take a hammer and blunt chisel to mine and drift it around but even then it did not give up easily.   
Good luck

This was my next plan,but went in this morning cable tied the front brake got my beloved wife to lean on the rear brake as hard as possible,my daughter to stop the socket from coming off the nut,a 3foot scaffold pole on my long bar.The first time the wheel skidded but the second try it come loose!you'd have thought I'd won the lottery,thanks for your replies anyway. :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

Got the 36mm socket today,"just pop in the garage and get the sprocket off"I thought, jammed the chain with a screwdriver through the links,got a long bar and short extention and tapped the socket it while pulling,2hours of fucking and blinding later do you think this whore of a nut would shift?not a chance, I tried everything I could think of,I had to stop and go and do a job.Tomorrow I'm going to put the rear wheel back put it in gear lock the wheel somehow and use a scaffold pole and just hope it moves,honestly,I've never known a nut so tight. :'(
