I kinda have a question about this... I've got the Prevailing Torque Nut and I noticed it was larger than the stock nut. I don't know what mm it is. But anyway, what are you guys using trail side to change your sprokets? Are you seriously taking along a breaker bar and a fatty socket? Is there another, lighter to pack method of doing a quick chagne in the field?

When changing to an aftermarket sprocket, dont assume the stamp for the number of teeth face outward. Got my 16 T from Fred and found that to keep the teeth on the same plane as stock, the side with the stamp needed to face inward :wink:

Don't confuse activity with progress.
