Help doohickey balancer shaft screwup

I installed the eagle mike tensioner spring today. While taking it apart I accidentally pulled the balancer idler shaft lever out ( don't ask)

One washer fell and darn near went into the case but I was able to get it with a magnet. While fishing for it I set the sprocket assembly down. When I went to put it back together I noticed another larger thin washer laying there.

The fiche of the balancer set up does not show 2 washers but the larger one seemed to fit perfectly on the back of the sprocket and the other washer had to come from that area.

I put it back together, the doohicky and adjustment seems to work and it runs OK but I am still unsure if it is right. Any ideas help?

One on each side....if I recall correctly it is obvious which goes where, but, I think the thicker one goes inward. It's smaller that the outer washer and is the one that usually drops into the sump as you say.

I put the thin one next to the bearing as it fit perfect there and then the other thicker one (that fell) on next. The fiche only shows one. I would post a pic link but have to do 15 posts first.

I think I am going to pull it apart again

92026B is the thicker slightly smaller washer that fits nicely on the shaft and the 92022A is the larger thinner washer that goes outward. That is how it must be or the sprocket will be spaced out too far and the chain will run in the wrong location possibly capable of damaging anything it touches etc. If the chain and teeth don't line up correctly they wear fast! It will also put more stress on the sprocket bearings.

You need to go back in and install those washers correctly....sorry.

Yes that is the feeling I am getting. May have to reuse the rotor bolt but it has only been put in and run at idle

THe real issue I have is that 92022a is already there and not missing so I now have a spare washer that I have to find out where it goes. The extra washer I have is the exact size of 92022a and fits perfectly on the back side. I will inventory parts as I take them off compared to the fiches and make sure I did not miss it somewhere else.

Oh well, lessons learned

Thanks for the response. Will take some pictures this time.

I know how ya feel about wondering if ya did or didn't.Greatest tool I have in the shop is a nicon digital camera I was given.When taking things apart I lay out in order I remove and take pictures of every thing then load on the computer to see better..It takes a little time but not as long as taking stuff apart just to find out it was right.Don't like worrying about things when riding...Just took time to remember to start taking the pictures..At first had a note on tool box now just part of doing things (Note still on tool box)BTW
