Middle Sprocket Spacer

I believe it was 'Grinnin' that rode most of his Well Documented ride with-out said spacer. I think I remember that his final repair got a little pricey.

xzatx,
It is best to retain all of the 'removeables' in your garage. (The brake disc is rigidly bolted, do not remove.) The complete sprocket carrier could fall out any where while in route. Once it hits the ground, one could loose either spacer, bend a sprocket tooth (or puncture your foot while trying to protect the falling item) or get dirt in the sprocket carrier bearing.

CheapBassTurd That wasn't me who dropped the spacer.

I remember the thread tho. Not to say it won't happen.
I have made a hobby out of going back in to put in the spare parts left
over after a job.

My "famous" screw up was something like 8 rebuilds on the carb and couldn't
get it right until putting the needle seat back into the bike, then put it in upside down.
Glad I never swept the garage floor !! "Hey, what's this lil' thing?"

Another tip about posting. It's better to embed the video in the post than to provide a link. Unfortunately, vBulletin and YouTube don't work together to make that an easy thing to do.

In your original post, you had this link:

https://youtu.be/rAj8BumXA1s

That works fine to take you to the video, but it won't work to embed the video in the post. vBulletin doesn't like the 'https' and it doesn't like that URL. Unfortunately, YouTube will have about three URLs for the same video.

To find a URL that it likes, I go to your channel and find the video. Grabbing the link: h ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAj8BumXA1s from within your list of videos, I remove the 's' from the 'https': h ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rAj8BumXA1s and voilą, it embeds!

The middle spacer whether mentioned in the video or not is critical for any
newer riders/ members reading. It prevents the torqued axle from pressing in
a side load on the bearings. The two outer units will have a side load which
they aren't shaped for. Failure will occur.
CBT, were you the guy who lost the middle spacer while on an ambitious, multi-thousand mile ride, and experienced the consequent wheel bearing failure?

As I recall, a kind stranger met along the way permitted his bike to be cannibalized, yielding a spacer for the ailing bike, permitting limping on to a higher level of maintenance.

In that incident, we learned what happens when one is short the "middle" spacer.

------------------

Otherwise, I'd wonder at the purpose and usefulness of submitting a sprocket, cush drive, and middle spacer to a shop for a tire change.

xzatx just checked for that spacer you are all referring to. it's attached to the sprocket on the inside, i had to really pull it out. it does not fall by itself.. mine was really snug.

anyway, the video is about how to release the wheel and removing it. maybe ill make another one, on how to put it back together. and show all related spacers.


i'll note it in the video, no problem.
