Re: Front sprocket nut fell off! Help!
Sorry to revive a dead thread. But, I changed the chain and sprockets on my bike. We had a nice day and my gf and I took it for a spin. It ran fine, rode great. We rode probably 60 miles or so. Nothing huge but enough to get the first one of the year under us. Then, last night a buddy of mine and I took ours for another, colder ride. We were at the last 5 miles of our ride headed back to his house. We got on this interstate and about 1 mile on the interstate we played a little. The last time I looked at the speedometer was at 96. It climbed a little more before it happened. Heard the noise, couldn't catch a gear to beat hell. Sure enough it come loose, smacked the plastic sprocket housing, ripped a chunk of it out and it brought a piece of the case with it. I spilled all of my oil all over the road. Oh joy.
