    I got a new 47 tooth sprocket by JT sprocket. I took the old sprocket off and noticed that the new sprocket has a 1/16th or less indetion on one side. The old sprocket is flat on both sides. So when I go to install the new sprocket flat side down the bolts and lock bars won't fit in the indention. I will need to buy new bolts and some other kind of locking tabs. Has anyone else had this problem?



    Thanks, Tom

    yep. i ditched the locking tabs and added a flat washer and a locking washer. 4k miles since i swapped the rear and no problems.

    No locking tabs for me either. Washer and lock washers. Double nut it if you want (may require longer bolts).
    If you can't find it, grind it

    Just make sure you keep an eye on them for the first 50 miles or so. You may need to re-torque them.

    Same for me. I made the locking tabs work but really contemplated using lock-washers instead...

    Grade 8 bolts, flatwashers, and nuts and LocTite.

    I've decided to switch out the OEM locking tabs and go with traditional graded bolts, washers, lockwashers, double nuts, and lock tite... Only thing that bothers me is the harware I bought is 13mm.

    I removed the locking tabs... couldn't find graded nylocks. I did find graded jam nuts, but went ahead and used double-nuts, lock-washers and lock-tite.



    Going from 14/50 to 14/47 is very noticeable! It cruises waaaay easier on the pavement and has longer times between shifts, with a much easier going cruise at 50mph. I am a tiny bit concerned about the crawl-ability offroad though. I can tell I lost a little in that department. Some of the trails we run in Oregon get pretty technical and the TW in stock form can just put up stuff. I'm hoping to still have that ability. I'll post on here once I get a chance to run some trails and test it out.
