    Excellent new Vid by TDubsKid



    This is old hat for some, virgin territory for others and a good refresher for those of us who haven't done it for a while.

    Either way, a great job, as usual, by the Kid!
    He's very knowledgeable, thorough, explains things well and...is not hesitant to accept input , tips & advice from more experienced others.
    That's pretty rare.

    He also has a great sense of humor and his vids are very professional and fun to watch.
    He has a number of how-to-do-it vids on this You Tube channel....Camping, Riding and Wrenching. Good stuff.

    QUESTION: I haven't changed a TDub C/S sprocket before...when it is in place, and the locking ring is installed, is it supposed to "wiggle" a bit on the shaft or should it be solidly secured?
    Should it have a spacer or shim behind it?
    It does not show a shim on the parts diagram, but...

    All of mine wiggle. I’ve read it’s to help the sprocket self align with the rear.

    If he had kept his chain and sprockets clean they would have lasted a lot longer than 13,600 miles.

    He won't keep the new chain and sprockets clean either and I bet they wear out prematurely too.

    However, it was a good video.

    Good video. I'd put some grease on that rear wheel seal to help keep the seal pliable and water out.
