I'm sorry to hear that, Rufus. Thank you reporting your problem. If I may ask, do you have a 45T rear sprocket, or a larger rear sprocket? Did you use a 5/16-inch bolt, or a 3/8-inch bolt? Also, did you keep the OEM "chain slipper" behind the countershaft sprocket, or did you install a sealed bearing roller in that position?
