Thanks again for the info on Cheaha. The wife and I went up camping and hiking and got back last night.
If you can stand it being chilly it's a great time of year to go up since we practically had the campground to ourselves. It's a great spot and I can see how it would get busy in summer.

Just a Reminder

Just a reminder about my 3rd annual Camp N Ride coming up March 8th-10

If you have heard stories about my singletrack but have never been over to ride it, You need to make it to this event. There is a very high chance that I will be clear cutting all my timber after this year's camp out. It will be a very long time before they are like what they are now.

Just ordered the course arrows & tape

I'm currently making changes to the DS ride loops. So plan on seeing some new scenery along the way.

Here is this year's thread

JPD, your bikes are always broke. What gives man? You need some help with proper maintenance techniques..

Does yours use a bolt and washer, or a big nut and splined washer? Mine is nut and washer, which I have spare. Bolt and lock washer, we can probably source @ a hardware store. Or.... Call Chip @ Munns.
thanks alot! i have spares- i bought a bunch of little things when i took my bike to korea just incase. it uses the nut/special washer combo. that would be great if it is an o-ring seal. i havent had a chance to get the sprocket off but threw a good amount of oil all over the rear of the bike. i noticed a small leak comming from the wires that go into the igition cover. so i am not 100% on the source yet. i have to get the sprocket/chain off and clean it up and then start it up to see. just got to find the time.

no kidding but that costs extra lol. the original oil leak was caused when a korean mechanic installed the site glass with foreign material that actually ate the seal and started to leak. so that part i actually fixed. but i torqed the front sprocket to proper specs maybe need stronger loctite or less oil spraying all over it??? you are welcome to come over and expertise some stuff.

lol- i rebuilt the drz i used to have. while i was in korea i started to get a slight crank knock. so i had a korean mechanic tear it down and fix it. have not had really any major problems since. turns out the bike had too much oil and was dumping it into the Airbox which was dumping it right on the sprocket area. so i do need some help.

turns out the sprocket seal looks almost brand new. the orange oring looks worn. the oring sits basically in this spacer that goes over the spline. what is supposed to hold the spacer from slidding out from the seal? the sprocket or is the seal supposed to hold the spacer on? i can push the spacer back on and the seal does hold the spacer somewhat. i started the engine without the sprocket one to see how bad it leaked and it seemed if i pushed agaisnt the spacer it really didnt leak. so i am guessing i just need a new orange oring and when i put the sprocket back on the nut will hold it altogether??? sorry i cant post pics or i would upload one...

Yeah dirty, the sprocket and nut hold it all together. It has to have the correct torque and the correct sprocket. You don't, by chance, have an aftermarket front sprocket do you? Our LC4's are very particular about the front sprocket. Aftermarket sprockets arnt always the correct thickness. The thickness is important to the o-ring, which makes 90% of the seal. I didn't see an orange o-ring when I was going through some stuff but I bet I have one. OEM front sprocket, correct torque and a fresh o-ring, you'll probably be good to go.

The sprocket should be good then, the rubber dampners are the new ones designed for the 690.I do have a spare nut/washer and I found an orange O-ring. Let me know if I can help out. By the way, what torque are you using? It can get confusing, the bolt torque is much lower than the nut. With the washer bent over it should never fall off, loosen maybe, but not fall off.
