If the retainer plate fits in the slot, you should be in fine shape, CC. Just flip the retainer plate, as Kenny suggested, and the holes should line up.

The FA Brackets look good, Mike. Thanks to Cigar Mike for all his labor. I will mount my FA Brackets as soon as I receive them, and start testing them immediately.

What he said I just hit my retainer on the grinder ever so slightly & it went right on. It has to go on far enough to go into the groove or it won't turn to line up holes. Hope this helps.

I gave it my best shot

Tried to hit 2AM right on the mark. I feel I've been chancing it long enough with the loads I carry on the bike.

Interesting way of thinning the herd. I'm up past my bedtime. I need another beer.

I think that is my problem.. I can put the retainer on I can not turn it to line up with the holes... I tried tapping the sprocket onto the shaft, but that did not work... looks like i am slightly off. I will try to grind down the retainer a little...

Thanks for the help guys!
