I'm getting set to replace the front and rear sprockets for the first time. I've done this on other cycles before, but not this one.
So, could I get the "short list" of R+R Tips 'n Tricks?
Is the front sprocket a reverse thread? Is there any locker compound used by the OEM, or do I put any on during the replacement?
I usually stand on the rear brake and use a breaker bar with a 1/2 in drive to break the CS nut loose. Good enough?
I know to inspect the oil seal behind the front sprocket, and look for wear on the steel cylinder that the oil seal presses against.
I know not to re-seat the oil seal too deep, that there is no "bottom" depth to re-seating it. It seats to "not past flush" depth.
I think I inspect the rear wheel bearings while I'm at it, and re-grease them?
Do I need any consumables? A new locking tab ring for the CS nut?
Anything else I should know before I get in there?
