    Let's Talk Rear Sprocket Fasteners

    Buying Yamaha OEM fasteners can be expensive and are a one time use fastener. Since I have been changing a lot of sprockets lately I figured I would explode my options. I've seen you all talking about Stover nuts but it looks like they are also a one time use nut. I'm currently running spring washers and standard nuts, which is all I had onhand at the time. Probably not the best choice after watching these videos. What are you using?






    Then you have Nord-Lock Washers which might be an excellent solution.

    Harley,
    Maybe Nordlock may be a wise choice

    I figure for $10 for 10 pairs I would give it a try,
    Keeping some parts of the Harley together can be annoying,
    I don't like thread lock on normal parts, Possible parts that thread into water jackets, But not on regular nuts and bolts,
    I have to snug in the running boards yearly, So Ill give these a try,

    Nice. I'll be giving them a try as well on the project bike. Just ordered a few.

    What's the problem? out of three Two and a lot of sprocket changes I have not had one come loose. I always reused the old ones.

    I have been using these

    They are a nice steel reproduction of the factory ones.

    Phelonius, you are probably correct that the bolts don't loosen over time but I haven't been wrenching on motorcycles as long as you have. I did notice when I replaced the rear sprocket on my 06 that the nylon lock nuts were shot. I had to use lock washers because I like peace of mind.

    Ive went as far on machinery to take a hammer n chisel and mar the nut/threads to keep them from coming out, but on the TW just reuse the stock fastners over again, they will work for several times imo. A dab of blue locktite works good too. just don't use the red or green lol....
