Default Re: true a sprocket

Good ideas, but before you do that, make sure the sprocket is flat. Use a straight edge across the sprocket and make sure that it is flat, and if there is any gap, the gap is consistent all the way around.

If it is not (my 48 tooth sprocket was not), mark where it is not flat with a Sharpie and remember which way it has to be tweaked. I clamped it in a vice with the part that needed to be bent up, inserted a pry bar and tweaked it slowly until it was flat according to the straight edge- then install and true as above.
29/10ths cubic inches of raw power.
