Re: Rag Joint
any inconsistancy in the thickness of the rubber can give you fits when it comes to a true running sprocket. Sometimes, if the difference is not too bad you can compensate by adjusting the tightness of the sprocket bolts.
If possible contact your vendor and request a replacement rag joint if your rubbers are way out of wack.
I've never tried it but it might be possible to grind/sand down the thicker parts to match, which might be quicker than waiting for parts to be shipped.
