Default Re: Prepping for the 1st build

The zip-ty or tape thing is an assist device to help center the rag joint sprocket on the hub while you tighten the mounting bolts. They are placed directly on the hub between the hub and center hole of the sprocket. You still need to check it though both for centering and lateral play as you tighten it up.
Remove the zip-tys or tape when done.
