Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

My rear sprocket had some lateral movement, so I did several things in an attempt to minimize it as much as possible. I took my rear wheel off and removed the sprocket. First, I tried to find different ways of mounting it to see if that would help. It did not. So I decided to go back to the original way I had it mounted. Before I re-installed it, I noticed that the teeth were developing points and rough edges, so I filed the points and rough edges off. I re-installed the sprocket, put my hub back together and put the wheel back on the bike. I started her up, pulled the clutch in, stopped and picked up the back wheel. I let the clutch out and gave her some gas. The lateral play isnt totally gone, but I seem to have reduced it a fair amount. I still need a new sprocket and an adapter eventually, but I think the rag joint will do ok for now.
