If my rear sprocket has a slight wobble when I ride is it ok? The tire has no wobble. Jus the sprocket. A friend told me I didn't tighten the screws in a star shape. I did but probably not as even as I could've. I'm already considering a replacement bc I don't like it lol

Any wobble in the back sprocket introduces a high risk of throwing the chain. Which is very bad when moving at speed.

Speaking from experience, being thrown from a motorized bicycle at speed due to this very thing is quite painful. I ended up going with a hub-mounted sprocket afterwards for this very reason.

Sadly they are expensive. I bought mine from BikeBerry but a few sites sell them.
"BBR Tuning Sprocket Adapter Assembly"

Other people have gotten away with the old sprocket approach but.... despite several attempts, i'm not going to trust my life on my alignment skills. So having a hub-mounted adapter ensures that the back sprocket will always be 100% aligned to the wheel. Haha.
