    I took my sprocket off yesterday to scrub all the crap off it and when putting it back on i've stripped two of the studs. Gotta bring it to the dealer to get fixed. If they can get the studs out it going to be an easy fix. I need a new sprocket carrier it'll be an expensive mistake me thinks. i read the wrong torque setting of the service manual. I am a fool.

    Don't want to rub salt into the wounds Keith but in hindsight wouldn't you
    have been better off leaving it attached to the carrier just to clean it?
    What torque setting did you use to nip them up? it should be 55NM
    You must have given it some to strip the studs, as you say could be
    emptying your wallet big style, don't do yourself down it could happen
    to anyone of us, the only positive note is by telling us about your
    experience we can all learn from it, good luck with the cost of ;)

    mate funny enough my torque wrench was set to 55 but theres another torque setting of 30 for that aswell. i assume now its 30. 55 fucked it up.


    rear sprocket to socket carrier is 55
    rear sprocket studs to socket carrier is 30

    to right rowly i wont take it off again. it is pretty clean though.

    Hi keith, just looked at the torque settings again in the repair manual and it states the following

    Rear sprocket to carrier 55NM
    Rear sprocket studs to sprocket carrier 30NM use new fixings.
    The way I would interpret that is 55NM for the nuts & 30Nm for
    the studs only if you are replacing them, its very ambiguous?
    Is that how you read it?

    was going to take my chain off yesterday to clean it , but its another one of them things thats best left on the bike untill you need a new one, coz you need a tool to split it ,then a new link to re- assemble it , was going to attack it with a screw driver untill i read the manual , then decided to leave it on after all

    Very wise Andy, splitting the chain on my push bike years ago was bad enough :x

  10. Funnily enough I cleaned my rear sprocket and chain last weekend too! I left the sprocket on the wheel though. How do you know how tight to do the nuts? The only ones mentioned in my manual are the rear axle (110Nm) and the adjuster bolts (27Nm). Anyway, after riding the bike for a few hours the chain and sprocket look almost as filthy as they did to start with!

    ive got all the critical torque settings.
    Rear sprocket to carrier 55NM
    Rear sprocket studs to sprocket carrier 30NM use new fixings.

    i used 55nm and buggered it up so ill use 30 next time. if it is supposed to be 55 either the studs are shit or my brand new torque wrench is shit.

    There is a workshop manual available with all the torque settings and all the information
    you need on disc for your D675,I got mine on ebay for around £3, I'm not certain but they
    maybe a copy to view on here somewhere?
