Cush drive and sprocket carrier.
on: June 03, 2018, 06:20:06 PM
Noticed a bit of vibration at high speed since changing last tyre.

So much so I checked balance of the wheel again and it seems spot on. Bearings seem fine too. Noticed though that sprocket carrier is lose in cush drive. On my other bikes I need a little tap to seat the sprocket carrier. This is quite lose. Can't remember if it was like this last time I changed the wheel or not. Or if I need new cush drive rubbers.

So thought I would ask you lot :-)

No mine is the same, sprocket and cush drive do not fit tightly, until main axle nut is tightened. this is normal.
