hi!

i was adjusting my chain and i noticed some play when i start turning the wheel it takes a about 1/2 AN inch of travel or less before the chain sporcket starts to move...let me put it in another words, i grab the wheel and start turning it and i can turn it a bit before the the sprockets starts to move. is this normal?

A new axle:D and might as well do both hubs @ the same time save yourself some hassle later

If youre doing a new axle you should get bearings as well.

no they are saying your sprocket hub. the piece that your rear sprocket bolts to. your axle nut might be loose, but if its been loose for a while it wore out the splines on your axle. my warrior did this, and when i tried tightening it it mushroomed the axlecarrier. mainly because you shouldn't tighten it toooo tight with a 3 ft pipe wrench and an extra 3 ft pipe on the end. :lol: some axles come with this piece and a new locking axle nut. :thumbsup: so look into one of them cause it would be much better than another stock one. plus new wheel hubs would also further bulletproof the back end for roughly $500-600....
