Not sure I have a 32 or if I can find my impact wrench but willing to help if I can. I have some plumbing to do on the moho first and some things I need to do on the little bike but you are welcome to come on over.

I'll give you ca call.

I think Joel's question was just wether or not you needed parts for your garage art project

I've got some free time, and I think I'm the XL600 guy here. I understand now that you've got the 'strom to finish first.

Bring it down here

You just need to heat it up with a torch Zac
They use red loctite I believe

Then use a 1/2" drive ratchet

I usually place a pipe through the wheel to keep it from turning (when I remember to leave the chain on )

Fishy to the rescue. Basically I just need an extra hand.

Joel I'll be in touch. It's getting really annoying having it sit there.

I just helped Brian with the same problem. My $20 harbor freight electric impact gun, and a breaker bar through the wheel spokes did the trick.

Speaking of which, I have to do the same thing on my Strom. Geared way, way too high; glad it came with a stock sprocket.

You wanted a switch to turn it off anyway... Now you don't need one and it was FREE!


No I didn't tighten it down...
