It is a common error, especially for newer members here and elsewhere, to confuse these two "sprocket" names. About a decade or so ago it was discussed thoroughly because I made the same error...

transmission output sprocket vs engine sprocket: very different parts

Okay sorry.. left side (clutch hub nut and the sprocket to the left of it which I am calling the "compensating sprocket ", I was initially told 150-160. I put it on with an older "ingersoll rand " 1/2 inch. Drive pneumatic wrench. It's tight... somewhere between 120-150, I would say. That's (both) of the nuts in the primary case. The( right) side sprocket (the one that spins the chain (23 teeth) that spins the rear (wheel sprocket) 58 teeth, is the one I'm asking about.. the vote is 35-65 lbs., I guess?

By the way... thank you sooooo much!!! I would have probably done some damage. I hadn't remembered putting so much tourque on it before.. but I also didn't want a broke-loose chain tickling my leg on the highway! Again.. AND WITH ALL SENSARITY, THANK YOU GUYS. THAT VERY WELL COULD HAVE BEEN A LEG!

if you don't a a large obvious spring assembly on your motor sprocket shaft,you don't have a ''compensating sprocket''.yes or no?? the factory last used them in early '76.
