recently changed my belt drive to a chain,
all is good apart from I havent got the bolt that stops the sprocket nut from coming loose,
i thought the one that holds the lockwasher on the belt sprocket would fit,
It doesnt as its to big,
What size is the thread size on the chain drive sprocket?
i will admit imperial threads are a bit of a new thing for me,
Alternitavely does anyone know the actual name of part or it part number?
Thanks in advance for your input

What kind of chain drive did you get?
What year is the bike

The bike is an 08 sportster, not sure who made the conversion as it was bought used from ebay, I came with a flat rear sprocket and a spacer,
It looks like it would have worked with no spacers but would have ran close to the frame.
I had to make a spacer for the front though to make the chain run straight,
As look would have it I found a small bolt with the right thread so all is good.
