So if you only use a nylock nut torqued to 120 pounds wont it hold? Will it spin off? Because you can use the staked nut and then still a nylock nut because there isnt enough thread for a staked nut and then still a nylock nut on top of that
Nylock does not provide adequate clamping load capability on its own, it deforms to capture. You need a minimum number of steel threads for clamping force and then the nylon ring above it. I suspect there is not enough space on the shaft's mature thread. Plus nylock actually increases holding strength after installation meaning it requires more torque to remove them than to install them. I am uncertain how that might affect the assembly during un-install considering the gear train is the resistance. You might need AlanH's nifty Warrior pulley-holding device.
I am pretty proficient with most tools...I have always serviced my bikes myself and done minor repairs....anyway if you follow the forum topics you will see the nut is a concern for many people here not only me and also...it never was a concern for me until I came across this forum. My biggest concern is that many reports point out that the nut did not loosen but the pulley still got loose. Just trying to find out what causes that to happen. My pulley nut is fine and has not moved since I got my bike and the pulley is still tight too but yes...I am concerned that the pulley might loosen with the nut still tight so that's why I check my bike now after every 500 km or so. Extra worry now is that the 6 pulley cover bolts will wear out from the constant undoing and fastening of the pulley cover hahahahahah
I have a 2003 Warrior and wanted to get another set of wheels for it. Are the rims all interchangeable? Or is there different axles and spacing with the newer models?

I have a 2005 Warrior and It came with the 3 star polished rims with the centers like a gun metal color, Blackish look to them. I just recently bought some 5 star rims that are polished and gun metal color also look just like the 3 stars but 5 star. They say the rims came off a 2010 model are 09...
Hi my 2006 Warrior now has 18,000 miles on the clock and is running fine. Two questions:
A. However after a good run when she is hot I hear all kinds of noises when she is idling that I don't hear when idling after I start her up from cold. So maybe it's normal but it has me thinking if it...

This morning I had to ride to my local DVA Office ( about 65k ). When I got to the first traffic light she just died. The good thing was she started straight away however, at each subsequent set of lights she did the same over and over. When I started her up in the DVA car park she was idling at...
