Default sprocket.

hi all. just got a sprocket carrier to replace the old one on my zephyr, a stud snapped on the original. is it easy to extract the broken stud and replace it, is it worth the bother?. just might be handy to have a spare thats all.

Easy mate. Centre pop the centre of broken stud, drill out with bigger and bigger drills until just smaller than thread core diameter, tap in a stud extractor or a square file tang and slowly inch it out.
