F3 Front sprocket locking tab washer
 
1 Attachment(s)
Is it ok to flatten it out, then re-bend after installing a sprocket?
No need to put a new one in if installing a new sprocket?

And while we are on the topic, does it really need to be bent for the nut to stay in place?? Seems like such a janky solution...
Thanks guys.

You can unbend it and reuse it.
Just bend over another part, not the same.

its just a safety precaution, as you are not using Loctite.

You will surprised at how quickly it will come loose without the tab lock.... trust me on this one. That shaft has a lot of inertial loads that will overcome even loc-tite.

The bent washer method of locking a nut is decades old and works as good as, or better than anything. "Janky" is is not.
