swapping rims and sprocket. ..help

I purchased a set of OEM wheels from a fellow memeber and the rear wheel didn't come with a sprocket. ....I thought nothing if it since I already had one so I was curious do I need to rebalance my rim after I put my sprocket on the new wheel. Just to let ya know the wheel being swapped is a magazine wheel and the same size as my OEM wheel on my RGU. Everything the same other than design. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much.

It's good practice to balance all moving parts on either wheel (sproket, rotors etc), but may not be necessary. I've swapped rear wheels before without including the sprocket in the balance before and have had no issues. It's luck of the draw, and I personally would try running it as is without a balance.

Thank you for the assistance on this I appreciate it. Just curious about the bolts though any idea why something like that you may not reuse them ? Is it a torque thing ? Or ?

I'm not sure of why it is recomended to replace all boilts , but I'd think as much stress as they take, for a few bucks, I'd do it. As far as balancing goes, I stopped useing stick on weights years ago. Dyna beads work great! Installation DURING Tire install is the easiest, but you CAN install THRU the valve stem after the fact (just need some patience). Need a 2OZ bag per wheel for our size wheels. Good Luck!

Those bolts are made to stretch when installed. They will only stretch so far before breaking. Good idea to follow those recommendations.

They recommend replacing bolts because the threads stretch and won't grab/torque properly and run the risk of backing out. I always replace them. Small price for peace of mind.

I forgot to ask but how do you remove the sprocket off the wheel ? Where do you get those balance beads ?

Yes the tire came on the wheel. Based on the date of the tire it seems like its the original tire. I'm looking to get this rim and tire mounted in my bike ride it a little bit and then put in a claim for the tire with a nail in it with my tire and wheel coverage on ESP. I just would like to get my sprocket off and my bike off the lift, just don't know how to.
