Sachs 505 gears welded question

Has anyone had your gears slip from the shaft and had to weld it.

This is my next project

Re: Sachs 505 gears welded question

Are the gears pressed on with a friction fit? If so, that's what green loctite is for.

Re: Sachs 505 gears welded question

No loctite. Welded will be much stronger

Re: Sachs 505 gears welded question

Yeah welding is a lot stronger. But it is set up that the gears can be replaced separate from other parts. If you weld them on to the shaft and you break off some teeth at some point, then you have to replace a lot more.

Dont reengineer the bike, fix it how it was designed to run.

Re: Sachs 505 gears welded question

I want welded gears.

If I have to replace so be it....its not meant to run an 80cc reed athena w hpi either.
