Hi - Quick question on the V2 sprocket. I have a bent mast stuck in the sprocket hole. In trying to loosen it, I managed to loosen the brass insert in the sprocket itself - now the whole assembly (mast and insert) spins inside the sprocket.

I can replace the sprocket, but thought I'd see if there are any ways to salvage this. Next time I'll try a little heat before I turn the wrench...

Time for a new sprocket! Sometimes they use a bit too much Loctite on them at the factory :o
