so i got my new odyssey wombolts and kink sound sprocket today. the manual says the first installation step is to install the sprocket. i slide the sprocket on and when i tighten the drive bolt it makes the sprocket crooked and allign with the crank arm. when its loose and just barely sitting in the sprocket its straight and in line with the spindle. when i go to tighten it goes back to being in line with the crank arm. is there something i'm doing wrong? thanks.

Haha, The sprocket bolt does not have to be tightened all the way down. It stops forward and backward movement, not side to side. When you tighten down your crank arms, that should stop the side to side movement in your sprocket.

and it says in the instructions that came with the cranks to thread the bolt in a bit then hammer the sproket onto the the spindle
once thats done you can tighten the locator bolt

i did read the instructions.
i guess i didn't knock it in all the way cuz it keep coming out everytime i tightened the bolt.
