    Do I REALLY need to replace Rear Sprocket Bolts?

    Hi everyone,

    I see the Buell Service Manual calls for replacing the rear sprocket bolts, says not to re-use. Has anyone here had experience with this? Is it really necessary to replace these? I wasn't anticipating this so hoping I don't need to wait a week to get my bike back together.

    Thanks everyone!
