This is a picture of a 2.5 inch round timing sprocket. The sprocket on my quad is a 5 inch round.





This sprocket spins next to my gear shifter and has been up till now unguarded. A few times my foot has hit this but never has it acted like it would cut me. Really I knew I should build a guard just to be safe I guess I didn’t do it fast enough. Saturday night I cut my toe on it while shifting from 1st to 2nd. I was able to shift from 2nd to 3rd but that hurt so I didn’t go in to 4th. This is a video of the pass it happened on. Sorry it was taken with my cell phone so its not the best quality.

This is pictures of my shoe and toe. 13 stitches later I’m pretty lucky I didn’t get in to any tendons or bone. Its going to hurt for a while but will be just fine.

I am healing pretty quickly like I said it was pure luck it didn't hit the bone. Saturday night trying to sleep sober without any pain pills that was rough. I called my buddy that is an ER doc first thing Sunday morning and got some pain pills. I didn't even need any today. I (the wife) will take the stitches out Friday. I am in a 5k Saturday I plan on making it to.

Damn that looks alot better, i hate foot injuries i had to get 7 stickes right on the bottom of my foot cause some jackleg probably threw his beer bottle in the water and ended up breaking which led to my drunk stumbly [censored] stepping on it.
