i got an oddessy hazard lite wheel it is good from what im seeing. I am having one problem. I had to change my gearing and am now running 25/10 but my sprocket is slightly bent which makes my chain tight in parts but loose in others. The sprocket is a stock eastern jane sprocket and is not very thick. Could i hit it with a hammer and flatten it out or will i just make it worse?

it will make it worse
all bikes have a tightspot in the chain
if you need to tighten your chain move it to the tight spot to do it
ive had a stock fit pro for 2.5 years now and everything is stock except for the backrim handle bars and brake cables and i do **** that wold **** a walmart bike up lol rims, handle bars, frame, exc. lol
but one way to keep your bike going is to clean and lube it with wd40 then 3n1 oil every other week then itll run as smooth as a good poop lol

actually, bending the sprocket back into place does work. I've done it on my friends but it's gonna bend again sometime so its best to start saving for a new one

i can either try and bend my 25t back to shape or put my old 33t back on and then i would be running 10/33 and i dont know what that would be like.
Bend it back or put the old sprocket on. What do you reckon?

You could atleast try to bend it back. It should work atleast a little.

Try to bend it back... you're going to have to buy a new sprocket anyways.
