I have an air compressor and for many years have simply used my impact driver to quickly spin off the Front Sprocket retainer bolt and washer. I change front sprockets often and especially on my 500. Make sure new sprocket and washer are properly aligned (yes you can screw this up) and hammer away until I hear the sound change. I have no clue what the actual torque is.

Not that I am going to change after 40 years but other than the obvious "over-torque induced metal failure" why is this a bad thing

You dont quit riding when you get old, you get old when you quit riding.
I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms
