Bluhduh 17t Wont come off... WTF?

Is there a trick to getting the sprocket off the counter shaft? I've got everthing removed and out of the way but the sprocket won't budge.

I've tapped it with the 32mm socket and a hammer to unseat it, tried to gently pry it off, etc.
What am I doing wrong?

30 minute job my ass!

Sounds like it may be rusted on the shaft

It's only got a 112 miles on it and I can't see any rust.

Something is totally fooked up then. The sprocket on my 03 slides on and off by hand without any effort. Maybe the Trolls in Mattighofen pounded the pooch and bugger'd the splines. Looks like your gonna have to, I hate to say this take it to the stealer and go through the warranty
Sorry

The Dealer, ugh. The spines look to be properly alligned on the shaft... anything is possible I suppose...
I've got a blow dryer strategically zip-tied and heating the assmbly up, we'll see what happens in a few minutes.

Try to get a gear puller around it if there's room.

Otherwise maybe a slide hammer with a "L" shaped grabber on the end
may bugger up the gear though

good luck

Something To Try

I had this happen on a WR 450 once I put the chain back on the front and then put the bike in neutral. Next I had a friend push and pull the chain to rotate it back and forth while I got a large socket and dead blow hammer tapped the sprocket while it was moving. After about three hits it slid right off. i just ended up being real dry in the center and was stuck.

mmm maybe a larger hammer?

seriously, really silly question here but you did remove the nut on the end of the shaft right? Then also the retainer washer that folds against one of the nut flats?

If you have removed both of these items and it still doesn't want to come of easily, maybe a light pry out with a bar and a soft blow to the shaft will pop it loose. If you don't have a soft blow hammer, thread the nut back on but not tight against the sprocket then with a 2x4 or some other piece of wood do the same procedure..... pry out the sprocket and tap the shaft in.

You don't want to damage the end of the shaft/threads or the internals of the transmission so don't strike the end of the shaft with extreme force even though you my want to right now...

Scorpion is right - Gear Puller is how I got mine off.

After I bent that washer down, it slid out really easily.

Luckily Napa is four blocks away from home! Napa had a very small gear puller, $15, that worked perfectly.
The sprocket is off, finally. The inside of the sprocket is coated with some sort or white thread locker like material. This is what was keeping it from coming off.
Anyone else has this stuff on their 17t sprocket?

I'm off to put the 16t on now, with a nice helping of anti-sieze!

Get hold of a gear puller, or if it's a new bike take it back to the dealer and let them sort it.
