hey Roy want to barrow my sig for the day.

I have had to use a impact once on one of those, the dumb ass before me put it on that way. had someone stand on the rear brake and turned the sprocket so it was hitting the chain insted of putting the trans in gear, but that was just a have to. but the one one on my Raptor when i knocked the lock back I turned the nut off with my hand

I've had to do the same. I could NOT break the DRZ sprocket originally. Had a breaker bar turning the engine over and it wouldn't budge. I only ask the wife to the garage when I really need to, and this was one of those times. "Honey, could you stand on that lever there, it's about to get loud in here!"

Did y'all miss the part where I said "heat" it up? A heat gun goes a long way in loosening up the loctite that is typically found on that nut. In fact you had better use it putting it back on. GSXRs especially the 600 can't/won't keep a tight sprocket nut. I have resorted to drilling the edge of the nut and safety wiring it to the sprocket. And even then I've had then pop the wire and still be loose. Never had one come completely off.

Anyway a heat gun used in moderation of course since you can screw up a seal with too much heat down there. That nut will come loose fairly easy after heated. Just sit on the thing holding rear brake as you normally do and pull up, it's that easy.

I would argue that there is less chance of an idiot screwing up something with an impact wrench, the transmission in neutral and the rear brake on than putting heat in close proximity to a rubber seal that keeps engine oil in.

But hey, what do I know.

You are missing the point it gets hot down there to begin with. But hey if you can't operate a heat gun correctly then you shouldn't be doing the job to begin with IMO. And by all means go rattle those gears with a jack hammer and next up will be "what's the procedure for splitting the cases to repair gears".

And I don't know anything and from now on I'll be that guy who observes the blunders of motorcycle mechanics on ADV. Should be a up and coming good show. Carry on....

Let's wait until the sprocket actually gets here before we start fighting over how to remove it... Or we can start arguing over how to remove the sprocket cover first... It may fall off in my hand when I actually TRY to remove it...

What fun is that?

I've got access to a 1" drive impact wrench and trailer mounted compressor that delivers 825CFM at 150psi. Also can get a hold of an oxy/acetylene rig. We'll get that sprocket loose!

Front mud guard came with plastic rivets and I don't have a "suitable riveting tool" think a heat gun will work? Super glue? Testors modeling cement? I'm so lost.....
