Removing the front sprocket 929

Dear jesus this thing is on there ! How can I remove this guy and not literally turn the motor over?

What tool did you guys use while changing your front sprocket. Leave it in gear, use the rear brake? What kind of leverage do I need to break this guy loose?

Use a rattle gun.
Or put the bike in gear and stand on the brake while heaving on a long bar.
Sometimes you can grip the sprocket teeth with mulit-grip pliers as well but you have to take care not to break the cases.
Rattle gun is the best way for sure.

Re: Removing the front sprocket 929

Never herd it being called that before "Rattle Gun" but Bladeracer is right a Windy gun or battery impact gun will do the trick.

Re: Removing the front sprocket 929

Indeed, I would recommend an impact wrench, however I had never heard the terms rattle gun or windy gun before. learn something new each day I guess.

Re: Removing the front sprocket 929

Maybe somebody Loktited it in place.
Try heating the bolt to break up any adhesive on the threads. Don't get it too hot though.
Have you tried the "belt it with a punch" method already?

There is no reason to put it in gear if you still have the chain on, just stand on the brake to lock the wheel in place.

Re: Removing the front sprocket 929

I've used a broom handle through the swingarm and rear wheel. Have to break it loose before removing the chain and rear wheel though..

I have tired rattle gun, nothing. Tried the manual impact, nothing. Breaker bars, with a tire iron in the spokes and swing arm, nothing... Heating is going to be my last option, which I plan on trying this weekend.
