4 hours and a CS sprocket

It all started great, a nice mild fall day and a 16T CS sprocket....after 1 hour I take the bike to the dealer who wont remove the sprocket because that is an insurance liability to allow to ride home with a hand tightened sprocket nut. I go home disheartened but not ready to give up. I search the zx10r.net website to see a guy claim he used a 32mm socket...I have a 32mm socket! Aha! We have the answer, the 27mm nut just rounds off, but the other surface behind the nut is 32mm! Another 35 minutes and the SOB is off...my father had to step on the 36" breaker bar to bust it loose.
Just thought I'd share my horrible friday....now its raining so no fun test ride.

Yeah, compressed air and an impact wrench is the trick. Good point on usin' the tire instead of the tranny to hold it too.

I'v got a 16t front on the way. I think goin' up in the back at the same time would be a bit much for me. Hopefully the 16t won't be too much.
