trackaddict Any of the ~600ft/lb electric impacts will knock those off like it's nothing. Not to mention you aren't putting undue pressure on your wheels!!!

Capncalyx SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!!!!!



For the record i took the one off my 636 last summer with a breaker bar. Yes 2x4 in rear wheel, sucks pulling towards your face, breaker bar bent slightly but didnt break the wrench.

Yeah OP come on! GAWD!!!! Learn to be one with the bike. Find out what it's spirit animal is. Then and ONLY then will the front sprocket nut release itself for you. Namaste.

NO. It's right-handed.

I'll answer that question. My swing arm indicator marks are spot on and the chain will be straight as long as I use the leading edge of the axle blocks to align. That being said, I've read all over the place that those marks are unreliable. Weird. Why would the production tolerances be so poor for some swing arms.

Oh, ya. As for the original question, I couldn't get my front sprocket nut off with a breaker bar and 2x4 method but I spun it off in 10 seconds with my Ryobi 18V impact driver.

ddipaola I ended up wedging a number of rags and a baseball bat between the swingarm and wheel spoke I do have an impact wrench but it wasn't enough. Either way that stupid pain in the rear is off and the rags prevented any damage to the vehicle. I think I'm gonna say screw the special washer and just waterjet out my own (without teeth) and then safety wire the OEM or an aftermarket nut. Will probably make my life a lot easier than having to screw-drive and mallet that stupid washer over and over and fatiguing/replacing it.
