I am STRUGGLING! right now to get my front sprocket off of my 06 zx10r. I have done front sprockets b4...why is this being such a bitch top remove? ANY help will be greatly appreciated
do a search, many will say use an Air tool, some swear like myself a breaker bar is all that is needed...the main thing remember it's a normal thread, be in neutral gear and rear brake tight,and the Washer is bent back flush...good luck will be going through that next week but don't think I will have a problem what so ever now that I have done it a few times on the 10 but my setup is different as I have a hydrolic lift and it's a little easier, so like I said do a search and see if you can find members that have suggestions on your setup...which means of course you need to give your setup or what your trying :heyyou:. :wink:I am STRUGGLING! right now to get my front sprocket off of my 06 zx10r.

25 gallon tank plus snap on impact gun...nada!
idk what it was rated but i got it from my mechanic friend and it was pretty strong. Me and my buddy went out there wit a big ass breaker bar and plenty of pb blaster and heavy pressure on the rear break n still nothin. Could it of been crossthreaded from the factory??? Cuz this is really obscene. im bout to order a new nut and cut that thing off cuz im totally frustrated.
I don't know if you got it off yet. I tried to take mine off also and I was unable to. Some people are fortunate to have an impact to do it. I was not. I do not weigh enough to beable to do it. I was working on it at a friends house. I left it there for a day and while I was gone. He did it. He is about 275 lbs. It is supposed to be about 92 foot lbs of torque. It sure did not feel like it. I think its because the sprocket heats up causing the nut to stick. Anyway I hope you get it done. I havent tried it yet cause it started to snow again. good luckI am STRUGGLING! right now to get my front sprocket off of my 06 zx10r.

Many since 04 have had issue like yourself but eventually manged to remove it either themselves or by a shop.I finally got the thing off bout a half hour ago. Friend of mine came by with a stronger impact gun and I have been sprayin pb blaster on it. 1st try the thing spun right off. FINALLY I can move on to the rest now. Thx for all the help. Oh and I talked to a cpl shops and they said some 10r's and 14's have this problem so don't feel to bad if you are struggling like I was.
