It's pretty simple, need a impact if the chain is off, and want it done right.

what else is there to try. serious impact and cheater bars. the impact wrinch aint no punk. the cheater bar and rachet near broke. i have a 1 inch drive impact but i aint gonna try that on it that thing will twist everything off. we are oil field workers all of our tools are powerful enough, im just trying not to tare everything up. i was thinking of heating with a torch but maby there is somthing other than unscrew.

if i get time thats just what ill do "mc unlimited" but i dont wanna go pay someone if its just me holding my tool all wrong. ill probably look at it some more and decide if it is really worth all the trouble just to go one down. i have the two up in the back already. if i do it its gonna be changed back and fourth untill i find the gearing i like the best. i guess i better bring it in because i wont be happy untill i can do it myself..

Like CCMatthews said, check to make sure it is a right-handed thread. If not, you're goin' the wrong way with the wrench when you try to loosen it. My ZZR 1200 manual shows 94 ft-lb for the sprocket torque. Not that -awful much. Oh yeah, make sure you flatten the washer too before you try to loosen the nut.

It's not reversed thread. I just changed out my front and sprocket on my ZX-10R. Do this: with the chain on, put the bike in first gear, put a long block of wood in the spokes of the rear wheel, use a breaker bar with a cheater bar.

Leverage is your friend if you dont have impact tools to make the job easier.

Did you bend the lock washer back? If you didn't it won't come off. When I did my '07 it was a pain in the , but it eventually came off.

make sure to use an impact socket (black ones) and use at least 130lbs for the impact gun.

I've been trying to get mine off this whole weekend and finally caved in on buying an impact wrench. $55 from Habor Freight with some WD-40 and the sucker came off after 30 mins of holding the trigger down. Good luck man.

Don't use very much heat.
There is a seal on the countershaft, too much heat will jack it up and you will be splitting the cases to replace it.

Don't use the impact if you are not using the chain/jam the rear wheel approach. You will be hammering the transmission gears and you can see how that would be bad.

Do use penetrating oil
Do use chain/jam the rear wheel
Do be patient

when a 1/2" impact won't do...I have a 3/4" ingersol that rips off just about anything, or just breaks the f*cking socket.

+1 to the above, however when i changed the front sproket on my 2005 SV650S it had red loctite on it, from the factory.

Use a torch!!! but as bumblebee not too much. With little heat and a little leverage it should break loose
