Need a little help

Sorry i might be posting this in the wrong section but i need some help and i want the max number of people to see this.

I'm currently changing my sprockets and chain on my 98 900RR and ive got the back wheel off no prob, the problem is the front sprocket. i have a haynes manual and a honda service manual for this bike but in both all it says is "unscrew the bolt holding the front sprocket on then remove the sprocket from the chain" my question is this: is the front sprocket bolt reverse thread or normal thread? it would make sense for it to be reverse thread but i have tried going both ways to no avail any help would be greatly appreciated

You'll need an impact to get it loose and I don't remember if it was reverse or not. There is a keeper on there too. Make sure it is removed first.

Maybe I am thinking of my GSXR...but I thought that there was a keeper on there. Maybe it is after you remove the bolt. I can't remember. I remember that it was hard as to get it off though the first time from factory.

you might want to put the rear tire and chain back on. you're probably just spinning the shaft and not loosening the nut cause there is nothing to keep it from rotating

on my buddies gsxr... we soak the out of with WD40 and went to breaking it the impact and it didnt do it.... we ending up using a breaker bar + a long pipe for leverage and it did the job.

and it turned normal but that was a gsxr.

I'm pretty sure they are normal (right tighty, lefty loosey) and most countershaft sprockets have a keeper (if you are referring to a folding type washer over the nut) that needs to be unfolded. For future reference, keep the tire and chain on the bike, slip a 2x4 through the rear wheel on top of the swingarm, then with a breaker bar it should break loose. FWIW, it's gonna be tight and take quite a bit of torque to get it to break loose, especially since you aren't using an impact. It may also help if someone keeps the rear brake locked while doing this (although that is what the 2x4 is for). Hope this helps.

Getting it running at about 80mph on a rear pitbull then throw a wrench over the nut.... jk

bduck is right.... If you already have the wheel off you may have given yourself a few more problems by not allowing the transmission to be locked by using the chain/wheel/etc. Also, lift up, using our legs, while jerking if you don't have an impact. You can get a cheater tube(aluminum tube) and put it over the wrench for more leverage.
