Breaker bar and 4' cheater did the job though.

I know. I swear a Sumo wrestler was working in the factory that day.
Stock front. Rear is +2. Did this install on a bike I'm selling soon.

There is a seal on the counter shaft that keeps oil on the inside of the motor. By heating the sprocket and therefore the shaft you can damage the seal and have an oil leak.

You also described really wrenching hard to flare the pins on your master link. That can be overdone too. If you make the flares too tight, it can bind the link and cause premature chain wear. Keep an eye on that link, if it looks out of line with the others or changes color you could have issues with it.
You should be able to grab that link and move it slightly. It should have little or no more resistance than any other link.

he was refering to the countershaft seal, it keeps oil in.... with heat it messes it up. you will know soon if you messed it up. next time hollar and you can use my big impact n compressor if needed., heat is absolutly last resort.

Well, applied carefully it can help. On the other hand using too much impact wrench can damage the gears in the transmission.
Countershaft sprockets have been a pain since the day they were invented, gotta be careful and patient at the same time you apply brute force and ignorance.


Tricky....
