Sprocket Hub Removal

Can you get the sprocket hub off without taking the axle off? If so how?
I am trying to get it off to drill it out for honda bolts and dont have a wrench big enough for the axle nuts so id like to get it off without removing the axle.
Thanks for any help.

I'm not sure if you can take that hub off from that side, but Rocky Mountain ATV has those 46mm G-Force wrenches. Two for $23.98. If you do take the axle out, it would be a good idea to check the grease in the bearings.

shouldnt be able to get that snap ring off until you back the axle nuts on the other side of the axle..

Why are you taking it off to drill it. Drilled all mine in place.If you can't get the drill straight,remove the wheel hub. Hell of alot easier.Good luck

Then you are going to have to buy a tool to get the job done then I don't think there is any other way to get it off. Unless you pull the hubs and leave it on and drill it.
