im taking my front sprocket off. the nut that is holding it on is pretty dang tight. before I put a lot of pressure on it I wanna be sure im turning it the right way. these are not reverse or backwards threads are they?

Standard right hand threads. Make sure the lock ring is curled back and you'll have to use a strong impact...I tried a breaker bar w/3 foot extension the first time and that still didn't work. Impact's the only way to go.

I just have one of those cordless impact drivers from Northern Tool. Once I flattened out the locking ring, it spun off easily.

Good impact with a GOOD compressor.

i havent tried heating it. do I need to?
I'd definitely try to avoid using head. There is a sensor right below it which could melt and you could mess up the seal around the output shaft. Get yourself a good impact wrench. If you can't buy one see if you can borrow a buddies. It'll come right off.

I had to use a 3/4 impact to get mine off, it laughed at my IR 1/2" gun!

Hey guys, stupid question… I have the spacer flattened out & the chain is off. Should I be in neutral or in gear? I don’t want to damage the gearing… however, there’s no resistance when in neutral and the sprocket just spins. PLEASE HELP!
