Front Sprocket Removal?

Recommended Posts

Im replacing everything out with all Renthal. I still need to go out tomorrow to get some Allen Bit Sockets, so I can torque up the rear sprocket. Ok, now this may sound stupid, but how in the world do you get the front sprocket off.

Lol, just loosen up the rear axle and chain tensioners so you get some slack in the chain then just... take it off. Its real easy, puting it back on is a little tricky because you have to align the grooves and such...

hope that helps, im not very good at explaining stuff :banghead:

to get it off, but it in gear, and use a t-handle. It worked for me and should work for you.

The easiest way to do it is to crack it loose while the chain is still on the bike. Take the bike off the stand, put it in gear, and have your fattest friend sit on it and lock the rear brake. It will be easy to loosen then.

Be aware - when you put your new front sprocket on don't torque the nut to spec or you might sheer off the bolt like my friend did on his X :banghead: He was lucky it was an easy fix at the honda shop.

Thats how I do it. But I hold the brake with my foot while leaning over the seat and loosen it that way.

I would just wait till i got the chain back on then stand on the right side of the bike and put your foot on the rear brake, reach over with a pull handle or somethin and loosen it.

Maybe too old, first dual sport, CRF250l. Changed to 13 tooth today. Had hell of a time with keeper. Question. Does the keeper hold the sprocket away from the case a little. If I have it bolted in does it not have to be in correct position? Went for short ride, speedo is off of course and nothing flew off. The u-tube videos are not clear on positioning the keeper.
