So I have one question I tried to take off the main drive not the one where the basket is but the other one the main one how the heck do I take that off? is it reverse threaded? help me!!!!!!!!!

well, you got farther than I did. I couldn't get it to stay running beyond a block. Idle was good, new plug, ran it up to 3rd, and upon deceleration, it fouled.

The primary gear should have threadlock on it and would be torqued to 70nm, so it might be tough to get off, but it is NOT reverse threaded. Turn counterclockwise to loosen.

Today I am taking it to suzuki to have them take off the stupid gear! plus have them just change out the seal and all I am done with this bike I need a break! I busted the basket and just feel I am fully frustrated! I am done! I am going to just give it to the shop have them take all that I have done and put it all back together! Instead of bringing them the bike I am just dropping the engine off! and a S% load box full of parts! lol ha ha ah If it fouls a plug after that I am done! DONE I will trade the stupid bike in! I will keep you posted. lots of luck to you!
