If you put it in 1st and the bolts won't come out easily, they are never coming out.

Aw jeez, that means unless you want to weld on the new sprocket it's split-the-cases countershaft time...

If you were close I'd give you whatever help I could (I think I asked where you were, and it wasn't that close...)

We seem to see this at least once a year,somebody strips the teeth on the countershaft then welds on a sprocket and sells the bike to some poor bugger that doesn`t realize the previous owner was an a$$.........sucks man,big time.......

Do you know the original owner,or at least where he lives:bonk:

@Dave - haha

Can you post a picture of the weld? It makes for a good what NOT to do anyway. Perhaps it's save-able with some precision grinding?
