Put a 2x4 or similar through the back wheel on top of swing-arm: this will lock wheel from rotating while you crack the nut. 
NEVER put the transmission in gear. 
When re-torquing the nut after refitting, put the 2 x 4 under the swing-arm instead of on top (since wheel will want to rotate opposite direction

I'm gonna change my rear sprocket and front sprocket and chain how can I make sure it's gonna be done proper


Hi Jake if you have the right tools it will be no trouble. Before you remove the rear wheel remove the front sprocket cover and loosen the nut or nuts holding the front sprocket. This will be safer than doing it with the r/wheel off. Next remove the wheel and keep note as to where the spacers go (don't mix them up!) remove the sprocket nuts and the sprocket. Again note which way the sprocket goes some have a thinner center so make sure the new one fits the same way. Refit the wheel leave it loose and loosen the adjusters allowing the wheel all the way forward. Then open the chain and join the new chain to the end of the old one with the link supplied then pull the old chain until the new one is fitted. Next join the new chain together. ( you may need to remove a link or two) it will depend on the length of the new chain. After this fit the new f/sprocket and tighten the nut then adjust the chain leaving 1.5inches of free play up and down. Make sure the adjusters sre even on the marks each side. And finaly After a day or two of use adjust again to around 1 inch up and down. Have fun. Regards Jim...

How to replace front sprocket


To replace the front sprocket follow the chain to the cover on the left side and remove it, loosen the chain tensioners on the rear axle, slide rear wheel all the way forward and remove chain. Then remove the bolt in the center of the front sprocket, change sprocket and reverse process for assembly. That is the process but if you are going to change the front sprocket you should change both sprockets and chain, as the chain stretches and will cause premature wear of the new sprockets. Complete sets can be found on Ebay for little money, maybe they are not the best but as long as you do not abuse them they will do until you get the money for a good set.

Slacken off chain, remove front sprocket cover (6mm hex keys), Remove centre bolt holding sprocket, and prise off sprocket, it's located on a keyway, fit new one in reverse order making sure the key is in place, replace cover and adjust chain. It is usual to change the rear sprocket and chain at the same time, they all wear together, if you just change one, it will wear quicker.

Procedure for chaincase removal front sprocket inspection 2002 1200s gfs


Remove the gearbox sprocket cover, this may mean undoing the gear lever, First put the bike in gear. This will lock the sprocket so you can undo the securing nut, you will also need to loosen the rear axle to allow the chain to be taken off the sprocket. Then remove the sprocket, refit is the same process in reverse. I would suggest you change the complete set (front & rear sprockets and the chain) that way you only have to take it to bits once. And it will also mean the chain lasts longer as the wear will be the same at both ends.

How do i remove the front sprocket on my 91 softail custom?


I assume you're talking about the front belt drive sprocket. First, disconnect the negative side of the battery. If you haven't already done so, you must drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Then you must take the engine compensator nut off and the nut that holds the primary chain adjuster. Remove the circlip and pull the clutch adjuster plate out of the center of the clutch. The mainshaft nut in the hole in the center of the clutch. The nut has LEFT-HANDED THREADS on it. Remove the engine compensator sprocket, primary chain, and clutch assembly all together. Then remove the small bolt that holds the jackshaft in and remove it and the coupling. Remove the starter. Then, take the bolts out and remove the inner primary cover. Now, you can see the front belt drive sprocket. You must take the large nut off the sprocket. It too has LEFT-HANDED THREADS. You need a special deep socket and a sprocket locking tool to get the sprocket off and retorque the nut when you put it back on. This is a major job requiring a fair amount of disassembly of the bike. If you're going to change the belt, the rear wheel and swingarm must come out as well. I would high recommend that you purchase a service manual to help with this project.

Good Luck

Want to replace drive sprocket on motor how do you get it off


Your sportster is actually pretty easy to change the front sprocket on. On the right side of the bike, you'll see the rear brake master cylinder. The master cylinder must come off as well as the plate that the master cylinder sits on. To get this off, you'll have ot remove the brake pedal and the exhaust system.

Once you get the plate off, you'll need some special tools to remove and replace the front sprocket. You'll need a special socket to remove the large nut holding the sprocket on and a special device made to hold the sprocket so you can get the nut off and then back on with the proper torque.

In addition to changing the front sprocket, you'll also have to change the final drive belt to match the size of the rear sprocket and front sprocket combination.

Good Luck

I have A 2000 zx600j and I took off the rear tire to change the sprocket. My mistake was doing the back before the front sprocket and I've already cut the chain. Now I'm having a heck of a time breaking...


You will need an impact gun to break it loose, how are you holding the sprocket still, any moving absorbs the torque you apply and stops the breaking loose of the sprocket.

Front sprocket oil leak


Get a new seal before taking the sprocket off. Remove the sprocket cover plate. You will see two small bolts holding a lock plate on the sprocket. Remove the bolts, lock plate and sprocket. Clean the sprocket shaft so the new seal is not damaged when installing. Now just pry out the old seal any way you can with a screwdriver and small hammer. Install the new seal flush with the casing.
