Sounds unusual,i havent come across a gsx600f yet,but i do know that some models of earlier bikes,(not necessarily suzuki)use a left hand thread on the sprocket nut,so instead of trying to loosen the nut to the left(as one normally would) try going to the right (as if to tighten it),and if it is as i suspect ,it should come undone...hope this helps

I have to replace the front and rear spoket, on a 1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750.I need the torque spec for the frount and the rear.

Just make sure the bolts are tight on the rear wheel if you still have stock nuts they should be a style of locking nuts. The counter shaft sprocket if you have an 3/8 impact thats perfect. It should also have a nut washer on it. tight is right my friend, you dont really need to worry about torque specs unless you have a gasket involved.
Hope this helps

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.

I own a 2002 Triumph Bonneville. I have just purchased a new chain and both front and rear sprockets. I had intended to change all three. However despite several attempts I could not release the drive...

97 foot pounds plus age make this a tough one to break loose. put it in first gear and have someone stand on the brake. a 1/2 inch air impact should help too.

Im replacing the front and rear sprockets on my 1991 suzuki gsx600 katana. I'm sure either the front probably the rear as well will need to be torqued, I'm just curious how mny pounds i need to torque it...

Well, the oldest manual I have handy is for a '94, it specs:

Front sprocket nut 84 ft lbs
rear sprocket nuts 43.5 ft lbs
axle nut 72.7 ft lbs

Older manuals spec 67.5 for rear sprocket nut, this was changed to 43.5 due to the large number of problems with stripping nuts/bolts.

I have a suzuki katana 600 1998 and the problem is the chain wobble left and right? the other problem the chain gets tight and loose when it is in neutral and its being roled down?

hi,sounds to me like you have a bent sprocket or worse a bent counter shaft,check the rear sprocket first,get the rear wheel off the ground(centrestand will do),find a block or something,place it beside the rear sprocket,using the block as a rest ,hold a ruler about a 1/4 inch off the sprocket and check the runout by simply spinning the back wheel,the gap between the ruler should not change by more than about 1/2mm to 1mm around the entire sprocket,if it does then it needs to be replaced,if the sprocket is running true,remove the engine cover over the front sprocket and repeat as per the rear sprocket,also look for any up/down forwards/backwards movement in the countershaft,i hope it is the rear one that is the problem as it will be relatively easy to fix,if it is the front(doubtfull)and the countershaft is bent then it will be quite expensive to repair...note a countersahft can be bent by overtightening the drive chain,when the suspension moves rather than the chain taking up the movement(which it is supposed to do)then the chain will pull against the counter shaft and bend it,or the bearing will fail (more common) or crack the crankcase..hope this helps...cheers

I got new sporkets and wanna put them on the cahins off but i cant put any power to the front spindel cause it moves what do i do ?

are you trying to replace the sprockets? you can't get the nut off because it spins? just put the bike in gear and remove the front gear first, leave the chain on until after the nut is loose. also "make sure you flatten out the nut lock first".
