Pull the front case cover off that is over the sproket, then you will remove the large bolt that retains the sprocket to the output shaft of the trans, this will require a 1/2" drive air impact gun (like tire shops use to remove wheel lugs), u will also need a good quaility gear puller to get the gear off as it is a press fit.

How can I replace a sprocket


If you are replacing a sprocket, you should replace both sprockets, and the chain. These work as a system and tend to wear together. That said the rear sprocket is easier to replace as it just unbolts from the rear wheel once you have the rear wheel removed.

The front sprocket will likely require impact tools, and is accessible under a cover. If you feel you need to take the chain off, there is a C-clip holding the master link in place. Locate and remove the C-clip and master link to remove the chain.

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.

How to replace front sprocketKawasaki How To Install


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.

Trying to figure out out how and what will be changed by going from a 15T to a 14T on the front sproket while keeping the original size on the rear. It's on a 2006 Katana GSX 600F


Hello, you will have quicker take off (bottom end) and lose top end speed, you will have the same effect if you increase the teeth on the back sprocket, if you want more top end speed do the opposite. You are changing your front sprocket from 15 teeth to 14 teeth which is going to turn the sprocket on the front quicker causing the rear wheel to go quicker, but because your engine is going to get to its maximum output quicker meaning you will lose a little on your top speed. Keep in mind if it is only your front sprocket being replaced (reduced in T) you may need to shorten your chain, it is recommended you replace front and rear sprockets along with your chain for maximum life on all 3 parts.

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
Steve

Chain


Yes. It’s likely that the sprockets are worn. Putting a new chain non a worn pair of sprockets will make the chain wear out faster—and replacing the sprockets without replacing the chain will sear out the sprockets. Do them as a set.
