Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide
The compensating sprocket nut is indeed right hand threads. It is torqued to 150-165 foot pounds of torque and usually has Locktite 271 (red) in it. A lot of mechanics go overboard with the Loctite. I've seen the entire inside of the nut "painted" with this stuff. The book calls for "two lines" of the stuff when putting the nut back on.
The easiest way to get the nut off is with a GOOD air wrench. I bought one of those Ingersol-Rand Titanium air wrenches. I've seen nuts on so tight that I've had to use a 3/4" air wrench to get them off. If you don't want to purchase an air wrench, load the bike on a trailer and take it to a tire store. Ask them to take the nut off for you. Usually they'll do it free but they may charge you a couple of dollars. It is worth a couple of dollars to get the nut off.
When putting the bike back together, the compensator sprocket torques to 150-165 ft lbs. of torque with two lines of 271 Loctite in it. The clutch hub nut torques 60-80 ft. lbs. left handed with one line of 271 Locktite. Make sure your torque wrench will torque in the left handed direction. Not all wrenches will.
