Look at the normal rotation of the sprocket. If it is the drive sprocket and it turns clockwise then it left hand threaded; counter clockwise right hand threaded.

Which way do you turn to loosen the front sprocket on a yzf 450

Put the bike in 4th or 5th gear, and place a board across the swing arm, through the spokes, so it lays across both sides of the arm as near the rim as possible. Then crank the sprocket off. It's a right hand thread, so turn it counter-clockwise to loosen.

Having problems undoing front sprocket ! Would it be left-hand thread Also cant get socket on very far do i need a special socket as its got two different sizes 27mm on first part of nut and 32mm on rear...

There should be a bent washer over the nut to stop it from turning. Have a good look.
Flatten the bent washer with a flat cold chisel, gently, as you need it again! Put the bike in top gear to hold the sprocket and use a spanner 27mm to undo the nut. It is a clockwise thread.
When you put a sprocket back on, don't forget the bent washer and a drop of Loctite Threadlock will help to hold it on.

Cant remove front sprocket also is it a reverse thread

hi, dont know what bike you are working on, however all modern suzuki use a normal rh thread for tightening. put the bike in gear press down on the rear brake and undo in the normal direction anti clockwise, check there are no locking tabs bent over the outside of the sprocket,

Cant undo nut

No they are not left hand thead,normal r/h thread.
make sure chain is still on bike and front sproket and then try good rattle gun. if this does not work,put bike in gear and hold on rear brake and use long breaker bar, if still no good will need to heat front sproket nut with oxy set very carefully and rattle off with rattle gun while nut is hot

The bolts that holds the timing belt sprockets on do they turn to come off clockwise or counter clockwise?. Trying to change camshaft. This is for a 1980 Honda GL Goldwing.

hi,if it is anything like a 1200,they are normal left to undo and right to tighten,they will probably be very tight as honda locktite them in,they also have a woodruff key in them to locate the sprocket onto the camshaft,dont lose the key,they are a honda specific part and altough they are small they are quite expensive...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".
