While riding a few weeks ago my rear sprocket came loose and ripped to shreds taking my hub, chain, and both sprockets with it. I was lucky that the case did not get damaged when the chain went flying, but it did lock up my transmission immediately. Hopefully the motor is G2G.

Anyways, I am replacing my rear wheel and drive components but reached a stopping point with my front sprocket. The manual doesn't reference it at all, to include the required torque of the bolt. Anyone have any specific tips are tricks to remove it, or things I should be aware of? If not I am just going to use a breaker bar and have my wife hold the rear brake to loosen the bolt. In addition, does anyone know the torque of that bolt?

Thanks all,

It's the stock sprocket, should I apply hear prior to removal?

Careful with the heat.

No heat needed with an impact and I've used a clutch holding tool to hold the sprocket

If its a serviceable part you want blue loctite. Red requires heat to break it loose. If it spins at all you definitely want blue at least. Hell i put blue on my plastic bolts to keep the suckers from vibrating out all the time

Blue is good stuff, I agree. I've only had it fail once. Upper motor mount on a 2013 KTM 250 smoker.
