As most of y'all know, I am having to change my front sprocket to match my rear pitch (525) BUT, all of the videos I find on youtube ONLY show how to remove the sprocket with a chain...HOW THE FUUUCK asm I supposed to take this damn thing off without a chain on it? Obviously, I can't put the bike in gear to remove it, or it fucks up the tranny...I'm a a TOTAL loss here...ANY SUGGESTIONS? Thanks!

Impact son.
That was my first thought...then my immediate thought after that, "fuck, I don't have an air compressor, impact wrench, OR a way to transport the bike to someone that does."

Now that I am thinking about it, an impact WILL work, even though I don't have a chain on it, right?

How is an impact gun easier on the innards than a breaker bar?

In the end it will be the same torque applied to break the fastener loose. Wouldn't a slow, steady pull on a wrench be more "gentle" than rapid fire hits from an impact ?

Not arguing either side, just asking.
Kinda makes sense....

Btw, did the "Secret Santa" shirt fit, ShinyRibs? I didn't know what size to get you...lol.

You mean 5th gear?

Yes 5th theres less strain on the gearbox that way

Another option is to put s small piece thin of wood in front of the sprocket to protect the crankcase & then wrap an old piece of chain around the sprocket until it jams this will hold if the sprocket is not super tight

That's why I always keep an old shitty chain around. I just loop it around and shove a screwdriver down through it to tie it together.
