I know it's probably been answered many times before, but you do you remove the front sprocket?

I've heard an impact wrench is the only way. The manual says to use a clutch tool to make the sprocket stationary, well I asked at the dealership I work at and they couldn't find the tool.

Any secrets you guys care to share with me? It's supposed to be 80 degrees tomorrow, and I have fresh rennsports I need to break in

get an impact wrench. put socket on end of impact wrench and hit and turn. You might as well buy an impact wrench if youre gonna have a bike b/c you will wind up using it again anyway... Or maybe your autozone may have one you can rent out.

Keep it in neutral (so you don't turn the gearbox and engine), wrap a 2x4 in an old towel and stick it through the rear wheel ao it locks to the swingarm and then use the socket wrench with a 2' (or so) piece of water pipe as an extension - anything is possible if you have enough leverage and you won't have to hammer the shit out of the sprocket axle and gearbox like you would with an impact wrench

Yup
If the chain is still on of course. Thats how I've done it.

If at first you try the above technique and fail, more LEVERAGE.

To paraphrase - with the correct fulcrum and a long enough lever I could move the earth.
Remember that mechanical advantage is your friend.

A lot of heat on that sucker will help out, put a torch to it. It will melt off the lock tight thats probably holding it on.
