Does anyone knopw what size socket I need to take my front sprocket off. Its an '85 750. Also, how hard is this to do without an impact gun?

thanks

I believe it is a 14mm. It's not very big, but has a lot of torque on it. Put the bike in gear, preferably 6th, then have someone stand(!) on the rear brake pedal. Then useing a large breaker bar, or a torque wrench with an extension, slowly rotate the bolt counter-clockwise. Be careful of whacking bodywork, yours and the bikes!


I could be wrong, it might be either a 17 or a 19mm, but I believe it's a 14.

Good luck!

you're kidding, right? 14mm is about the diameter of your index finger.


(unless you're referring to the safety bolt that threads into the countershaft)

the large nut that holds the countershaft sprocket on is a 32mm nut.


you can get it off without an impact, but you'll need big leverage (a very long wrench), and you'll need to have somebody hold the rear brake down....

try to use an impact if you can.....makes putting the nut back on properly much easier too...
