  • Changing TLR Front Sprocket

    For those of you who have changed your own front sprocket...what socket size will I need to fit the nut on the front sprocket? I know that it will be big, but just want to be sure I have the right size for the job before I start. What is the way it is held on (ie...tab, nylon insert)? Anyone know the torque offhand?

    I will be doing it this weekend...any tips on this job?

    Thanks for your comments!
    Be good, and if you can't be good...be really, REALLY bad!!

          If you have access to an air gun it will make life easier. If not make sure the bike is in gear and have someone hold the rear brake....and put your ass into it!!!!!!

            I don't remember the torque for that nut being very much... I think it was 82 ft-lbs. I can't remember where I got that info though. I put mine on at about 90 ft-lbs I think.

            That sprocket is on a spline... so the nut does not directely bear the torque load off of the motor and therefore should not require a large torque. You just need to keep it from rattling free. Use locktite.

              locktite is your friend.

                Leave your old chain on and stick a Metal pipe or anything that will lock through the back wheel and swingarm. Turn Counter clockwise like a Mother %$#@!ER and it will crack it. I would advise you take your left lower off when doing this. Its a bitch but just muscle it off.

                  I suggest using wood or wraping either in a towel to prevent damage tot he wheel or swing arm. This methode or someone using the brake. Putting it in gear may be bad for the tranny, some say no but just the possibility is enough to keep me from doing it.

                    use a tie wrap to hold down the front brake. that way the bike will not have a tendency to want to move forward.

                        or at least a breaker bar. That is a must. You won't be able to crack it otherwise I garantee it.

                          yeah, you can use a breaker bar... but you know you want an IMPACT WRENCH! It makes life a whole lot easier (not to mention you will be the envy of all youre friends )

                            Impact. ONly way to go..

                            Other than that. AutoZone has the breaker bar from hell for about 15$ (about 2 1/2 ft long) Tried to find a pic but can't..

                            Why not just leave the bike on the ground.. I've never turned the rear wheel with it on the ground. Worst case put somebody heavy on the back seat, then hit it. No worries about breaking anything that way..
                            I've got a huge penis, You've got a huge penis, even Tim over there, yup you guessed it, huge penis. Good, now that that's out of the way, let's go ride
