Rode it quickly down a rutted out trail across the bald assed prairies. Gotta get used to a big bike again.

No kidding! It just seems wrong to have a motor bouncing off the limiter, and all the while, fed with just enough oil to fill two juice boxes.

If the rest of your bike is apart, the sprocket can wait. The other option is an impact gun. That's what I use, and it comes right off. Hell sickle's is the most correct option.
