    Cant get at the bolts while its in the rim/cush drive so I can't get all that much leverage, any easy ways to do this I'm guessing there is a special tool as well.

    :hmmmmmSince you say it has a cush drive, I assume it is a 9?0 KTM... :shog


    You know the cush drive pulls out of the hub, right? Any socket/wrench fits.. Easy Peasy ! :dunno


    WHat am I missing here?

    Maybe a pic would help. The simple answer is that you remove the wheel, lift off the Cush drive, put that assembly in a vise, and wrench away.

    the sprocket just pulls right away from the wheel, if stubborn a tap with a rubber mallet will bring it loose. The cush drive just comes out too. Nothing holding either of them in. Put the old sprocket in a vice and take the nuts off(there is metal on the factory sprocket to keep the bolt from turning. If you have the same supersprocket i put on the the bolts go flush in the hole. Torque to 50 NM in a star pattern. Boom!:freaky

    ps put something around the new sprocket to keep it from getting marred up while installing the bolts! Gotta keep the bling!

    The locktite takes some serious effort to break. I screwed the sprocket to my work bench in 4 spots and the used my 2' torque wrench to break the locktite grip.
    worked for me.

    now I'm looking for a 15t front, any ideas who sells a dampened one?

    If you look in the background you can actually see a bench wise but wanted to show how to do it without a wise, anything you can place in between the teeth on the sprocket carrier to hold it in place works.

    Can be harder to find room for a torque wrench on a sprocket fixed to the hub directly since the spokes will be in the way.

    Glad to be able to help =)

    Loctite lets go with heat , A small LPG flame on the nut until too hot to touch will do the trick.
