Just wondering what size the nut is on the front sprocket. It is bigger than a 32mm because that is what came with the bike tool kit and is too small. I am thinking a 34 or 35mm, but just want to make sure. Thanks in advance.

36mm, I just changed my countershaft sprocket today to a 16 t
Hey Superstar, how do you like it. I will finish doing my tommorrow, because I don't have a 36mm and have to wait until tommorrow to pick one up. But how do you like it. Good, Bad?? It is a freaken hassle to get that dang cover off. I had to take off my rear set, so I could get that damn shifter rod out of the way, for that one stupid allan screw..

The whole process took me about 15 minutes. There is no need for a socket if you don't have it. The nut was not tight at all (should have been though), and all I did was put her in first gear. You can use a crecent wrench if you have one big enough.

Yeah, the big pain was having to take off the footpeg bracket and shift assembly.

I have not rode it yet, tomorrow for sure. I know it will help with the starting/riding the clutch.

P.S. My '02 R1 required the use of a heavy duty impact gun.:eek:

Right on. I will definatly be taking mine out tommorrow also. I probally still want to get a socket, so when I put it back together I can put it on tighter.
