More front sprocket experiences...I am doing my first sprocket and chain change at 20K and I expected it to go smoothly since I have an impact wrench. 2 hours and no luck. Then 2 things I did: bought a real 27mm 6-pt impact socket instead of using my 12-pt chrome vanadium, and I also used some penetrating oil on the countershaft and let it soak for the day. Came home from work and it spun right off no problem. Yeah! Now just need to buy a new nut after rounding off the old one from the bad decision to use a 12-pt. Don't do that
