Question What size is the front sprocket nut?

Started replacing my chain and sprockets last night and got stuck on the front sprocket nut. I didn't have a socket big enough, so I tried, and failed, with a crescent wrench. Couldn't find the nut size in the manual. Anyone know what size socket I need to go pick up? Oh, and if it's reverse-threaded, that would be helpful to know, too

Welcome to the club. Gad same issue. Its a 27. Best bet... Invest in a semi descent electric impact wrench and get urself a 27mm 6 sided impact socket. 27mm is also same size as nut on rear fork for adjustin

Ah, good to know I can use it in multiple places. Did you have trouble finding a metric socket that big?

Groovy. Thanks for the tips.

UPDATE: I found the socket alone for $1.49 @ a local Harbor Freight. I'm hoping that with a nice long breaker bar will be all I need. A whole set and impact wrench will have to wait for now

I'd seriously try and trailer it to a tire shop and throw someone $5 to use their impact on it.

If you strip that thing, you're going to want to kick yourself in the balls. Don't take these guys lightly, that thing is a BITCH to get off.

Grab a torque wrench at harbor freight while youre at it.

I did it with a socket and a 1/2 driver. Stand on the right side and put one foot on the rear brake, lean over the bike, grab the breaker bar and put some stank on it. make sure when it loosens you don't fall over!
