Default How much FT LB for busting my ass

So today I planned to change my sprockets and chain. Didn't have a impact gun and went over my neighbors cuz he has one. Come to find out we can't find it so time to bust out the breaker bar. Bike is in neutral, bar through the wheel, bent the crush washer flat, WD-40d the crap out of the nut, and time to change them sprockets. Was using an 18in breaker bar and the nut wouldn't budge for crap. So after 2 hours, I bitched to my neighbor and he told me to take the handle off his jack and use that. This "handle" had a hole in the bottom which allowed the 18in breaker bar to slide through and it was about 5 feet long. Put it on, tried to muscle it off still didn't work. Complained to my neighbor again that I didn't have good leverage. So he told me to use an extension and I did which allowed me to push down on the bar, rather than push forward. Put my whole weight on that b***ch, and what do you know, front sprocket gives up and I bust my ass. Bang my head on the mirror and fall backwards. Lmao, that nut got nothing on me...

But seriously, next time I'm buying a impact gun. Any not too expensive and not too shitty impact guns you guys can recommend?

lol, that nut is only rated at like 92ft/lbs on the 04. Were you just applying steady pressure or intermittent jerks?

I've got no impact gun, but I have a 36" breaker bar and a 5lb mini sledgehammer that has never left me needing another tool, at least until the bolt completely strips. Most of the time if the thread doesn't give with that pair, the bolt just shears off a few mm's down the line and I replace it.

Lol, oh trust me i was applying steady pressure. I was pushing that thing forward like a football player. It finally twisted after I put my whole body weight on the bar in the down position.

Oh, re-read your statement. I just bought the bike so maybe the previous owner torqued it on there way past 92ft/lbs.

I'm pretty sure they use a gorilla with a 10 foot bar to put those on at factory.

Lol well there's your problem, if you're applying a steady pressure and it isn't budging, just holding it there isn't going to do anything more, by pulsating/bouncing/hammering on the bar it applies a much larger amount of torque onto the nut so it usually gives after bouncing a few times or hammering a few times.
