Default About to change out chain and sprockets

Hey I'm about to change out my change and both sprockets as they are worn. Do you guys have any suggestions to make it an easy swap? I do have a rear stand and impact wrench. Do I need anything else?

i was always told to replace sprockets and chain together, my buddy changed only the sprockets on his bike, and sure enough a few thousand miles later, his new sprockets were destroyed, missing teeth, and chewed all to hell. so i would say you would need a chain breaker tool, or a cutoff wheel on a die grinder as well. lol

I dont know if you have already attempted this job but you will need to have a chain tool to press the master links together. Most people just cut the old chain off with whatever thay have. I assume you have other proper tools like torque wrenches to remove and install the rear wheel. And a copy of the shop manual is always handy. Google search for a free PDF version.

Have fun getting that front nut off.. It's a bitch cos 95% of the time you need a massive breaker bar to hang off.. Oh if you remember the night before hit the nut with wd40 or Crc too
