Perhaps the question I asked was a little vague[:I]. Upon removing the cover and speedo wire there appears to be a odd shaped nut holding the sprocket on the output shaft with a locking collar. I can only assume the locking collar can be bent flat and the nut removed with an impact gun?

Yes, your assumption is right. 2 more things.

1. A heavy duty impact wrench, Not the $20 one.
2. Have a second person hold the rear brake, or like I do, have him wedge a 2x4 under the rear tire to keep it from turning. Don't do this against the tranny.

Edit: On re-assembly, lightly oil threads and torque nut to 92 ft/lbs before bending tab back up.

I would try to do this by hand before investing any money on an impact wrench... On the two bikes I did the front sprocket on, one wouldnt budge, but came off in a second with the impact wrench.. The other bike it came right off only using the brake to keep it from moving... I used a standard socket, might have been 1 1/16th or so... i dont remember exactly, but its close but not exactly 1"....
