1)Remove speed sensor bolt and speed sensor. 2)Remove sprocket cover bolts and sprocket cover. 3) Remove the sprocket nut and washer(you must strighten the bent portion of the washer before attempting to loosen the nut) When loosening the nut, you must apply the rear wheel brake. 4) Raise the rear on to a stand and loosen the chain. 5)Remove chain from front sprocket. 6) Remove sprocket from shaft.
to install just reverse the procedure. Apply oil to the shaft threads and contact surface of the sprocket. Ensure the correct face of the sprocket is facing the tranny. Remember to bend the tab on the washer after you torque the sprocket nut.
Sprocket torque is 94 Ft/lbs. Torque on the sprocket cover bolts is 104 in/lbs. the torque for the speed sensor bolt is 61 in/lbs. Manual recommends using non permanent locking agent on the threads of the speed sensor bolt. It is better to have a buddy give you a hand if possible. Have fun!

Are there any special instructions in the shop manual about doing this? IM going down to a 14t, IM sure the stock 525 chain will still be fine. IM looking for the factory tourqe specs too.

Any input is appreciated.

After you change either sprocket, you should adjust the chain slack. The chain will not slap with the proper slack.

yeah the front is easier to install.
(1 tooth down in front = 3 ;)teeth up in rear)

yes i did have to adjust the chain, but i already had to loosen it & slind the rear wheel forward to get the front sprocket off. the entire job took me 1/2 hr.

biggest performance mod for the $.

jerky808,

That is not quite right, and I have explained why in this thread, which you started.

One down in front is equivalent to nearly 3 up in back.

I just can't get that stupid washer to bend! I think tomorrow I'll just use a plasma cutter and get that SOB off.

I found it much easier to change the rear then the front. As long as you have the correct socket and maybe an impact wrench. Anyways it all depends on gear ratios to begin with in regards to -x on front = +y on the back. Yamaha's, Suzuki's all different ratios so it maybe 1/3 or 1/2, or 1/4?

Impact wrench made it coming off super easy. I thought it was going to be hard since I didn't have the rear on to hold it in place. Nope, came off about .5 seconds after I hit the trigger.

Same thing here. Just put it in gear and use an impact and that baby just zips right off. I used a 1 1/16 socket because i didnt have a metric that big and it worked just fine and didnt round off the nut.

YES IT'S FAST...NO YOU CAN'T RIDE IT.

I managed to keep it in neutral. =)

When I first got my socket set I was wondering what I could need a 24mm socket for? Now I know. Now I'm wondering what do I need a 2" one for.
