I cannot find the size of socket needed to remove the front sprocket on my 07.

I saw the FAQ but it is for an 05. Is it the exact same size on an 07??

I'm pretty sure. I did mine yesterday. Took care of the lock washer and tried it to the right first myself with an impact gun. Didn't move (this is after penetrant). Tried to the left. Nothing. Handed the impact gun to my friend and he set it back to the left and held on to it way longer than I did--I also think I was on the back brake stronger than he was, and it came right off.

So wouldn't that be normal thread then? :dunno::confused:

Anyways, all I can say is that mine came off to the left for sure (and for the record a 245ft/lb impact wrench couldn't even get it off...ended up using a 3ft pipe on the end of a socket wrench).

My 07 was standard threads, and an electric craftsman impact gun got it off in literally like 2seconds.

Every bike will be different on how hard it will be to get off, but they are all standard threads.
