So I tried doing a sprocket and chain swap today with no luck. I couldn't get the front sprocket off. I had a friend pressing on the rear brake with the bike in neutral using a breaker bar to try and loosen the bolt with no luck. I made sure the washer was flush and not still flapped over the bolt and I doused the bolt with PB blaster and still no luck. I'm starting to worry the bolt is rusted on. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks ahead.

+1 to the harbor freight tool. Was on sale for $39 when I bought it. I actually broke an extension off inside a socket with a breaker bar when trying to get my front off. Went and got the impact wrench and it came off in 5 seconds.

Ended up going to harbor freight and getting the Impact Wrench and it worked with a little bit of heat. Unfortunately now I'm having an issue with my rear caliper pads sticking even when the pistons are depressed. Anyone have a good servicing method?

In the end, using the right tool is always worth it....

side note, what size is the nut for the front sproket?
