My TL number two had the sprocket nut SUPER overtightened.
- 1/2" 70cm (2ft) breaker bar. no chance
- 3/4" 2m (6ft) breaker bar. Could turn bike upside down, but not get that nut loose.
- air impact wrench
- bigger air impact wrench
- heated nut and the full program again
No chance, couldn't get the sprocket loose with the chain on and the wheel blocked.
Solution was the following. Now don't laught, OK!! It was not me who put this sprocket nut on!
1) Removed swingarm and built a "locking tool" (haha ) to block the sprocket solid against the frame in the swingarm pivot:
2) Borrowed the biggest impact wrench I could find: 1200Nm electrical impact wrench used in tunnel construction:
(weights at least 5kg)
Tried for about 5min until it became loose.
Conclusion: Block the sprocket solid (it's probably trash after this) and use a really BIG impact wrench.
bought the 32mm socket,found a 5' bar,fit socket and the weight of the 5' bar with no pressure on the bar the nut became loose,i don't know how long it was loose for,but i'm glad i found it now not at 100 kph,replaced spocket i used locktite on shaft and nut,while tightning the wheel in gear that didn't work got one of the kids to push rear brake,tightened as much as i could,job done:banana
