Front sprocket

Sorry guys if this seems dumb been a long time since I have done chain and sprocket stuff. I am replacing my front sprocket do I have to break chain to do that or can I sneak it out? And just swap it??? Let me fill you in as well chain and sprockets are new just going down one tooth on the front. If I remember right you can't do it or at least on my dirt bikes. Thanks for the help.

if you're replacing the chain, then yes you're going to have to break the chain to get it out of the swingarm. as long as the new front sprocket is the same pitch, then there shouldn't be a problem. take out the rear axle blocks to be able to slide the rear wheel forward and give you some slack while swapping out the front sprocket. first, i recommend having someone hold the rear brake while you break free the nut on the front sprocket, just to make things easier.

Ok thanks I could not remember if you could get enough slack or not for some reason I thought there wasn't but that is good news.

Like gking182 said. Don't forget it should be torqued to the right spec and I highly recommend lock wiring the bold. As the HONDAS don't have a locking ring.

I've attached an example of my 08 CBR1000RR front sprocket bolt (lock wired).

if im reading this correctly your asking if replacing the front sprocket only, do you have to cut the chain/ master link? if this is your question then the answer is no, you dont if changing the sprocket.

Its nice that you went through the effort to safety it, why not make it a positive safety instead of that neutral one you got there? Not that it would matter much, just if you want to be a bit more anal about your bike. Did you use .032 or .020 wire?

Ill probably install some on my bike when ever i replace that sprocket as well.

You thinking blue would do a good job? I don't see why I would have to wire the bolt as long as its torqued to spec? The stock bolt isn't wired...
