so the first time I had to do this was when I bought the Extreme Creations "hyper drive" which is 38t rear sprocket and requires their hub to use that sprocket, this was when I ran the LSR. And I change the rear sprocket (still using the OEM hub) frequently going back-n-forth from the track to canyon riding. I have a Baxley front wheel chalk (internet pic below) which I roll the bike into and then remove the hub, flip it over on a towel and then use an impact gun to remove the 5 nuts, and do the sprocket swap. If you don't have a wheel chalk then just leaving the bike on the side stand like Bob does is fine, but I prefer the bike to be upright. Keep in mind that I break the chain & swap front & rear sprockets every time I go from street to track, most owners wouldn't have this need.

ok I guess I can see that now, as long as you are rotating the hub & sprocket so you can get at those 5 nuts one at a time.
I never would have come at it that way, but interesting.
The one problem with this method is you have to have the wheel off the bike and you have to have the rear up on a stand.
The rear stand I use would not allow for that. A center stand would.
Removing the hub is still the best method for my setup.
thnx for the reply.

so you're working from this side to remove the hub & sprocket from the other side of the swing arm?

h2madness! To get to the sprocket nuts.And the axle bolts.Just easier for me anyway.But I do have a nicely angled socket wrench I use to do it either way.It can be done on the sidestand as well.Think I did it that way once.

racer172 I don't get why you guys remove the rear wheel for a rear sprocket change.
One has nothing to do with the other.
but whatever works for ya..

h2madness! "A: The bike would need to be lifted up off the ground with front and rear race stands, then the Jack Stands are slid into place. Once the bike is on the jack stands the front and rear stands can be removed".Too much extra work for me lol.I don't really need to raise the rear with the swingarm stand.I can fit the center pivot stand with it on it's sidestand.Either way.

h2madness! That's a first for me...never seen those before.Looks kinda 'iffy'.How the heck do ya get the bike up on both sides to lift it?Don't think I'd want those...I just put her on the rear stand,install the pivot stand,then remove the rear stand.

Do you actually HAVE those stands?Looks like it cradles the footpegs.Right?If so,How's it gonna cradle a footpeg that folds up and back?I could see it working with solid rearsets.Kinda.Still would need to raise the rear up with em...don't see how that's possible one at a time.
