Well, i tried removing the guard around the front sprocket and one of the screws was in so tight that it stripped. The other one came out like butter. My question is how do u change the sprocket. That chain is on there tight and i have no idea how to loosen it. I just dont know where to start. i got a new 15 tooth and want to install it. But i dont know how...thanx

I just kept the chain on mine and had the wife hold the rear brake pedal down and loosend the bolt real easy then used the same method totighten it.

what method do you use to hold the sprocket to loosen the nut holding the sprocket on?
parking brake (if you have one)
sitting on the quad and reaching down to run the wrench/ratchet is very effective
having the quad in gear and on the ground works as well

Ditto, but I don't have a parking brake so I had to use the wife.

She's good at putting on the brakes :D

I'd better claify... 54 ft-lbs is spec'd. When I change 'em in the sand, I don't torque 'em w/ a wrench - just by feel.
