I don't know that it matters but if you are using the brake, by way of the chain, to hold the gear and shaft while you torque on the nut then the motor doesn't need to be in gear.
Only thing I can think of is that with bike in gear you were trying to turn motor, by way of the clutch, as you torqued on the nut.
But this happens every time you let off the throttle (engine braking) so I don't see how that could do any harm. But maybe it somehow made the clutch bind up.
Put it in neutral and fire it up to oil up the clutch. Then kill it and try to roll it in first w/ clutch again and see what happens...
I have read other posts where guys had hell getting the countershaft nut off. You may need an air impact wrench to remove it (that's what I always use anyway).
I wouldn't worry about it, but I hope everything works out.

I started the engine and done what you said and after the engine was warm I put it in gear and every thing was o.k.
So I don't know what went wrong but it is fine now. Thanks for your support.
