i know, it's a silly question. did i just forget? i'm replacing my chain/sprockets and i just can't get the countersprocket to budge. i didnt want to start applying insane amounts of pressure or put the torch to it to start heating it up just yet. my manual doesnt say anything about it being reverse threaded or anything in particular about removing it. do i just need to apply more pressure? i've still got the chain/sprockets on the bike, i was just trying to loosen the front countersprocket before removing the chain/rear wheel. i put a large screwdriver between the rear sprocket/swingarm. i'm almost embarrassed to post this.. but, figured better to ask before really doing some damage.. i was riding yesterday and felt my bike make a weird jump/skip coming out of a corner.. i thought it was about to pop out of gear or something. i got off the track and we saw this... looks like i somehow ripped off a few teeth of the rear..
