Changing sprockets and chain...NEED HELP!!

I'm looking into getting a sprocket/chain set for my 05' ZX6R, i want a bit more bottom end power to pull some wheelies in 2nd and i was just wandering what you guys would recommend for me. I've been looking around i'm just not exactly sure what i can expect performance wise, and will it hurt my top end a lot?

wow....i cannot get the front sprocket nut loose! How much torque are these things put on here with, a guy i know said usually 60 but i know were puttin over 200 to try and get it off. Anybody else have this problem? also is it reverse thread or not?

They aren't generally put on with a huge amount of torque, but they do often have a locking agent which combined with a bit of corrosion etc can lead to them being a bit hard to break loose:) I always worry about using a long bar and the back brake as that puts a huge amount of torque on the brake. I've seen (only once though) a caliper ripped off its mounts that way before.

If you use an air gun (which I recommend) be sure the transmission is in neutral.

have fun
