This is the business end.
As you can see I have a bracket hanging from my hugger. It was for a chain lube device but then I discovered the joy of chain wax & not having to clean oil off the wheel after every ride.
I have removed the bracket to allow the hugger to move which makes it easier to remove the sprocket.
I've removed the rear brake torque rod pinch bolt for reasons we shall see later.
I have removed the axle nut & the sprocket carrier.
If I wasn't going to change the sprocket I could have just left it on the carrier & removed them together.
