If you have the nut off and it still wont slide on the shaft. You may need to hit it with a hammer to break it loose. Years of lub and other crud can crud the splines just like a rusty bolt.

I know its necessary but I HATE when I have to take the ol "harley wrench" (hammer) to my bike.

I got mine off the SV with out a impact wrench. it was hard as hell to get off, but a big breaker bar, and something to stop the engine from turning is all you need....oh and if you have a big fender washer folded over the nut, you need to bend that out.

They usually do but, sometimes they can be a PITA. I had a h3ll of a time getting my front off the Monster with 20k of crud on it.
