it's fairly easy to do. Stands make the job 100% easier. Just take off the rear wheel, then lossin the 8 bolts or how ever many are holding your sprocket on.
Next for the front you will need one big socket to get the big nut holding the sproket off, but other than that it's pretty easy. I just cut my old chain off with big chain cutters.
Make sure you align your rear wheel correctly or you will eat up your new sprocket.

I will let Gas Man go into more detail with this....

Yep..the same threads I just linked in the other thread...TNX SV!

Basic tools is needed and a set of stands...at least a rear.

But you will need a chain break/rivit tool and a dremel to cut the new chain and old one off!

Here's the chain press to put the new one on... HERE!

Chain alignment tool

And you can either do a chain break to remove the old one and cut the new one to length or a dremel like I did!

Well "by the book" the nuts holding the sprockets on should be "torque to specs". On the rear just put em on the german way... "nice en tiught"! Not too much cause you don't want to mess up the cush drive.

The front sprocket... you are going to need a impact gun to remove and to put on! It will come off hard and should be put back on in the same!!

Good. I'm looking at changing mine out and there's no way I'm paying 100+ when I can do it myself for $3/hour at the auto hobby shop on base which has all the tools I'll need.

They do loan tools. but I don't know about an impact wrench. That might be too high value to loan. I guess it all depends on what info you give them at the time of the loan.

They would probable rent the tools needed. You pay almost full price for the rental and when and if you take them back undamaged. You get your money back. Almost like buying them, using them then returning for refund. Except you don't have to worried about them refusing refund because they can tell its was used.

It a place where anyone w/ a military ID (active/retired/dependant etc..) can go to work on their vehicles. There plenty of lifts and spare tool boxes to use/sign out. All Snap-On tools here at Nellis too! They charge 3 bucks/hour per bay here at Nellis and the price varies depending on what base you're at and for which Major Command (MAJCOM). They also have full time guys that work there and will help you out if you need it. i do oil changes in my garage, but for anything else I'll go there. I put my rear SS line and new pegs on there a few weeks back or so.
