    its a bunk unsealed set so you have to take the spindle right out, there should be a cone nut or something resting up against the sprocket you just unthread it and slide the sprocket off the non drive side.

    Yeah I thought it was that simple too, but the factory put that cone washer on so freaking tight it was ridiculous. I eventually got it though.

    The people in the mechanics forum don't see a lot of BMXs, and for some reason BMX parts are never compatible with anything else
