Slick Shift by DNP cassette removal tool question

Greetings All,

I got a used set of wheels for $20.00 and I wanted to remove the Slick Shift by DNP cassette. My research led me to believe that I needed the Park Tool FR-5.2 and a Chain Whip tool.
This was too small. Are there any suggestions for removal of this cassette?

Thank You!

Shouldn't need a chain whip just to remove a freewheel from a hub. Nor even to put it back on.

Looks like the Shimano FW removal tool might work. Or some version of the splined tool. Various brands have similar splined tools that aren't quite the same.

Likely if you just take the wheel to a local bike shop, they'll loosen it for you and you won't have to spend so much on tools you might only use a few times.

Did you remove the axle to use the tool on the freewheel? I've seen a pic of what looks like yours and the removal notches look like they can only be accessed by at least removing the axle nut and possibly the axle too. Not certain though but give it a shot.

Page 11 of the product catalog on their website shows some removal tools. Which you specifically need I don't know.

Still, I'd go to a shop first unless you feel you will be removing this freewheel often.

It might be possible that it is a freehub with a cassette. But their current cassettes all use lock rings. Perhaps a older model no longer made had a threaded small cog.

The reason that I thought it was a cassette was from the PO said that it was (and he is a bicycle mechanic).
Plus doing some research the video explained the difference also leads me to think that it is a cassette as the inner ring moves with the gears :

Determining Cassette / Freewheel Type | Park Tool

I will try the local shop today and see if they can clarify.
I would rather buy the tool than pay the $9.00 to the shop to remove the gears - then I simply have it for future use if needed.

Thank you All!

If you have a good rapport with your local shops they might just charge you an hour or so of decent conversation. Though if your shops are busy and the mechanics not the people running or owning the shop, then maybe not.

I don't know what kind of 'research' you've done but that's a freewheel. Everything I saw in the search I did said 'DNP freewheel...'.

Yep it is and thank God for that!
I had a Park Tool FR-1.3 and it came off without any struggle.
I am a novice at being any type of bike mechanic but I do enjoy learning what I can.
Thanks All
