my sprocket nut on the ABS bike took a lot of effort to break loose. On my non-ABS bike it was no big deal.
Finally made a PVC breaker bar so I didn't hurt myself (or more importantly the bike). Success!

I did attempt to put the chain on the sprocket first but couldn't get it past the clutch assembly/housing, then I tried putting the sprocket on first then the chain but the gap was too small

Yes, chain slack isn't an issue, just the clearance in front of the sprocket

I'm having issues re-installing the chain on the slightly larger 16t front sprocket. Any tricks out there?

greywolf The service manual has a bad spec. Use 83lb-ft, the spec for exactly the same nut down to the part number used on the DL1000 which has more power and no lock nut. 105lb-ft is not needed. It's a 32mm nut. A 1-1/4" socket also works fine.
