let me opt out. I don't know, but it may not be made to come off, the axle with the sprocket may have to be removed after removing the inner retainer, on the end of axle and pulling shaft out the side. But I'm not sure. Please do not reply or it will lock your question. Sorry.

Thanks. Bare with me while I look up the info

Click on this link below and let me know if this is the sprocket you are referring to? If so you will see the bolts around the perimeter at the center hub area that mount it to the drive motor. Remove the bolts to remove the sprocket once the track is remover after the track tension is released. Let me know if there is more information or help you need.

Okay great. Remove the bolts # ***** and you can remove the sprocket with the track off of the machine. Sometimes you might have to hit it with a sledge hammer to break it loose.

Expert:  Dan replied 11 months ago.

So, Machine supported safely off the ground to be able to remove the track after releasing the tension loosening the relief fitting to let the grease out and then removing the sprocket as I mentioned. Let me know if you need any further help. I log in in between jobs as time allows. Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need as that is how the site credits me for my time helping on the site.
