^ I was wondering that too. I thought they were 2 different shafts. But both turn in the same direction. On opposite sides of the tranny.

Yes I have Haynes manual. It has torque values once I get that far.

My Burgman crank and clutch turn counterclockwise, but both have rt. hand threads.... Hmmm, both are in the 70 ft. lb. range, neither one will loosen during use. No loctite needed.

Now to find the 48mm or 1-7/8 socket

Get the HD factory manual. It's worth it.

The sprocket nut doesn't have a conventional torque spec. At least on my '17 it's 50 lb/ft plus another 30-45 degrees of rotation. 3/4 drive socket with 3/4 drive breaker bar with a 4' cheater. Feels like about 350 lb/ft. It maxes out my 250 lb/ft torque wrench without getting enough rotation. It's also red Loctited (262), they don't come off easily.

I got a Craftsman 1 7/8" socket on e-bay and ground ~ 3/16" off removing the leade.

.
Hayne's manuals remind me of Scotty Kilmer car wrenching videos. You get an idea, but you really don't get the fine print. Even a factory manual requires a little bit of reading between the lines as it will get you do taking off stuff that isn't needed on some procedures.

We live in a great time with being able to download manuals as well as find the hard copy of fleabay. I use the digital exclusively so far as it easier than thumbing through pages even though I have the electrical and mechanical hard copy versions. You can download a PDF set for $15 that is hot linked to the various sections.

Oh yeah, Tractor Supply for individual sockets. Everyone else sells socket collections it seems.

Jim's & others offer a socket designed for the Sportster Pulley Nut; they have a 1/2" drive so you don't need a 1/2 - 3/4 drive adapter and the end is flat so you don't have to grind off a lead.

Vehicles are intended to be worked on using the correct tools including tech data, but some folks are hard-headed.

The Harley factory service manual, EDM (for later bikes which have those) and parts catalog are the most important tools you can have for your motorcycle so obtain them however you may and do it before you need them because they're dirt cheap compared to what they save you. It's also a very good idea to collect all the other HD tech data you can since the internet doesn't save everything forever.

I've found the Harley PDF Manual Trade and Share group on Fecesbook quite handy and the various free downloads from the Harley Service Information Portal which I save by printing to .pdf.

For sockets I just slice the correct (preferably impact because they're six points and not chromed but no big deal if not) socket with a zip disk, grind off the chamfer (which exists to center the broach during production and is of zero use to mechanics) and weld in a hunk of pipe the way it's been done longer than anyone reading this has been alive. Sometimes I'll weld in a smaller socket but usually not since I use a torque multiplier nowadays instead of an impact or long pipe. (Torque multipliers are glorious and I should have bought one forty years ago!)
