I need to remove the shaft spacer on the splined shaft where the front pulley goes so I can replace is with a wider one to accommodate the chain drive front sprocket. I can't get a grip on it. After I removed the stock front pulley there's only like a 1/4" inch of the spacer sticking out of the oil seal. I'd really hate to have to have to take my bike to the dealer. Supposedly it just slides out but I'll be dammed if I can't get it out. Any help is appreciated.
