I'm trying to take my sprocket side spindle bolt out, but it just wont budge... no matter how much i try.... probably because them stupid guys that put it on used locktight.... any idea on how to get it out.

Well that is a real bitch right there. I hate when that happens and i am encountering a similar difficulty. Spray WD 40 around it, see if that helps, otherwise take your crank off like a 2piece.

Sometimes your crank will be reverse threaded where the sprocket bolt threads in thats why they add Loctite. soak it in WD-40 and try turning it the opposite way youre trying to loosen it and if that doesnt work just muscle it and hope you dont strip it haha

you could try taking it off like a 2 piece crank, and lightly tapping the end of the spindle without an arm. That will push the spindle out a little bit and might help crack the bolt loose too since it's not jammed up against anything

Well i bought new bolts for the spindle so im putting the new bolt on there. thats why im taking the old bolts out.

This happened with my stem on the bottom bolt attached to the forks sad I stripped the allen key and had to end up cutting the bolt with a hack saw.

Heat it up with a lighter or blow torch. if you have an oxygen torch that would be even better. if it is locktited it will undo with ease

Try shocking it by giving it a hard bang direct on to the bolt, it quite often works. Hopefully it should do it
