First time believe it or not I managed with a spanner. SInce then its been its been a 1/4" extension. The job became easier after I swapped the rear disk for an EBC. Still no walk in the park though.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

Anybody found an easy way?

I just use a spanner and tighten away.
I was wondering if a different sprocket would be easier, but a different (EBC) disc, how does that work  :084:?

Got a point on brake caliper, my 3/8" extension won't go through sprocket for torqueing, I make it up with 1/4" extension & adaptors. Only top quality 1/4" bits will take that torque, I know, bust a few, didn't want to bust me best. If I could find a slim or turned down 3/8" extension that would do. The 3/8" square will go through but the dia of the bar is as the diagonal, approx 11.5mm, turned down to 10mm, would work.

Anybody found an easy way?

Youve reminded me, my first rear sprocket change was a JT sprocket and the 3/8 bar would go through that one. I then got all flash with a Renthal and it wouldnt again, back to the U/J  :006:
