    Installing the prop! I NEED HELP!!!

    I never thought it would be so hard to uninstall the stock YAMAHA prop form my 1200 XLT. That sucker won't budge. Is there a trick that I can do to hel pit come off easier? It feels like it's stuck there for good. I put the shaft on a vice & tugged, tugged & tugged. It didn't give way. Any & all help welcome. Please let me know guys!

    way to point out the obvious guys. but yea- reverse threads... and they can be a son of a gun.... mine i used a huge wrench and a rubber mallet to crank it off... smacked it good 4x and it was loose. then use antiseize to reinstall so you don't hav ethis problem next time you change it!
