Thanks for the tip. I tried this but still no go. Used PB Blaster for the penetrating oil. I'm gonna stick with the 15t for awhile. In the meantime will search for a tool to pull the sprocket off. Thanks again.Spray the splines with penetrating oil tonight. Tomorrow put the bike in 1st gear and yank it forward and backwards for a couple minutes.

Here is another thought.You probably will like that 16 T. I even had a 17 T on mine once when I was going for super long mpg.
In the absence of a gear puller, you might try tapping it in several different spots with a metal drift. Don’t blast it hard or you might damage the transmission bearings but some judicious tappings around the perimeter of it might break loose whatever is holding it.
Spray some WD 40, wait an hour, hit it with a rubber hammer, then pry it off with a big honkin' flat-head screw driver.I was hoping to replace the stock 15t with a 16t.
Removed the nut and locking washer. The front sprocket should just slide off.
But I cannot pull it off!
I use ATF and Acetone, it has worked a treat on heavy machinery parts that I have been having difficulty removing. I have had to use an application of high temperature as well on a few occasions.50/50 mix of acetone and ATF makes some fantastic penetrating fluid. I believe it works better than most commercial dedicated "penetrating" oils
