Exclamation cam sprocket removal help

wow, thanks! but i actually just got it off about an hour ago. all i used was an 8mm socket stuck in between the two sprockets. it caused just enough resistance when they two sprockets started to turn into each other to let me loosen the bolt, then just put it in the other side and you can do the other one, but just enough to loosen them. special tool my a@@!
