I would recommend you get the FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL aka BOB (Big Orange Book) I had the salesman throw in BOB when I purchased my 2000 Dak in November of 1999. It contains the same instructions that the factory techs. use.
I am looking at BOB right now... It appears you are askig about the CAMSHAFT sprocket.
Here is excerpt from BOB:
*) ..12 steps before here....
*)remove the LEFT and RIGHT camshaft sproket bolts
*)Hold LEFT camshaft tube with pliers remove the LEFT camshaft sproket.
*) Slowley rotate LEFT camshaft approx 15 degrees clockwise to a neutral position.
*)Hold RIGHT camshaft with pliers and remove the RIGHT camshaft sproket.
*) Slowley rotate RIGHT camshaft approx 45 degrees counterclockwise to a neutral position.
*) Remove idler sproket bolt
*) ...it continues
There is no mention of the camshaft sprokets being pressed on.
