Got a 2004 Kodak 450 4x4 and am replacing the timing chain. Can't get the sprocket bolt out... Is there any chance it's reverse thread or could I be doing something wrong? Thanks

I don't have a 450 to know the correct answer, and couldn't find a 450 video to confirm either.
A service manual can be had for a few bucks on-line.
If you're close to a dealer, ask to look at a bolt.

That bolt is not lefthanded. Turn counter clockwise to loosen. It is torqued to 43lbs. Has it been worked on in the past?

I just got it a couple months ago. Rode it once. After I rode it I took it off the truck when it was off and some how the timing chain snapped. Still not sure how it all happened but trying to put a new one on

So it has had 11 years of somebody wrenching on it.
Could be that some ape without a torque wrench has the bolt cranked up to 75-100-150 lbs and/or put some loktite on it. I would go after it gently with an impact. Sometimes a tightening a bolt just a little before trying to loosen it helps.
Does the cam still rotate.

Yea seams to rotate just fine. The plate in front of the sprocket moved also when I tried breaking it free
