The compensating sprocket nut is indeed right hand threads. It is torqued to 150-165 foot pounds of torque and usually has Locktite 271 (red) in it. A lot of mechanics go overboard with the Loctite. I've seen the entire inside of the nut "painted" with this stuff. The book calls for "two lines" of the stuff when putting the nut back on.
The easiest way to get the nut off is with a GOOD air wrench. I bought one of those Ingersol-Rand Titanium air wrenches. I've seen nuts on so tight that I've had to use a 3/4" air wrench to get them off. If you don't want to purchase an air wrench, load the bike on a trailer and take it to a tire store. Ask them to take the nut off for you. Usually they'll do it free but they may charge you a couple of dollars. It is worth a couple of dollars to get the nut off.
When putting the bike back together, the compensator sprocket torques to 150-165 ft lbs. of torque with two lines of 271 Loctite in it. The clutch hub nut torques 60-80 ft. lbs. left handed with one line of 271 Locktite. Make sure your torque wrench will torque in the left handed direction. Not all wrenches will.

Testimonial: "Thank you very much i had already geussed that a rattle gun may do the job and sure enough it did i borrowed a 3/4 gun, and you were right it had a lo"
SOURCE: cant undo nut
No they are not left hand thead,normal r/h thread.
make sure chain is still on bike and front sproket and then try good rattle gun. if this does not work,put bike in gear and hold on rear brake and use long breaker bar, if still no good will need to heat front sproket nut with oxy set very carefully and rattle off with rattle gun while nut is hot
