Yes, I just did it to refinish mine. The nut on the sprocket side is right hand thread. When you pull it off, you will find a steel sleeve and behind that and aluminum spacer sleeve. Make sure that you do not foget the thin steel whasher behind the nuts. The whole assembly slides out from the brake side. Do not forget to lube the bearings when you re-assemeble. I hope this helps.
