Goofy countershaft sprocket question

So I'm past due on a good chain and sprocket cleaning. Go to loosen the front sprocket bolt so I can get all the gook out from behind it. It's very much stuck! Before I go screwing up the threads using a breaker bar I have to ask this basic question:

The countershaft bolt isn't threaded backwards is it? It's been quite a while since I had it apart. Going lefty doesn't seem to be getting loosey. Don't remember where I experienced it but either my old Honda 3 wheeler or the 919 has a backwards threaded countershaft bolt.

Anyone?

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

The manual does not mention anything special about the "drive sprocket"
bolt except for the punch mark (on sprocket) facing out, torque to 40 lbf.ft.
Well.. it does call it a "special bolt".. I have not had mine off, I use spray chain cleaner and kerosene. I am sure someone who has, will speak up here soon.

OK, more umph to the left it is - Thanks Peg.

And, West, I use kerosene also along with medium and small size nylon brushes. Right along the same method as Bigdaa but I don't actually submerge the chain in kerosene. Use a metal mesh basket turned upside down in the drain pan and give it the ole rinse, brush, rinse.
