Exclamation Repairing primary sprocket threads

My Suzuki GS 550 1978 nut backed off the primary sprocket and damaged some threads. How do I repair ? Die ?

No reason to kill yourself over it...
Buy a second nut and castle it (use a cutoff wheel and cut slots in it)
Start it on backwards to clean the threads. Or if it is the same as common ATV axle threads. I have a thread chaser kit. Let me know what size it is. Thread files work great as well, but I doubt there is room for that.

Jim I have some metric dies ( thread chaser might be a better choice) and thread file that has a special tip for tight places that may come in handy! Ray also right it start with a new nut and hopefully you have enough material left on the shaft to repair the threads! Can you take a close of pic of the output shaft?
