The sproket is on a carrier and is held in place on the wheel. You need to remove the axle and the wheel. Caliper removal is optional (sometimes).

For future reference, there is a table with all the important torque values near the front of your service manual. In mine it's call Table 1 I think. Anyway, if you don't have a service manual you'd be wise to get one. Invaluable.
