Your probably going to have to make a device to hold or lock your clutch......I did...mine was made from a disk from an old brake caliper....and then a two feet piece of angle iron....on stock Harleys with chain drives ...you can use an old t shirt tied in a knot or similar and throw it in to jam the front pulley.. you may be able to do that...maybe..look up some you tube videos and get an idea on how to make something........EDIT....., all you are going to need in this case is just the long piece of angle iron...the device I made was to hold so I could remove the clutch nut...much more difficult.....took several hours to make that one,,,,but you are going to have to do that too..right?

I was just curios to find out how holding the brake pedal down could lock the clutch...they must have your brake stopping the bike at the clutch housing also...

Now I remember..I couldn't do that by myself...... but they do have bikes now that they are braking at the clutch housing..pretty cool concept...but probably look gaudy on a custom......

Just use an impact gun to knock it loose. Reinstalling should be done manually with torque wrench though.

It probably has lochtite on it, heat it up a little, if you smell lochtite heat it some more and hit it with the impact. There's lot's of ways to hold the pulley but since most guys use red lochtite on that nut you'll need heat to get the nut to move.

That bitch is tight. I used a 3/4 ratchet with a 2' foot pipe on the end of the ratchet to get mine off and it was still a bitch. If you don't have anything like above to lock the pulley it would be useless. I would try a 3/4 impact if you can get your hands on one.
