I am in the process of replacing the primary drive and clutch assembly. any recommendations on getting the main clutch nutt torqued without using a clutch tool? I was able to get it off with an impact initially, but dont want to put it back on that way. Thanks

You can install all the metals and fibers and then take your hand and push in on the last fiber plate to keep it from spinning.

Put the bike in a high gear and place a board through the spokes across the swing arm to lock the transmission. Then you can torque it up in peace.
