Holding the brake isn't enough...
Thanks in advance!

Last weekend I was up on the bank of a small creek, inadvertently hit neutral and I fell off the bike and down about 8 feet! So I shortened neutral which is why I had the clutch out! It works great! Now I have to work to get to neutral...

What does that mean and do?
I imagine he modified the selector drum so as to make neutral less obvious, making it harder to accidentally hit it changing form second to first.

The way I do it is to simply hold the clutch boss in my hand and run the nut down with the impact wrench, but if I didn't have such a tool, I would put the bike in 5th and lay a 1x2 across the swing arm, through the spokes, as near the rim as possible.
put the bike in 5th gear then hold the brake. it will hold then
Holding the brake is impractical because it requires you to put the pedal back on just for that.
