Crude but it works. If the bike has the side cover off I use a shop rag in between the primary gears.

I will try to describe this without a picture. You can make a basic puller if you have 2 sections of schedule 40 pipe about 1-1/2" wide. For example 3" and 3-1/2".
1) Cut the 3-1/2" pipe section so you have an arc 3-4" long.
2) Then cut the smaller (3") about 1-2" long.
3) Drill and tap the larger section 1/2 to 5/8" for a threaded rod.
4) Weld a nut or base with a hole to the smaller inside section.
5) LAST- Cut a piece of 12-14 ga steel and use two screws on either side to secure it to the larger (3-1/2) section.
You then use the rod to thread through the large section and push the small section against the rotor to tighten the band of steel around the rotor.
This is basically an old Bultaco flywheel puller. I have changed the bands for anything I need to hold. To cushion the interior 'foot' I glued on a piece of leather.
If you can bend some 3/16" steel on your own all you need is some welding and a good drill or drill press.
