I removed my basket initially to put the new updated more oil holes bushing in w/ an impact wrench and held the basket w a small piece of wood. The second time to put my Hinson in, I shattered the whole unit and had to re-order the base....Good luck......

No special tools needed. Just did this one myself.

Hammer/drill out a little of that indent thats on the nut (you'll see what I mean) then get a breaker bar and the socket.

Put it in 5th gear before you pull the clutch cover off then drop it with a heavy friend sitting on the bike and holding the front/rear brakes...she'll brake right loose.
