How do you lock the primary/clutch to remove primary nut?

How do you lock the primary sprocket and clutch down so I can remove primary nut?
I take it the primary side nut is 1 5/16th and a standard pattern.
I have removed the clutch basket nut, left hand thread and 1 3/16th and put it on by hand for the moment.
The manual says something about a locking tool. Anyone tell me how to get around this or a pic of the locking tool so I can fab one.
Thanks in advance.....
Neil

Nomad, I had that problem too as I didn't have the proper locking tool either. What I did to get around the problem was to put the bike in gear while sitting on it. I applied the rear brake quite hard while torquing the fastners with my left hand to attain the proper torque.
That certainly wasn't ideal and perhaps others will toss out some better options; but it did work for me to get the proper torque on both. Incidentally, metric sockets fit better for my application despite an alternate thread on here indicating otherwise. Good luck.

[well, that tip could be useless for ya if your wheel/swingarm etc is off]

I cut a 1x2 or 3 from a piece of wood trim that slid in tight on a angle and locked the front pulley to the rear pulley and kept it from turning. Basically the same thing the tool does.

Worked great

Purpledog,
Thanks for the info. I have removed the rear tire and dropped the swingarm already though so I am not able to do as you say..

Al,
Do you have a pic of it in the gears? Is it locking the chain down? I have not pictured in my head how it would be placed in yet looking at it. Does it sit in a angle between the teeth? Tell me how it placed in it and I will measure the distances in mine and make one also..
I do not have a impact so I am trying to use a socket and breaker bar to remove it. I do not have compressed air at the house but could get a electric impact if I needed too.
Thanks,
Neil

Nomad, you can cut a piece of wood with 45 degree angles on opposite ends in jam it between the gears. Do a search and you'll find plenty of different tools. It's been discussed on here a while back. You can also use PVC piping.

Neil, I used a 12" socket entension bar and wedged it in between the chain and sprokets. Worked great. I only removed the clutch hub when I put in the Bandit. Didn't remove the engine sproket.

I haven't had to do that in quite a while. What we do here is we take two red shop rags and wad them together. Jam them into the front sprocket between the sprocket and the primary chain. As you turn the nut the chain drive will lock up. The rag is soft and doesn't damage anything.

Agreed. Did that to get it off then did the "in gear/holding rear brake" for torqueing the new setup.

For the record...
I went out and purchased a 230ft lb electric impact wrench to remove the primary nut. Mind you the swing arm is hanging so no rear tire is on the bike and I have removed the clutch hub nut already as well. It is just turned on by hand. Did not lock down anything just put the 33mm impact socket on it and hit the trigger to see what would happen. Removed the nut without any hoopla... Just came on off. Thanks for those who said to use one.

Yes I used a impact 33 mm. Yes I purchased a 1 5/16 6 point socket that was 3/4 in drive and a 3/4 to 1/2 adapter. The 1 5/16, 6 point socket fit great too.

On the clutch basket nut, both a 30 mm or a 1 3/16th socket will fit fine as well. Left hand threads here.

Now back to contining to dis-assemby of the bike....
Neil

Yeah those sizes sound about right... I have used metric and standard on it... just depends what you have available.
