I agree with the other 2 dudes. An impact works on almost everything. It has saved my on numerous occasions. I have one and a portable compressor if you want to borrow it. It will be payback for letting me use your brake bleeder.

I have heard of people stuffing rags between the hub and basket - they get bound up and hold everything in place. then you just need to keep the back wheel from spinning. also be sure to un-stake the nut if it is staked into a groove on the input shaft.

I just hold the basket with a gloved hand. Use the impact to remove and reinstall. No tool needed.

It has forward and reverse buttercup. I also have a set of deep impact sockets that go up to an 1 1/2" I think. How big are your nuts?

This sounds like it could end up with broken fingers or a mangled hand

I was with you. I have a torque wrench also. You have to figure out how to keep all the from moving, I'm no expert when it comes to that.

this is the method we used for pulling the clutch on a ysr back in my tmgp days.

more recently, I used it to torque down the bolt on my fzr clutch basket (used the impact gun to remove in the first place).

best to use a rag you don't mind shredding a bit, though...

It's still attached to the crank. Its not gonna spin as fast as you might think. I have always had the plugs in when doing it.
