done this for 3 bikes already, only thing you need to be sure is to get a flat tip chizel, or i can lend you mine and line it up on the gap like this. i have yet to have a problem with any of the bikes i did this to....OR you can just buy the special tool

or take a dremel to the correct sized socket and make your own tool.

Remove the nut from the left (clutch) side before you try to unscrew the shaft. The shaft itself is threaded. All the tool or chisel in the world doesn't help if you start on the right side. Suspending rear of the bike in the air from overhead help a lot too.

You have a rear stand?
Put bike on stand
Remove foot pegs, flip over and reinstall
Install jack stands under pegs
remove rear stand
git-r-done!

That works too. Luckily my old garage had exposed rafters. In my new garage I screwed a big hook onto a single rafter over my lift. It holds the rear just fine. The front wheel is in a chalk on the lift and I get the rear about 1" off of the lift. Ratchet straps work well.
