With out the clutch holder it can be tricky to do. Try this, I hope I can explain it well enough as it worked for me.
Find a ratchet strap, take the loose end out and discard the ratchet mechanisim. You should be holding a strap with one hook on one end and nothing on the other. Take the end with no hook and feed it into the cage or whatever its called. Spin the hub around and get the strap to wrap around the hub, much like a yo yo. once you think you have enough in there. Hook the hook onto something like an exhaust bolt and go to town. It should look almost like you could pull start it if you do this right.
ALSO dont forget to un peen the little spot that locks the nut to the couter shaft.
It's crazy but works really well if you do not have the tools. Good luck, I hope you get it!
Lastly when reinstalling, use the right torque wrench on the springs, those bolts are delicate little things.
yes I can I was seeing if I could brace the holding tool on something to make it a little easier on myself. The bike is on a rear stand and I was trying to get something on the ground so the tool could push against it while I unlock the nut. I got plent for the avatars.
Yeah exactly bryan... I mean if you are working on the clutch of an R1, you probably have/will put a lot of torque through that tranny. Just think about the force on the tranny during wheelie, im sure the tranny can take the force of removing this nut.
So, doing some head work now that I have my motor apart for an unrelated issue. Machine work, maybe a valve job, bump compression slightly, that sort of thing. Have been running a PCV for years with a generic map. To take advantage of all this work I know I now need to get a proper full exhaust...
Hey all, I recently had my ecu flashed and dont know if I should remove the power commander 3. What are y'alls thoughts and why or why not? I'll be taking my bike to the shop for a couple of things and was going to dyno (3 runs at $75) to see how well the flash did and if it needs tweaked...
Owned my 5vy R1 for about 5 yrs now, been a great bike, tuned with a pcv running autotune.
All has been great then late last year i noticed from cold, cyl2 would misfire at cold start up for about 15 seconds then purr into life and off i would go

Error code 1 popped up while riding the other day along with hi temp flashing. speedo and Tach quit working.
after a few minutes of riding the code went away and everything was fine. then a few minutes later it was back this process keeps repeating.
unlike the posts i have read on here most...
Little background. Trying to get some good old fashioned forum help for this issue. Started recently overheating while riding. Ambient temperatures not extreme (70-85°F only). Radiator fans are working properly. Radiator is clean. Installed a new thermostat and took it for a ride. Seemed to work...
