Just let the kawi tool arm rest on the footpeg and nut comes right off. Then have someone hold it underneath the footpeg when you tighten it back down.
I removed (Just) the pressure plate and clamped/ put pressure on the friction plates with my fingers. Then used an electric impact gun and the nut came right off! Same during installation Easy!

the surface tension of the oil across the plates will keep the clutch "applied" for long enough to zap the hub nut loose.

Beware of the Motion Pro tool from Motorcycle Superstore. It did not work at all for me, what a waste of 30$.

Necrothread for sure, but does anyone know how I can tell if my OEM detent arm is steel or ceramic bearing? The guide here states it's ceramic from the factory, but Factory Pro states the OEM is steel. Not sure if there's any reason to replace it or not. Thoughts?

Cancel that. Just got clarification from FP themselves. The mention of the OEM being "updated" was that they updated to a roller bearing (steel) from the friction pin/washer type on the 04-. FP claims the steel rollers on the OEM detent arm of the 05/06 is very good quality from what they've seen, and do not recommend replacing it unless you use a quick shifter, which I do not. Ordered the star kit on Amazon for $129 to the door. Here's to not false neutral'ing on the hairpin at Thunderhill anymore!
