Default want to borrow clutch holding tool

Just wondering if any uk members would be willing to lend me a clutch holding tool, cos i dont really want to pay ?20 + 10 postage for something i might use once.

Only downside is i will need it posting to me in lithuania
I have no problem to pay for postage to my address and then back to uk.

Should royal mail lose it i'll buy you a new one.

Hope someone can help me out

You can make your own with 1/8" steel flat bar. Buy a 4' section, bend the ends, and join in the middle with a bolt. not too tight, of course. Then just use them like scissors.

I added bolts at the straight end to help removing flywheels. 5/16" bolts (8mm) sticking out just enough to hold engage the flywheel holes.

I've never used a clutch holding tool, this is how I do it. Clamp 4 steel and 3 fibre plates together using 2 pairs of mole grips, don't clamp them too tight or you may damage them. Then lock the primary drive and clutch basket gear with a penny then undo/torque up nut. I have used this method on many bikes, and never had a problem

You lock the primary drive (Crank) gear and clutch basket gear with a penny, being copper it is soft so shouldn't damage the gears (If you look in the pic you should just be able to see the penny). Alternate the (4) steel and (3) fibre plates (steels on outside), with these clamped together they lock the clutch inner to the basket. The torque setting is 60nm or 44ft-lbs. I got these figures from a torque table some where on this site.

1" width bar, bends are about 2" or so. The 4' flat bar is cut in half for the two pieces of the tool.

It is long, ungainly, and awkward to use. However, you can use the tool without removing the RH case cover, you can just remove the clutch cover and be done.

Another trick is to rivet the plates together instead of pliers, although I do like the simplicity of the pliers. You can probably wedge the pliers against the foot pedal so you don't have to wedge a penny between the gears. I'm a bit leery jamming a penny in there, it puts loads on the bearings that aren't part of the design. I'm a bit of a conservative worry-wart, though.
