Head Removal Question
I'm in the process of pulling the head from my bike and have gotten as far as removing the cams but have a question regarding removal of the front cam chain guide. According to the service manual you first need to remove the idle gear and crankshaft sensor. Ok, I have no problems with that. However, you also need to remove the starter clutch and according to page 16-51 in the manual, you need to hold the alternator rotor steady with a rotor holder while you unscrew the starter clutch bolt.
My question is what tool are people using to hold the rotor steady? I'm sure most aren't using the $200+ thingy they're pushing in the service manual.
