Hi,
After my recent bike theft and recovery I am rebuilding her and I have taken the rear wheel etc out.I then decided to remove the primary cases to repair the crankcase threads,can you see where this is going,I cannot now lock the clutch centre to undo the main nut doh!!.Any suggestions I have not got any spare clutch plates so thats method is out.Also what alarms do you use, I was going for a motion alarm with remote but can't find any(cheap) the ones on ebay have gone help!!

G'day Andy,
                     you can find clutch locking plates on fleabay for 6 or 4 spring jobs.
 As for alarms, motion types are good but a pain at a crowded bike show, and can be disarmed by wire snips. Where a chain and lock is obvious and needs heavy bolt cutters.

Thanks for the replies.Re the alarm it will be as well as the biggest chain and padlock you ever seen(Thatcham approved of course) it just another level of security.The clutch locking tool is a little expensive looks cool but the ebay idea is a goer will check.I have got an alarm now its a motion one with a security wire that if cut it goes off.I will be wiring in a hidden cut out as well. The bear pit is taking a little longer to dig but the stakes for the bottom are really sharp ;)

 Have you tried a ratchet air impact gun on the clutch centre? Works for me!

BOB has it in one hit.
Even had luck with an impact cordless drill.
The "haynes' tool is a length of flat strip bent so that it jambs in the slots.
