    Default Handy Tool

    This tool works for stock configuration (aluminum primary) 4 speeds and Baker 6in4.

    Baker spec is 60 lb/ft plus 45 degrees rotation w/red Loctite) on the MDG sprocket nut.

    HD wants 105-120 lb/ft on 83 and earlier and 80-90 lb/ft on late 83 and 84.

    Hard to get if you are working alone. This tool has saved a lot of frustration and cursing during the last few years..

    Nice tool. . . . but I notice in the picture that the trans top is removed. Sliding the gears about to lock the transmission accomplishes the same thing as the tool.

    Yes you are correct. But I use this tool in a shop setting and in most cases the trans top is not removed. This tool is a huge time saver in a shop environment.

    (Example pics are of work on my bike during other maintenance. I was replacing the shift drum detent roller and MDG and mainshaft seals.)

    That is fucking tight man, thanks! Couldn't think of how to do this last time, so I stuck the chain back on, and on the wheel, then stuck a hammer between the wagon spoke and swingarm. I like your idea a lot better.

    This is the Jim's tool - pricey for one use. You can use a strap wrench with a nylon strap or a strap wrench with the strap replaced with a length of drive belt matching the pully pitch..

    Don't have a pic of the modified strap wrench - sorry..

    I made the chain sprocket holding tool.

    The belt pulley holding tool is a Jim's p.n. 2260...

    The Jim's tool is pretty old - I don't recall for sure where I got the Jim's tool. Google "Jim's USA" or "Jims 2260" to find a dealer - I have seen Jim's tools on EBay and Amazon. Jim's tools are at the top end of the price range, the quality is excellent, and for daily use are well worth the investment. They always work and you don't fuck up your customer's parts. For one time use they are expensive...

    The 2260 is likely around $160 retail.

    There are less expensive versions (and they're so simple to make that should not be a surprise) of the belt sprocket tool but the slickest one I've seen is homemade bu another 33er which is just a plate notched to match the pulley and kept from rotating by bolting it to the transmission case.

    https://www.georges-garage.com/produ...-locking-tool/ is less expensive but always note the stuff like pretty anodizing which is just beauty to justify the price of a tool so inexpensive to CNC. (Billet is cheap but marketing makes people imagine it's special, see Apple products for another example.)

    I use one of these. Works fine and I prefer steel to aluminum where I have to apply serious force.

    I made something similar for my triumph sprocket, mine is for engine out of frame, wrap chain around sprocket, bolt metal tab down to table.

    Bolting to table is an interesting idea since it turns the table into a very large "chain wrench" that could work with bare shafts too.
