So I am going to replace my track on my 09 apex plus bearings in chain case. I believe the large nut of the shaft in the chain case is a 36MM but what tool do I need for the nut behind the secondary clutch on the jack shaft? I heard there is a special tool you need to tight and remove this nut. Any help would be great

This is the nut on the back side of the bearing on the split collar. I was told there is a special tool to tighten the slit collar with the nut

never owned the tool myself. you are probably looking for a spanner wrench like the one for adjusting coilover shock springs. i tend to use a hammer and punch/chisel on my stuff and have not had one come loose yet.

I used a spanner wrench.

any other thoughts about that tool
that tool pictured will not work, you cant get that tool over the jackshaft, use a spanner wrench, leave the secondary on and use that to turn and loosen nut, same with install.
