I absolutely love my Deluxe but at times miss the Iron 1200 I traded for it. Still have Cat-Rat, the '05 Sportster but it's not quite the same with that rock hard seat and bobber style tires. I still am looking for a 21" front wheel for it.I love taking my wife’s 48 special around the town. People tend to underestimate those 1200’s.

Not like this one?Every time I do something, it's just got to be a PitFA.
So, I ordered a full Rivera/Primo pro clutch rather than just the kit that uses the stock basket. Came in today, sweet.
Open up the primary, comp nut was loose, which I knew already. Took everything out, cleaned the crap out of the nut and the shaft, soaked the clutch friction disks.
Get down to put it all together, got the comp nut on, making sure I used the HIGH STRENGTHA rather than HIGH TEMPERATURE thread locker (they're both red, grabbed the wrong one last time).
Begin with the clutch now, can't lock the fn clutch down. It's like the BDL clutch all over again, only this time I don't have an allen wrench that will fit to jamb between the hubs and even if I did, I don't want to risk damaging the splines.
So, I see in the instructions, there is a clutch locking tool. Go online to the Rivera website... tool not found when I search by name or part number. So I search by category, look under tools, there is no hub locking tool. 😠
So, does anyone know of a universal clutch locking tool that will work with a Rivera clutch? I tried like, putting the bike on the ground and putting it in gear and jambing it into the garage door with my wife to help me steady and all I could manage to do when trying to tighten the hub nut, is to spin the back tire. I have already emailed them asking about it. Google search doesn't result in anything except places where it is sold out and ONE tool, with no reviews that's made in the UK, but I don't trust because I never heard of them and it's projected to take a month to get here if I did order it.

I don't know if the teeth will fit into the splines of the inner hub. I read reviews of several like this that they don't hold worth a damn, with several also saying they had to grind it down to even get it in the grooves (they're meant for square grooves). I went ahead and ordered one anyway earlier (different brand). The other issue is, for tightening, will two prongs hold for 80 ft lbs without chipping or breaking the spines or themselves breaking?Not like this one?
