Post centre nut in clutch basket
Hey all i own a kawasaki stockman (kl250) 2001. anyways i burnt out the clutch and im looking to replace it myself. with the centre nut i've heard ppl saying impact/rattle gun's are the way to get it off. but im curious would using a 3/8 22mm socket ratchet to get it off and put it back on will be fine or not?

hi mate
you should not have to remove the clutch basket to replace the plates

As per Bestbuddy reply, you should not have to remove the hub or basket to replace the plates?

The basket and hub look fine in that pic,
Just whack some new plates in.

Usually just pull plates out leaving in basket,is the nut on top of pressure plate or recessed into inner hub,
if on pressure plate i would undo nut,ratchet should be fine just lock it up some hoe to stop turning.

the pressure plate (that the springs pushed on)
should lift out exposing the plates.

the nut will hold the hub
(with the pedestals that the clutch spring bolts screwed into)

the nut cannot hold the pressure plate cause the pressure plate has to lift up off the plates when you squeeze the clutch lever.

the pressure plate may be stuck to the plates,
which will be stuck to the bottom of the hub,
since you have mentioned that you have cooked the clutch.

try carefully using a screwdriver to lever the pressure plate off the top clutch plate right on the edge where the J is in Japan.
