So I tried to follow the various posts covering removal and cleaning of the clutch plates - I have some groan when taking off with any rpm above stalling. I got to the point of removing the pressure plate but the rod is stuck to the plate and also seems to be hung up somewhere else on the slave side. I see lots of posts about people drifting the rod out from the pressure plate once the unit is out but can I just use a gear puller to pop the plate off the rod, leaving the rod where it is in the bike?

Basically, I'd do what this guy is doing to his Monster at about 5:10 (if that helps). The pressure plate/rod connection looks the same to me. Thanks much.

Some clutch push rods have a "t" at slave side that fits into slots on slave so rod does not spin. How about a piece of wood under two sides of pressure plate and drive rod out with a drift? McGiver maintenance.
