Works very well
I used this tool during a rebuild on a 98/99 CR125R motor. The trick is to be very careful not to set the tension tight at all on the clamp...the hubs are aluminum and will crack with to much pressure from the clamp. Just make sure to to turn the knob until is barely snugs up the wrench enough to seat it in the grooves, and be sure to seat the clamps at least 3/4 of the way deep on the hub so there is more surface area to grab which also puts less stress on the hub. Otherwise you could put additinal stress on the aluminum hub if you only clamp around the top edge of the hub. This tool did it's job and worked very well...I was able to easily hold the tool and torque the hub to spec (43ft lbs) using a torque wrench, I am very happy with it and would recommend it to anyone. I gave it 4 stars b/c of course a custom specific application tool would fit better, but this tool has significant meat on the clamp ends so they could be easily ground down thinner if needed for a better fit on certain hubs...a nice tool indeed, it also doubles as a sprocket holder on the back side. I was happy to see my local bike shop stocked the tool as I was in a rush to get the tool to finish a rebuild. Hope that helps anyone looking for a clutch/sprocket holding tool.
