kfx 700 Spider removal tool

Hi there. I have a kawasaki kfx 700 from 2008 and one of the spider bushing has broke. I finaly succesed to remove the primary clutch with a clutch removal tool made from me at the lathe and heat threated the iron in the lab at the University. Now i have to remove the spider, and again... don't have the proper tool for that. I searched the net and wasn't able to find any detailed specs or pictures about this tool. Can somebody help me? Thank you very much.

All of this will be done at the lab at the University for Material Science in Romania as a experiment. All the help is needed.

I saw a guy use a piece of plywood to hold the back of the clutch. He cut grooves on the plywood that matched the cooling fins on the back of the clutch. and put a bolt through the center to hold the clutch tight to the plywood.

Doesn't vforcejohn sell bushings as well as a variety of repair parts? He has not been on here for sometime. I believe most of his communication is through his facebook page.

I finally finished making the Drive Pulley Holder and the Drive Pulley Wrench. Just some fine tunning adjusting left to fit perfect on the spider. I hope nothing brakes.
