So I'm impatient. I ordered the wrong spanner tool size because I didn't read enough and learn from the mistakes of others. The right size will take a few days before it gets here and I don't want to wait. Is there any other way to get this nut off??

Soak your clutchplates on oil while you wait.

There sure is!
Get a long drift and a hammer, and you can tap that nut off no problem. Just set the drift in the notch, such that you can tap it counterclockwise. And hold the drift tightly. You don't want it slipping out and damaging your clutch basket. I do it often, and set them back on the same way. Yeah, I know...no torque wrench.

By drift you mean flat-head screwdriver, no? ;0)

I would think more like a long pin punch

Hummm - clutch replacement on a 06? How many miles are on it? Do you do mostly in town riding? --- wondering how long they last on average.

I thought 20k miles was typical (and low-mark) for a clutch replacement.

Clutches can last a long time if treated right. Our Shadow 1100 clutches are still going stong after 60K plus miles.
