if you have air thought i still suggest using an air wrench.
if you do not have air go to a shop/store and ask to borrow an electric impact wrench.
then hold the fly wheel with one hand, or better yet recruit some poor innocent passer by to hold the fly wheel, while you use the impact driver to loosen the bolt.
Also, probably a stupid question, but when checking valve clearance, do you take the measurements from the front of the bike (looking at the windscreen) or the back (looking at the controls)? I also can't seem to figure out which cylinder is which... 1-4 starting from the left if you're looking at the controls?
that doesn't matter. what does matter is you take the measurement with the lobes not pushing down on the valve.
my bike's manual says to put the intake and exhaust lobes at about the 11 o clock and 2 o clock position for each cylinder and measure . that's where the piston is at top dead center. you have to turn the motor over by hand to achieve this for each cylinder.
I bought my gauges at sears. find the kind that have the kickup (bend) they're way easier to get in there.
