Works pretty well in holding the basket. Its a time saver and stops you from jabbing your hand. It would be 5 stars if it was model bike specific because I feel it would give a better purchase on the basket, but it works.

Great tool, works well.
used on my 08 crf 450r and it worked great and was easy to use
great tool and one of the few required to tear down a dirtbike engine. this tool also is required to get the proper torque spec on the nut thats under the pressure plate.
Did my first ever clutch and needed a way to hold the basket and crank to properly torque the nut. These did the trick. Was still a little tricky adjusting the jaws and they popped of on me at first so they only got 4 stars.
MotoSPORT.com. Is there any other place for anything Moto???
The tool made the job much easyer
just snug up the set screw. i changed my clutch basket by myself and this tool made it possible. the long handle can be positioned to brace against the foot peg to keep it from turning and use 2 hands to break the nut loose and on my torque wrench. no impact or air tools required
This clutch holder is simple and does the job well, works the best with a main gear stopper and an impact wrench. You'll be changing clutches in a matter of minutes! Make sure you don't over tighten or you risk damaging your inner hub. Sometimes an extra set of hands helps to keep the holder from slipping out of place. Either way, this tool works great.
I stumbled across this tool (THANKS Motosport) when I decided to replace my tired original OEM clutch with an EBC SRK clutch. I have worked on everything on wheels for a half century or so and thought that this tool was intended for those who have no imagination. WRONG!
The simplicity of design and well thought out engineering of this simple tool makes it worth several times the cost.
The damage you can do being creative will cost you a magnitude more than the cost of the tool.
