Easy tool to remove pinion nut on 08 Honda rancher rear end/diff

I don't think this method is limited to just an 08. I bought a 6$ pipe fitting at Home Depot and grinded all the sides down until it could fit right in the pinion nut spun it off with a vice and huge channel locks and some elbow grease, but I think big vicegrips would be better!
The pipe fitting was I think 1 1/2 x 1 1/4 don't quote me bring your diff in just to make sure the pipe fitting slides over your pinion gear as it does in the picture! Figured I would share this since I couldn't find any other tools to work. Click the image to open in full size.

1 1/2 x 1 1/2 square tubing, and a large pipe wrench works good too, that's what I use. almost all of these lock nuts are the same size on most Honda atvs.

All that I could find at Home Depot to work was that pipe fitting but also great to know! Thanks. And I checked local hardware / Napa stores near me with nothing.

if anyone ever needs to buy the ring and pinion set , the after market suppliers will sell you the tool for the pinion retaining nut for $20 added to the cost of the ring and pinion

they really are not that expensive to buy , $23.99 and free shipping is hard to beat

That fit a 420 too?

Racksdeep, that's good info on the pipe fitting! I like to make tools unless the ready-to-go ones are cheap!

Did not know that, but still saves you an extra 15 bucks or so and the wait for shipping.

Ok well if you don't want to spend more than 6$ and wait for shipping use my method. Home Depot pipe fitting and a grinder.
