I've got to pull my centrifugal clutch, to replace the one way bearing, and none of my sockets are large enough for the lock nut in the center of the clutch. What size nut is this? does anyone happen to know? I already checked the manual, but couldn't find anything there, and I don't have calipers, so my only way to measure is to eyeball it with a tape measure.
also, Is there Anything I should know before doing this?
Thanks!

What kind of bike?
I use a 1-1/16 socket on 420's and 500's with an impact.
I also have the Honda clutch puller to get it off but I think you can rent a gear puller from a parts house just be very careful not to damage the crank with it.

Install the bearing the correct way and use a wet clutch oil when refill.

A trx350 doesn't have reverse threads so you don't have that to worry about.
You will also need a 2 prong gear puller like the silver one in the pic or if you want to spend the money you can order the black Honda clutch puller tool.
The silver gear puller can rented at most part houses. May want to use a c clamp or something to keep it from slipping off. That's the only other unusual tool you'll need for the job.

I went and got the bearing, which was 130$ from the dealer! im going to see if I can get a better price, but I still need to buy sealant. what would you recommend, and what is the installment procedure for the bearing and sealant?

sealant...for what ????????, there is no sealant when you replace the one-way bearing ?, you do however need to replace the side cover gasket if you tear it ? ( and most gaskets tear ), but do not use any kind of sealant !. the bearing is straight forward, pull the centrifugal clutch arms, drop the bearing in the drum, with '' this side out '' facing up looking at you, drop the arms back in, install, simple.

the sealant is for the front clutch cover. the dealer said there was no gasket. the manual says the clutch needs to be torqued i think it was 118nm. that is a lot.

Good job! You can get grey "right stufff" sealant at most part houses.
Remove all the old sealant with a razor blade and clean surfaces with brake cleaner so they are dry and not oily.
I put sealant on the engine side.... to me it's less messy while putting the cover on.

Don't forget to line up the ball bearing on the change clutch with the retainer on the cover and what ever you don't over tighten the bolts on the cover because they WILL break.
Also always use a wet clutch oil for your Honda not regular car oil and change the oil filter if needed.

06 350 FE, and I got it all together, but I need to buy sealant, so I cant put the cover back on until tomorrow.
.
yamabond or hondabond, most Honda dealerships sell this, I buy yamabond, about 10 bucks a tube ?, but worth it !. DO NOT USE RTV SEALANT !!!.
