Here is a link that shows how to make a homemade Honda differential lock nut tool. This tool is used to remove the pinion shaft from any Honda front or rear differential, so you can replace the bearings or gears. Also, I think this tool will work for most other brands of ATV

The small pinion bearing comes out by working the retainer ring to the hole
