Most OEM's use a big nut to hold the clutch hub to the output shaft. If you've got an impact gun you won't need a clutch tool to get it off. Individual sockets are available at a Pep Boys, Auto Zone, etc.

Take a picture of the clutch pack, that doesn't seem right. You are just replacing the plates, right?

Does it look like this on a Honda VTX? If so, I used a large flat head screwdriver and a hammer. I stuck the blade in the little nooks on the nut and hit it at a 45* angle. It is not that tight.
