The crankshaft nut is tight, very tight. It also uses thread locker. To remove the nut I suggest using an impact wrench and socket. This typically will remove the nut with minimal trouble. If you don't have an impact and socket and are using a breaker bar then you need to first find something to insert into the primary chain such that it jams into the clutch basket ring gear and stops the primary drive from spinning. You'll then likely need to heat the nut to about 300 degrees so that the thread locker is softened and will release it. I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Thanks, P.J.
