    You need a tool to lock the crankshaft from turning (bolts into the puller threaded holes on the harmonic balancer) so that you can use a 27mm 3/4" socket on a breaker bar to undo the bolt.

    The bolt is often locktited in place so a lot of force could be needed and in extreme cases some heat on the bolthead itself

    There are many threads on this site about this .

    looks from your location like you are close to KLR - you could get them to do it for you

    The breaker bar on the chassis rail trick works really well, and its only scary the first time you do it.

    Ps for tightening, the recommendation from the local landy bloke was to jam a wedge between the block and the crank (like a .5"X2" alloy block) - worked perfect. Does require removal of the sump but its a good idea to pull the sump and pick up and give them a good clean - my pick up had a huge amount of **** in the screen, not far from fully blocked.
