Use a impact gun to buzz that nut off.

Warning: Do NOT use a impact to tighten that nut or the crankshaft nut holding the variator.

Have a buddy sit on the bike who applies the rear brake lever.

If you use a impact gun, then there is no need for a helper.

Yep, lefty loosy rightie tightie. And make sure you torque it to factory spec (see factory service manual) when putting the nut back on.

One more thing, if you using a buddy make sure that bike is not on the center stand. The whole point of the helper is to put as much weight as possible on the rear wheel while contacting the ground.
