I bought a heavy duty Dennis Kirk clutch puller for my Exciter 570 restoration and used a cordless impact but the puller just went in and bent but the clutch failed to come off, what am I doing wrong?

I pump a few pumps of grease in first, some spray with PB Blaster and let soak.
I have heard of laying sled on it's side and filling with water (have not tried myself)

But basically getting tension on the crank shaft and then giving it a shock will usually do it.
Try putting tension with a breaker bar and the motor locked (bar through clutch) and I mean well over 100# and let it sit over night then give it a bit more and Tap it with a sledge!
It WILL scare you when it pops!

Several years ago working on my Big ZR (1035 Hooper) I cork screwed a good puller I had for 20 plus years, it happens!

I didn't, I had an angled tuning fork that went away from the crank case and the tips of it didn't touch the case but thanks for your information. The motor the clutch came off needs a complete rebuild anyways and I already built a new one.
