Two things, getting the rear wheel off and the clutch shaft....

So, replaced the chain and checked both sprockets, ran into a few things:

A. So this rear wheel, the shop that did my tires must have really put them on. I actually broke my proper socket. Had the bike strapped down, used a breaker bar, etc. Just popped. Also twisted the extension a bit.

Im going to look into getting an air compressor and gun but I need to make sure and replace my tool with something legit. This one was just aluminum. Does someone sell one that is steel?

B. So when removing the front sprocket cover the manual explicitly states "do not let the shaft come out." It doesn't really go into detail. Mine kind of came out a little, like 3/4" before I could get some pliers in there to put just enough pressure on it to hold it in place while pulling the slave cylinder/cover off. It wiggled back in (first some resistance but you could feel it slide past something and go back in).

Any concerns? Anything I should check or do regarding this? The manual didnt really state the consequences if it came out any. I havent put it all back together yet, waiting to get some feedback.

You are fine. Mine has came out several inches before with no problem. Like you said you could feel it being stopped by something then going past it.
Hope your wheel nut is not on like the one Ed had. Do a search on his. He had the wheel nut from hell.

The clutch rod only damages the oil seal if you pull all the way out, the end grooves can cut the gearbox oil seal.

I pulled that rod out like 5 times and it still doesn't leak a drop. You're fine.
