Just posting what worked for me. It might not work for you if you are not comfortable with that sort of thing. The $25 ebay wrench looks like a good solution for the small retainer.

Too much weight

I would never even think about 75 pounds of weight on the subframe, even on smooth roads. Unless you plan on seriously beefing it up, you're asking for trouble on a 650R IMHO.
