I finally got it done. Pulling the slave off and clamping the piston seemed to be the key. That and having about five hands. Had to recruit the kids to help.
Ron, thanks for the follow up via post and emails.
Now it just have to sort out the other problem that appeared during the test ride. I'll post that one under the tuneEcu thread.
Edit: I have to say that there is a big improvement in the clutch. What I thought was an already smooth shifting bike is even better now.
