can not remove bolt that holds rotor (r90/6)

okay i am trying to remove the rotor (alternator) and the bolt wont come off, (i read its should not be on tight) but everytime i turn the wrench, the rotor will spin. what do i have to do to stop the rotor from spinning so i can take that one bolt out?

just did this yesterday. put bike in gear, and depress the rear brake with your foot. it may still spin a lil, but keep pressure it any it'll pop loose.

Put it in gear and press on the rear brake lever

Stick a big fat flat blade screwdriver in the timing window, remove the rubber plug. Wedge the screwdriver against the flywheel teeth. Hold fly wheel while turning alt bolt. Careful not to be too sloppy about this and cause the screwdriver to bang against the engine case. It could ding the timing window hole, maybe, but not likely.

That's an oil filter wrench holding the rotor.

That can destroy a rotor. If the segment halves turn in the slightest relative to each other, you buy a new one.
