I would have one person move the swing arm up and down while someone else holds the bike (keep from swinging), and another person to pull on the screwdriver. You might need to vice grip the screwdriver to have leverage on it. At this point, a "bigger hammer" might be needed to get the screwdriver out.
    Yeah I think that's what I'll do, but at the same time don't want the handle to snap off, that'll create a bigger problem haha

    Well, if that handle snaps off, you could have someone weld a giant bar to the metal part of the screwdriver and then really get some leverage to pull it out. It may take something like that if moving things around at the same time doesn't work. Good luck.

    Please don't tear into the engine until you've read the Service Manual! This makes me nervous.

    Get a rear stand, and use a jack under the engine to relieve any downward force on the swingarm. Only when ALL of the force is relieved will the screwdriver come out.

    Yeah This removal is a real bear! On my Vader 125. I bottomed out a standard large drift pin and was think of anyway to continue. Found a 3/8" all thread that I ground away most of the threads so not to mar the inner bearing. Yes; all weight has to be off the swing arm. Take it slow.. I started marking the swing arm bolt so I could tell when progress was being made... You can feel/tell when you making progress. Heavy enough hammer so its impact jars/moves the bolt..
    You now know that these suckers need a bit of grease on the install.. Mine is still good but was looking to replace if need.. Under $20.00 on ebay

    So I gave up after trying EVERYTHING. I took it to a mechanic's shop and even they had trouble taking it off (they had like 4 guys working on it at the same time)... they finally took it out and that shaft was bent to hell and back. The threads were also shot in multiple areas, and the screwdriver came out in 2 pieces. It was cheaper than the sledgehammer and crowbar I bought lol, best $10 I have ever spent.
