Good evening and welcome.  Here is the link to the puller sold by Dennis Kirk.

https://www.denniskirk.com/parts-unlimited/clutch-puller-kawasaki-80001146.p28146.prd/28146.sku

Generally I use a good impact wrench and do not need to use any other tools to hold the clutch when removing or installing.

Looks like you picked up a 81.  I have one of those in the garage doing a very slow rebuild.

Welcome to the site!!

 mswyka is correct on the puller.  81 is a great sled and worthy of great effort to keep it going.  My 81 is looking a bit rough these days but still starts and goes.  Well---except for the time I melted her down on an 80mph+ run 15 years ago.  Clean the cylinder up and a fresh piston and away we go!!

I am quite fond of our 1980 Invader, but since the 81 has the softer ski springs and the vari-ride suspension I am looking forward to completing the re-build of the 81.

Be sure to check out the "So you got a "New to you Kawasaki snowmobile"" thread.  There is quite a bit of good information there.  Others can share their thoughts.  After the first few learning projects we now replace pistons, rings, crank seals, carb jets, filters, fuel lines, and fluids before trying to run or ride a new-to-us sled.
