Tusk type crank puller was created by PDXtyist

Anyone have experience with the Tusk type of fly wheel puller on their early 70’s Yamahas?
I am interested in one for my TY250A. The measurements of the crank threads are:
Left side M12 1.25
Right side M18 1.0
My main question is can one use crankshaft nuts from the bike to make the puller pull. The Tusk system isn’t equipped with the M18 1.0 so I was thinking to use the bike’s nut. I want to be able to pull from both sides.

Contact DEET.

He makes a tool that I believe has all the Yamaha thread adapters. 

Or check...  if the TY is like most Yamahas the clutch side is a slip fit and may not require a tool to pull it through the bearing.
