I've got a bunch of freewheel removers in my box. I think there were a couple of styles of Suntour remover. I don't remember. I'm getting senile.
I'm with metabike, if you've never worked with freewheels, ashtabulas, krappy headsets, you don't know how easy today's new bikes are.
If you don't have a vice, you can put a vice grip tool on the freewheel remover (with the skewer as metabike says), put on a pair of boots on, and slam down hard with the bottom of your boot. Never, ever failed me even with the most stubburn freewheel.
