New Flywheel install issues 08 RXP-X
Ok, So I had to install a new flywheel from an SC failure. Flywheel is from an 04 (using my magneto and cup). First I installed it and totally forgot about aligning the crank pin with the flywheel. OF course it would not start. Today I got around to taking it back apart. The crank pin was mushroomed a bit so I drilled out the small hole in the flywheel to match the size. Aligned it to the small hole on the cup and reinstalled. Still it will not start, just one backfire and that was it.
Can someone possibly post up a pick of how it looks when it is correctly installed? (flywheel to magneto cup pic) I felt sure I had it right today and Im about tired of pulling the PTO lol.
any help is appreciated.

Bump, need someone to give me a pic or post of a shop manual page if possible on how to install the magneto/cup correctly.

Eric, I can send you the relevant pages from the 2008 shop manual when I get home from work if you like.

I think I really need a picture. The shop manual is not helping to much

You will have to remove thwe pin and effectively rotate the mag on the crank think its 2 holes anti clockwise but im not 100% its deff 2 holes but cant remember which way.
Hope that helps some. R88

I agree with water4fire here, it would be best to get the right flywheel, I know that you can just remove the pin and turn the mag and they run but Im not 100% convinced that it lines the timing up perfect as far as the ignition is concerned.
This is all because they moved the crank sensor in 06, it now at like 7-8 0 clock on the bottom of the pto as opposed to being at 12 inside the pto on the early engines.
My 04 engine has a late crank, but I have standalone so know the timing is perfect, you cant change the base timing in the stock ECU.

I was told the flywheel is the same?? Im not using the magneto and cup from the 04. Im using the mine. so the 04 flywheel is the issue??? I was under the impression its only related to the trigger wheel when it comes to timing?
