    Removing the flywheel

    What do I need to do this? I have a Harmonic Balancer Puller but I don't think thats what I need.

    And I guess it looks like I need a flywheel holder?


    I am sending this thing off to Crankworks, think they would remove it for me? I am waiting on an email back from them on if they have OEM yamah 1300 rods in stock to replace my one broke one. They are going to be doing the inspection, welding, and truing of the crank.

    There's a special tool for removing the flywheel. I used Nando's when I pulled mine.

    Chris, a harmonic balancer puller has always worked for me, just be sure that the center bolt cant get into the threads in the crank. You will have to have an impact unless you have some sort of strap wrench to hold the crank or flywheel still.

    I dont remember what thread pitch bolts you have to have(I think they are 8mmX1.25), but I just used some old head bolts I had laying around.

    ditto, that what I used. Give it a tap once you get the tension on it and it will "pop" right off.

    Get one with a pointed tip unlike the one i have.Make sure the diameter of the bolt(puller bolt) is smaller than the opening of the flywheel.The flat,swivel tip one like i have works great,i just use a 10mm,1/4 drive socket to put in the flywheel hole.

    Thanks guys, mine has a pointed tip. I am going to try to remove it here in a bit!

    Do I need to remove the coupler on the back of the crank before I send it to crankworks?

    The cheap ones from harbor freight work fine...

    If you've never taken it off before it's not too bad. Just be ready for the "boom/crack" noise it makes when it breaks loose. It will sound like you broke something.

    Please do not use a pointed tip on your pullers !!!

    IMO this could cause a problem and potentially break the end of the crank.

    I use a blunt end that pivots, just larger than the bolt hole.
