    Tricks to remove Flywheel cover?

    Anyone have a tip to remove a flywheel cover without damaging it? I have removed the five bolts and tapping with a rubber mallet. No luck, doesn't even budge. Tempted to use sledge hammer, but defeats the damaging part. Any ideas?

    Always good to mention what model and engine you are asking about. Perhaps you could update your Profile so we can better keep track of who has what.

    I don't do much with the Fuji engines, but I suspect you need to break the gasket adhesion, and that might require some prying to get the cover to become free.
    Edit: Nope, I am not a Fuji guy.
    Gotta make sure you have all the bolts out first, apparently!

    I put a screwdriver 1/2 way into a bolt hole, and GENTLY pry against the cover. NOT alot of force is needed.

    Usually I do one side until the silicone lets loose, then the other. She'll come off pretty easy.

    Remember that there's 2 dowel pins aligning it, so you really want to pry it towards you, not side ways.

    Thanks for the reply guys. As it turns out on the SL750 there are 6 bolts, not five... The one behind the bracket is a tricky one to catch.

    Thanks again
