Crankshaft removal tips?

Can anyone tell me the right way to remove the clutch assembly to get to the crankshaft? I have the top end off and the clutch side cover off.

What happened is the bike was sized(it sat for some time), so I thought it was the piston and took the top end off, but that wasn't what was seized....

turns out the piston is sized to the crankshaft..... Witch can be good in a way I guess....

Any tips?

Thanks.

It may also help if anyone knows where I can download a copy of the 1984 Z50 manual....

You will need an impact drive to remove the three phillips screws from the clutch cover. Then you will need the correct clutch socket to remove the clutch nut. Once you have the entire clutch off, you need to remove every single thing you possibly can from the outside of the cases. Don't forget the shift drum bolt on the left side of the motor above the CS under the black plug. I included links to the tools you need and an online PDF manual.

Here's a manual for a 1979 Z50R.

I just took mine ,and a few friends off with a screw driver... lol

but ya definitely need the clutch socket, thats a must to do it right

Well if he's working on a 23 year old motor that is rusted stuck, a screwdriver may not be sufficient.

impact screwdriver is the only way. dont even try without it because you probly will strip out the screws, then your really screwed.

clutch sockets r for *******

what you cant say puss!es?? thats bullsh!t

puss ys? puss ys that like to have their clutches torqued on..

you actually recommend a impact screw driver, but not a clutch socket?!

its got a locking washer. its not going to come loose. it shouldnt be very tight anyways. ive never damaged anything. when i first redid my clutch i was given the wrong springs and rebuilt my clutch like 20 times trying to figure out what i did wrong. by then i had a FULL understanding of the clutch and realized what was wrong. its been fully abused and ridden without a problem.

the right tool for the job is ALWAYS important, but without money for a tourqe wrench and the special socket you can for sure get away without it.
