    flywheel stuck on crank

    finally got the damn thing off. cut off sections of the rotor w/ plasma until enough removed to get an angle grinder in there to slice thru the rotor hub. still wouldnt budge. heated hub until almost red, ran the shortened puller bolt back in, tightened, tapped with a hammer, and it finally popped. no damage to crank taper, new rotor installed, back together, runs great. was tempted to never seize the taper but didnt. could find no cause of why it wouldnt come loose as normal. ugly mess but it turned out well.

    yes this sucks, the gear will lock up under finger pressure, will grab occasionally with the starter then slip.

    flywheel stuck on crank

    yes im worried about ruining crank brgs. threads gone on the motion pro puller bolt. cut off the stripped part twice now to have good threads at the end. 2nd puller bolt, 1 try left before the slide hammer comes out. really on there good. planning for the worst, i have a used flywheel coming.

    flywheel stuck on crank

    still no luck, heat, impact, hammer. have to cut down the puller bolt again as the threads are now gone. thinking of welding a piece of chain to the hub inside and using a slide hammer. i know this will ruin the flywheel, but it has to come off. this thing is stubborn.

    flywheel stuck on crank

    ive had it off before, torqued correctly. the started one way sprag bearing is bad so it has to come off. im on my second puller bolt, 1st stripped. wd40 between crank and wheel. heated that snout in the ctr of the flywheel several times, still no luck. thinking about heating again and melting some wax into the joint but really dont want wax in there. anyone have suggestions?

    xr650l MEGAJOLT cdi conversion

    i have had the megajolt for yrs now, before anything else was available. it uses a ford edis igniter, ford coil on plug, and a machined 36 tooth trigger wheel with 1 tooth missing as the trigger. there is some redundancy, for example, if the megajolt controller fails for some reason, the edis continues to function giving a limp home mode using a flat 10deg advance. you can use 2 switchable programs too. the static timing can be changed via program from -5 deg to +5deg for a bit more adjustability. i probably would have used the ignitech if it was available when i switched to the megajolt only because of ease of installation. the megajolt has a couple more options that i like so im glad i put out the extra work. megajolt has all of this stuff too. plus the limp mode, and can be modified to use to use tbi instead of map input if you want to add injection. i would agree anything is better than stock. this was the only thing on the bike that couldnt be adjusted before. dont know what the ignitech costs, but when i bought the megajolt some years ago, it was available in a kit form for 84 bucks. i see now theyre only available pre made. they are made in lynnwood, wa. and easy to get a hold of for support. they also make other race ignition parts.
