Special tools

Thanks guys!

Here I was happy with my flywheel puller just after it made that metallic TINK noise popping loose on the crank. Split the case, piece of cake (I think to myself).

Well not so fast! Right behind the flywheel is a wonderful ring nut (#14, thank you Suzuki!!!) that according to the manual also requires a special tool. Google results show the ring nut socket costs more than the flywheel puller! Pfft, special tools, someone must have a workaround. JamminJay on ThumperTalk did.

$60 flywheel puller and $8 ring nut tool (pre "machining").

Looks like Jay also had a mill which I don't so this could get ugly.
