If you do not have another person to apply the rear brake pedal to remove/install the flywheel nut..............apply the rear brake and insert a flat blade screwdriver between the rear brake pedal and the pedal adjuster cam.

Cheers

To change out the sprague you will need a flywheel puller and also come up with a method to hold the engine from turning over under the high torque of the flywheel nut... The crank locking bolt is not the method to use as it will damage the crank webs... What I have done is to put the bike in a higher gear and use an air impact to free the nut {opposite thread, clockwise loosens}... And when it comes to tightening use a torque wrench and have someone step on the rear brake as you torque the nut...

Another way to do it is to use a pin wrench similar to what Tseta has used to fit the locking holes in the back of the flywheel and hold it from turning while torquing... To do this method you will need to remove the inner flywheel cover to get at it...
Ooohh! It's reversed threaded??? Thanks god you mentioned it, otherwise something tells me that I would have been cursing substantialy this comming weekend!

I ordered the flyweel extractor at the same time as the starter clutch. I also went ahead and got the clutch basket tool cause I think I'm gonna have a look at the oil pumps and the retaining clip/bar of the bearing that hides behing the clutch, that seems to sometimes wearout due to the bearing chattering or some such...

Turns out Tseta that you where on the money. Replaced the starter clutch today and hot-starting issue is gone. :)

And I tested the kick start before changing it and it started the bike no problem! Had I know I would have been a lot more relax last weekend on the trails... well, live and learn.

Again, thank you all for the help!

Sorting out the issues

I'd chalk up all these little puzzles you've had to solve as a good learning experience... It's a bonus to the traveler to be familiar with the inner workings of the engine and be able to maintain and repair things without looking for a dealership every time.... I read many ride reports where a such a simple thing as a flat tire can be a show stopper due to lack of basic knowledge...

We'll see you when you get out to the coast...
