Thanks Losiu & Goatherder! I think this will be the cure to my problem.

Cheers!

Hey Rapiti,

Even if replacing the spring doesn't work, the whole part isn't THAT expensive and it's an easy fix if you can get that flywheel off :)

Good luck :)

Hey Losiu! I went looking for the correct Polish beer for this job, but the closest my local store comes is Czech & German.

Next is the actual tool.

Do you have any dimensions for the flywheel puller? I am hoping I can find a standard-ish one to borrow/improvise.

Last night at dinner wheelies came up. My wife saw a fellow riding a wheelie down the freeway, and over a large suspension bridge at 120-130kph.
Everyone seemed to have their own wheelie story, and our friend who is an airline pilot related that one of his First Officer friends held the record for a wheelie from Dallas to Ft. Worth. Not the greatest distance, but amazing given the population density!

Wrong thread, I know, but you are the wheelie maestro! As this is an LC4-related thread, we might even avoid Ted's references to affectionate males.

Given our respective time zones, I hope to hear back on the tool sometime Monday!

Thanks, Losiu!

rapiti,

I just used a standard flywheel puller.



I had to get some really long 6mm bolts, in fact I got 6 really long 6mm bolts, cut the head off of three of them, and spliced them to the other three with a coupler nut, but in the end it worked great.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Jake

Thanks Jake!

Sorry for not replying earlier but I thought you got enough info on the puller. The one I used was made just to fit the thread and it doesn't even look like the little, tiny thing that KTM uses.

The beer was actually German, but I'd go for Chech if I had that choice.
You can check out the proper Polish beer right here.

Good luck. Post the results (of both drinking and fixing the bike)

PS. Rapiti, I think you're needed on the wheelie thread...

Cheap that I am, I bought a puller set from HF for $6.99, and scrounged up two 6mm bolts from old bicycle stems. I have been very buy with other stuff, so I simply bought the sprague clutch from Munn's. With the $60plus in the sprague clutch, I ma going to have to drink some to equal Losiu's beer/parts ratio!

I will tackle this project when the parts arrive...

This sound you guys were experiencing when the spring turned out to be the culprit, did it

1. Sound bad continuously when you pressed the starter button and cranked the engine

or

2. Sound bad when the motor didn't fire after you had let go of the button

Hey Johan,

Not sure about point two.
Maybe somebody who has or had the problem couldn confirm that...

My problem was that the bike did not want to start at all. Instead, the engine was making the noise described in the first post. Too bad I didn't think about recording the sound before starting the "how to" thread.

Sometimes, if I was lucky, the engine started, but generally it just made a lot of noise and it didn't want to turn over. It always starded when I kicked it, though.

3. all of the above.

It made the sound when the starter was engaged and there was a slight carry over after the button was released. Like a kaa-chuuuugh. That's what I remember at least.

Hi!

I have the exact same problem - starter clutch makes evil and scary noises.I decided to try and fix the damn thing.I drained the oil (i was planning an oil change anyway), screwed off the sideplate and also the big nut holding the flywheel and took the flywheel puller which was ordered according to parts catalogue number ( 26mm x 1mm, '88 - to present 400-620cc models was written on the package ).So heres the catch - THE SHIT WON'T FIT.So i measure the bolt where the puller has to go - 33mm and i still don't know the step of the screw.
I have 640 '00 model.

If anyone knows the measurements, please don't be shy

Regards,
Alan

Band goes the flywheel

It's been about a year since I did mine, and I thought I would be smart and order a flywheel puller from someplace - it didn't fit.

I finally got pissed and used a 3-arm gear puller that I got from HF for maybe $10. I couldn't twist it off with a breaker bar, so I got pissed again and used my 3/8" air gun and whadda ya know, it came off.

Now when I say came off, I'm being nice. It makes a very nice, and resounding "bang" noise, and comes off with some some speed. Make sure you have a nice place for it to land other than your shins or your feet.

Then I went and got pissed.

So, i managed to find out my bike's flywheel puller measurement.It's a 33mm x 1.5 Right Hand Female.It came out with long and extended internet research and with help of my friends in the first place.There were not so many concrete answers to it actually
