No way man...too much invested to give up on it now. I am well past the value of the bike, so no turning back now.

Anyone in thread: Does anyone have a recommendation where to get a tool to hold the Stator(generator) in place and get the nut off the end of the crankshaft?? KTM has one, of course, but I am scared to see what its price is.

No money, no time, no truck and no trailer...NO go this year. Ride the local pines and you might have a DZ spotting.

It would entail removing the clutch cover, but couldn't you use this relatively inexpensive tool?

Or.... Impact wrench?

Clutch side should not be an issue(hopefully), its stator side:

The puller is all you need.
A piston stop,if you don't use a impact to pull the fly wheel nut.

Yeah, we'll see. Boy should be almost a year old by then...might be easier to handle.

Hopefully bike will be together and running.

Thanks Scotty...I'll get out and ride with you guys yet.

So, although I did not really get any further with motor, but my buddy did bring over the tool I need for both the clutch side and the flywheel/stator side, to get further into motor.

We did a little brainstorming, and since all the usual culprits were all intact, rings, alignment pins, circlip, etc. , he came up with a theory that a small piece of the nikasil coating might have come off, and caused this damage. I am starting to think that might be right....especially since when I put it pack together the first time, the cylinder did have a very very small spot on one of the lower ports that chipped. I also could have chipped or scratched it when I redid the base gaskets, trying to chase my lean condition.

I would have never thought that Nikasil coating was that hard...but if so, could have acted like a grain of hard sand.

Thoughts??

The coating is extremly thin and adheres to the cyl material well, I guess that could happen but it'd be extremly rare. The Nikasal process is well proven in that regard, that's not to say the plating company did everything correctly.

Have you pulled the jug ?
Did it lock and stay locked up....or free up after cooling off ?
What pilot,needle,main and slide ?

These motors need lots of fuel,in the sand.

The hard starting you had was screaming very lean pilot.

I use one of those (large size) rubber strap wrenches that Lowe's and Home Depot have. The one I bought had 3 sizes (the small one went into the kitchen drawer to open jars ).
