Yes, I am having BAD luck. Got a flywheel puller, tried every trick in the book, no luck. Time to find a puller that will grab the flywheel externally. May try O'Reilly Auto this evening, see what types of pullers they have. Bought another flywheel from eBay, has threads in good condition, should arrive this week. That way if I totally destroy existing flywheel I'll have a replacement.

When you get the puller, try applying some heat around the area where the threads should be. Hope things go better!

What did race tech charge for the rebuild?

The total was $202; $177 for the rebuild plus $25 for their shipping charge. It cost me $28 to ship it to Race Tech so actually my total cost was around $230 for my BRAND NEW rebuilt shock.

swingarm

Got swingarm installed with new All Balls bearings/seals/thrust washers, new swingarm "thrust cover" and chain guard to replace the chewed-up piece:


Bet that the NEW monoshock will work well:

Put puller in freezer, heated flywheel. Tapped puller into flywheel (no threads), trying to get a friction fit:


Heated everything up to smoking HOT, flywheel won't budge. Puller slips out of flywheel:


Next attempt - going to O'Reilly's for a puller that will grab the slots in the flywheel or grab the outside edges. Cutting torch... anybody?

tank

Sanded off old flat black paint that PO must have sprayed on. Sanded down through a red primer down to the original yellow. Tank is pretty well beat up, will likely strip it and attempt to do some metal work:

Here's a little tip for ya Ray. Loosen up the monoshock so you can move it around before you install the pipe.

If I make that tank too purdy, I'll be afraid to put a scratch on it. Need opinions from the faithful.

Id be trying to get as much penetrating fluid in there as possible and put a rattle gun on it, if that doesn't work tighten the puller up then smack the head of the pusher bolt with a brass hammer.

Depends on how good you want it. I am concerned with your "metal work". That tank should be aluminum. Get something plastic and keep the stock tank in the rafters. I have a desert tank if you want it.....cheap. It may be an old dirt bike but it is a one year bike........keep that in mind.

I may take you up on that desert tank. I found a source for tanks, they had everything except a 1976 YZ400 tank, I'll try to find the link. Got pics of your tank? Price? PM me if you like.
edit: Found this at Clarke - http://clarkemfg.com/yz250125-7476-s...ity-p-244.html , says YZ250 but it might fit the 400 (?).
