I'm trying to get the flywheel off a 650 triple. There is no corrosion and everything looks clean, but when I attach the puller and torque it down, nothing moves. I've tried soaking with penetrant and rapping on the crankshaft, but it won't budge. Any ideas?

It's just a lot of pressure on the taper -- there is not likely and rust on it. Try rapping on the puller bolt but DO NOT try to remove the flywheel without using the correct puller. I can almost guarantee that your problem won't be solved without one. I wrecked the threads on an old sled's crank by getting too impatient with a cheap puller and a hammer.

I'm using a flywheel puller - it just doesn't want to come off. I've tried rapping on the crank and the puller bolt - still won't move. Someone suggested freezing the crank with freon, so I'll try that tomorrow.

I personally wouldn't do that but maybe others have had success with it. You probably just need more torque on the puller bolt and a little harder rap with the hammer. Sometimes a little heat helps too. Good luck.

good luck! i personally seen a guy wreck 3(count them 3!!!)snapon fly wheel pullers on a '99 xlt.he finally went to a dealer and they had a puller that took it off.on a side note,their will be many suggestions,some are good,some not so good.one that i would not try,is to tap on the side of the flywheel while the puller is tightened up.it cost me about 250 bucks because it broke the magnets loose inside and when we put the engine back in the sled and took it for a ride the magnets came loose and wrecked everthing inside the fly wheel. :banghead: :beerchug:

It came off fairly easy once I sprayed it with freon and tightened the puller, then tapped on the end of the puller bolt.

As high priced as R-12 is, hopefully you used r-22 or r134? :div20:

I cheated. I used VIP brand brake parts cleaner which is 30% freon (or freon like CFC in it). Only $1.79 a can and it had just enough go get it done (still iced up the crank shaft) :gasthrower:
