How do I know if my Woodruff Key is broken?
Posted November 27, 2004 - 08:47 PM
-my bike has been hard to start during the last week
-bike ran fine until it died
-couldn't kick it or bump it. Tried towing the thing for a fast bump and...no go.
-changed out the plug and still wouldn't go.
-jumpstarted the battery with cables and it wouldn't turn over.
I dunno....might be the starter, but how would I know if it was the key???
Lemme know. Thanks in advance.
P.S Check out the pic of this in the Pics and video forum

Remove the access cap for the flywheel nut and see if the nut is loose. If it isn't, I'd pull the side cover and look at it.
It might be qiucker to check nut first if it is not loose remove tappet cover and check cam timing marks as per your manual if cam marks still align parrallel with head but flywheel mark is out you have sheared the woodruff key
