Flywheel nut removal - safest way with no holder?
Posted June 11, 2008 - 04:32 PM
The suggestion was to put the bike in gear, hold down the rear brake and undo the nut.
Is there a chance by doing this I could damage the dogs on the gear?
Not sure how much torque is going thru the gearbox when riding, but could a large amount of torque applied at one point be a bad thing?
I have the puller but not the flywheel holder.

I use an electric impact gun to remove and install, never had a problem.
Similar to Creeky: I have always used an air impact gun for these types of jobs on all my bikes.
I hold the flywheel/clutch basket/countershaft sprocket (whatever) in my left hand with a thick welding glove on and hit it with the "rattle gun".

1st is way too low a gear and way too hard to hold the brake! 5th is like a vise! Duh!
How do I know this?
