Lets start a new pool.
(1).When will Yamaha have the fix for the woodruff key?
(2).If it involves parts, when will the parts be available? Actually in dealer stock.
#1 I'll say April 1st
#2 I'll say May 15th

"When the flywheel comes off, inspect the center-hub rivets and look for tiny cracks in the hub around the rivets. Replace the flywheel if there are any cracks. Big-bore bikes may have problems with shearing flywheel Woodruff keys, especially on the KX500 and YZ490. The problem is that the flywheel is not matched to the crank at the taper, but that can be corrected, using the following procedure. Remove the Woodruff key and apply grinding paste to the crank's taper. Hands press the flywheel onto the crank and turn it back and forth for five minutes. This will hone down the high spots on the surfaces of each part so the flywheel won't ever loosen up and shear the Woodruff key. After matching, clean the parts thoroughly with contact cleaner."
