sheared key patch
Posted March 30, 2003 - 05:54 PM
hills two miles from truck.The flywheel turned easily independently of the crank.At the time
I tried to line up the keyway without flywheel removal unsuccessfully.
Since then the bike has not failed again but I have only rode fifty miles somewhat afraid
of having to leave it in the middle of nowhere. Today I marked the end of the crank with a
small dot at 12 oclock position and flywheel at top dead center now if the nut backs off
and the Key shears I can put the dot on crank at 12oclock and the flywheel at TDC then
Tighten the nut this may allow me to ride out.

the work on the key problem for me. I must say my dealer is great he even offered my old
bike to use when my WR was down.I actually worked at this dealership in 1972 to 1974 and
again in1979 to 1983 and went to all Honda tech schools dealership sells Honda's also.
I am glad most people have not had this many problems, the bike is great as long as it
is running it starts great and good response when jetted and free mods are done. Thanks
for the other tips.

Just looking for clarification so that correct information is passed on to all those who haven't done anything yet.
