I am going to change the crank in my 06yz450f and need to purchase a crank puller/installer. Will the Tusk crank puller/installer work on my bike? I dont really want to buy a yamaha crank installer because they are expensive. Thanks!

And to answer my own question, Yes it will work on the 06YZ450 magneto side only. The right side crankcase slides right on and off.

I have rebuilt several engines and not needed the puller except once and that was when I didn't know better. Freeze the crank and heat the bearings. It will go into place easily. If not, you can make a simple crank puller with a piece of PVC and a metal plate with a hole in it.
