OK First and foremost... I know Im a complete idiot.
The Issue: I have a 2002 YZ426 Im lighting up..
I laid the bike on its side to remove the stator and install my new WR stator and flywheel, and well.. I dropped the screw tip I was using into the crankcase. I tried to get a flexible telescoping magnet but its no use. Tomorrow ill take the right side of the crankcase off to see if I can find anything ( I was going to replace the gasket anyway) Does anyone have any idea of what I can do?
get a nice strong flexible magnet stick, thats what i got, it helps alot in the sense you can kind of just force it down and itll bend down and around a bit, saved my ass so many times i cant remember, because we all know that sometimes, shit happens, so them magnet sticks are very handy
, i know out snowmobiling we dont go out with out having 1 because its essential!
and hopefully opening your crank cover there will allow you to get at it i would think, because if you dropped it down in the timing chain shaft, that goes down to the stator there, so just pull that cover off no biggy, and i dont see how you could get it to go anywhere else like the little area where the piston and crankrod is any how, so should be a quick fix
