flywheel inner sludge

4 posts in this topic

I've removed the flywheel, only to find lots of probably undesired substance inside it.

Any clues what it is.

Bike had no electric issues.

could be engine oil detergent leftoevers, caught in the centrifuge :thumbsup:

Looks like it could be metallic, possibly tranny/clutch sludge caught by the rotor magnets...
