Special tools?

Post by Cato » Sat May 16, 2020 11:27 am

It's been a while since I've owned an MT or anything with a Rotax single in it. I have the normal/general tools, so aside from the clutch holding tool and the flywheel puller is there anything else I should be adding to my kit?

Top cam sprocket puller. Easy to make from a bit of flat bar and tap threads in bar. Some sprockets slide off easy. But if loctited you will need a puller!

Bottom pulley usually comes off easy, but after market pullers are available. Try to get a double ended one that fits crank pulley and flywheel.

Clutch adjusting tool, cheap and makes the job quick and accurate, however, can be done without it with care.

Finally! Make a crank locking bolt 8 mm Allen head with around 60 degree point ground on the end.

I did see that, but it seems to be mostly discussing a basic tool kit. I was just after info on things like those in the replies here, pullers and so on, but if it's a duplicate post please delete it.
