this is what worked for me.....stand the bike up on the rear, but the socket on with a good size breaker bar on it, it's tough, but this was the only way I was able to get it off...couldn't even budge it while it was on all four

it royally sucks to get off. Neither of my impacts would remove it. I had to borrow my mechanic buddies 1000 ft lb Ingersoll Rand impact to get it off.

if you dont have access to a comercial impact gun than it may not take it off

personally a 5 foot bar on a wrench is what has worked best for us,

i couldn't get mine to budge..took it to a shop, impact on the ground wouldn't budge it either...stood it up, but on a big breaker bar and presto, off it came...just make sure you have some good leverage and it'll come off

we used a banshee flywheel puller...with a freaking huge sockets and put some ass into it and it came out pretty easy.if you are talking about the one where the bearings are.


just a word of advice if you are getting PCing done make sure they tape that off good cause the guys that did mine created alot of work for me :075: by not taping it good :blink:

Hey 1BADYFZ

I got mine off standing the bike up and used a breaker bar.It would help if you had a two or three foot cheater pipe.Good luck and don't hurt your back man.Standing it up is way better than having the bike on all four,plus your standing up to do the job. :techBones:

like velocity cpc and schwendi said....leverage is key...every extra foot you add to that pipe adds hundreds more footlbs of torque...5 footer should do the trick....

dont be a pussy :D
