Hey guys....another letdown by my local honda dealership surprise surprise the flywheel puller they ordered for me was the wrong one...so I have decided to bypass their substandard services as much as humanely possible from now on...if anyone knows a good site that would ship one of these to western canada asap or maybe has a spare for sale that would fit my 1982 z50's flywheel I would love to hear from you



thanks,



Matt P

Leave the flywheel nut on but loose, tap on it (not on the end of the threaded shaft!) with a hammer while a friend applies pressure on each side of the flywheel with 2 large screw drivers. It'll pop right off.

Welcome to the club, Matt. My local Honda shop did the same thing to me. No shot at a refund either. After waiting a week for it to arrive, I'm stuck with a worthless POS. The best part is, when I went to try and get my money back, I noticed a flywheel puller on the shelf that had been there for months. Out of curiousity, I asked to see it. (I asked if it was for a crf50 before I ordered the pOS one, they said no) Well, guess what? It said it would work on crf50s! Apparently the salesman did not have his glasses on that day.



Go back and tell Honda that you want the Motion Pro flywheel puller. Don't forget to tell them that it is unfair to you, the customer, to have to pay for something you did not even want or need. (There is no way you could tell it would not fit until after you already tore into the crappy blister packaging) I have a feeling they are going to have a BS excuse and not offer a refund tho.



What a drag.. I could have saved a week's wait and $15. Good luck Matt. :D

Did you know it the flywheel puller was reverse threaded? I didn't when I first got mine and spent a good 15 minutes cursing at it and myself and then felt really stupid when I found out you have to turn it to the left to get it in the flywheel. I'm just stating the obvious.
