Well i refuse to go to my local shop unless im desperate.....they are a bunch of ass holes and they rip you off soo bad.....check this out. We got a mojave 250 from them, they said it was perfect, there machanic when all over it and said it was perfect, inside and out. Well we noticed it was hard to kick, but we never did anything about it. Went to check the timing and come to find out it has no decompression valve. Went up to them and bitched about it and they just turned there sholder. They lost customers for life!

order you a trail tech. I don't think the generic ones will work.

yea generic flywheel pullers wont work on them you can only use the specific OEM or trail tech flywheel puller and the 04-05 are different than the 06-07

Ive never bought one, and rebuild 3 motors so far. I used a pulley puller, it takes some time and patience but it CAN be done.
pulley puller


This is what worked best for me, its supposed to be a steering wheel puller, im just a dumb hick from ohio what do I know though lol....

Theres definetly a trick to it, you gotta take your time like I said, I put the bolts though the backside of the flywheel and threaded the nuts onto the puller, kinda hard to explain ill get pics if I remember today.

Should fire it up this afternoon, I just need to get off here and go shim the valves and put the sidecovers on

VROOM VROOM!!!!

i would NEVER use one of those, and here is why

that type has a center tool on it and presses into the center of the shaft to pull from

well the end of the crank has a oil squirt hole and that hole is how the roller bearing gets its oil to function properly, this is the bearing that always goes out to so less oil is going to be horrible

the RIGHT flywheel tool has a deep nut that threads over the entire end of the shaft to keep it from screwing up the oil squirt hole

that center puller will definatly screw that hole up and the seal inside the stator that it goes in

it will work MAYBE if your going to be putting a new crank in, but do not use that if your going to be re-useing the crank

I've also heard you can break off a piece of the crank with the generic kind.
