Question about 2003 Yamaha YZ 125
I need to replace the piston rod bearing and the rings and I need to split the motor and I dont know how to take off the magneto
If replacing the piston pin bearing no splitting is needed. If replacing the crank pin bearing splitting is needed. You knew that I am sure but I had to clarify. The flywheel is held in place with one washer and a nut on the end of the crank. Timing is accomplished with a woodruff key on the shaft. Using a flywheel puller tool is the proper method. It is a simple and low cost tool and it sounds like you have enough knowledge of engines to need one now and in the future. In a worst case scenario, use a mallet, striking the flywheel on four points around the perimeter of the wheel and in an "outward" direction. With some luck the flywheel will pop loose.
When you are purchasing the flywheel puller, buy a case splitter also. Also reasonably low cost, it makes the splitting clean and easy. I strongly suggest you install new crank bearings and seals. Whatever caused the crank pin bearing to go bad did not do the crank main bearings any good either. I would hate to see you have to split the case again eight weeks from now.
How are you planning to separate the crank halves, re-assembly and truing of the crank? The dealer should do this part. I can't find a free repair manual on the web but the next best is a parts diagram. Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.
Top rating on this solution? Thanks!
