SOURCE: I need to remove rear wheel for tire change on 2003 vstar 650

Hi .... The Xs is conventional, ie straight out the back. Put a plank of wood or something similar under the centre stand, this'll give you a bit of extra height and once the spindle is out the wheel will come out slightly to one side. Problem comes if someone has fitted an aftermarket custom exhaust which reduces egress. Also if you still have standard twin exhausts you may have to lower swingarm (by disconnecting lower shock bolts (thus the plank) to remove spindle. Remember to note spacers as it comes apart and regrease spindle on re-assembly.

SOURCE: how do i remove the rear wheel on m 07 yamaha 1100

A motorcycle lift is always helpful. When desperate I have backed my cycle over the back of a curb onto boards, jacked up under the back, and removed the boards to gain tire dropping height. Raise the back of the bike high enough that you can drop the wheel out the bottom of the wheel well other wise you may have to take off a saddlebag , loosen the rear axle nut, take out the bolt, knock out the spacer , lift the caliper assembly out of the way and hang it by a wire, grab the wheel, and slide the wheel sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel wont slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste from your local Honda dealer when reassembling.

How do you remove the flywheel to get at the coil on a ts350 stihl saw

The official way to remove it is an M10x1 'Knock-off-tool' right hand threads. A 2 or 3 jawed puller will not remove the flywheel, and guaranteed damage will occur. Flywheels and crankshafts have a tapered design, so when installed with a nut, the taper tightens as the nut is tightened.
OK, you probably do not have one of those on your work bench, so lets make one or something like it.
1) remove spark plug,
2) insert a 12" piece of recoil rope (use about 6 or 8 inches) into the plug hole.
3) rotate the flywheel counter clockwise until the rope has bunched itself into the top of the cylinder, stopping the piston before 'top-dead-center'
*note: this would act as a replacement for a 'piston stop'. The rope is soft, so no damage to piston or cylinder will occur. If the rope gets caught on a cylinder port, you can back up the rotation, pull the rope out, and retry inserting the rope.
4) After removing the original flywheel nut (right hand threads, so righty-tighty, lefty-loosy)
purchase two M10 nuts, thread them onto the crankshaft (but not against the flywheel) so that the end of the crankshaft is not above the last nut.
5) turn the saw over to position the flywheel up, with a medium weight ball-pean hammer, strike the top nut with a good sharp wrap.
**note: Do NOT hit at an angle, use a square, straight down strike. Do NOT strike the end of the crankshaft. 2 strikes should do it, grasp the flywheel to check to see if it has loosened.
6) When reinstalling the flywheel and nut, tighten with the same force as when removing. 20 is the official torgue.

How to remove cover on flywheel

First thing is to pull the spark plug lead off so you can't have the machine accidently fire.
Locate bolts and nuts that hold covers in place and remove them and the covers.
There will be a nut in the centre of the flywheel. Loosen it so that it is just a bit higher than the the threads. Lift up on the flywheel and tap sharply down on the nut with a wood or plastic mallet (or use a block of wood and a hammer. The flywheel is on a tapered shaft so it will loosen upwards. Remove the nut and lift off the flywheel. Don't lose the metal key that aligns the flywheel in the correct position.
The parts that you want to play with will now be available.

How do you remove flywheel on Stihl TS-350 saw ?

You need to get a 2 or 3 jaw puller to remove it. The 3 is more easy to use if there is a place for all 3 jaws to grab. If you can only can get 2 jaws placed the placement is a little more tricky.

What direction does the flywheel nut come off on a 1971 kawasaki 90cc?

Hi, kawasaki use a normal thread on the flywheel retaining nut , anti clockwise will undo the nut, once the nut is removed, you will need a flywheel puller, the thread within the flywheel for the puller, is a lefthand thread, if you dont have a puller, its the same one as suzuki 50, yamaha 50 and honda50 which can be bought realitivly cheap, always remove washer from flywheel when usin a puller to ensure it screws all the way home

How do i remove the flywheel on a huqvarna 272

The fyywheel is on a taper, so there is a service tool to remove it, the early 372XP has a 14mm flywheel securing nut, this flywheel requires service tool 502514902, the crank has a normal wood ruff key, the later 372XP has a 13mm flywheel securing nut, this flywheel has an integral alloy key within the flywheel its self, there is a much simpler knock off service tool for removal 502519401.
Hope this answers your question.

I am unable remove the flywheel from a craftsman eager-1 mower

Use a large pry bar...your fingers won't do it, neither will a screwdriver (need leverage) can use the same nut that holds the flywheel on, just screw it down til the nut is flush with the shaft. You want to be hitting the "shaft' in the center, using the nut to prevent the hammer from damaging the thread. So you want to be hitting the nut & shaft as one surface. Take notice that there is a "key" holding the flywheel in position on the shaft, don't loose it !!
