You will need a flywheel pullers. Most 50 to 125cc *** motorcycles of that vintage use the same size pullers so there should be no problem getting one. When you get a pullers remove the centre nut from the flywheel and screw the pullers into the flywheel. This has a left-hand thread. There is a way of doing it without the special tool but you need to be careful or you can damage the end of the crank. After you remove the flywheel nut replace it onto the crankshaft but do not tighten it up. Instead screw it up until it's flush with the threads on the crank. You now need an assistant to insert two screwdriver 180 degrees apart under the flywheel and lever it off. While they are doing this hit the flywheel nut several sharp blows with a hammer. Don't hit it too hard or you will damage the threads on the crank. Its best to get the flywheel tool. not expensive.

Finding timing marks 1972 honda cl100

The flywheel cover will need to be removed from the right hand side of your crank case. You will probably need to remove the shift lever from the shift shaft too. This is accomplished by removing the bolt from the lever with a 10mm wrench and sliding the lever from the shaft. Next remove the #2 philips screws that attach the flywheel cover to the case. When you get the cover off you will be looking at the flywheel. On the upper edge of the crank case there should be a vee shaped notch in the casting. This should align with the line marked "F" stamped onto the flywheel when the points are just opening. There is also a "T" line stamped into the flywheel too and this the firing position when the timing is advanced mechanicaly with the engine running. This can be checked with a timing light at about 3000 rpm. I can send pictures if you want to email me.

85 XR 250 fuel drain out from the side air vent on main carb and out of bottom bowls air vents.???

Sounds like a float and/or float needle sticking, probably due to dirt or fuel that has aged and gone bad. A good carb cleaning should help. (A real good thorough one)

I like to see the timing marks ,and were they are

Remove valve cover and look at cam gears, the marks are on the gears themselves, Three marks on each cam one arrow showing up and two lines that are parrallel to the head and valve cover when at top dead center. The crank mark is on the flywheel pully, this will point up and line up to the mark on the plastic cover when at top center as well. If you would like to see them when car is assembled you need to cut the valve cover correctly so you can still get a good seal. Any honda tuner magazine you buy will have a picture of one done in it, As for the flywheel keep it clean and mark it with a white paint line.

How do i get an magneter off a 1989 honda xr 100?

Honda has a special tool for removal. One end of the tool screws into the center rim of the flywheel then a center bolt screws up against the end of the crankshaft to act as a puller. The tool is not too expensive and can be used on many models and brands of bikes. Alternate to the puller, Strike the flywheel with an outward force using a plastic hammer. Rotate the flywheel between strikes. With a little luck the flywheel will break free from the crank.

How do u remove timing chain and re-time engine (1984 xr 250 r)

If you need to remove the cylinder head, here's how. To remove the cam chain, you've got to also remove the left crankcase cover and flywheel.

First, you need to turn the engine over until the piston is at top dead center (TDC) of the compression stroke. Begin by removing the two round covers from the left side of the crankcase cover. Also remove the four tappet hole covers from the cylinder head cover. Turn the engine (in the normal direction of rotation) and watch the intake valves open - and close, then see that the exhaust valves open, then close. Now align the 'T' on the flywheel with the notch in the inspection hole. With all of the valves closed, the engine is at TDC of the compression stroke. Do not begin removal of the cylinder head cover until this is done - to avoid damage to the cover.

With the cylinder head cover removed, you will find two bolts attaching the cam chain sprocket to the camshaft. Turn the engine until you can get a 10mm socet onto the heads of the bolts and remove them. The sprocket will come loose and slide down onto the camshaft, enabling you to remove it an the camshaft.

Upon reassembly, set the cam timing by first setting the engine at TDC. Then, align the two marks on the cam sprocket with the gasket surface on the cylinder head. With the engine at TDC and the marks lined up, the cam timing is properly set.

Before calling the job done, make sure to adjust the tappet clearances to .002" on the intake and .003" on the exhaust valves.
