I don't know the year of your ATV but you probably have electronic ignition. I assume the cam chain has not been disturbed. Based on that, just install a new woodruff key and go riding. The timing is pre set. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

How do I replace Woodruff key in engine


Take the cover off the housing that covers the flywheel. The crank shaft comes up the middle of the flywheel and has a slot in the end. The slot has the woodruff key in it. The key fits in the slot on the flywheel. When you hit something with the blades the crankshaft stops and the flywheel keeps turning. This shears off the woodruff key or makes it move out of position and then the timing becomes out of spec. The motor wont start. You need to pull the flywheel off and replace the woodruff key. They key looks like a half moon piece of metal.

Why do the Yamaha MT 110V 2 stroke - engine backfire and take no load and how do I repair it


timing is fixed by way of a woodruff key on the crank that the flywheel is bolted to. only way the timing can be altered is if the woodruff key has sheared and the flywheel has spun on he crank. You would need to remove to flywheel to check if this has happened

Crankshaft Woodruff Key Removal


You are correct, this key does drive both. While I have never tried to remove the keway with out both pulley and lower sprocket you may be able to (my gut says no but anything is worth trying once) I'd position the keyway at the 12 o'clock postion and with a good pair of needle nose pliers see if the key will roll out as you pull up and away with it. If it will not you'll of course have to remove the front of the engine and pull the timing belt, if over 60K miles on belt go ahead and replace with new.

I hope this may have assited and good luck!

No key for our kawasaki bayou 220


On the Bayou 220 you have 2 wires from the Ignition Switch. If I was you I would wire them 2 to a toogle switch or push bottom start.
