There is a special tool that pushes the crank shaft out of the bearings as it holds the bearings in the crank looks like a big "c" clamp.they are about $150.00 or more to buy.mine cost me $125.00 ten years ago.

An interference motor come apart yes

a non interference motor means that if the timing belt breaks there will ( should not) be any bent valves
If you are pulling the motor right down and putting bearings in , NEVER use used bearings on the crank shaft to start crank shafts although looking good , when measured will measure as oval from the wear and secondly , bearings come in different sizes for ground cranks so the bearings you fit may be too small for journal and seize up during operation
it is not a case of just throwing it together with any old parts available unless you want to do it again at a cost

What might be causing a Noise and rough pedaling from main crank area of the bike?

Sounds like a bearing issue in the "bottom bracket" or the housing that holds the cranks, in other words. I would remove the crank and inspect the bearings. There are several different types of bearings. If your bike uses sealed bearings, your only option is usually to just replace them. a "caged" bearing consists of several actual ball bearings, set into a round metal cage that holds them in place. If you have caged bearings, remove them clean them thoroughly, and then re-pack them with bearing grease before reinstalling. also be sure to clean the bearing cups, or any surface that they may come into contact with. Any dirt, sand, or grit makes for a quick death for your bearings. Some bikes just use free floating ball bearings set into the bearing cups. If this is the case, smear a blob of grease into the bearing cups. This will hold the ball bearings in place while you install the rest of them. Be careful when re-inserting the crank not to knock any of the ball bearings down into the bottom bracket. From the sounds of your description, you may be missing a ball bearing or two. Check to make sure there are no large spaces between any two ball bearings. If you could fit another ball bearing into the bearing cup without crowding any of the others out, then you are missing a bearing. Re-assemble everything as it came apart. When tightening the crank into the bottom bracket, be cautious not to over tighten. The crank arm shouldn\'t have any "wiggle" from side to side, and yet should still spin freely on its bearings. I sincerely hope this helps.

I need to replace the rod and crank bearings on my kx100 and I want to know exactly what I need to take apart to get to the crank. What side of the motor do I take off to get to it?

It is a massive job you are talking about doing there. The engine must be removed, and entirely dismantled. Then the engine cases must be split to remove the crank. Not something you should attempt without a work shop manual, and lots of mechanical knowledge.
The crank bearings need to be pressed on.

How too replace connecting rod on a ttr 125l. I have a 2001 ttr 125 with a seized conn big bearing. and I would like to know the proper way of splitting the crank too replace it

The top end comes off then the left and right side covers, flywheel, clutch and shift shaft. Now a case splitter is used to split the center case halves. To replace the bearing you will need a hydraulic press to disassemble and reassemble the crank halves. If the bearing is seized you should replace the bearing, crank pin and the connecting rod. The crank must be realigned using twin dial gages. Personally, I suggest a new crank assembly be purchased from ( $241 ). I would replace the crank end bearings at the same time and also the sprocket shaft outer bearing and seal. Please rate my answer.

I assume you are using the original left and right crankcase halves. If not there is the problem. Case halves must be a matched set or this type of problem often shows up. Note the positioning pins in the diagram below. Are they both there? There is an chance the crank may be out of alignment (dropped at the factory, Yamaha parts dept., shipping center, somewhere...). Get it checked at a dealership. Please rate my answer. Thanks!

Need to split crankcase to clean out broken piston parts! Very stiff, seems very tight around main bearing. Any tips?

Just take it easy use a rubber mallet!!!!!!!! it needs to come apart SQUARE!
if you have broken the seal all the way around & it feals jammed check that you have nothing still left to remove!
DONT use pry,s [screw drivers inbetween the cases]or you will never get the two halves to seal again!

Husqvarna 357 XP Hard starting when warm.

I work for warcks county council, the husky 357xp is our main saw. We've experienced the same problem with many of our new 357's. after many hours of trying to solve the problem (including swapping carbs from old broken saws etc) i stumbled upon, by fluke i'm afraid, a problem with the ngk bpmr7a spark plugs. They seem to work fine for a short period of time (even new out of the box) then leak compression from the cylinder. We are running a esser rated bosh spark plug which seems to have eliminated the problem, (can't remember the number, sorry). We have now ordered champion plugs to replace the stock. Probably worth a try. Hope this is of some help.
