Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
I'm trying to replace the crank in a 1996 kx60, but I can't seem to figure out how to get the magneto? off the bike. Have all of the bolts out of the left side, have the nut off the magneto and have a gear puller on it, but it won't budge. Is there a trick to getting this off? Is there some sort of lock washer or something in there?
The engine is off the bike and on the bench. Once I get that off, I presume that I should be able to tap the casing with a rubber mallet to get it to split.
Appreciate any suggestions.

I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.

it could start without oil..... but the amount of damage you would likely do to it makes it very unwise. if all the oil leaked out there was oil in it when it was started before. if i'm not mistaken that case is aluminum. if you can find someone that does tig welding (i think it's tig for aluminum).... they could probably weld that crack without taking the motor apart..... just a thought.
please take a moment to rate this solution.. thanks

highley doubtful on exaust leak causing problem first make sure your battery is up to the task do a load test if that looks good do a draw test on the starter if not there it starts to get ugly that motor came with a torrington bearing on the sprocketshaft as they wear they develop crankshaft runout not a real big issue till your running straight gears on the camshafts which only tolerates .001 runout you could be binding there
