1983 VT500- flywheel bolt came loose causing the flywheel to come off. Damage seems minimal.(bolt threads on end damaged). There is a keyway in the flywheel but know signs of one on the crankshaft??

What probably happened is that the keyway sheered flush on the tapered shaft its there look a little harder the shaft is probably scuffed so you not noticing it, then take a punch a pointed on and tap it out.

Ascot VT500 VT - no power not battery

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Was the main 30 amp fuse checked/replaced? The main fuse would on the starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
