I would say so...that and boulder hopping. :shock: Same for the auto crutch...IMO. :lol:

I've just used a serpentine belt. Just go to a wreck'n yard and you'll get an old one for free. Wrap it around the FW, cut it a couple inches longer then pinch the ends with a Vise Grips. When the Vise Grips roll they'll self tighten on the flywheel.
The flywheel nut will come off with no problem with an impact wrench, rent a elect. one if you have too to save yourself the headache.
When using the FW puller take your time. Small turns then tap the FW with a wood'n mallet, always seems the slower you go the quicker it'll come off.
IT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO HAVE A "GOOD" TORQUE WRENCH FOR PUT'N THINGS BACK TOGETHER.
Before you do anything though, clean that bike and get a manual!

I don't know what rickystators coil is rated.

I sure wouldn't give mine up! Downhill it's a big help. No longer does a touch of brake-steer and not quite enough clutch stall the bike.

The 'relight' on stalls IS cool, too. Kind'a surprises you the first time..cuz' you KNOW it was dead...but then it started again!!

It's of much more use in up/down tight single-track stuff than it would be in more open riding.

Mr. Steahly is one heckuva nice guy. Local (to me), too!
