08 Royal Enfield 500
« on: April 22, 2013, 10:33:31 PM »
Trying to replace the starter gear on the bike. Took the case cover off (forgive me if I use the wrong terms). I believe it's the primary chain (that wraps around the alternator? and clutch). We need to get the sprockets that are apart of the alternator off but it has a large nut holding it on and we can't figure out a way to keep the stuff from spinning on us. Any idea's on how to hold it so we can break that nut free? I can get some pics if need be.

Edit: can I assume this is a lefty loosy situation or is it reversed?

Edit2 Images:
We pulled that cover off and behind it is where the nut we need to figure out how to get off is sitting.

Update:
We managed to get it using a shirt and some wood shims to jam up the clutch sprocket enough for it to break free.

Just a quick question, what oil do I put back in on this bike? The manual didn't come with and google is not treating me nice atm.

Thanks.

Any specific weight? I read 20w-50 but they didn't mention for what year and it looked older than our 2008. Just curious what the manual suggests or if there is a more common option. I'm down in Central Texas so it gets pretty warm. Synthetic or non-synthetic?

I run 20w50 in my 2007 AVL, but I may switch up to ATF Type F next time I change it.
