Crankshaft Nut Removal
« on: June 18, 2013, 05:33:35 PM »
My inner primary cover decided to break today.  I guess I should be happy it decided to break at my partners shop with all the tools.  Anyways, I've gotten everything removed except for the crankshaft nut and sprocket.  How do I go about removing it?  Thanks.

Thanks!  You're the best!  Seriously, you always save the day when I'm in a bind with my bike.  I really appreciate all your help and advice.  BTW  I was looking at Hitchcocks for replacement covers and the only 1 they had listed had broke in the same spot and had been welded.  Is this common on these bikes?  Also can a guy weld this up with any welder with aluminum wire?  Thanks as always.  :)
