    Pulling Flywheel

    Need to pull the flywheel on my TW 200. I read on here somewhere that the rear axle is the same thread size as the flywheel. The axle threads in but how do I keep the flywheel from turning?

    Put the bike into gear.

    If you are using an impact wrench, that should provide enough reisistance to break it free.

    Before I got an impact wrench and was trying to use a breaker bar, I had problems with the rear wheel turning. I solved this problem by putting a length of 2x4 through the rear wheel spokes/swingarm to keep the wheel from turning.

    Haven’t done it on a TW, but on other bikes the impact wrench was the method that actually worked well.

    +1 on impact wrench to both remove and re-install flywheel using the rear axle bolt.

    Rather than pulling the rear axle to remove the flywheel, why not go to the hardware store and buy a bolt the same diameter and a lot shorter to do the same thing? It seems to me removing the rear axle is a lot of extra work.

    IIRC it's M16 x 1.5mm fine pitch and about 40~50mm long should do it
    And I used one of these, only £20 (about $25) eBay item no. 201229075988, to hold the flywheel.

    ...and use the impact wrench.
    You don't really need to use one, you just need a good excuse to finally buy an air compressor and start collecting some air tools.

    Air tools are nice. But I picked up a Ridgid 18 volt impact wrench. It's nice not to be tied to an air hose.
