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.

+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.
