Anyone in SF Bay Area have access to a machine shop?

I need to get the flywheel off the crankshaft, and the puller thread is stripped

Anyone one knows the best technique to get the flywheel off? I don't mind trashing the flywheel but i want to save the crankshaft and the crankcase.

I started a discussion on the Facebook page "Kawasaki KLR 650 Owners" (sorry, it does not let me put a link here).

that's pretty far from SF - near San Diego.

i think i can find a machine shop in the SF Bay Area that can help me. If anyone knows a machine shop in the bay area or has access to one, let me know!

Depends how you look at it. If I had a KLR expert who happens to also be a machinist within 500 miles of me I know where I would be going.

I agree, it's a long way to go and you may find someone local but you have to first determine if they can help you before they screw something up. Have you tried a Kawasaki dealership?

Just call and ask to borrow the super puller. You don't have to go to Sandy Eggo.

It would be a lot cheaper to pay for two-way shipping than to have one made, which is a block of metal that bolts onto rotor at the six points where the Allen head screws are and has the appropriate thread in the middle for the puller.

The worst he can do is say 'No'.

You could try Werkstatt in the mission.. They've done a lot of KLR work and one of the Mech's owns one so the should be able to get you squared away.

Let me know if you need to tow it there. I'm in SF and might be able to help.
