I removed the rotor bolt from the crankshaft with a 250 ft-lb air impact gun. Came off nice and easy without having to prevent flywheel rotation.
How the heck do I reinstall this thing??
1.) Reuse bolt or buy new? (reading around from KLR 650 forums, it seems like a mix of people reusing them)
2.) I´ve been googling for a decent amount of time at this point and even talked to the kawi dealer service dept, neither were able to tell me what torque specs are required here...?? All I´ve seen is 130 ft lbs for KLR 650.
3.) Ok, so lets say I now know answers to 1 and 2... if I need somewhere around 130 ft lbs, how do I properly prevent the engine from rotating clockwise (reverse). Maybe a rubber strap wrench? I quote from the kawi dealer service dept rep, "Yeah, I can´t find torque specs, but if you´re asking how I´d do it? I´d just rattle gun (impact) it.¨ I asked him how comfortable he was using 250 ft lbs on an unknown torque spec and he said just don´t hold it very long.
Any help? I couldn´t comfortably do this without you guys, thanks!
