Question Flywheel with a problem

I have a 2007 DL1000 with the dreaded magnet issue. I know there are several threads that deal with and explain how to fix it. I have read those and just decided to order a new flywheel. So I am looking at the flywheel and see that it uses the same puller as my other Suzuki's (also same problem) so I went and got it, screwed it into the flywheel, and then hit it with the impact gun and it never tightened up. It just spins in the flywheel like the threads are stripped. I then tried to back it out and no luck there either. The puller is stuck in the flywheel and while it spins freely, it will not go in either direction. I have tried putting pressure on it and slowly backing it out with no luck there either. Has anyone ever tried to heat the flywheel up and pull it off? Looking for ideas.

Heat won't help. You are going to have to get your puller(?) out of there. IIRC, that is a 20mm x 1.5 pitch thread. I don't know what the threads will look like after you get your puller out, but that is the only way you are going to have success. If the threads are too buggered up to fit the proper bolt to loosen the rotor, you can weld a new nut on the end of the rotor and remove it. I have never been able to get one loose with a standard gear pulling tool with the jaws on it. Takes a bolt through the center and even then some hammer taps and cussing. Lots of cussing involved with some of them.

But, there may be an easier way. Assuming you can get your puller out, why not just fix the rotor you have now? If you have all the magnets it can be done in place. I would rather have a "fixed" rotor than a new one if I were keeping the bike. ( I would "fix" a new rotor before installing one.....). These JB Weld fixed rotors have shown no problems and some have been in place several years and thousands of mile.

If I can get the puller out I may just do that. The bolt type puller was the correct size and I have never had a bolt or anything that you could turn easily by hand that you couldn't get out.

Sounds like a job for one of those "slide hammer" dent / bearing pullers. My local NAPA has one for rent / borrowing.

I think a "hammer puller" set from Harbor Freight is about $30.

Anyone have a flywheel magnet for an 06 DL1000? Some other years will work! Hit me up.
