Can someone please provide me the Ninja 500r Torq settings for 1) the 3 Starter Clutch Bolts that connect to the flywheel, 2) the 2 Chain Guide bolts, 3) the center Flywheel bolt, and 4) the bolts that attach the Flywheel cover to the engine. The Clymer manual doesn't specify all the Torq settings. Thanks!I have always soaked the clutch plate in a wet clutch set up prior to assembly. Use motorcycle oil.
absolutely not no way, if the flywheel is not sliding on (it's not in line) all it will do is push the woodruff key out of position. both the crankshaft and the inside of the flywheel are tapered so much wider on the inside if that bit isn't sliding on.Should I use a rubber mallet to get it in. Or, a hammer on a block of wood on the end of the flywheel. Hate to damage the flywheel doing something not recommended. Thanks!
OK, Got the flywheel with the attached starter clutch back on the bike. By rotating the flywheel in a clockwise direction until the woodruff key aligned was the secret.absolutely not no way, if the flywheel is not sliding on (it's not in line) all it will do is push the woodruff key out of position. both the crankshaft and the inside of the flywheel are tapered so much wider on the inside if that bit isn't sliding on.
try making sure the woodruff key is moving in it's seat and point it down slightly at the front. it helps if the keyway is pointing up. do not use force.
Ninja all back together and running fine. Starts every time and no leaks. Went for a very nice 30min country ride yesterday. Looking forward to many more rides this fall.you got the flywheel on good job, as for the outer case how you fit it is up to you. providing the gasket surfaces are clean paper gaskets don't need RTV. however you can put it on one side or both if you want it's your bike.
you can even delete the gasket altogether and just use RTV everyone has their own way. dowels don't care where they fit if it's more convenient to put them on the engine fine do that.
don't forget once you offer the case up to the engine the magnets will grab the stator so be prepared for that.
Yeah forreal. I see FOG DUC you and some others I can't think of off the top of my head constantly responding and it's nice to have that outlet with some like minded people. I dont really mess with people any more. Ive been sober for almost 8 years now and this bike and my guns have been the only 2 hobbies I've really jumped into full force but neither topic is something I have been able to fully discuss in or out of the house. Lol. The ol lady just doesn't care about bike specs as long as we can go somewhere when we're able...and my 8 year just likes seeing parts come in and wants them on immediately. So short story...its been great being able to hop on and read peoples stories and relate or pick up ideas or get suggestions. The vast knowledge everyone inputs is astonishing at the least.yeah the forum has been going a long time and hopefully will continue while ever these bikes are on the road.
however one must never forget that those of us who now try to help keep these bikes going only do so by standing on the shoulders of those who went before, without who this forum would not exist.
they should never be forgotten for their efforts of the past, many of us would not be here if it was not for them doing great work in the first place.
