Kinetic TFR flywheel WTF

So I got a kinetic USA TFR off my tweaker neighbor. The engine is seized six ways from Sunday. Trying to get the flywheel off and split the cases. I've searched and found no mention of this anywhere else. Where there should be threads to attach a flywheel puller there is what looks like a couple stacked washers, but it all seams to be one piece. Last night I started beating on the crankshaft with a hammer. The plastic fan came free. The cases came apart about a 1/4", the flywheel still seams stuck tight. Anyone encountered this before? Tricks? Tips? List it on eBay as artisan boat anchor?

The variator boss is still on there and need to come off first, and then you need to remove the variator spacer that's behind it. That will expose the threads for the puller.

It's a single speed. It's got no variator? Least I don't remember pulling a variator off, and I know there's no clutch on the rear pulley.

In either case, that polished sleeve on the crank needs to come off before your destroy the crank trying to hammer it apart.

Re: Kinetic TFR flywheel WTF

Man you have to pop this off and you will expose the threads.

Threads are under there.

With vice grips and busted knuckles, I got that to rotate back and forth last night but nothing more.

Crank is already toast.

Re: Kinetic TFR flywheel WTF

Soak it with some PB blaster or WD40....may want to come off easier.

Re: Kinetic TFR flywheel WTF

That little bit's just like a washer, it's not hard to replace if choose the nuclear option?

That crank took a beating!

I had the same issue. Took a pb soaking and lots of tapping, turning and tapping again. To find out my large crank needle bearing only had 3 needles. Explains the noise.

Nice job. There were about half a dozen ways that could have gone without destroying anything, but thumbs up

Holy shit! No wonder you had trouble....

Every, single, time I see a post about a kinetic I regret getting one new... everyone noo, they are junk!!! ...coulda bought 2 new for $800 and threw the crates in my shed for later fiddling. Woulda been worth the money now looking back

Re: Kinetic TFR flywheel WTF

Looks like it’s time for that 46$ crankshaft
