Default help with new flywheel

how hard should you bolt the flywheel on?

for some reason (new flywheel, taper cone), I cannot get the flywheel even all the way around. It still has a bigger gap then normal between the front bearing and flywheel. Should i put it on harder? I mean, i am using a 11mm deep socket and i am puting it on TIGHT. I don't want to break the crank and or rear bearing.

it is getting more even the more i tighten it, but am scrared to tighten it more until i ask some of you.

Should i torque it up or what?

Is a new flywheel supposed to be this hard? I normally use my mugen box wrench until it striped. this is my thrird new flywheel, i don't think it was this hard before.

Help please?


Btw, mugen flywheel, ninja motor.

man this is going to be hard to take off.

something isnt right, i mean i tighten my flywheel nut as tight as i can get it but if your tighten the nut to make the flywheel sit flush i would think something is wrong. check the collet. maybe someone with a mugen can chime if something special needs to be done

well technically it is not as tight as i can get it. I took it off and when i put it back on i paid close attention to get it on straight. It is just about perfectly flush now (at least so close i really can't tell)

I think the taper cone needs to break in. Think i just might use an old one.

dont use the old one, since u have a new one use it, you dont want your flywheel slipping on that collet. just inspect it, make sure the collet looks good, flywheel looks good. if everything is good tighten it up

Be sure to use the cone that belongs to the flywheel, not the one that came with the engine.
