The best way is to use a flywheel puller...but, you can also take a pair of channellock pliersand firmly hold the flywheel, then take something softer than the crankshaft and hit the end of the flywheel, a good hit and it'll come right off.

Just give it a tap with a small hammer or a plastic tipped mallet at the back of the flywheel while resting the tip of the crankshaft against a wooden block (it always works) or use a Flywheel puller

I use a flywheel puller. I use one that I bought from an automotive parts store ($$$). JP and other companies make one that looks like this:

You can also get a faucet handle puller from the hardware store that works pretty good, little cheaper....

I've been using a battery terminal puller like the one shown in the picture. You can get these for ~ $5.00 USD at auto part stores.

The easiest way is the what Team kamikase said. If you go that way, make sure to rotate it, dont hit it always on the same spot, rotate 120 degrees and hit, rotate and hit etc... It ussually comes out with a few hits.

I once saw a guy walk up to a wooden driver's stand, engine in hand. He grasp the cooling head with the end of the crankshaft pointing upward and proceeded to strike the flywheel against the driver's stand like a hammer. I thought, "OMG! What is that guy doing!!!??" After about 3 hits, the flywheel came off.

This is just a funny story. I do not recommend that you remove the flywheel this way!
