Alternator Rotor Removal.

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by slideways, Jan 27, 2013.

  1. Does anyone have any tricks to remove a rotor from a crankshaft.

    I'm replacing the crankshaft of my track bike and reusing the rotor. They are press fit on by a single bolt in the middle that is torqued to 120Nm.

    I've got the bolt off no problem, however getting the rotor off looks pretty tough.

    Obviously Triumph have a tool for it, but has anyone got any tricks I might be able to try, that will not damage the rotor ?

    Tomz is a public holiday so I'd like to get it off.... otherwise I'll have to wait till next Saturday to take it down to the shop :( (where they will prob charge me $50 for 2 mins of work)
  2. Buy the correct pulling tool or pay the shop to do it. Do not try any shortcuts. Have seen too many broken & damaged rotors, stators, cases & cranks from people trying to do it with screwdrivers, tyre levers etc. It's just not worth the risk.
