Anyone know how I remove the flywheel so I can replace a broken coil? And does anyone know where I can get a new coil? I have a 77 Batavus VA.
you need a special tool called a flywheel puller. call handybikes. they should have one. or check mopedjunkyard.com as well. replacing a broken coil might be tough ... and if the price isn't much different than a whole new stater plate ... might as well go the whole distance.
with alot of mopeds you can use a pitman arm puller or a harmonic balancer puller also (you might be able to find these at a local auto store).
If you use the harmonic balance puller it might be necessary to drill and tap holes in your flywheel.
Be really careful about what is behind your drill bit!
the right tool for the right job. use a flywheel puller for your bike. it has to be the right kind. the tool is pretty cheap and only really requires that you also have a rachet set.
I'm against drilling and tapping a flywheel since it can damage the dynamic balance of it. It can also weaken it, and you don't want a piece that can spin at 5000RPM blowing up next to your leg.
Miguel, I concur: The right tool for thr right job!
Melissa! Make sure you cover your hands and nails if you're a woman.I'm not being demeaning here,I'm just warning you that flywheel work has a way of bustin' knuckles and cuttin' you up!BYE!
