I have a general 5 star. The woodruff key got sheared. I tried buying some similar sized ones at Ace hardware and grinding them down, but none of them will fit right. The socket it fits into got a little screwed up when it sheared.
Now, I can put the flywheel on in the right spot and tighten the bolt with my electric impact wrench, and it runs fine.
However after riding it a while, and then shutting it off, it will not start again. I have to pull the flywheel and reset the position and tighten the bolt again.
My question: What metal should the flywheel bolt be made out of? When i bought this it did not come with one, and I just bought a steel one at ace hardware. It fits fine, but I am wondering if perhaps it is too soft and without the woodruff key it gets out of alignment every time I ride it?
Should it be brass or something harder?
