I have been working on getting my secondary off in the CVT for 2 days. Impact gun, breaker bar, I have tried everything I know of and have had 2 other guys try to help too. I cannot get this thing off. Am I missing something or did this thing just get cranked down too tight the last time someone was in there?

somebody might have put red lock tite on it,u may have to apply a little heat to it,to get it to break loose.

Using a quality name brand half inch drive or bigger impact wrench with plenty of air should do it.

i had the same problem, tried it all, even 250psi from a nitrogen tank. finally I cut off the nut with a dremel. just take your time. my nut had fused to the metal on the fan somehow, no other explanation. I spent two weeks and 10 different guys, should have used the dremel, when my snap on impact with 200psi would not crack it

1/2 or 3/4 drive braker bar with a 5' piece of pipe should do it.

Mine fused awell. I think that cutting it is what I need to do. I have to change the belt after the next trip. There is another tool called the nut splitter. Some guys here say that it woks.

Thanks for all the replies. I just had a buddy bring over another compressor and 2 more impact guns. We tried heat and a 5 foot breaker bar - NOTHING. Oh well. I might see if I can go get one of those nut busters. I am almost inclined to leave it. I dont want to break anything.

Will a nut splitter work on a nut with a flange on it? I changed my air hose to a larger one and got it to come off.

after the **** sandwich I encountered, I put anti seize on the back of the flange where it meets the fan. we will see next time, but a buddy of mine is a top mechanic with suzuki and he uses anti seize on everything so I did the same. of course I followed the torque specs.

Happened to me as well...ended up using the die-grinder w/a cut off wheel. When you get it off...you need to take the sencondary completely apart-clean it good-and regrease it...be sure to use yamalube !!

Thanks for all of the replies. I was able to finally get it off. :banana::banana:
Had to use an air chisel! I regreased everything and am putting it back together. Is it normal to have a little gap in between the nut and the secondary? (see picture) I assume it will be ok because everything is on a spline but wanted to check before I tighten it all up.

Now I just have to get my new JBS sheave on - Cant wait.
