Flywheel Magneto
Using a high flash-point solvent, clean off any oil or dirt
that may be on the crankshaft taper [A] or in the hole [B]
in the flywheel. Dry them with a clean cloth.
Fit the woodruff key [A] securely in the slot in the crank-
shaft before installing the stator plate.
Holding the flywheel steady, with the flywheel holder [A],
and tighten the flywheel nut [B].

Crankshaft Sensor Air Gap Inspection (KX65A6F
Remove the magneto cover.
Measure the crankshaft sensor air gap [A] (Clearance be-
tween the flywheel and the crankshaft sensor [B] core).
Crankshaft Sensor Air Gap
0.5 ±0.1 mm (0.020 ±0.004 in.)
If the gap is incorrect, reinstall the crankshaft sensor so
that the gap has correct clearance.
Flywheel Magneto Inspection
There are three types of magneto problems: short, open
(wire burned out), or loss in flywheel magnetism. A short
or open in one of the coil wires will result in either a low
output, or no output at all. A loss in flywheel magnetism,
which may be caused by dropping or hitting the flywheel
by leaving it near an electromagnetic field, or just by ag-
ing, will result in low output.
