Why You Need This Part: There are a handful of specialty tools for your bike, and this rotor puller is one of them. The rotor (flywheel) is connected to the end of the crankshaft on the left side of the engine. It has the ignition timing marks stamped on the surface and is the key part of the electrical charging system on the bike. If you are rebuilding the electric starter and need to service the starter clutch, this is the tool you need.

Installation Tip: Lubricate the threads of the puller with some oil or light grease before use. You will probably have to use a 1/2 drive ratchet to use the puller with enough torque. An automotive-style oil filter wrench can hold the rotor in place when using the puller. Keep an eye out for the half-round key that will drop out off the end of the crankshaft (The CB550 series of engines do not have a key half-round key).
