A few years ago a budy and I threw a Perrin crank pulley on my RS. I had tried to do it myself but was unable. My budy grabed the breaker bar, put it on the nut, and had the handle in contact with the ground. I started it real quick and then shut off the motor. This worked brilliantly. I'm thinking about ordering a new crank pulley, and was wondering if (and ya I'm sure this is a stupid question) but does the motor spin the same way? I'm sure it does but thought I'd ask the gods here what they think... Can I do the same trick, or should I be real weary of doing such things to my X?

Yep it turns the same way
you just need to make sure the engine doesn't fire up so make sure you just click the starter over

Right on, thanks. just a thought if I took the fuel line and un-hooked it, could I start it without any worries of actually starting?

If you don't already have a crank pulley, I have two in stock.

One Perrin, and one Agency Power, both in black.

One of them is being donated in the raffle. The other is for sale.

:D

Free shipping for this one only!!

You can get the crank pulley nut off w/o anything drastic. Just need TAGXT04 to come over and lean into the breaker bar. 18" breaker bar did the trick on my XS and Petty's STi to loosen the bolt.
