i see this asked a lot , yet its one of the most easy jobs to do , its just one nut , but you do need a special tool but this tool is only a way of applying force to the flyweel to pull it of the crank .

some people locktite the flyweel nut and  flywheel on too,ive come across this many times and it is
frustrating and can take a lot of force to remove , why they do this i dont know , ive had a few cagiva mitos shred the woodruff key area and shear the woodruff key itself causing bad running through
ignition timing moving , maybe this is why they load them up with loctite , i dont just fit a new wood ruff key if needed and torque nut to require specs

you will need this flywheel removal tool you can get them off ebay uk for about £20 you can buy cheaper universal ones as well.

i have both but prefer to use a specific tool for each bike i work on if possible .

first remove side cover , make sure this is fully intact , ive had a lot of mitos in and these were split or had large chunks out , lets water in (not good for electrics) and make sure you undo all of the covers bolts , dont snap one off like i usually see .

                                                remove starter bendix and starter ring

                                                undo flywheel nut at this point as well
                                                 make sure cranks is locked into postition while
                                                 to avoid movement and damage while you apply
                                                 pressure with you socket wrench .
                                             set your puller up with correct bolts and make sure
                                              puller is set up as instructions suggest and its stable
                                              solid on the crank .

                                          it should pop off easy unless it has been loctited into postition
                                          in which case it might take a fair bit of force .
                                          thats it , its a simple job if you have to go further
                                          and remove the stator make sure you mark the timing
                                          with a scribe or with white tipex or similar so you
                                          can retime you engine easily on refitting

refitting , just do the reverse , make sure timing marks are not cleaned off and refit aligned , as long as woodruff key is fitted well and everything goes back ok its should be no problems whatsoever .

also a common one is fitting the flywheel without the woodruff key or it falls out 
just as you fit it , or a sheared woodruff key or woodruff key area which fails to 
lock flywheel in place .
