Hello. I'm trying to clean the bendix of a 2007 LXV 150 with 650 miles but I cannot get the outer half of the pulley to come off. It's as if it's bonded to the inner half or spindle. Has anyone ever come across this issue? If so, what was done to get it to break free? Thanks for any help!

You need a cheap "gear puller" which has a central threaded stem that presses down on the center shaft, while two or three arms grab the outer area of the pulley. Cranking down on the stem pries the pulley off of the splined shaft.

About $10 at Harbor Freight. Maybe $20 for a set of three different sizes? Or borrow one.

sometimes you can gently tap it downward on each side and it will break loose, or wiggle it with your hands.

Judicious use of a rubber hammer around the circumference will help it come off - together with some penetrating oil.

Thanks everyone! With a quite a bit more elbow grease I was able to break it free. The two tutorial videos I saw showed the pulley coming off with ease so initially I didn't want to be too rough with it.
