Saves you money in the long run
I’d recommend the tusk brand tools to anyone doing a bottom end job. I used the crank puller/installer, case splitter, and flywheel puller and they made my life so much easier!

Pull it, push it, just don’t hammer it
This is a must have product. Don’t beat your crank in with a hammer and trash your cases or crank. Makes life less stressful.

Make sure it will work for your engine.
This is a great product as far as durability. It needed a part to work on my kx250. I feel like I either missed the note or it wasn’t clear in the description that an adapter is needed. This product should be made in the USA. I always fell sick after buying foreign made tools.

Where was this 20+ years ago!!!
Today with tools like this rebuilding the bottom-end on a 2 stroke is so much easier. Back in the day, all of these tools were dealer (only) when I worked as a mechanic in a Kawasaki/Yamaha shop.
Putting a Crank in at home in the shop is Minutes (and it works perfectly)!!!!

Applicable usage
I bought it to use on my 2002 Yamaha YZ 85, but it doesn't have a 12mm x 1.00mm pitch adaptor nut for the Crankshaft, so I can't use it yet. I can't fault the quality and value of it though.

Mods req'd to work on KX65
I'm sure this tool is awesome for most machines, but for it to work on a KX65 I had to do a major mod. First, I had to buy the Kawasaki adapter, which was too tight. I had to use a dremel and shave about a half millimeter out of the inside diameter of it so it would fit. Second, the biggy, I had to cut that dang threads off the threaded section and weld a 1/2" steel plate in there, then weld the threads back on. The threads are not long enough be able to fit the steel bars across the cases to pull against as shown in the video by my bro, Justin. I had to lengthen the threaded piece. It won't fit squarely any other way. Very frustrating, but like I said, I'm sure it's awesome for most bikes, just not the KX65.

What tool would I need to install the left/right oil seals on the crank for a 03 cr250?
Michael B on Jul 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have used sockets (the same diameter of the seal or a little smaller, deep well if possible) and a dead blow hammer. Lightly tap into place.

Tusk Crank Puller/Installer Tool
Tusk Crankcase Splitter
Tusk Crankcase Splitter
BEST ANSWER: Hey John. I have not worked on those engines in particular but I have used these tools on many others. Before I had the splitter tool it was necessary to make a custom pulling plate for each different set of engine cases because the tapped holes for the pull rods are often not 180 degrees across from each other and the push pin must be straight on to the end of the crankshaft. Using this tool it is easy to centre the pin and then move the slotted arms to line up with two or three tapped holes in the engine case. Remember to make the puller level with the cases so that you pull evenly an the anchor rods. The crank puller/installer is easy to use. It slips over the end of the crankshaft and the threaded/tapped end is used to draw the crank toward the case. Hope this helps, Jay.

BEST ANSWER: This product came with the most commonly used sizes by maunufactureres. Able to do a variety of cranks.

Tusk Crankcase Splitter
BEST ANSWER: I could not tell you for sure. The trick to pulling the crank case is to pull it apart evenly and equally. Not knowing the width I'm just not sure. These tools will do many different crankcase. Sorry I could not help on that one. Best advise would be to call the cat dealer, or measure the distance between the bolts send them to me and I can measure the three spreader legs to see if this will work. It needs to have three points to pull equal.
Will this work on a 2001 wr426?

Will this tool work with little KTM 50 case?
Dan M on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: you may have to get creative with the adapters, i have access to a lathe so i just made the adapters that i needed that this tool doesn't come with, i could have made my own but it was cheaper and faster to get this
It says won't work for KTM 125/144/150. I have a KTM 105 sx. Will it work for that engine?
Scott I on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That I am not sure of. I have a YZ 250 and it worked great for my bike. Both my older brothers have KTMs but theirs are 300's and they haven't had to tear them apart yet. You might want to contact Tusk to get a better idea if it will work or not.
I have a 2006 Suzuki rmz 250 and I have to put my casing back together . I was wondering if I need that c-clip adapter? I have a kawasaki motor in that bike is the reason for the question
Thanks
Gary J on Nov 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You don't need the c-clip kits. I looked up your bike and it shows a nut holding on the water pump gear on the right side which means you don't need the kit. If there are threads on the right side of the crank a c-clip kits isn't needed. Certain older KX two stroke need the kit. We have a newer kx 85/100 and it doesn't need the kits.
I have a 1991 Kawasaki kx80 will the tusk installer tool work on the right side of my crankshaft?
Raymond G on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’ve used this tool to work on a few kx65’s and kx100’s, in my experience this tusk crank puller/installer does not attach to the right hand side of the crankshaft, even when trying to use the available kx adaptor kit. I would recommend using the crank case splitter to push the crank from the flywheel side first, then move the crankcase splitter to the right hand side and push the crank out of the other case half. When installing the crank back onto the case halves, install seals first, then crank bearings, the freeze your crank for a few days, pre heat oven to 250 and put case halves in the oven for about 20 mins. Pull them out and quickly set the crank into the right case first, then lower the left case half on top of the crank. At this point you can use the tusk crank puller/installer to pull the crank into the left case until seated. Then install the 4 bolts that go behind the flywheel to pull the motor together, this is only my experience but it has worked for me. Good luck.
Quick question, will this fit my 2017 KTM 500 EXC f? Have a blessed day.
Ryan W on Sep 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It is made to be universal so just order it for the bike you got it should work
