Hey ,I am trying to take the cvt off my 2007 650 .I want to anyone who has done this before if it would be fine if I used heat on primery pully bolt to free up the lock-tight ? I don't want to mess up any sealed bearings inside.

It will take a lot of heat to get down to the threads 8 inches deep. Most of the heat will wick into the adapter first. Not a good idea.

A good impact should rattle it free. I used a 12 inch long extension with a 15mm socket and my NAPA hand impact.

Grind some flats on the correct size socket to hold the outer nut think it is 32mm but could be wrong. Dave J confirm please 🙏
Hold this in place with a pipe wrench. Pass the extension bar 6" long through it and add a correct size socket for the pp bolt.
Hold the pipe wrench and undo the pp bolt. Most of us whom have done cvt's use this method. Dave J may even have photos.

But the Locktite, if used, from the factory should NOT be Red. Blue is what I'd recommend.

If red was used, you will not get 500F Degrees all the way down that 8 inch long bolt as the heat will still wick into the Primary Adapter and into the flywheel inside the engine. You'd need to cut the bolt head off and pull the CVT out to put the heat right on the bolt near the threads.

This is what that setup will look like. I used it the first time I pulled the CVT on my 07. The last couple of time I have pulled one I have just used an impact wrench. A lot quicker. I still use this setup to torque the bolt when I reassemble.
