Amazing post. I'm just about to attempt my bottom end after something in there locked up shortly after burying it in a swamp. This is exactly what I've been looking for. Thanks !

Just a quick question.. Did you use an impact for the flywheel nut, and was it threaded on normally, or opposite like the crank nut? (Since it is on the other end of the crank)

Flywheel nut is NOT reverse thread (turn counter clockwise to loosen). I use a chain vice grip to hold the flywheel in place and then a breaker bar to break the nut loose. After that you will need the flywheel puller to get the flywheel off.

Is using an impact generally frowned upon? I've been using that exclusively, along with the puller. Don't even need a backup wrench when popping the flywheel.

I use an impact. Quick and easy.

I use an impact to remove nuts/bolts. Not for installing them. I cracked an expensive clutch basket a while back using an impact to install.

Yeah. You can't be trigger happy.
Once the socket stops, let off the trigger.

So, as stated earlier, I am in the process of replacing some crank bearings on my 2007 EC200 Hobby. I want to be a little pro-active and order the parts while waiting on a flywheel puller. Other than the bearings, seals and gaskets, what else should I order? Will it be necessary to replace the locking washer/tab for the clutch basket or can I be re-used?

You can re-use the retaining washer on the clutch basket. I used one of the tabs that had not been folded over previously.

New top end?
