Default Case splitting


I need to replace my crank bearings but the only problem is I don't have a case splitter . Does anybody know any other way to split it.
This is on my 1993 kawasaki kx 80 big wheel

It CAN be done, although I wouldn't recommend trying if you are inexperienced. I must admit, I've split my fair share of cases without a case splitter, but don't want to tell you how, since it's pretty easy to damage them if you're not cautious. It's especially important when splitting cases which don't use a gasket, which I think yours would be. The cases will be basically "glued" together and the screwdriver/prybar method is that much more of a risk. OOPS, did I say that out loud?

A harmonic balancer puller for automotive use will work but you need to turn on brain before using it.
