MS: The Yamaha website shows the CDI only on the DT360A. The schematic for the DT250A shows parts that look very much like a points and condenser, but the parts listing associated with it is not correct, so I cannot completely verify. Check it out.

Garsh, I do believe you be right...I thought the 250 & 360 were both CDI....I stand corrected.

There are flywheel pullers that you can rent at the local parts or hardware store. Basically they've got "arms" that go around the edge of the flywheel and a heavy threaded rod in the center that you wrench down onto the tip of the shaft. However, we used to pull a lot of flywheels by prying the edges with big screwdrivers and whacking the shaft with a hammer at the same time. Obviously that takes three or four hands to do...

Yes. it's called a "flywheel puller" that has reverse threads that screws into the center of the flywheel. You can buy 'em at any Yamaha shop.
