Its pretty simple. I dont know how much power you gain but I had my entire bottom end apart and put a new crank in and had to use the old key. All you do is take the magneto cover off, get a flywheel puller (i think its like $20) pull the fly wheel then just take like a chisle and tap the key outta the crank, i dont think you have to use any glue or anything when you put it back together just get in good and the mag should hold it in place.then just put everything backtogether. Just be carefull cause when my dad hit the puller(you screw the puller in ,left handed thread, then tighted the bar in the middle well you hit the bar in the middle after you tighten it up and it pops it out) well when he hit it it somehow bent the crank a little bit and i had to get a whole new crank. Just my 2 cents lemme know if it works.

well if your working on your 2003 i wouldnt imagine it would be all that hard just get the tool and use it how its spost to be (screwed in left handed good then tighten the bar in the middle up and hit it with at hammer) i think the only reason my dad bent my crankshaft is because the bike is 15 years old tho (great shape ill post some pics if you want me 2) and water has got in there and kinda rusted it to the crank but sh!t happens lol i think youll be fine tho just one of them freak things that coincides with my luck

Thats an 88?!?!? That thing is in great shape, keep it that way, only thing i would buy is a graphics kit, and a seat cover, then it'll look real sweet. O btw, looks like ur handlebars are a little tweeked, are they?

They are a possible chance of shearing the key, but it's well worth it, only 25 bucks and 10 for the flywheel puller!
