|Missing Link||That looks real puurdee...|

|Junkie||Yeah, 110C being enough to fully loosen them says that they picked the wrong epoxy. That's a reasonable oil temp to run.|

I’ve prepped the flywheel, two magnets were still attached so I bought a butane burner and heated up the flywheel. With an infrared thermometer I measured the temperature of the magnet whilst heating the flywheel. With a pick I was able to break the bond after applying heat for a short amount of time. I was shocked at what temperature this happened: 110 degrees Celsius!
I’ve removed all the residual epoxy of the magnets, they are clean as a whistle. Using 80 grit sandpaper has left minor scratches on the back surface ensuring great bond of the JB weld.
I’ve also sanded the inside of the flywheel: with new 60 grit sandpaper. I’ve not sanded in a circular direction: exactly the opposite. The scratches are perpendicular to the forces exposed to the magnets.
I’ll keep you all posted with the progress.

|realshelby||The only way to get magnets for these rotors is to salvage them from other rotors. Not available new from any source.|

Where can i find magnets for my sv1000?
it's so hard to find them... my flywheel shell it's ok but no one sells only magnets...
suzuki parts are impossible to contact only for this kind of replacement!

|realshelby||That is one of the nicest jobs of JB Weld I have seen!|

|twag4||I had no problems with jb weld on mine. I used carburetor cleaner to keep the unset jb weld clean while it was still tacky. I used my finger to shape the trough in between the magnets. The magnets did not cause any heaping or mounding up for me.|

|Roeland||Anyone having 1 spare magnet lying around or has got a suggestion to fix this issue? Cheers|

|oldbaldsob||Roeland, I think you can get a pretty good idea of where the magnets go by looking at the pics of my rotors. It looks like the gaps between the magnets are kind of offset between each of the rotor bolts.|
