Splitting crankcase

Does anyone know of a "MacGyver" method to split the crankcase on an 09 700 XTX, or do I need the specialized tool? If tool is needed can someone tell me where to find it (don't need OEM) and what the part # is? Also right now I'm just concentrating on the left side so do I still need to remove the magneto/flywheel assembly? Looks to me like that could all stay in place until/if I need to dig into the right side. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I found a splitter on ebay. It is made by Tusk. Several versions were shown and priced anywhere from 69.00 - 300.00 plus! Rocky Mountain ATV handles the Tusk unit.

Not sure about leaving the left side intact, I'd be concerned about possible seal damage when putting it back together. I'm thinking about pulling my engine out next month, so I'll be following your posts with interest! Arctic Cat has a special tool for pulling the flywheel off with, I picked one up fairly cheap, but don't remember where! These things are fairly easy to work on once you get past the intimidation factor! LOL

Thanks Fairmont 79. I'll check out your link and see if I can get one ordered, I saw the flywheel puller online somewhere, think it was about $35 or so. I have a pretty good service manual with photos so putting it back together once I find the stripped gear shouldn't be too bad. I'll be sure to post if I run into any issues or find easier ways to do things.

Broke down and ordered the Tusk Crankcase Splitter, 69.95 versus the 179.00 dollar model! Crankshaft and bearings are ordered, and getting ready to pull the motor! Took my CD manual to Ferris State University, and they printed a copy for 7.00 dollars, plus 6 - 11 X17 wiring diagrams in color! Going to busy in October!

Well, case splitter and rotor remover tool arrived this week, and I've successfully split the case and found the offender - bevel gear. I don't know how to post a picture on here but it's ground down pretty good. When I removed it from the case the large nut that holds it in the bearing was just finger tight. Have to believe that this was the cause of the problem, shaft was loose and allowed the gear to run out and get all chewed up. All other components inside the engine look just fine. Note to the wise, there is a "hidden" case bolt top right side and it's recessed in a hole so it's hard to see - one of those long black bolts with the T30 star drive head. Started pulling and it was coming too hard, that's when I found the bolt.
