Pictures of what you have would help a ton. Depending on what is left you may be able to use the existing clutch on the 212, I think those crossfire kart/buggies had a gy6, and I'm not sure of shaft...

I may get criticized, and may be wrong. I've seen stuck flywheels removed with an air hammer on the shaft and a prybar behind the flywheel applying outward pressure, perhaps this method may work for...

The last grizzly I rode was a 94, they aren't worth much unless they have next to zero miles and look new with no issues. In my area one in rough aesthetic condition but running and rideable is $400...

He is right you know, my dingo is running a 6.5 clone de-governed with a 6.67:1 ratio, accelerating is no issue, and it does 40mph no sweat, if you can hang on through the rough streets. It's lacking...
