DO NOT use a 3 jaw puller on the alternator unless you want to warp it. The bolt type puller is the only recommended way to remove the flywheel without damaging anything. A simple hammer will do for impacting the end of the puller with one or 2 sharp raps (not a heavy blow, a sharp rap. remember you are hammering the crankshaft bearings)

Duckster is saying use a purpose built bolt which you can find on line or get at the Honda dealer. Sometimes the Canadians don't speak good English. I blame it on the French.

my brother ended up making a bolt puller ....took a little yankee ingenuity and some welding and a nut and some threaded rod. Worked like a charm. had it off in about 15 minutes. Had the whole thing done in about 1/2 an hour or so.

No! use the 16mm x 1.5 bolt as recommended in the service manual with an impact wrench. I bought my bolt from cheapcycleparts.com Do not use a jaw puller!

I got the $7 bolt from Bike Bandit specifically made for removing the flywheel.
I used a strap wrench to keep the flywheel still. I got that at my local auto parts store.
The recommendation is to put a bit of oil on the end of the bolt.
It took a bit of effort, but the flywheel came lose without any damage to anything.

I didn't use the wrench in the picture. I used a regular wrench and extended the handle with a pipe to get a little extra leverage.

I'm thinking about buying one of the Motion Pro Magneto Flywheel pullers, as I've been seeing that thats the best way to do it.

I have a 1982 Cm250c

This is the correct size right?

If I remember correctly, that will work, "left hand" is just a misprint/snafu.

So did you hit the end of the bolt with a hammer after snugging it or did you just torque the heck out of it until something let go?
