When you remove the dizzy cap you'll see a 10mm (haven't looked for a good while) bolt. Undo this and it should pull straight out.

i know there is 11mm bolt to undo and then i can take the dizzy out, then i can see inside the gear drive, i know it's connected to the oil pump, so when i try to pull it out, it wont go out like it's stuck.

Get a large flat head screwdriver. Or a pair of needle nose pliers.

Twist the dizzy gear clockwise. It will come up and away from the body.

you need to turn the actual drive-gear CLOCKWISE to remove it from the teeth in the cam, once its free you can wiggle it out with pliers

I had trouble removing it recently, but thanks to advice from james5 I got it out - you may need to use a bit of force to free it from the cam as I found out  :D
