2013 350 exc valve trouble

Recommended Posts

hey all,im trying to put my bike back together after changing the valve shims and im stuck at trying to turn the camshaft to TDC,i accidentally loosened my front sprocket nut and even when i tighten it to the suggested torque(44 ft lbs) then try to rotate the crank it wont wont rotate,i just end up re loosening the nut.

 

Ive unlocked the camshaft by putting in the cam shaft locking nut with the copper washer.

What am i doing wrong...?any help would be great,im supposed to go riding tomorrow and kinda short on time.

Tighten your sprocket bolt, put it in 6th gear and get your hands on the back wheel and rotate it.

Ye thats a good idea but what i ended up doing was turning the crank from the magneto side,pooped off the black cap and went at it.I solved all my issues but ended up not riding cause i damaged my spark plug boot and the plug would start to arc as the engine heated up.I appreciate the replies and help tho.ill try the 6th gear trick this week.
