A little help...

Recommended Posts

I pulled the head off my XR250, a 2001 model. The valve guides needed some attention and the intake tracts were cleaned up some. Anyway I have buttoned everything back up but am having trouble getting the top Headcover/mount lined up and the bolts aren't fitting. What have I done wrong? Do I need to loosen the rest of the motor mounts to get the engine to move around in the frame? Thanks for any and all help.

did you by chance reverse the mounting plates?

the engine does notneed to budge , it has to be something real simple

I've tried the plates both directions... I'm stumped. I didn't use a headcover gasket... I've always had very good luck with GM gasket maker (#1052943). I've used it on all different types of covers on all different types of bikes and am wondering if this could cause the cover/mount to not line up correctly.?

Thanks

Raymond
