Ktm 250sx-f timing chain

Recommended Posts

First time 4 stroke owner now own 2013 ktm 250sx-f. Hour meeter hit 40hrs so i figured i would do a valve adjustment. Used a hot cams shim kit and got all the clearances to spec just not sure how to time it.

 

QUESTION

 

How do i time the cams and crank together?

First download a service manual. 

 

To to put into time, there is a bolt with hex head next to the clutch cover. Remove that bolt and you can see the crank. Turn the crank to TDC - a lot of people like to put a straw in the spark plug hole to see at its greatest height for TDC. To confirm at TDC, you can look through that bolt hole and the crank will have a notch in it. Once found, remove the washer from the hex bolt and install to lock piston and crank at TDC. I'm assuming cams are off but you will notice dots or impressions on either cam gear. Those need to align horizontally on the inside with piston at TDC. Mount timing chain and tensioner. 

 

I'd still recommend following service manual.
