81 XR500R needs help

Recommended Posts

My poor bike! I was about to take off for a day of trail riding, I kicked it over and something was not right... it felt like something had stripped out as I kicked it over... then it would catch again and turn over a few times. I finally got it started, but it sounded like the timing was off. I left it at that. Friday night, a year after, I pulled (dropped) the motor and took the valve cover off. The cam chain is loose which tells me something is wrong with the lower cam gear. I'm not too confident about pulling the right side cover off. Any suggestions will help... Thanks! :)
