After strip down wont start-

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Just stripped down the bike and put on New rings and Chain. Clearances are 8 and 10 would this stop it starting as dont know what else it could be. Anyone any ideas if I may have missed something. Turns over but not firing no noises or Knocks.

Cheers

Gaz.

Do you have spark? Did you reconnect the vacuum hose to the petcock? What model is it?

Cheers got it started but cam chain seems to be sliping now. When I have cover off and turn wheel chain seems to be tight and then it dips and goes slack then tight again.

The chain tightens when one of the camshafts is pushing against the valve buckets, then on the closing ramp of the lobes it releases the chain tension. But don't know why a chain would slip on a toothed sprocket.
