    Still Need Yamaha tt500 timing help??

    looked up cam timing in the manual...set it to correct location at tdc. Plug is sparking but motor is not getting gas...the spark plug is dry after kicking many times. Took carb apart everything was clean nothing clogged. Could I have set the timing 180 degrees off?
  2. Does anybody have a manual... I need to know how to set cam timing??????

    Yamaha TT500 Timing...Need Some help.

    Pulled the head off...valves hit the piston b/c timing was off. So I need new valves and to have the head machined. But don't know if time will allow this. We'll see hopefully I get everything done in time to ride this thing. Anybody a complete head they can part with?

    Yamaha TT500 Timing...Need Some help.

    The motor's cam timing is out b/c someone, my brother I think messed with the timing b/c the thought maybe it had jumped time. My dad told me they messed with the cam timing and it never ran again. I called the local motorcyle place today and they told me where the cam dot on the cam was suppose to be at TDC. I put it back together right and the exhaust valve appears to be opening at the correct time. But looking in the exhaust port it doesn't look like it is seating all the way. Which was my fear. The valves may have been bent when they put the motor back together with the wrong timing. So tomorrow I'm going to pull the head an see if the valves are bent. It just doesn't feel like it has the compression it should. I can turn the motor over with my hand on the kick start?. I haven't even messed with the ignition timing yet...just trying to get the internal timing right and go from there. I have a manual on the way...hopefully it gets here in time to do some good. I definitely need one.

    Yamaha TT500 Timing...Need Some help.

    Nobody has manual for this bike or knows where the dot on the cam is suppose to be at tdc? Please help....this thing is just begging to run.
  8. Just stumbled across a tt500 at my parents cabin...Its in good shape but...motors timing is messed up. I need to reset it. I don't have a manual so how do I find tdc and where does the cam need to be when the piston is at tdc? I would love to get this thing running but only have to weeks till I leave...So any help would be greatly appreciated.

    03 WR450 Neutral Indicator Light Install

    I'm in the process of dual sporting my 426 but don't know if I'm going to use a neutral indicator. I do have to have a high beam indicator but still can't figure out how to make one work easily. Do you have one on your bike...if so what did you do to make it work?
  10. I'm try to do my own dual sport kit. I got everything I need for my state except a horn kit. I tried the one from four strokes only but it doesn't work well enough...Can't hear it over the exhaust. So has anybody put together their own kit for a wr426? I need a horn that will work with alternating current...b/c I don't want a battery. Any suggestions on how to do this or info on where to get one would be greatly appreciated. I've search but cant find anything.

    Will WR426 exhaust fit a WR450?

    The rear mount should be adjustable where by adjusting how far the muffler slips onto the mid pipe. What clearence issues did you have with the shock. I'm trying to sell the exhaust system to someone who has a 450 but they need to know if it will fit first. Kind of a shot in the dark with out being able to bolt it up and see.
