    2018 500 exc-f Timing Jumped

    me too , but the valves and piston share the same space in the combustion chamber (interference fit) so if it slips then the valves would be bent and there wouldn't be any compression. easy to check doesn't take a dealer remove a spark plug. lets see what the "dealer " says. only had luck with one or two of them in my life.

    Plated Bike

    I ride the 300s and love them same as you , unfortunately the only way to match the power is with a 450-500 exc. when I first purchased my 17-500 it was a turd and could never keep up with the 300 in the tough stuff. now with all the right mods a 500 is as good and at times better than my 300 and it gets ridden the most. it seems that I will be selling my 300 soon as it collects dust.

    No kickstarters on the F models...ugh.

    whats a kickstarter ? we use them on HVAC systems to give a boost (capacitor) during spool up. on a Motorcycle its a longish lever to rotate the engine by foot. eek who the hell wants that ? my rule is to replace battery every 3 years no matter how many times its used . LiFe chemistry changes all the time so you want the latest and greatest which in turn will help you forget that lever to rotate the engine as in early 20th century
