    A little help with timing please.

    Thanks Eddie.

    A little help with timing please.

    So I am assuming that it tightened up due to the camshafts wanting to turn in opposite directions at some point after TDC? And when you say "till you cannot wiggle the chain on the intake cam sprocket." do you mean no slack in the chain between the two sprockets?
  3. I installed an MT 434 big bore today. I am currently trying to get the cam chain tensioned with the MCCT. Every time I try turning the engine, the chain goes from moderately loose to very tight with no adjustment of the CCT. Any ideas? Is my cam chain really stretched? I started out from TDC when I installed the CCT. Will

    What is this noise? Did I do it right?

    Are those measurements in inches or mm? Cause if those are inch there may be an issue. Valve clearance is: Intake: 0.10~0.20mm (0.0039~0.0079 in) Exhaust: 0.20~0.30mm (0.0079~0.0118 in)

    Flat Tire...

    I've only put just over 1000 miles on the tires, so I think I'm gonna get a new tube and patch the tire. Thanks for the input guys. Will

    How do you know if the tire needs to be replaced?

    I was under the impression that the SM has tubes?

    Flat Tire...

    Got home from a short ride to the auto parts store and found a sheet metal screw in my rear tire. Only 1670km on the thing. Anyway, I am wondering what the procedure for this situation is. Do I repair or replace? If replace, any suggestions on a new tire, or go with the D208 again? Thanks, Will

    A Few Questions About FCR Install...

    I tried the 42 pilot and I'm still getting the off idle bog. Other than that the bike is extremely strong. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the accelerator pump?

    A Few Questions About FCR Install...

    The bike seems to run fine with 2 turns out, except it stalls if I crack it open quickly. I am pretty sure that everything is correct ( stock fuel screw with spring washer and o-ring, no air leaks that I can find ), so I am going to try a smaller pilot jet for now, and maybe Eddie will have some advice for me later. Thanks DRZnXJnWI.
