Timing Marks Check

Post by Dane »



Hi all,
Doing the timing belts on a GL1500 SE.
Before I took the old belts off I notice the timing mark for the right cam was slightly off, and I figured it was due to a worn / stretched timing belt.
With the new (Honda) timing belts installed the mark still looks off.
Please take a look at the photos and give me your opinion if perhaps the timing is off by one tooth, or if the mark could be a little off.

Thanks.

The belts wear, but don't stretch. If that's what you had coming off, and it ran good. I'd say you're good to go. Mine actually looked the same way when I changed them.

Mine looked about the same to me when they came off and went back on. I think it would be a really noticeable difference if it was a whole tooth off.

Thanks for the feed back.
I'll button it up, and call it good to go. 8-)
