Question about timing

Post by Barracuda3077 » Tue Apr 10, 2018 12:11 am



Hello fellow wingers! I changed it the timing belts last weekend and found out that the left side was a tooth off. My question is, should I go and re-adjust the valve clearances along with a carb sync?

On another note, I've upgraded the main fuse to a blade style fuse, the dog bone fuse was almost cracked through on one side, took care of the "Yellow wires", put new rubber on, serviced the final drive, replaced the clutch cable, and serviced the front forks. I've included photos of some projects. I've never have workedon a bike before, but with the "How to" section the projects are a piece of cake!

Being a tooth off won't affect the valve clearance but might have some effect on the synch.

Thanks for responding! I think that I'm going to check the valves and then synch the carbs.

I think my next project on the bike before the weather turns nice, is to upgrade the fuse block to blade style fuses. I'll keep posting updates!
