This is my attempt at a write up on setting cam timing if anyone has any suggestions let me know and I'll post it up here. I finally set the timing on my engine that's been sitting out of the frame so I don't have anymore excuses to not put it back together (of course until I get some frame bolts) so here it goes.
You'll need a:
10mm, 8mm, 6mm & 5mm allens
10mm, 14mm sockets (i used my cordless impact for the 10mm and a socket for the 14mm)
A manual would help TONS
I also used this guy
First you start off by taking off the six bolts that hold on the valve cover, and the valve cover.
Next you need to take off the two bolts holding on the cam chain guide.
and then take off the Cam rails.
You should then loosen you CCT up so you have as much slack in your cam chain as you can get. (I need a MCCT for this bike)
After that you can remove or adjust the cams so you can adjust the timing from the starter clutch.
You need to remove the two silver bolts (Big and small).
and line up the TOP LINE with mark on the timing inspection hole (small hole)
Once you do that you should align you cams as pictured.
and zip tie the cam chain in place, the chain should have 15 pins between the exhaust and intake cams as it shows in the picture count over starting with the pin on 2 and ending on 3.
once you have everything in place you can put the "camshaft journal holders" back on and tighten your CCT back up, when doing this make sure your ca chain doesn't move once you have everything tightened to a point cut the zip ties off and tighten ass necessary. put the cam chain guide back on and then the valve cover.
Let me know what I said wrong so I can correct it
Pretty basic but if you have some knowledge of your bike this should help you.
