300 ex timing

what is the easiest way to check the timing on a 2006 300ex. just put a stage 2 web cam in it starts up and stays running but when you hit the throttle it stahls out.

Take the valve cover off and take the timing plugs out. Use a 17mm socket and turn the flywheel counter clockwise til you find a sideways T followed by a straight up and down line. You want that line to be lined up with the notch in the timing hole. Once that is all lined up, go to the other side of the quad and look at your camshaft sprocket. Both lines on the sprocket should be parralel to the head. The lobes should be pointing down.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

You need to line the notch up with the line with the "T" next to it

X2, line it up with the line right beside the "T". The two marks that are side by side are used to check the ignition timing, not the cam timing.

And make sure there is play in the valves when you have the flywheel on the "T" so you know it is TDC

My 400ex is the same way. Just try moving the chain one link in each direction and if that makes it WAY off then go back to the original position. Sometimes it doesn't line up just perfect.

X2, sometimes the two lines won't line up perfectly with the edge of the head, but they should be close. The more the timing chain is stretched, the more the lines will be off.
