ok thanks guys i will check around. The other question i had about a month ago I rechecked my valve lash and they were way off. when i did the valve lash it had alot of power but now I think they are off again because I have no power and starts like crap. what do you guys think could be the problem all the wheelers I have had I never had one need valve adjustment this much please help.
If your loosing power your cam and rockers may need replaced. Mine tapped like crazy and then when it started to lose power it was game over. My rockers and cam were shot. If you check them and they are both at .004 then your probably in the same boat. Also if you are in the same boat make sure you check your oil pump. Thats what caused mine to go then i put new cam and rockers in and was riding it down the road and ruined those again along with the rod bearings. So if you dont want that fun time check the oil pump before you put it back togeather.
Yeah thats factory i run .004 on both and they are a bit quieter then factory. But if you put them at .004 and .005 and when you check them they havent changed at all, your cam or rockers or both may be shot. If your noticing a power loss your probably boned. Cuz when i noticed a loss of power my cam and rockers were both shot. If your adjusted to spec and it is still tapping and if the tap gets faster as you ride thats another sign of cam and rocker damage.
Huh weird i dunno if that would make it harder to kick over? But i guess if you think about it that one would have been really pushing open the valves and reduce compression and the other ones were just loose so they were bearly causing any resistance at all. When you start it do they make any noise? Tapping at all? Cuz if there quiet i would roll with it.
