Since it has an aftermarket exhaust, you may need to rejet. That would explain why you didn't have the problem when the float was sticking and gas was overflowing.
Yes, I've seen them run a tooth off.would it run if it was a tooth off on the cam. i did just rebuild the top end so all that was disassembled.
Yeah, that's what I meant. I know it won't run right, but it will run one tooth off.sure..it will run..but it won't run right with being a tooth off..this throws everything out of spec...i've owned to many of these bikes..they are really picky !!!..lol.Yes, I've seen them run a tooth off.would it run if it was a tooth off on the cam. i did just rebuild the top end so all that was disassembled.
That's just a check for the ignition timing, you need to check the cam timing.ok so my repair manual tells me how to check timing with a light which i dont have.
The "T" mark.which mark do i use in the index hole?
No, they should be parallel to the top of the head, like in the picture below.i know the timing marks should be in a straight line up thru the center of the cylinder to the valve cover right?
The "O" points straight up. As long as both lobes on the cam are facing down when the "T" mark is lined up, it don't matter about the marks on the cam gear, anyway.there is also an "O" on the other side of the cam gear above one of the bolts that points straight up. i remember those marks now and i forgot to check those. could my valves be causing this or have somehting to do with it? checking them....use the other marks or the same one? is it ok to keep my stock jetting until i get this cured or is it gonna cause problems?
