So I finally got the cam timed after several attempts and rereading the sticky over and over again, at first I was using the "wrong" timing marks they looked right but the lobes were no where near those listed, then I found the right intake mark and the proper exhaust mark (only after I read the sticky again) part of my problem was I was looking straight at the exhaust cam... so... until I realized the lobe positions were listed left to right from the riders position I thought I had the cam in backwards :oops:

now on to my question, I have read how to do the tappet adjustment but what is not clear to me is when I should make the adjustment, should I have .002 clearance at its slackest point?

Adjust them for two-thousandths on the T/LT marks on compression stroke.
As with ignition timing, you need to be exactly on the mark(s).......

To clarify LT would be for the exhaust tappets (and I do both the left and right)
and T would be for the intake.
is that correct

never mind I get it now, LT for left cylinder T for right cylinder
DUH.


thanks.

don't forget to adjust the eccentric shafts the "correct" way. I missed this point - but only once!
