1985 XV700 Virago

PostAuthor: cyclebum » Sat Sep 13, 2008 3:02 pm

Having trouble getting flywheel timing marks to line up with rear cylinder gear timing marks. Feels like valve is hitting piston. Bike ran great before bike shop pulled my flywheel and turned crank without gear attached. Messed up timing. Fiqured I better try to fix rather than let them screw it up anymore. Any suggestions on timing marks?

the cylinders and heads are the same it's the camshafts that are different...#1 camshaft goes in the rear cylinder head
if you're asking for help please include the year and model of the bike in your signature
then turn your signature on
