welcome mate to UHE!

unlucky start by the sound of it. 95% of problems can be found in the head. suggest that you pull the rocker inspection covers off and start it and listen for noises. check that you haven't lost a tappet nut or that a cam bearing hasn't collapsed (by trying to wiggle the cam and see if its loose).

pull the cam chain tensioner and see if there is any travel left. there is just sooo much we could tell you of. please go fill your head with stuff out of the doc. left of screen.

Re: Newbie needs help thanks.

sod it ive just checked the cams and chain tensioner, all cams ect are fine, but the chain tensioner i pulled out and let it extend fully the replaced and it pushes on the chain a little but it does not push it back any notches so i think maybe the tensioner or chain i needs replacing, also could this have caused the chain to jump a tooth if so how do i set the timing back correctly thanks guys.

in the doc fella

get the ignition mark in line with the top screw hole and the cam lobes should be absolutely symetrical.

Hi mate could do with a little bit more help the doc didnt help me a lot, ive checked the timing with the cam lobes at 11 and 1 oclock, and the two engraved lines for the timing, the first line was slightly before the the white marking line and the secong engraved line was further away to the left, this is with the cam lobes at the correct angle. has the chain jump a tooth thanks james.

you're not listening son!

you need the right of the two IGNITION timing marks in line with the two screw holes. then check. put the tensioner in as well or stick a little rod in the back to give it some tension if you like.

and never insult the doc.

"you're on thin ice my pedigree chum!"

PS name the film and I might even help you some more....

Re: Newbie needs help thanks.

is the film snatch, i wasnt insulting the doc i just need things in really plain english or pictures sometimes not the best person for understanding written instructions.

i put the bits in i bought off you good replacement blade by the way fits realy snug but still knocking, but where are these screw holes that need lining up with the right ignition mark. sorry about all this but i am really stuck, the bike does kick over first or second time everytime, the knocking is not there at first when cold but as soon as i give it a few revs it comes back.
