Re: please please please help the noob!!!

Taffy,
my flywheel is outside of the stator, first you remove the plastic startor cover with three bolts, then you use the special 26X1.5 flywheel puller, remove the flywheel and then the stator is bolted down to engine case with 3 bolts.
is there another tast i can run on this other than an ohm test? can i measure running voltage or anything unsure what kind of voltage out i should see, ac voltage? dc voltage? specs?

Re: please please please help the noob!!!

I just don't think the ignition timing is right?

it's a long job but try and learn about a a thing called "the dead stop" method. mark the flywheel with some tipp-ex, get a timing light on the job and adjust to suit. take your timing instructions from the doc.

Re: please please please help the noob!!!

I know i read in another post that it is possible to be one tooth off and the valves still not contact piston, is it possible for the engine to run like this?
Or are you thinking possibly just not put back together properly like cam sprocket was rotated or holes elongated or otherwise? I too feel like the timing is incorrect in one way, shape, or form. i know i read about the dead stop method but did not fully get it, ill go back through when i get more time later and can have the bike next to me, like i said in previous post the guy did have it completely apart and i did find a couple things that make me question his abilities as far as completely dissassembling and reassembling and engine, would not be surprised if something is off, i still dont know why for sure he took it all down and he still wont tell me if problem started right after or not
thanks taffy, ill keep you posted

Re: please please please help the noob!!!

I ordered a new gasket kit for the carburetor with a new needle and needle jet but it isnt goign to fix the problem,
i think i got it fixed, have to test drive later tonight to confirm, but if this wasnt the problem i am gonna take a break from working on it for a few weeks till my parts come in! i cant tak it anymore lol!

ok i had verified that the marks on the flywheel that the other guy made were correctly timeed with tdc and had taking readings with timing light and adjusted so was correct, still just felt like timing was not accurate, i should have just done this when i adjusted the valves but anyway, pulled cylinder head cover and found that the camshaft timing was one tooth off! cant beleive it ran as good as it did like that! anyways i verified ignition timing still in spec and readjusted valves, feels a little better at idle and when revved at idle doesnt cut out like it used to, guess we will find out on road test when i am done with work but i am sure it will be good to go!

thanks for the advise guys!

Re: please please please help the noob!!!

anybody have any thoughts about running an engine out of time like that? supposedly it was torn down and put back together a few years ago and has not been driven very much at all since and not driven hard enough to even know the problem was there (which i find hard to beleive due to the low rpm it started at)
can i expect other problems from this? seems to be ok now so far?

One tooth off, it should be good to go.

Re: please please please help the noob!!!

happy to report all is well after test drive, camshaft timing definatly the problem, camshaft one tooth off making the point of ignition in the cylinder closer to 15-20 degrees? maximum advance but still showing proper ignition timing with timing light, just some minor tuning and adjusting and will be good to go, does seem a bit rattly in the top end of engine, guess i will have to recheck valve adjustment asap but its all down hill from here. pulls hard, lots of top end power
thanks again guys for all the advice
special thanks to Taffy, a guy who sells stators tells me he's not convinced it was a stator....main reason i went further into engine, with the known problems with them i was about to send it out! If i ever need one i know who to call

I guess if you have enough guesses at anything you can be right once - in a blue moon! LOL!!!!
