    Okay quick update and questions. I have the manual a digital version. Ill just post pictures quick. How do I check cam timing marks?

    Yeah, I've been thinking and originally going to run either drag or motocross bars for that reason and not to be too hunched over. Ill probably end up rasing the forks up enough to fit either one Sent from my LG-K425 using DO THE TON mobile app

    Well I'm nervous now..I believe this is the timing chain tensioner? Which is not good (this was a spare bike for my uncle) but the bolts are twisted in maybe 2 turns and its just loose flopping around if I touch it. From what ive read it has to be tdc before you adjust anything so it doesnt...

    Did a quick drain od the tank and was happy to know that it was just a tad brown without chunks and this was how the petcock looked which from sitting for 7 plus years I will take that! I just hope when I open up the carbs they are clean. The air filter looks almost brand new knock on wood so...

    Thank you I haven't joined that yet, I will be keeping the rear stock at the moment. I heard/read that the carbs are one of the main issues but if you get them cleaned snd in good order I was told these bikes run forever and are super reliable. This bike weighs a ton I do plan on scrapping a...
