Hey turbota, Nice job there . Again your pictures are awesome. Kinda makes my camera look like a kids toy . You did forget one hose though. You mentioned the hose on the right side of the tank but you forgot the petcock vaccuum hose. Don't want to see anyone try to yank off their tank and forget that one. Granted removing the seat, tank and coil do make it easier, it can be done without doing so. I did have the benefit of a lift though.

Where's the pic of the cams? I wanted to see the lobes man, the lobes.

Well, I wanted to include a couple more pics, but when I tried to add them to my post, it said I had already reached the size limit for 1 post. I guess that keeps people from posting way to many pictures in 1 post ... So, I can't add anymore to this How-To.

Barry ... Your right, I forgot the vacuum hose from the petcock to the carb.

Well, the bike is finished! ... Well, not exactly ... Got really to fire it up and realized that I installed the throttle cables backwards.
Now you roll on throttle by turning the grip forwards!

I gave up ... I will fix it tommorow and then attempt an engine start!

Oh Well ....

BTW, you don't have to remove the carb (or the throttle cables) for this cam change. In fact, I never mentioned it in the How-To ... I removed mine because I did a jet change while I had evertything apart.

Great job! I wish I could take advantage of it, but when I bought my Sporty, I promised myself not to tear into the motor like I did with my BT. (But my warranty is up in another year, and promises are made to be broken!)

Turbota,


A very fine set of instructions. I've always done these things by a seat of the pants, farmer on-the-spot repair procedure. Having instructions like these will surely aid anyone so inclined to do the work themselves.
