They don't say that in the FSM; another example of the FSM being better than one of these third party manuals.

Factory service manual. By far the best (as this example proves).

Hello,

Turbota wrote one important sentence.

Once all cams are removed, DO NOT rotate the engine. This will make it much easier to install the new cams in there proper position.


Here I made a mistake. My cams was removed and I had move the bike in my garage. Of course, I forgot 5th gear and my engine rotated

Can you please advise me how I can install the cams properly now?

Thanks a lot for every advice

Mark

Just line up the timing mark on the pinion gear, to where it is pointed directly at the center of the #2 bushing.

It doesn't make it much more difficult. Just rotate the engine until the mark on the pinion gear is pointing to the centre of the bush for the #2 cam (edit: as in Rico's photo above - he beat me to it!), then install the #2 cam to check the mark on it aligns with the mark on the pinion gear (remove the cam and rotate the engine slightly if necessary to align).

Now remove the #2 cam.

Fit the #1 and #3 cams and align the marks on them with the centre of the #2 cam bush. Hold them in place while you reinstall the #2 cam. Check that all marks on cams 1-3 and the pinion gear align. Slide the #2 cam out slightly if necessary to adjust the alignment of cams 1 and 3.

Fit cam #4, aligning the mark with the mark on cam #3.

While mine did not rotate when installing, just 1/2 my cams came out with the cover. So I just rotated and aligned up no problem.

My cams came out when I removed the cover and I did as Rico described above and everything lined up just right.
