when i adjusted my friends 99 wr400 valves i also changed his timing to yz timing. i guess i did it well cause the bike started on first kick . but i want to b sure i did it right - how do u guys count the 12 links , from where to where ? (i counted from the 12 oclock on the exhaust to the 12 oclock on the intake....

I posted a simular question, regarding the timeing. The manual says to have the TDC at the [I] with the cam lobs at say 11 oclock 1 oclock

two other manuals I look at say to align the to divits flat with the case Remember Posted Image
Remeber we talked about that.

What I found after talking to a old tuner bud of mine is this
1: Unless you establish the timing of the cams with a degree wheel follow the YZ manual
2: dont worry about the divits being out of place
3: follow the manual (YZ)

the diff is a high and low spot on the cam and the divits. I would not recomend moving the cams at all for the yz....
