First off, make sure the piston is at top dead center by removing the two flat head plugs on the ignition cover and turning it with a socket till the I appears in the middle of the top hole. It looks more like a l then a I, and it is sorta small.


The cams should look like this when all done and timed correctly:

Hope this helps :cry:

If your having trouble.. the 250f have the same procedure.. just dont bother counting the links or pins, it gets too confusing.

hey guys
I want to thank you for your help.
this is my first 4strocker and i need to know everything about it.
Ive been riding a KX500 for the last 6 years and it seems to be alot easer to rebuild the engine.
There is a Clymer's manual on the way
thanks
