Hotcams, the autodecomp does`nt work
Posted November 19, 2005 - 04:51 AM
When i was hitting my el-start at my first attempt of trying to start it, it would`nt turn.. Tried the kick starter, and felt that the autodecomp did`nt work well..
Got it started anyway`s, and it seems to work great (allthough with choke ON since i have`nt jetted it yet)
I am 110% sure of that the timing is correct.. Checked it 5 times, and turned around the motor several times before starting.
The autodecomp worked fine when i held the cam in my hands, but did`nt try it so much after mounting.. But i saw that it was out, in position to lift the exhaust valve.
What`s up with this? Anyone got a clue?

The only thing i now can think of, is that the little knob thats supposed to push down the valve, perhaps does`nt push it far enough down..
But i have to remove the camshaft to measure this, so i will let it be this way for a while
The bike really woke up now

But i have`nt checked it after running the engine.. I will pull the cover again today to check up on this again.. Got 2 sets of shims, so i was prepared

Valve clearance is perfect, but i think maybe the decomp button is`nt far enough out of the camshaft The linkage from outside the sprocket and in to he "button" seems to be a little "sloppy"..

I see that it opens the valve a littlebit, but probably not enough..

I have sent Hotcams a mail, and are waiting for a reply.. The sad part for me, is that i guess i have to send them my cam before they can send me a new.. Thats 2-3 weeks with no bike..
That aint so cool, now that i just got my new Trelleborg icestud tire`s, and the snow has showed up hehe..
