Valve buckets colour system. Expert Advice needed
Posted September 24, 2007 - 07:22 PM
if you click on here
then select VALVE on the drop down menu, you will see there are 3 options of 'lifter valve' colours yellow, blue and black.
the only colour i was able to see on the head was a red mark, other than the pink marks indicating that the bolts have been done to a particular tension.
Can anyone shed any light on which colour option i need to choose?
the bolt that the red mark was on is black and i believe it may be the option.

it was suggested that they do this for the mechanics' benefit at the factory, so that less different sized shims need to be stocked, but for the diy kind of person, it makes things just that much more confusing. not that the factory wants us working on our own bikes, anyway.

if you have actually seen these with your own eyes and are able to save and mark this picture, that would be helpful, but we are fairly sure we have the right ones on order.
