I just pulled my valve cover off to check the valve clearance on my 01 wr(Canadian)and there is 14 pins between the the dots on the cam.(I counted three times)The 3 o'clock dot on the intake cam is lined up with the head but the 9 o'clock dot on the exhaust cam is below.I bought the bike new and it's the first time it's been checked.Anybody ever her of this?

Sounds like someone either mistimed it when putting it back together or muffed the YZ timing mod. Oops, new bike. Gotta love those factory boys.
