IMO you should replace the timing chain with an oem one. they stretch and wear out like a regular chain. so you wouldnt wanna put all this money into it and have that snap on first start. and they arent expensive about $20\

there is also videos of procedures on changing it and then timing the bike again but good luck:thumbsup: :busted: :banana:

It looks stupider when you don't spell out "you" or "question". It also makes it harder to read when one has to decipher it into English. :busted:

No. The cases don't need to be split. Read this post, but remember it was written for a pre-'06 model, so you can ignore the part about removing the stator plate:

If you expect the courtesy of the help and advice of others, it often helps to have the courtesy to make your questions understandable without it being a lot of work on the part of the reader. We are trying to communicate in writing regarding technical matters here, not passing text messages in class. It also gives people to make assumptions regarding your intelligence which are probably not true, and creates the impression of laziness.

But it is a bit discourteous to point it out, I suppose, and for that, I apologize.
