Thats why I did the video. To show you don't need to find TDC to adjust the valves

Like I said before time before last I tryed to adj my valves with a feeler gauge they end up to have to much gap in them the bike did not want to start when cold with the E-Starter and I notice it would load up when running at low RPM's I was MX the bike at the time I notice this happens in tight slow corners.

When I readjusted The valves with out the feeler gauge Travis way the bike starts easyer and with the E-Stater when cold and no loading up so far I have not MX the bike yet It mostly Wide open Desert type riding.

Oh yea Travis Many thanks for all you're Video's you have put out made made my life much easyer.

We are working on it.

Nice! Im over paying $100 for my local KTM to check the valves, probably doesnt take them long and its an easy buck for them:bonk:

Will the method Travis shows work if I have a Rekluse auto clutch?

It the auto clutch doesn't allow you to turn the motor with the rear wheel. you can pull th igniton cover and turn the motor over with the flywheel nut just as easy. and at worst you will have to buy a ign gasket
