Yamaha WR450F cam timing is it ok (PICTURE)

I recently checked and adjusted one valve on my 2004 WR450F. I have put the camshafts back on the bike but am not a mechanic but a long chalk. Although I can do basics. Just wanted to post a picture of how I have put it back to see if I have done it right. The bike is a TDC in the picture...Many thanks for any replys.

Looks good to me :thumbsup:

Anyone else want to double check my looking at his picture :lol:

I went by the 14 pin thoery. I figured that putting 13 pins between the timing marks would make the puch marks level with the clinder head not line up.

Is the chain tensioner on in this photo?

yes it is

Yeah....looks good to me :thumbsup:

Good to go.

The only time one would want to count pins is if a 450 exhaust cam was going into a 400/426 motor.

Other then that, the timing marks are there for a reason and should be the only way to go when timing the motor :thumbsup:

Like everyone has said, the photo above shows a correctly timed motor :lol:

thanks for your imput guys...nice to know I done somthing right..lol...Just gotta refit a mixture screw in the carb and i will be good to go...the other one fell out!!!!!
