bike hasn't run in 2 years. this is a new case, new pistons, new head gasket, new cams (non stock)
nd2spd, that's what i was thinking. i don't see a full tooth of diff between my pic and the one from the maint. section of this forum. i see a LITTLE, but not a tooth. again, if you look at the 4 or 5 places that the marks are depicted in the shop manual, in half of them (the photographs) the marks look higher than the cylinder head top surface and parallel to it, in the graphic DRAWINGS of the marks, they look slightly angled and closer to the top surface of the head. the photos look like they're taken from a perspective ABOVE the cylinder head top surface, the diagram/drawings are shown from a perspective looking STRAIGHT at the cams. i could mimic each by varying each cam one tooth. i can make mine look like half the diagrams in the manual, or move them both one tooth and make them look like the OTHER half of diagrams in the manual. GRUF !~ but i suppose the degree wheel should get me where i'm going. IF the magnetic base of my dial indicator has anything decent to grab onto !
