If the head is off, there's no need in worrying about tension to the cam chain. You can drop the chain down and to the side if the crank sprocket and it won't even move it then. You just don't want...

If you look at this picture, you can see pretty clearly that this valve was hit by the piston. (See the carbon smeared off and bent towards the outside edge.) You can see marks to the outside of the...

Naw... I like to do oil changes while driving down the road. Oil plug falls out, then you get to practice riding on ice at the same time. Works for the middle drive as well. As a matter of fact, you...

On the other end of that shift drum, there's a thick star plate with high/low spots on it and a spring loaded detent pin that follows that. There's no adjustment to it. If the lines on the shift pawl...

Your star washer looks like it might be bent so bad that the tab breaks off when you try to bend it back. I don't know if anyone has come up with a fix on that yet. Boats.net shows to have a new one,...

Yeah, after I apply the bead to the cover, I smear it with a finger to make sure it coats the whole surface. And yeah, it's a PITA to get the cover back on without smearing it onto the cam chain a...

Since the grit in our fuel now days will wear the brass jets, I would think plastic would be a "DOH!" moment? Who knows. Somebody thought it was a good idea.

My first suggestion is to go ride it again, shifting like you mean it. Being light on the shift with these bikes can get you a false neutral between gears. I hate when hard on it, hit a false...
