Bluetraxx.com might have a service manual posted with that info. yamaha also has owners manuals free for download but not sure if they'd cover that.

05 700 King quad with timing marks all lined up should all 4 valves open at almost the same time intake and exhaust open on exhaust stroke????


the exhaust and inlet valves will be moving if you rock the crank back and forward at TDC
this is called valve overlap and indicates that you are timing the valves on the exhaust stoke tdc and not the compression stroke tdc
turn the crank over till you get tdc again and see if the inlet and exhaust valves have clearance and the timing marks line up
timing is done only on no 1 piston TDC position compression stroke

MOVE EACH CYLINDER TO TOP DEAD CENTER OF COMPRESSION STROKE ( sorry caps on .) check that timing mark in timing cover hole is in line .remove adj cover per cylinder in alignment and adj valves according to mfg specs. to adj : under adj cover , loosen lock nut on top then loosen adj nut on btm @ top of valves . insert feeler gauge under rocker and adj ,this is tricky to say the least. usually takes several tries to get it right, keep trying the valves must be set right or major expenses can be expected to occur. intake and exhaust settings are different normally at least .005 .be sure to tighten locknut on top before checking if clearance is correct. holding the btm nut while turning the locking nut is the tricky part 4 me anyway. 2 valves per cyl. on most atv eng. adj all valves .start eng and listen to eng w/o reving up. any ticking noise and you get to start over. should be smooth idling and quiet. no popping or backfiring. smooth starting and off w/o run on. should not be performed unless you are familiar with the procedure. contact me or service center near you if not sure on procedure.correct adj. is slightly snug fit . valves making no noise when done .

How to adjust the lifters on a suzuki ltz400


Your ATV does not have lifters. Valve clearance estimate (FROM EXPERIENCE) is close to .004" intake and .0055"-.006" exhaust. This should be a little loose, much more preferable than tight.
