Tip & How-To about 1997 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja

KAWASAKI ZX-6R (ZX600) NINJA CAM & CRANK TIMING SETUP 1995 - 1998 Turn the engine over by using a 17mm socket or spanner on the crank until the no.1 inlet valve goes down & then comes back up; continue turning until the T mark for cylinders 1:4 lines up with the rear mating surface of the 2 crankcases, number 1 cylinder is now at top dead center on the compression stroke. The cams are marked 117 IN & 117 EX so they don't get mixed up, align the IN & EX marks on each sprocket with the the cylinder head surface so that the IN marks face to the rear & the EX marks face to the front. Next check the no of roller pins in the cam-chain between the inlet cams IN mark & the Exhaust cams EX marks, make sure that all the slack is taken up on the rear run & that there is none at the front or between the camshafts: There must be 30 pins in between the 2 marks (including the ones next to each mark) If everything is still the same when you have the camshafts bolted down you are OK Ride safe Bike-Doc
