Have found the info i need in thetechnical how too's but was told it is shims and done differently?Yeah it's shims. Point the marks on the cams at each other on compression stroke (i.e. after inlet valves have closed) then check the clearances. No need to lock the crank. If they are out of spec then you need to lock the crank at TDC remove the camchain tensioner and remove the cams to get to the shims. Be careful cos the shims can stick to the followers and drop off into the motor. Measure the thickness of the shims with a micrometer then calculate how thick the replacements need to be. See the thread the other day about putting cams back in. It's all pretty easy and the good news is they hardly ever need adjustment,,,

I got a new 2017 KTM 250 SX it runs very rich and the plug is black and it's not running right depending on where you are.


Hi, Dilwyn and the usual suspects are:
1. Idle speed improperly adjusted.
2. Air fuel mixture screws not properly adjusted.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Leaking accelerator pump.
5. Loose low-speed jet.
6. Plugged low-speed jet.
7. Contaminated or plugged low-speed circuit.
8. Enrichner valve/choke not seated or leaking.
9. Multi carburetors out of sync and need to be balanced.

I have 1981 Yamaha SX 650 and can't find the point gap and valve adjustment settings anywhere? Any answeres


Hi, the points gap is 14 to 16 Thou. Inlet valves 4 thou, exhaust valves 6 thou. I dont know the settings in metric, so using a set of imperial feeler gauges, that measure in thousands of an inch.
An easy tip for setting the points, is use the thickness of a standard cardboard, Business Card, it is the correct thickness for your points gap.

I have a 06 yfz 450 that is very hard to start how do you adjust the valves


You need to remove the valve cover and rotate the crank shaft to TDC then with a feeler gauge you check the clearance between the cam lobe and lifter bucket. There are 3 on intake cam and 2 on the exhaust. The clearance will most likely tighten as the valve seats and valve wear in. If the valve clearance gets too tight they will hang open and not seal for proper combustion. Valve clearance for my 2002 YZ426 are intake=0.10-0.15 mm (0.0039-0.0059 in) exhaust=0.20-0.25 mm (0.0079-0.0098 in) the 450 should be the same or very close

Has it got powerbrands


There are no such thing as powerbrands.

It does have a power valve system. It is not uncomon for these to be incorrectly adjusted after you do a top end job. My best guess is that this is the case. The owner's manual covers how this can be adjusted.
