Question about 2004 KTM SX 200
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,,,
