I have a 1981 yamaha xl 250 3y engine. bike battles to start, wen it eventually does manage to start it sounds as if the valve clearances are out, loud tapping noise that gets louder as the revs increase....

Clearances about 4 and 5 thou.
But it sounds a bit more than that if its hard to start and is very loud, the cam and or rockers may be worn, very common after 20 years

Clearance for inlet and exhaust valve adjustment

Hi there,

Not sure about clearance levels, but can tell you there is no English manual for the XJR 400 - only Japanese. Try the XJR owners club. It's full of troubleshooting questions answered in the forums.

Hope this helped

Big bore kit

The big bore kit is pretty easy. It is actually pretty basic. If you are buying a complete kit it should come with a spec sheet that will give you clearances and so forth. Make sure you gap the rings. I believe the gap should be .002" per inch of bore. If you are running a super hi-lift cam then you will want to check the piston to valve clearance and also the check for valve spring coil bind.
Good luck and let me know if you have any further questions.

Valve clearances are out

The valve clearances are the same as the GL 500,as I recall they are in .002" - .004", ex .003" - .006". The pilot air technically needs to be adjusted with the motor running. You want to start at 1 1/4 - 1 1/2 turns out.
