I learned how to set the tappits myself 4yrs ago I brought a VTR1000 and never needed to set anything 2yrs ago I went back to MG... brought the V11 nero Corsa and for those 2yrs the shop has done my maintance. However the warantee is now up so I might as well go back to servicing the bike myself. Fill in the blanks please people, whats the clearances? which markings on the flywheel do I use for which cyl's? rotate the crank which direction? anything else I need to know? ,The left side is marked S and the right is marked D. Rotate the crankshaft clockwise when looking at the front of the motor. The valve clearances are .1 mm inlet and .15 mm exhaust in Australia, I think the yankee ones are tighter? Watch the inlet valve close when rotating the motor, then find the top dead centre mark s or d, soon to appear in the window.That is the adjusting position.Or use a broom handle down the plug hole to find TDC. ,,,

How to set Valve clearence in Mitsubish Lance 1987 Engin model G15B

When Piston 1 is at TDC, (timing points inline), both valves are closed and there should be a gap, say 12 thou on exhaust and 8 thou on inlet. Turn the engine until Piston 2 is at TDC, (both valves closed as with number 1) and adjust, keep going until all pistons have had the clearance set.

After my mower gets hot it makes a ticking noise

It really depends on where the "ticking" is coming from. Was the ticking there before the leak was fixed?
If it is an 04 model, it is 10 yrs old. How many hours? Try to determine if it is coming from the area by the valve covers. You may have a tappet clearance issue. Check the clearance between the tappet and valves, check both sides (Twin 18 hp?). If any are out that is where the ticking is coming from. Could also be a worn cam, but sounds like a valve tappet problem.

04 crf 450 starts hard most times we have to push start it but after that it starts fairly easy.

crf honda's run titanium valves which wear out very quickly if valve clearances not checked very regularly. what happens is the valve wears on its sealing face and clearances close up and then valve rides and looses compression,much like a leaking tap. bike will make more compression and valves will try to seal when warm. i probably rebuild one of these bikes a week with this problem. get it to your dealer and have clearances done. you can get stainless steel valve conversion kits which are much cheaper than honda titanium valves.
