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 adjust valve clearance

guys mainly the valve gets heated and gets expand so the valve clearance is adjusted . according to my studied knowledge the inlet valve clearance should be perfectly 0.5 mm and the exhaust port must be 0.6 to 0.7 mm. this the perfect tuning for the 2 wheelers . [ remember guys before you set valve clearance make sure that engine is fully cooled condition.....

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.

Backfireing when decelerating

it can be caused by a number of things including.
lean mixture--air leak intake or exhaust,
leak in exhaust gasket
low ignition voltage- bad plug,lead\resister cap
tight valve clearance
and a number of less likely problems like faulty kill switch, ignition switch\cable connecter,igniter.
If it is not the standard exhaust, the jetting may need a slight change

So first give it a tune and service, check valve clearances,new aircleaner, drain carbs, tighten exhaust bolts and clamps, intake clamps and bolts,it may need exhaust gaskets

What fluids are best for my 1997 Sport 1100i? I have read that syn oil deterioates the plastic bearing housing in the trans. What should I use in engine, trans and diff?

If synthetic lubricants deteriorate the plastic bearing housing, conventional lubricants will also deteriorate it. Use whatever lubricant you want of the proper type and viscosity. There is no "best" fluid. If unsure, or unwilling to do the research yourself, follow the manufacturer's suggestions.

Any chance the valve spring has collapsed? Cam shaft thrust washers missing? Cam shaft bearing gone bad?

the pleasure of owning a delicate exotica when there are no Guzzi shops within 100 miles your bike can't be moved and your friendly and competent Kawasaki shop is hardly Guzzi knowledgeable (and so am I it seems) ... smile.gif I have broken some transmission bearings and am now confronted (again) with equivalence problems... As you may know the Ghezzi STW is made off parts from V11 and parts from the 1100 Sport. From the picture below would you say it's a 1100 Sport transm' or a V11 trans' ? Yeah, I know, I know, but Bruno Saturno is on holidays and the entire Italian economics is at sleep in august. I have looked here and there are several threads wich mention parts number but as long as I'm not sure which bike donated the parts, I'm stuck smile.gif I have taken a V11 parts list and here's what i need bearing 26 (92 20 80 14 numbers are from a v11 2002 list parts) needle bearing 25 (92 23 40 55) spacer 04 35 51 02 (i actually need to measure it to be sure if it's 0,8, 0,9, 1 or 1,1mm) Are there equivalence between 1100 parts and V11 parts ? (the parts numbers aren't the same on the parts lists). Would you know any parts that would fit from a different origin (SKF ?). Thanx for any help..., well, I just looked in the sport 1100i workshopmanual, there they say replace each 15000km with sporty use or each 20.000 km with normal use. I know they live longer than that. But anyway it is good to take them of each 10.000km, have them in your hand and feel if they move without play. And while you have them there, it's the perfect moment to grease them. And I'm no saint either, I once had one with melted bearing cages. But that was the sort that didn't have grease nipples.,,,
