Question about 1999 MZ Skorpion 660 Traveller
Hi Guys, I purchased a 1998 MZ Skorpion Traveller. I cannot locate a workshop manual (Apart from a 2003 model) It is nearly impossible to get someone to repair as they all say "give us a manual" What I am after is the engine settings, valve clearances and carb settings. As the engine is out of the "Tenerie" are the settings the same, or slightly different. It is running like a dog at the moment and going through fuel like a V8.
Ron, what type of valve train does this bike have? If you are running shim buckets on the cams then you can figure .002" - .004" on the intake and .006" - .008" on the exhaust. Remember the valves will tighten over time which is most likely your problem, so I would adjust on the side of looser. When you check the valves check to see what they average for clearance and you may be able to determine if you need looser or tighter adjustments that what I suggested. You also want to make sure you adjust the cam chain, that makes a huge difference in low speed performance. I'm thinking you have some very tight valves right now though.
