Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
I have a yamaha xvs 1100 that has some engine noise and i think the tensioner may need replacement.
All v twin engines are noisy, if you could totally silence the exhaust noise, you would be horrified how awful the motor sounds, it could probably do with the cam chain tensioner ADJUSTING. i wouldn't think it would need replacing. unfortunately the manual only recomends this being done by a qualified tech, i have a xvs 650 with same trouble. i would adjust myself if i could find out the correct tollerences.

I am replacing the one-way starter assy on a 02 v-star 1100 custom.
I did not line up the timming marks before removal!
when I line up the crankshaft key pointed straight up the center of the rear cyl, should the front piston be on compression or exhaust?
or should the mark of the front cam sprocket be pointed some were?
I know the rear cam mark should go to the top pointer! but the front not so sure? help? Reg B. thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
