Honda 1982 XL 125 R. When timing marks line up, why won't the electric timing mark rotate far enough to line up?


The electric timing mark as you call it is activated when the engine is running it shows the advance timing as the engine speed increases.

Many older bikes had a T mark and an F mark on the flywheel. T = Top Dead Center, F = firing mark. I had one of these in the early '80's, from what I remember you have to set up the flywheel to T, the cam wheel to its marker on the cylinder head. then you have to make sure the piston is on the firing stroke both tappets closed.

Also you need to make sure the cam chain tensioner is free as this will make the chain pull back. Once you have everything in the correct position and you are at the correct point in the 4 stroke cycle the engine should start. Good luck

I replace timing belt but cant set timing


Hi Robert, It would help to know what engine is in your vehicle? A rule of thumb way to set up the valve timing is as follows. Rotate the crank shaft until the crank shaft mark is about 90 degrees from TDC. This will protect the valves from damage when rotating the cams to align them. With the tappet cover removed rotate the cam shaft or shafts so that the number one cylinder is on compression (both inlet and exhaust valves fully closed) and the last cylinder in line on overlap, Look for adjacent timing marks on the cam gears and somewhere close to those look for the alignment marks (maybe notch marks, holes or indented match marks). (Some manufactures use the machined gasket surface where the tappet cover closes onto the cylinder head). Look closely for the static mark on the cylinder head and align the cam(s) to it or them. Once completed, set the crank at Top Dead Center and look carefully for a timing mark which aligns with the gear and set them. Fit the belt so the marks align when the tensioner bearing is released and presses the belt under load. (follow the manufactures recommended tightening instructions.) . (Remember never to crimp a timing belt, if it has been, throw it away and get another, even if it is new!) If the belt snapped and that is the reason for replacement, internal damage may have resulted inside the engine. A snapped belt may cause damage to the valves, the camshafts, the cam shaft caps and to the pistons. If the engine turns much faster than expected and sounds as if there is no compression, you have problems! (Those I've just mentioned. I hope not for your sake. best of luck Regards John

How to timing and adjust valve tappet clereance


Remove the crankshaft tappet cap at the front of the motor and the timing inspection cap on the top right side of the rear cover.
Take off your valve covers.
Rotate the motor clockwise and align the TL mark with the pulsar index mark. Check that all the valves are loose on the left cylinder. The left cylinder must be at T.D.C. top dead center on the compression stroke.
At this time you can adjust your cam chain tension if you are not out fitted with an automatic cam chain tensioner (the cx650 automatic cam chain tensioner will fit in the manual tension models). Loosen the hex stud above the timing inspection hole and re tighten, done.

VALVE CLEARANCE
IN: 0.08 mm (0.003 in.)
EX: 0.10 mm (0.004 in.)

Adjust the valves on the left head first ("TL" mark). Loosen the lock nut, turn the screw until there is SLIGHT drag on the feeler gauge. It is very important that you do not over tighten the valves. The Rocker assembly floats on oil and will zero tolerance the valves all by itself. If you over tighten the valves it will push the rocker to one side and damage the rocker bearing/shaft. Hold the screw and tighten the lock nut . Recheck the valve clearances.
Rotate the crankshaft clockwise and align the "TR" mark on the rotor with the pulsar index mark. The right cylinder must be at T.D.C. at the compression stroke.Make sure all the valves are loose. Adjust the valves and recheck the tolerance after tightening.
Reassemble the motor.

How to change timing belts


There is a small cap on the top left side of the motor . If you take it off you will see the timing marks. To line up the 1 T F mark you will have to rotate the motor. This is done by removing the tappet cover in the center of the magneto on the back left corner of the motor . To rotate the motor insert a 17mm socket on a short breaker bar and turn. If you reach between the radiator an d the engine with a 10 mm wrench you can remove the timing belt covers without draining and removing the radiator. Take off both covers and look at the cam gears each one has a dot that should line up with the arrow on the back cam cover outside most edge. When the Cam arrows and dots line up , and the 1 T F is lined up , then the engine is correctly timed (mechanically speaking). Now loosen the belt tensioners and remove the belts. Check that the tensioner bearings are in good order, if the bearings are bad, replace the tensioner assembly. Put on the new belts, tension them, and double check the timing marks. If the marks do not line up, loosen the tensioner and adjust the belt. Check all the marks before you move anything , rotate gently , and do not force anything or you will be pulling a head off to replace bent valves.

Wanting to know what the timing proceedure is on my 2007 model DRZ 250 motorbike


Not sure what state of "togetherness" your motor is in but, there is an inspection bolt hole on the front side of the magneto cover. Take this bolt out together with the sparkplug and remove cylinder head cover. Turn engine till a timing mark appears in the centre of the inspection hole. The piston/crank will be at TDC (top dead centre) if magneto rotor is keyed on correctly. Do not set anything on engine other than at TDC. Magneto is tightened on to crankchaft end with a locating key, this covers your spark timing.
Valve timing is achieved via the cams, place camshafts into cups at TDC (all valves will be shut) and timing marks on camshaft sprockets will line up with line on cam cup journals in the head. Camchain is fed on from opposite side as chain tensioner to ensure timing remains when tensioned. Let me know if you are "all parts on the bench" or contemplating a stripdown, I can then clarify all necessary steps.
Cheers.

Is there a timing diagram? I need to put the timing chain back on.


remove the right hand inspection hole from the engine cover turn the engine over with bolt in the hole and set the mark to no 1 tdc on remove the cam chain tensioner set the inlet cam with the inlet line mark flush to the head were the cam cover would sit then set the ex cam flush with the ex line and check that all three marks line up :inlet flush with the head the same with the ex cam and the crank mark lines up with engine case no 1 mark bolt down the cams in a criss cross pattern and torque to 12nm then back of the tensioner with a small flat head screwdriver you will have to hold it in the bolt it in and pull the driver out and you should hear it snap in place turn the engine over clock wise and recheck your marks to make sure you have it set wright.
hope this helps please leave feed back.
