Cams will only fit 1 wat. if you look at the sprocket on the can it should be stamped inlet or exhaust. when fitting the writing should be facing you so you can see the timming marks. if you have taken the sprocket of the camshaft then you will need to measure the cam lobe the smaller size is the inlet. hope this helps

I have a lesco zero turn 23 horse Kawasaki engine the vavle timing is off does anyone know how to change the timing on these?

Hey Matt, the valves are timed by the cam gear. The only way this can get out of time is a broken or bad cam or crank gear.

KAWASAKI ZX-6R (ZX600) NINJA CAM & CRANK TIMING SETUP 1995 - 1998 Turn the...


Turn the engine over by using a 17mm socket or spanner on the crank until the no.1 inlet valve goes down & then comes back up; continue turning until the T mark for cylinders 1:4 lines up with the rear mating surface of the 2 crankcases, number 1 cylinder is now at top dead center on the compression stroke.
The cams are marked 117 IN & 117 EX so they don't get mixed up, align the IN & EX marks on each sprocket with the the cylinder head surface so that the IN marks face to the rear & the EX marks face to the front.
Next check the no of roller pins in the cam-chain between the inlet cams IN mark & the Exhaust cams EX marks, make sure that all the slack is taken up on the rear run & that there is none at the front or between the camshafts: There must be 30 pins in between the 2 marks (including the ones next to each mark)
If everything is still the same when you have the camshafts bolted down you are OK

Cam timing marks

what type of bike. usually there is a make down on the stator housing, pointer or notch, then on the flywheel there can be a few marks, to time it must turn in the normal engine rotation. then usually on the cam gear there is a dot or other mark this will be at the top, some times there is also a mark on the top of the cam cover make sure you take the slack out of the cam chain while lining all these upand remember in the direction of normal engine rotation. If not you may bend valves and then you have more probles.

Valves hitting on pistons

if the valves hit the pistons the cam timing out way out.
Even a slight touch between the piston and valves can bend the valves, you may be able to confirm this if the valve clearances are too big,
the head may need to come off
