Question about 1999 Suzuki LS 650 Savage
On My 1999 Sazuki LS 650 I'm trying to find TDC to check the valve adj. I can't find a notch on my cover. The cover is pretty scratched. IS there another place to look?
Hello, should be able to stick a rag, or get somebody hold finger over spark plug hole bump the engine over till rag, or finger blows off spark plug hole, take cover off top engine left side, small cover on timing gear, their should be a mark inside, where you took off small cover, it should look like a point, gear should have mark on it or the timing chain should have a different colored link, once you find them,make sure they are aligned, go to left side of motor, stator side, take small plug of the stator cover and see where your numbers or mark on the flywheel is, you might have to check with dealer to see what your timing marks are on flywheel,most atv, motorcycles have timing mark inside the hole, where you take cam gear cover off, it will look like a point, it is about in the 10 oclock or eleven oclock posistion, soon as you take cover off, you should see it, usually when piston comes up on tdc, it will blow air out of spark plug hole, if you can turn motor over with hand little bit at a time, stick screw driver in spark plug hole see if piston is up high as it will go, remember turn key off, and start switches,
