Camshafts installed, cap bolts snugged but not torqued yet. Initial intake cam installation was slightly off, so I corrected...

Corrected by temporarily installing cam sprocket and using long needle nose to turn cam.

How much tighter the gap gets between snug & torqued ?
Thanks

I got the caps firmly seated, I will go through and torque it all to spec and do a final clearance check. I just need time to get out there. Someone always seems to need my time more than me.

Everything torqued down. Here is the final spread sheet. I'm very happy with how close it all came out. The farthest one out from the projected clearance was 2-1. It came out .03 more than projected, but well within spec.

Now to button it all back up and get those sweet ass Rizoma handle bars from PJ installed and get this baby back on the road. I haven't even tested out my new suspension yet!

Great job & details, after torquing did the clearance change a little?
did you start the bike yet?
Thanks

I did not take clearance reading with the caps un-torqued. I torqued them to spec and took the final measurements afterwards.

No, have not started yet.

is the torque specs in the manual correct? & verified, some are not so I just want to be sure before I start.

How would you rate the difficulty of the job from 0 - 10, 10 is the most difficult.
great write up & photos.

Thanks you sir.

I would assume torque specs in manual are correct. Although there are a few places where I do not torque to spec. The rear axle nut is one classic example. Use common sense. But I torqued all cap bolts, camshaft sprocket bolts and advancer wheel bolt to spec with out issue.

Personally, I would rate this job a 6, maybe 7 tops. But that's me. I've always been handy with a wrench and I've been doing this for a while. Read all proceedures thoroughly before diving in. Make sure you know what goes where. Also, taking pictures along the way will help greatly. Sometimes the factory service manual can be vague. For instance, with installation of the cam sprockets, you will only be able to get one bolt in on each sprocket before you have to rotate the crank to get the other side in, but you have to make sure you install the cam chain tensioner before you do otherwise your timing chain will skip teeth. That is why I torqued all bolts after the rotating assembly was together.

Take you time and work slowly and methodically. This way you don't rush and do something silly like drop a shim into somewhere inaccessible.

If in doubt, ask lots of questions. That is why we are here.

Not sure if FZ6 stuff belongs here but the title doesn't specify 1 vs 6 so here goes:

Started the valve adjustment process on the FZ6. It's very similar to the FZ1 so it's been smooth sailing so far. One intake valve was out of spec, some others were mostly just close to the tight end. Luckily, I had the shims I needed for the intake side so replaced those and put the intake camshaft back on. Waiting on shims for the exhaust.

Big day for me. Installed Micron header, Grave's stacks, ECU (Vcycle nut flashed)

I still have a couple pieces of plastic to put back on but I started it up. Much deeper tone than just a slip on. Sounds great!

With the Valley of Death Ride coming up, starting March 7th., i decided to change out my drive chain, on my 2001 FZ1.

The drive chain only had 18,500 miles on it, but was requiring to be adjusted, every other ride.

So, new counter shaft sprocket, and mint condition, used DID 530VX drive chain installed, with of course, new steel locking washer. Yet another 35 bucks, with free shipping, i will never see again, for that drive chain!!!!! lol!

Rode the bike back home from the "Quiet Riders" home, and after seventy miles back to Watsonville, all looks good. Whilst at said Q.R.'s place, i installed a pair of brand new H4 PIAA white light headlight bulbs, that a old pal gave me, whilst i was up in Portland, Oregon, last week. They are brighter. And so is Portland, with white snow! lol!

Made up a left side mount, that will fit onto the FZ8 clutch perch i picked up a few months ago, to mount up my left side Napoleon AP-104 rear view mirror. As the gen.1's run fairing mounted mirrors, there is no clutch perch mount for a handle bar mounted mirror, on the left side. There is now! lol!

Checked the oil, engine coolant, etc. Will throw a used, with 50 miles on it from new, mint condition PR4 tire this week on the rear, to match the PR4, already on the front.

The money i waste on tires! That rear tire, cost me $59.67 with Ca. sales tax thrown in! Gees!

Okay, that be it for now.

Adios.

Dean

Put the FZ6 back together last night as the new shims had arrived. I ran it for a couple seconds and it ran great so I don't think I lost timing which is amazing. Will be flushing the cooling system tonight as I'm switching from prestone to engine ice.

De-modded it (2013) to put it up for sale... Removed Arrow headers, 2Bros Black Series CF, GPR steering stabilizer, CD Strike seat cowl and PC V. Need to pull Ivan's flashed ECU, Penske 8983 with res., levers and Top Saddlery (long) seats but those will have to include OEM as swaps + cash when they sell. No time to ride anymore and interested have changed. After 33 years on two wheels, I'm hanging up the helmet. We're clearing recently purchased property to start building out retirement home on. It's been fun!!

I'm still seeing that same deal in stock. Pretty sure they changed their website so it looks like there is only 1 left in stock for every Bridgestone. So nobody buys all of them at once

Pulled the swing arm and greased all the bearings. 16k on it and almost all were a little dry. Luckily I caught it while bearings were still good.

Got a new chain from Pj. Of course he beat all prices by $70. Also new front sprocket that’s -1. And now trying a new used +2 rear sprocket. I cut a link outa the 124l chain to push the adjustment all the way forward to try the whole shorter wheelbase theory.

It’s only in the 40s here so every time I tried to wheelie it just broke the tire loose.

Finally got the carbs back in. I did take time to replace the orings. Probably a good call.
