Timing Gear set

Andy - did you pull the motor just for this? Or you already had it out for another reason? I assumed the gears could be installed with engine in-situ.

They can, easier that way.

engine in frame. I did pull the front wheel to get the front triangle sub-frame

out. I don't mind the extra work if it gives me a nice panoramic view of what I'm

doing. It also allows me to get in there and clean. 

I am wondering what to do about the empty holes where the OE chain tensioner

bolted on. Facing the motor, the bolt on the left I am thinking about leaving out.

the bolt on the right actually goes through the front main bearing. I think I will put 

a short bolt so I can torque it back same as the other main bearing bolts.

engine rotates freely over and over.

I left the second tensioner bolt out. I figure it gives a bit of oil mist to the gears, and one less thing I could worry about having left unsecured.

Update....engine runs good stationary. 150 psi comp on both cylinders. It will be

a bit before a ride report.

fork seals have gone father south than me. shock seals seem to have gone 

on a trip with the forks. Clutch slave won't hold pressure.

Guess I have neglected the old girl. She needs a couple of Spa days and

should be good to go:rasta:

Hi. Has anyone comparison information concerning the advantage of straight cut gears, over cross cut gears. I've fitted straight cut timing gears on my cali 3, so I know the procedure.

Just the usual engineering stuff. Straight cut take up less room, simpler to make, more efficient due to no axial load generated than a helical gear set. Their disadvantages are less strength for the given dimension and noisier in operation. Straight cut are the gear of choice for camshaft drives as most exotic engines with gear driven cams demonstrate from Honda to Ferrari to Ducati Desmosedici.

I'm working off my pad of eyes Docc. I just poke around on the screen, no mouse.

 

I've got a heap more pics of stripped and buggered gears as well. Some of them are pretty gruesome. The only ones I'd use are Joes.
