For what its — I use Penrite oil in da engine, any in the box and Motul in the diff (the one with Moly)

Setting the at tdc is confusing on a guzzi the first (for some)

Most, ok, engines are set on the heel of the cam and because of on many engines setting at tdc is impractical as they are either or on the opening ramps. The confusing is setting them on the marks S and D (right) because in the excitement forget that the marks the pointer twice in each and tdc is not when the mark is reached time, its every second Given the uneven firing of the it feels ‘wrong’ to many ending up with clattery and bent push rods.


Basic Instructions for a Big Twin Valve Adjust

1. Put on stand then remove plugs.

2. Move back back and forth. Select a gear, at least fourth.

3. both rocker covers.

4. the rocker to the front of the bike is the rocker, the one nearest the

carb/injector is the Inlet rocker.

5. Now one cylinders rocker gear at the time get a friend to rotate the

wheel in the normal (forward) of rotation (DOR) slowly,

6. Now you want to do is first watch the rocker go down and come up,

carry on rotating and do the same to the rocker but as soon as the rocker

cease rotating the rear for a moment, then find a piece of rod say 2MM wide

by at least long, insert through the plug hole and rest on top of

then continue rotating slowly until the rod comes up you to the highest

point then stop. The will be near enough at TDC to set clearances.

7. You will need to the clearance for you’re particular stated in the (ManSpec)

Manufacturers look in the manual under / valve clearances.

8. Select a Gauge as stated by you’re and insert it in the clearance between

the arm and the valve stem, so if it is a sliding fit no excessive clearance the

valve not need resetting. If the stated is say 0.35MM, and a 0.37MM gauge

slide slightly tight in the I would not adjust it, but any clearance than

this then I would. If in the it states two clearance sizes, the clearance will

always be for the

9. The same routine applies to the cylinder, it doesn’t matter is done first.

10. The clearances are via undoing the Locknut and rotating the in the

required direction, then the locknut.

11. Once you have the above the valve clearances are

12. Replace all covers and plugs the rear wheel to select gear.

13. At the end of action #6 with the at the uppermost position, if you wanted to

prescribed about 25MM either way to align the line with the

flywheel, but if you’re just the valve clearances Nos 1-12 suffice. Please note

each cylinder will its own marks (2) on the flywheel for both and tdc,

you cannot use ONE set of marks for cylinders. The two marks per cylinder

scribed on the flywheel will be 30MM or so to each other. If you the engine
