XL/XR 350-600cc torque specs"
Helpful, thanks! I noticed that the torque specs are just a little lower than the later bikes on several bolts, so that may save me problems with over tightening. I saw a picture somewhere on the XR600 forum that compared an old lower timing gear with a new timing gear. Anyone know where that link is?
Also, I have the case halves reassembled. I'm going to fit the cylinder, piston and head today and then check my timing chain like the earlier link suggested... If it seems off then I'll order a new set. I figure do that before I get too far along. The right side and chain can be assembled any time w/ the cylinder/head on.
I assume it test shifts ok?
