So i'm in the process of doing the valve clearance.

The valve clearance was sooo tight on the left side. Took like 3-4 full turns on the bolt to get the feelers through. Using .15mm on the intake .20mm on the exhaust.

But now the rocker arm as back and forth play, the 4 nuts are tight to 25lbs.

I was using this as a guide

he said before doing valve clearance to make sure the rocker arm didnt budge (correct if wrong) and it didnt so i proceeded to valve clearance. Now there is play as stated now that the clearance is right.

I buttoned everything back up and fired the bike up for a minute. I can hear valve noise now and he said i would if it was not tight. Positive side was after 2 pulls of the throttle the caughing seems to be gone. But I shut it right down when i heard the ticking in the valves.

Could someone explain how to get rid of this? his instructions say tighten the nuts but they are tight... I may have missed something though...

have this ignition installed
