I do still hear the cam chain, but I guess maybe she's just loud because she's older.
I had the rotor at T and lined up the cams. The only thing I can try and do again is take the cam chain tensioner back off and reinsert with rotor at T. I've have been having trouble with that tensioner for a while now. Got to invest in a new one as soon as I can afford it.
Today I had the engine run till she was warm, and other than one of the coolant hoses leaking now, she did great!!
Tomorrow will be my first ride with the 688. Can't wait to see what she'll feel like!
well done NG.....well done indeed....
