Yep Davek it is about half a tooth off. Heres a closeup of my crank.

I'll try heating the bejesus out of the gear tomorrow and see if I can turn it a bit to get the tooth to line up like yours. While I would like to get it spot on, I don't think being half a tooth out would make any noticeable difference. I ran the balancer on my XL350R several teeth out for a fair while, and never realised it until I pulled it down to replace the big end bearing. Though that could be why the bigend shat itself!!!
I might put the crankshaft in the freezer overnight to see if that makes the gear any easier to move. Worth a try.

Yes. Lay bike to the right to remove, lay it to the left to install.
Put a pizza box under the engine. Xtra large pepperoni.

Pretty one, what kind of alloy did you use and what thickness??

I did one for a XT500 some years ago and it's true that it looks great and cool down the head much better.

Engine almost out, gotta find a table to work on. Focused too much on getting everything else ready, just need to find a table sturdy enough to hold 100+ lbs

So what's the deal on dropping valve seats? Is it a common thing for these bikes? or is it just cuz they're old and wore out? I couldn't find too much info on the interwebz

Old and too hot at times.
Did you see mine?

Those seats are tighter than a clams ass.

My machinist is surprised that the seats are still dropping out after thirty years of use. He blames the lack of surface contact between the seat and head.
