G'day,just came across this thread(forum)during a search for answers to this exact problem.
Except I think I've gone one better because I managed to destroy the rocker adjusting screws as well as the cam.
Anyhow the parts are ordered and on there way from O/S of coarse because the aussie parts must be made out of GOLD or something.

This thread was a real big help in me coming to grips with this issue!

So I've joined the forum as it looks like it'll be pretty informative and interesting.

I'd post some photos if I was'nt such a total DUMB-ARSE when it comes to computers.The missus or kids will probably know how!!!

Welcome sorry you discovered this place through misfortune. I see you only have 1 post so your photo uploading privileges are not yet allowed. I'm on my tablet or I'd link the lc4 index Page for you. Google advrider+lc4 index, you should come up with it. If you can follow a service manual and wrench a little you'll be just fine. You do have a service manual, don't you?

I'll check back later, been through this twice now. If you have questions, ask away.

Thanks for the encouragment.

Errrrrrrr nnoooo .....I don't have a workshop manual,just the parts book that came with the bike.

I'm pretty clued up when it comes to working on most engines and have a heathly respect for them especially when it comes to reassembly and making sure everythings fitting together happy!

The only thing that concerns me is getting cam timing right as I know you guys had a few issues with it.
As the old cam is still in place and will stay there until the new one arrives and is ready to be dropped in,I'm alittle worried about timing marks etc.

Anyhow I'll just take my time and quaddrupple check everything and check it one more time for goodluck.

If there's anything else I've gotta watchout for that was'nt covered in the thread I'd appreciate any info.

Thanks again

OK first of all.......you guys are fuggin awesome,those links you put me onto are going to be a BIG help,the do it yourself stuff on the LC4 in particular! And I've only given them a quick look as I'm in nite-shift zombie mode at the moment.

Second....I've joined a few car orientated forums before that were pretty good but look very average against Adventure Rider.

Third....forgive me for being slow to respond,I'm not one of those people who has 24-7 access to the internet.

OK thats enough pissing in pockets for now and THANKS again!

Just an update,parts arrived last week.

Everything fitted together as it should(well it looked like it did anyway).

Fired her up no probs,let her idle for a while and dropped the oil and changed filters, bugger all metal which is encouraging.

Just changed oil again(is'nt that a pleasure)and took it for a squirt..........BEAUTIFUL.....

Will do a few miles on her and change oil again just to be sure!

THANKS again for all the info.

Flaring the pins...

In case anyone fails to see the poetry in punching the pins multiple times to flare them, here's a method I've stumbled on that works great.
All you need is a normal table vice, a 4mm socket, a peace of flat metal and a towel:

in a vice, put the pit against the flat metal that rests agains one of the vices jaws, place 4mm socket on opposite jaw and center carefully on pin. tighten just a tad, check centering still good. Now before you torque the shit out of the vice wrapp the rocker arm and socket in the towel. This makes sure that in the event the socket would fly out, you dont loose an eye.
You dont need to super human torque it by the way, the pin is relatively soft.
Using this technique, generates the exact same pattern (size and depth) as the factory left on the pins.



the end result:



Looks like Art to me!

That looks like a good easy method, I'll have to try it on the next one I change...

I like it, thanks! Hopefully I won't have to do this again anytime soon but that looks very nice. I would have thought it would have required a press and a LOT of pressure.
