    Hey guys, anyone taken a VF1000R engine apart ?

    I have my valve covers off the freshly removed engine and when I align the fly wheel timing mark for the front cyl (T1-3) with the rear case joint/seam the cam shaft timing marks are 180 degrees out.

    I ran it beifly before tear down, but not enough to know if it had decent power etc. I wonder what the implications are? I may have to pull all the cams and re time them ?

    if that were the case, i'd expect you'd have valves contacting pistons, eh ?

    As it happens, its OK. Being a long time 2 stroke guy, i forgot it takes more than one revolution of the fly wheel to fully cycle the engine. Sure, the Cams were 180 degrees out on rev1, but on rev2 they align.

    I got to slap myslef on the head for that one.
