1. Valve Clearance Adjustment

1.

Set the No. 1 piston at top dead center (TDC). The ‘‘UP’’ mark (A) on the camshaft sprocket should be at the top, and the TDC grooves (B) on the camshaft sprocket should line up with the top edge of the head.


2.

Select the correct feeler gauge for the valve clearance you are going to check.


Valve Clearance

Intake:

0.18-0.22 mm (0.008-0.008 in)

Exhaust:

0.23-0.27 mm (0.010-0.010 in)

no!


3.

Insert the feeler gauge (A) between the adjusting screw (B) and the end of the valve stem on the No. 1 cylinder, and slide it back and forth; you should feel a slight amount of drag.



4.

If you feel too much or too little drag, loosen the locknut, and turn the adjusting screw (A) until the drag on the feeler gauge is correct.


5.

Tighten the locknut to the specified torque, and recheck the clearance. Repeat the adjustment if necessary.


Specified Torque

7 x 0.75 mm

14 N·m (1.4 kgf·m, 10 lbf·ft)

Apply new engine oil to the nut threads.



6.

7.

Check and, if necessary, adjust the valve clearance on the No. 3 cylinder.



8.

Rotate the crankshaft clockwise. Align the No. 4 piston TDC groove (A) on the camshaft sprocket with the top edge of the head.


9.

Check and, if necessary, adjust the valve clearance on the No. 4 cylinder.

Apply liquid gasket (P/N 08718-0004 or 08718-0009) to the chain case contact areas. Install the component within 5 minutes of applying the liquid gasket.


NOTE:

Apply a 5 mm (0.20 in) diameter bead of liquid gasket to the mating surfaces (C).

If too much time has passed after applying the liquid gasket, remove the old liquid gasket and residue, then reapply new liquid gasket.



7.

Install the cylinder head cover.


8.

Tighten the bolts in two steps. In the final step, torque all bolts in sequence to 10 N·m (1.0 kgf·m, 7 lbf·ft).
