Hi I'm working on a 1975 xl125 and was curious about which marks to line up for the timing chain, I've been searching google but haven't been able to find anything, and also what are the torque specs for the head and cyl nuts, thanks

  • I see where to line the cam at but what mark do I set it on the crank? T? F? Or the 2 dashes

  • Got go on the T is this the sealed head model

  • Yes, I see the notch where I line the cam up just didn't know about the flywheel, I knew the F was to set the pointa

  • Do you think this is set correct? It's the closest I get it to line up

  • That's it circle print at top did you set cam lobes at bottom

  • The cam lobes are set in pretty much the spot you slide it in at, I rolled it over a few times by hand and the valves aren't hitting the piston

  • Cool but yea that's the circle marking to Top you have a very old xl classic

  • Later xl for comparison

  • Ok mine looks the same thanks!

  • Well done lads

  • Thanks mike putting pics up

  • Yup it's a 1975 which I believe is the first yr

  • And it's like the first 200th one made

  • Thanks Matt

    Hows my engine looking !!!

  • Michael Martin looking dry might pull it out soon
