Re: Before I touch anything! - Engine gurus

Ya.. It's an 06 R6. Sorry aboot that.

I took my nighttime medication, so I'm only on 1 cylinder right now, and can barely even move to type this, so try to stay with me.

After watching an EXTREMELY helpful vid of a lad tearing down, and showing how it's all done. I think I know what I need to do, and your pictures up there make perfect sense!

I think I was just caught in the, everything needs to be marked, and put the same.. But.. Not really. My timing seems to be out.

So, I'ma get that whore to TDC, yank the cams out, do my valving shit, then, when I put it back, make sure it's still TDC, align the cams as per what the fcuk they should be, throw the chain on so the slack is only on the back, where the CCT is, and stick the CCT in, and give it a couple turns, and make sure everything is where it should be.

That sound aboot right?

(Again, if I sound like I'm not making sense, I apologize. This medication really effs me up.)

Thank's bud! Appreciate it!

Excited to get to know the workings of the insides of my bike a little, instead of everything on the surface!

Nice to learn a few more things!

As I read the posts and saw the pictures I was dying to post that your cam timing is more than likely lost and now you need to do exactly as you post. Cyl 1 to TDC and re-time the cames. You should cop some adjustable cam gears and advance 1 degree the intake cam... Bottom end is for pussies anyway.

J/K, I have no idea if you'd have valve to piston clearance if you did that.

Noticed in the second pic your timing cover is still on. Take it off and it has timing marks to get it at tdc then align the cam marks with the cylinder head.


Btw was it a pain to get the engine out? I left mine in when I do valve checks

Glad to hear some people backing what I thought.

Last time I did anything involving timing, I was 16, working on an eagle talon, with my dad yelling at me to do this and do that. Needless to say I don't remember a whole lot...

I will post the video I watched that helped me too, when I get to work, for anyone that's as useless as I, searching for a remedy in the future.

Maybe this piece of shit was out, this whole time. Would explain why it has been running so shitty. And, if that chain was that loose as well, would explain the gnarly slapping noise I was hearing when I started it up.

Glad I pulled it apart.

Yea, I pulled the cover off shortly after taking the pictures.

What's the best way to ensure I have #1 cylinder at TDC? (without pulling the head off..) Stick my finger in it, and wait to feel pressure, and see that it's at the mark?


The engine was actually pretty easy to get out. Did 90 percent of it by myself, and then a buddy showed up, and helped.

Just need to really make sure you're paying attention when it's coming out, or you end up ripping throttle cables........... :/ but, probably took about 2 hours, start to end!

Sorry for the sideways pics idk ehy my phone uploads them that way no matter how I take it.
There is a alignment mark on the crank gear and another on the engine case. Line them up and you're good.
