Before I touch anything! - Engine gurus

So, got it peeled apart, to check the valve situation out--

I took the CCT out, before popping the valve cover (see now I shouldn't have).

Now, this is what I'm looking at. I could be stressing over nothing, but before I touch anything, looking for some guidance.

As you can see, the chain is off one of the cams, that's how it was sitting when I pulled the cover.

Now, when I stick my finger in the cct hole, I can take the slack off, but, not enough to pull it so it's tight, and locked in. But, when I let the slack go, it falls nicely into place. (see photos)

What do you suppose I do here. Is this something that will pull together when I put the new cct (manual) in, if you understand what I'm saying.. Or, is this something I need to deal with now?

Any more info I can provide, to help you answer, just ask! Am just being cautious, not touching anything, before I know exactly what I have on my hands. I'm not experienced with anything inside the engine, just know enough to mark, and put everything back exactly the way it came out, and the steps for checking my clearance. Everything else is a new language.

Thank you for any help!!

Here's what's going on:











Something tells me I either need to crank the motor, to make it fall in place, or, when I put the tension on the actual tensioner, it will pull it into place, but I'd rather not guess.

What do ya figure?!

Thanks.

I took the timing cover off and just held tension on the chain as I tightened it. when you are tightening the cams down watch the chain to see if its coming off the sprocket. If it is tighten the opposite side of what you're doing

Go fast parts:
Pipercross race filter, Leo sbk slip on, 05 header mod, pcv, bauce racing ecu flash, agg smog block offs, quick turn throttle, 520 rk gxw chain -1-1 renthal sprockets, ebc hh pads
, Shorai battery.

Ok. That makes sense.

But, when you had it apart, was it sitting on top of the cam like that?

And as you did tighten the chain down, did it pull into place?

Like, I feel like it would turn the motor clockwise ever so slightly, that it would drop on.

AS Long as I kept tension on it and tightened the cams down it fell into place.

Re: Before I touch anything! - Engine gurus

Holy shit, you took the motor out? I'm scurred.


Things I am sick of explaining on this forum:
  • What's the difference between an R6 and an R6s? HERE
  • Should I start on a 600 or a 250? HERE
  • How do I ask the forum a question and actually get an answer? HERE
  • Where do I find a map for my Bazzaz? HERE
  • Should I get a 520 kit for MOA POWAH? HERE
  • How does rotating mass work? HERE

Re: Before I touch anything! - Engine gurus

I see you have GSX-R in your "bike" section. What is the year and model? You see the line on the front cam sprocket? That is the timing/alignment mark. That is suppose to be even with the head with no.1 cyl @ TDC. There is on on the rear cam sprocket too. Crank and both cams must be in the proper place or you fooked!

You can find the manual for your bike from here: http://www.servicemanualsgsxr.com/ca...uki-gsx-r-600/

Look for the "camshaft" section of the "engine assembly" section something like this (from 01-03 models, different years is different but fairly similar procedure):



CCS Racer #379

Bikez:
01' Champions Limited R6 (retiring from racing)
88' GSXR 750 (recently restored)
02' R1 (sold)
07' R6r (race project)
04' Zuma 50cc (have to get around in the pits)
01' XR70R (sold)
??' 50cc air cooled pocket bike (dangerous!)
99' CR125R (sold)

He's actually got an R6, but his "gixxer" thing is him being a smart ass.. I believe.

Good way for me to waist my 1,000th post......
Either way, cam alignment procedure is very similar between models. Just check the shop manual OP.

03-04 r6:
