Hey you guys, I was pretty well indisposed with health issues over the winter, and am just getting back to my Versys project now.
I am in the process of turning this pile of recently refinished parts back into a bike.
I have the engine out and on the bench. It ran like a peach before I stripped the bike, but I was coming up on 13,000-14,000 miles on her, and want to do the valve check before the engine goes back in. My tech abilities are more "trained monkey syndrome" than anything,
I have to see it done several times, do it with supervision, and after about five attempts, I can normally grasp a process and be OK with something.
I am not an internal-engines-guy. I have the top of the engine off, the side/port/inspection caps off, a socket and extension perched on the crank so the engine can be turned over, but that's where I stopped.
The thumbnail size black and white diagram for "lining up" everything before I start poking (AIMLESSLY) with feeler gauges--- I am not sure what I am doing there. Plus, the verbiage that accompanies the wee little diagram is sort of one long paragraph of steps and numbers and shi*t that I don't understand.
I don't want to mess this up, so I come to you guys with my dirty helmet in hand, and ask, WHAT THE HE*LL do I do next??
I promise to supply you with Versys-assembly porn in exchange for your tech tips.
