Odd Camshaft Alignment Problem
I've owned 3 previous DL1000s, got a fourth (the others are sold). I've done a ton of valve adjustments on them, so was a bit casual with this one. I removed the rear intake cam without actually checking to see it was aligned with the hashmarks, it was at TDC (R/T in view window). I realize I should have checked, marked it and taken photos, but I've done this so many times without issue I didn't think of it.
So I've removed the intake cam, replaced the shims, and I find absolutely no hashmarks on the cam at all. More over, despite the exhaust cam being in the correct position, it has hash marks that aren't lined up. I have not removed it yet, and they're way off?
The best I can think of doing is replacing the intake cam in the exact opposite position of the exhaust, as that is how they were when they came out, by appearance anyway. Does anyone have a better suggestion for making sure the intake cam is properly aligned that doesn't involve the hash marks on the end of the cam? Or why the exhaust seems to be not on the hashmarks despite it definitely being at TDC and on the correct stroke (Cams are in B position)?
Thanks for any suggestions. Yeah, I should have checked first. Downloading photos, will post as soon as I get 'em.
