    According to my DVD, the 8mm pin is for TDC, both cylinders, and 6mm for BDC.

    This makes sense, as the very same hole is used for both cylinders. The only difference between the left and right cylinder check is that the crank has been rotated 360 degrees.

    Yeah, it's me and my brain fart.

    Just re-done the right hand cylinder using TDC 8mm and pre-tensioner tool and the alignment jig went straight on.

    So I got lucky as no re-adjustment was needed

    Another question..

    The bolt on the end of the Cam Shafts.... in the video you say torque it to 56Nm

    But in my Haynes Manual it says...Camshaft Driven Gear Bolts... 65Nm

    Can you confirm which is correct?

    In the Description just below the video, I've made a BOLD note about my error in the video. Yes, the bolts are supposed to be torqued to 65Nm, not 56Nm as I say. This is also listed correctly in the Torque Sheet in the Description also.

    Ok great, that's what I've done... torqued to 65Nm

    Just to note... If people click the link to your video's and it plays the video on this forum, you won't see your Description Notes or Comments, only the video itself.

    It's only if you launch YouTube App outside of this forum that you'll get to see the amendment notes (if you bother to read them).

    It might be worth adding this into the video itself as a Note on the screen so people can see it.

    It sounds like I'm being critical, but I'm not trying to be.

    I found the video's excellent.

    My only confusion was use of the TDC Tool when moving from one side of the bike to the other.... and torque settings on the Camshaft Bolts.

    Other than that... brilliant

    Putting any content on YouTube is a HUGE learning curve all to it's own! Once you post a video, to make an edit, basically you have to delete the video, which kills ALL links to it as well as the comments, then publish another video, which is a separate link. The only allowance given in YouTube is for the creator of the video to make edits/addendums to the Description section.

    Sorry for this error on my part...totally MY mistake!
