As with all the write up's I've seen from Bill.. FANTASTIC!!!
I think another good tip I've seen with a friend of mine, is zip tie the cam chain to the cam sprocket. That also keeps the chain in place.
Hayabusa...YES it's fast... and NO you can't ride it!!
a massive thanx to jinxster for the tech know how the bike was about to go in to the shop for the work to be done but when he gave me the price for new wheel bearings and valves and carb sync i nearly died find round my parts the word busa seems to imply your made of money so the parts and labour mysteriously rise
Great job from a B-king owner. I have posted your link on the B-King.org site for our members. Hope that's not an issue. Thanks and you have inspired Busa owners that adjusting valve is not a black mysterious science.
thanks jink... used this last night and it was much better than the service manual.
when do you change the shims if you dont mess with the eng. alot

Great write up and the pics are spot on. Will be helpful in the future. Thanks
I have to agree with Hurc (from response #27)
If I had zip-tied my cams to the sprockets, I would have saved TONS of time. TONS. I would also have saved 6,891 expletives, several dozen points of blood pressure, and the last shreds of my sanity.
Alas, I did not.
Don't even begin to remove the chain tensioner or damper without zipping that chain down tight!!!
The cam WILL spin. The chain WILL slip. You WILL be pissed. I promise.
