That's funny.... on my 750 twin, both pistons go up and down together so TDC is the same for both sides.

im still trying to set the timing on my 1988 kawi ninja 250 dohc. the local library dont have what I need. I just need help, first of all I dont know which piston is the #1 side and I dont know where the lines on the cam gears are suposed to be after tdc? i've tried a couple of times but I'm touching a valve every time so if anybody could help that would be really cool,
thanx,

When I say I am touching a valve I am turning the motor with a socket wrench and I'm not hurting anything.. so if you dont know how to time a dohc ninja 250 dont post back, this is my last attempt on this web site.. I would appreciate a good reply..thanx....

practicing is right, and I wouldnt ever ride a crappy kawisaki anyways, its just a gocart.. and if I had the ****ing book I read it, and if the ****ing library had it I would check it out. I'm not going to spend $40 for a book I would only use once. hey if all those mechanics can't explain how to time a ninja 250 then they dont have a ****ing book either, by the way I ride a yamaha 1100 xs special, and thank you to everyone who has helped me those people are cool!!!
