i believe its pretty much like the 1200s i don't know why they want you to pull the plug and turn the engine from the rear when you can much easier turn it from the front crank?:shock: looks like to me the timming marks are much easier to spot on the 1100 there appers to be only one set. t mark in the rear sight hole lined up timming marks lined up in the front with the up mark up. just make sure you turn the engine through a few times to make sure you got it and there is no binding or dead stops.

You are right. Cranking it from the back is just more work.

But as a whole, the tutorial will help you through it. It helped me to successfully change the belts on my 1200. :action:

Using a ratchet and socket to turn the engine from the alternator nut with the timing marks right there next to where you are working in easier for me cause I don't have to stretch around to the middle of the front to get a hold of the crankshaft pully to turn it and still see the marks in the timing mark hole. But that's just me.

Your mileage may vary!
Each to his own!
It's hard to be great when you are as humble as I am!
Tain't nothing wrong with me that a good insign assalym couldn't cure! (Or a ride on my wing ifen I ever get it all back together!)

i just got done doing mine, and rebuilt my tensioners per the faq. worked great. only issue is you need to order the tensioner bearings in advance as no one carries them.

use the crankshaft bolt for turning the engine over and it's easier than turning it over from the rear.
I agree FitzAl, It is easier to turn the engine over from the front.

I know that sandiegobrass spent some time and money figuring out which bearings would work the best as tensioners. He has done all of the leg work and we get the benefit of it. I am glad it worked out good for you.

To bad I have to wait 5 days to get the tensioner bearings, i called honda today, they want 90 bucks each.I think this new set up will be better. i have been writing to you all about a noise like rod knock on right side where i found cam timing off by 1 or 2 teeth. I will let you know what difference is felt and heard with cam timing correct now. I will probably have to re sync carbs.
