While knocking the rocker arm shaft out of the camshaft housing I accidentally hit one of the side plugs. :whip: It got loosen so I pulled it out easily with screwdriver. Now I am not sure which would be the best way to re-fix it? Some "Loctite" glue maybe?
I wouldn't like it fallen out later....camshaft would loose the lubrication, plug itself could crush something:shock: ....no thanks!
So, loctite or some other way? Thanks! :waving:

I would try to hammer it to swell it so it would fit tight again and drive it back in maybe with some JB weld or other glue that would take the temperature.

Remembering how to do things. Get the shaft hot and the plug cold after you swell it to get a tighter fit.

I don't know, it works OK from my comp as well! It's a pdf document ("Loctite 603" product description). Maybe you have troubles opening pdf files as William said?

It opened just fine for me but I can't make heads or tales of the charts and descriptions.

It took me a while to figure out what was on your gas tank in that picture. It's a helmet hanging on the handlebar, right?

Nothing to it. If you have the full size image, PM me and I'll give you my e-mail address. I can fix it too.

That pic is in Yugoslavia? It looks like Portland, Oregon.

Well, maybe I might make a tour to Oregon with the bike once....:) It's pictured in town of Novi Sad in Serbia (ex Yugoslavia), in front of a friend's house. PM sent, thanks!

Update:
Done with Loctite 603. I warmed up the end of the shaft to some 80 degrees of Celsius and put the glue only at the plug and then inserted the plug in the shaft and lightly knocked it in. It went in easy and got hardly stuck as soon as few minutes later. No detectable leaking. Job done!
