Default Another timing gear thread but with photos

Many of us have had this delivered to the front door.


Say it isn't so!!! The service manual clearly shows the center bolt torque spec!!!


Opened up with the factory timing gear.


Factory timing gear is gone. Man it was a bear to remove they load the white putty looking stuff on it.


Damn it I mounted it upside down!!!
Slid on easy and torqued to spec (remember the service manual?)
Blue locktite
Adjustment screws torqued to Lloydz spec. Amazing nothing stripped!! Set to 4 degrees.


Useless crap that's been removed!!

Looking at your useless pile of crap reminded me of the debate I had with a few peeps over the rubber seal. Many people might be shocked that I still have mine in .......I'll tell you why and how.
When I first got the XC and came here I read about how removing the strip would increase Hp by like a million % so I did it at the same time as I installed the Victory stage1 AF. A few weeks later I get caught in torrential rain storm, one of those wicked "walls of water" that end the riding(This was the second time since owning the bike I got caught in a storm like this, the first was day I brought it home). After a few miles in the storm looking for safe harbor to stop my bike starts lurching and surging **f^&^ing great**.... I did manage to get stopped and the storm passed. Then bike is giving me trouble starting. I lifted the tank and yes it was wet under there and so is the air filter....While I wasted hours getting dried out I realized then what the strip was placed there for....
So to continue to have improved air flow but seal out water I clipped about 1" off each end of the rubber strip and reinstalled it and have not had any such issue since. This year when I changed over to the Lloydz AF, I modified the mounting bracket the strip is on to fit with the Lloydz's filter.
I know without a doubt that strip has a purpose to seal out water from the air intake, I'm not running with out it.
Does having the strip cost me a pony or two, probably....But I don't care, I'm not riding a race bike, I ride in the real world, where I'd never notice and I'd rather have the security of knowing the air intake is sealed to water.

I installed the Lloydz Hi-Flow filter so I removed more than just the rubber strip the Lloydz replaces the entire assembly. Notice the rubber strip is still attached?

With the Hi-Flow AF you don't have a choice you basically gut it and replace it with the Lloydz.
