Don't force it. It should just slide into place with a little wiggling. Does it not fit in at all? Check to make sure the key on the shaft isn't broken or anything.

WD40 is NOT a lubricant, next guys who have trouble, just dip your finger in a Vic engine oil, new or from the dipstick and use that one.....

it will go much better.... thumb up

Ok done. A little engine oil and some wiggling and it went in. But one of the cover bolt just sheared in half and I just slightly tightened it. Of course the local dealer said he had to order the bolt. Wtf. A common bolt. So northwest hard had a. Great election of metric stuff.

I did call Lloyd's and some chick answered and said she could help me when I told her I couldn't get the new one on. So it old her it seem to be having problems sliding on easy. She told me to refer to my service manual. WTF ! My first encounter with tech support at Lloyd's and I am told to refer to my service manual. Why did she just say take two aspirin and call me in the morning! Anyway. It went on after some cleaning around the shaft and some oil.

I would do this first. It may not match exactly, so you can put it at the bottom where it's hidden by the floorboard ;)

All motors are diffrent. Ride yours for a couple hundred miles then change it

When my bike was completely stock, even the original vic air-filter then I received most of my upgrades shipments, but ONLY installed the Timing-wheel and ride 2 days.... for testing the difference

Man what a difference, my first setting was on +4 as recommended,

So I figured out that our octane in Indonesia is so "low" that setting the TW on 4 would help a lot....

Then 2 days later I installed most upgrades, PC-5, TT, Air-Valve to reduce any popping, etc and reading the documents reset the Timing-wheel on +2 for safety, tested it for 15 minutes, and decided I tried to +4 again, so apparently +4 from PC-5 & +4 from Timing-wheel is now total +8 (as far as I read correctly)

Mate just change the setting from 0 to +4 to +6 or what ever the Lloyds instruction says, the instruction is very clear, even minus - settings are stated.... it is quite easy to fiddle around with it?

Good luck mate
