Hey, thanks! "There are 2 TDC positions for each cylinder. TDC on the compression stroke and TDC on the exhaust stroke. Both will correspond with the RT/FT mark printed on the flywheel."

That was what I was wanting to know. Much obliged!

Sure could use more pictures and a bit more detail on removing the carb. I've had my C50 apart and worked on the rear exhaust valves, but what a pain in the a$$ getting a feeler gauge in there is. I broke the gauge twice trying to get it in.

In all honesty, I gave up after doing the rear exhaust valves. Without removing the carb there's just no way to get to the other valves that I can figure out. Even then, it looks like the feeler gauge is going to present the same problem. (Doesn't anybody make a "slim" version?)

First, check your vehicle registration. You may be riding a Volusia instead of a C50. 2005's and newer are C50's and are fuel-injected. Voila!

Second, have you tried the JPaige method? I've heard it's easier.

IDK about the carbed bikes but for the fuel injected all it was was loosen the screw on the dual circle clamps that connected the throttel body to the bike and then simply pull the throttle body up by rocking it back and forth. It isn't bolted on its just held there with a special hose clamp.

if you have the carbed version it will be the screw pointed at by the arrow. If its the fuel injected bike it will be in the same place it just doesn't sit as high and the clamp has two smaller tubes as opposed to the one.

The pictures are back online now. Also, I've added a link to a downloadable .zip that contains the instructions and video that you can store on your PC.

WTF???? what gives you the right to copy and then repost the fruit of someone elses labor???

whether you agree with oregonlan or not, the decision shouldnt be yours to make....

he feels that a company has come in a claimed ownership of his intellectual property, that company can and will use his labor to make a profit, he posted his thread as a community goodwill offering, at no charge. its his property!

so he does the only thing he can to retain it, he pulls the pics and then you come along and threaten to repost his thread and pics????

you are a piece of sh1t, i hope karma uses you as a target for ill will, you deserve it

DISCLAIMER : i would like to take this opportunity to apologize in advance if anything i say makes you cry, it is not my intention to get your panties in a bunch. thank you.
