Valve Adjustment Gone Bad: Outlander 1000 ** RESOLVED **

Got the nut out. See the pictures below!
Ever feel like you have the worst luck possible? That is how I was feeling last night! ha

So I got the front valve cover off, found Top Dead center on cylinder 1 and went to stick my .006mm gauge in to make sure it would fit and I hear a click,clink clink clink. I was like what the heck was that? I pull the .006mm blade out and look at my gauge set and notice the nut has fallen off that goes on the little bolt that acts as a hinge for all of the knife blade style guages. I couldn't believe it.

I tried the telescoping magnet with no luck, drained the fresh oil I had just put in and strained it out and no nut was found in it. I pulled the magneto cover off and couldn't see it in there so I'm hoping it's stuck to the back of the magneto rotor. I will be pulling it off tonight.

I couldn't believe that happend!

What does the Magneto Rotor puller do? I've spent a great deal of time working on Hayabusa motors and those rotors just have a threaded center section that you just thread a bolt into once you removed the center bolt that holds it on and they pop right off. If these are set up the same way, does anyone have the thread size / pitch needed? I'm going to stop by the dealer on the way home to see if they may have the OEM tool but if it's just a bolt that I need, I have had luck finding the correct size/pitch in the oil pan plug section at the auto parts stores.

Yep, just like a streetbike on the rotor puller.
Stock valve adjustment is .006" not .006mm on the exhaust

I did the same thing and the nut was behind the chain guide.

Got it!

Man I was sweating it after finding it wasn't attached to the back of the rotor. Took a little wire off a plastic ice creame bucket and ended up hooking it out of the oil pan. Pure luck, I ran a magnet across the bottom of it and it moved it just enough that I could see it through the oil fill hole. I actually planned on just scrapping it over where I could get a magnet on it and was shocked to find I actually had it hooked.

I'm glad this is over and yes I put some loctite on that nut!

Thanks for the replies and kind words.

And thanks for correcting me on the gap Mr RPM! I am showing .11mm - .19mm Exhaust and .06mm - .14mm Intake.

LOL I don't mean to laugh at your bad luck but this made me laugh. Stuff like this typically only happens to me. I'm glad you found it cause it could have gone just about any where!..lol. My luck would have been it bounced and went completely away from the bike and I didn't know I would have torn the bike down looking for something that wasn't there!..lol
