    Doing the valve timing on my T150T, having read the articles that have been written before on the forum regarding the timing I am wondering if there is a way to make certain that the timing is 100% correct. I have matched up the marks on the timing gear and the engine does turn over without any valves hitting the pistons.

    Go to archive then in the drop down box click Triple Tales. The top TE is number 179 with Pete Churchill’s excellent article.

    Thanks Les, a little confusing this with the timing especially when used to working on Japanese bikes.

    Thanks for the info Ralph, as I said to Les it is a little confusing with the Trident after working on Japanese bikes for so long. I have set the timing to the standard marks and no valves hitting pistons so hopefully that should do it. I was looking to see if there was a simple way to check the standard timing but I think with all valves missing all pistons that is as good as it gets.
