Cam Plugs Need Replacing
Written by jim.strtr on 8/2/2011 at 05:32 am

Douglas: I have two questions. First do you still have your loose shim on your
bookcase? There was a reason why it was in there but guessing where it goes
will result in Chris Weiss' carb problems. He put too many or too thick a shim
on an intake valve and now it doesn't close fully. If he continued to ride the
bike it would have burned a valve. And your extra shim would result in the
hydraulic adjuster moving to the end of it's travel. This will eventually cause
a ticking noise and ultimately you will have to go back in and re-shim the
lifters correctly. At least that's my take on it. I am not looking forward to
this. So far I have all the body work off and the air cleaner off. Jim S.

http://www.directcon.net/lcshepp/PC800SMPage8-2.html you will be able to replace
the plugs. Note that one of the torque specs on that page is wrong (if I
remember correctly). I think it's #8 and it should be something more like 21
N-m... The correct value is in the front of the manual. Does anyone else know
if I'm remembering that correctly?

      Doug, It is #8 and should be the same as #9, 27 N-m or 20 Ft-Lbs. There is also no torque listed in the picthure for #7, 6mm bolts, which is in the chart in the front listed as 9 N-m, 7 Ft-Lbs. Fred --- In
