Thread: Engine Alighnment

HELP... GP1300R - I have a vibration I'm trying to chase down and want to make sure the engine is true, it looks straight from everything I can tell, but whats the best way to measure that the engine is straight?
PS: Anyone ever had a Harmonic Ballancer/Flywheel come loose? (also thinking vibration), I'd imagine it would make a hell of a racket (noise) if it came loose, so don't think that is my vibration issue).
thanks in advance.

Have you had the motor out before?
Have you checked the pump bearings yet?
Have you checked the rubber dampner/coupler?

Brand new pump bearings (just upgraded to new 05 pump and dynafly). pump seems to be pressed on correctly.
PS: Also only making 6500rpm... suspect partly due to vibration issue.

Was the timing key installed in the proper direction?

Might want to check for a bent plade on the prop.

Did you use a small straight edge on the drive couplers on all sides. You probably have the engine correct fwd to aft via the marks but side to side is huge. A cherry picker is a big help. Recheck after tightening. It might take a couple of loosens and tightens to "get her done".
