While at TDC, the cam timing marks are correct on both cam sprockets
Double check, then triple check your work........ last thing you want to to be wrong on cam timing
if so then you are good to go on starting
I highly doubt you could ever extend fully any auto cam chain tensioner without the chain being broken or one of the guides completely missing (or not installing it at all)
So I bet you are only using the normal 10-15mm near the begginning like 99% are when everything is put together properly....
I see bikes all the time and when you look at 100+ cam chain tensioners a year and can see the wear marks on them from how far they travel then sit, (clicker types are often only 8-13 teeth out (1/3 max of travel) and some have finer teeth than others thus the desparity........ the hydraulic ones and those like like you show I measure them all the time at about 10-12mm and occassionally as far as 15mm out.........they can go more than 30mm out, so more than 40mm)
woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
