Timing Marks on 2019 Flywheel

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Timing Marks on 2019 Flywheel

Post by tubarick » Tue Jul 07, 2020 2:31 am

I finished my second service on my 2019 cT. Service calls for checking valve clearances. When I pulled the rubber plug and looked for TDC and Firing marks on the flywheel, all I noticed were machined out grooves. I adjusted the valves the old fashioned way.

Are there any marks on the flywheel?

Should still be a mark on there. Notice the grooves are the same size, as you rotate the flywheel you will see a couple of wider grooves, meaning the engraved TDC arrow is arriving shortly. I marked the spot with a dab of white paint a few inches before the arrow so I know when it is close. A small flashlight really helps see the arrow, it is easy to miss it without a light for older eyes.
I try to do this when nobody is around as an old guy draped over the seat peering down with a flash light, slowly stroking the kick starter with his knee might be a traumatic sight for youngsters.

treebone provides good advice regarding paint marks and flashlights.

I got this from Heindl and yes its really hard to see but the alert on the clue did it ( have done this on an R80GS so was not new to it and still could not see it.)

As you turn the engine over, you see that series of short machined spots, dimples whatever you want to call them.

Eventually you will come to a long cutout. AS I recall about two small cutouts (forget exact) after that is the timing mark, Not bright yellow or red and white ish that into the metal.

Then is a matter of determine which side is TDC via the loose value and clearance on both in and ex loose.

I actually lucked out and came to rest on the outside one which being easier I wanted to tackle first.

Hooray. I found the timing mark and put some paint on it. I'm good to go.

I put a dab of paint on the flywheel a few inches _before_ the timing mark arrow.
Marking the arrow alone might only tell you it just flew by.
I prefer to slow down when I know it is close to appearing in the port, as it is very easy to rotate past the arrow.
This made sense to me after I missed it a few times and my knee was starting to complain.

Once I saw the large cutout gap Heindlt talks about it was easy to spot. Didn't bother to put more pain on it, it had white, there is random paint dabs elsewhere though.
