thats for stock or for less oil?...wat marks?
The timing marks he's talkin about are for the correct oil pump adjustment. if you look at the oil pump, you'll see the arm that gets pulled by the throttle cable. on that arm there is a stamped, straight line on the side. on the actual oil pump casing, there is a similar line. some machines had dots, but not many. these lines should be lined up perfectly at idle with the throttle cable in its normal routing position. also, the lever should move at the exact same time as the throttles do, no sooner, no later.
it's not recommended to set the pump any leaner than stock, with the lines lined up. however, if you really want to, you can usually get away with setting it a little bit lean, and i mean a little. about the width of one or two lines. set it leaner by adjusting the cable so the lever goes further back in it's swing than when you push the throttle. there are two 10mm jamb nuts that must be loosened to accomplish this. adjust the nuts up on the cable to make it pump less oil. tighten and reverify the marks. use a good synthetic oil like Polaris VES Gold. good luck. if you need more help, just ask. -Polaris Doc
