Sorry for stealing this tread but its allmost in the same area. I have gone thru the workshop manual but didn't find anything on the bottom end.
Anyway, I'm a rookie at Prowlertalk, new to this forum. I'm from Europe / Sweden, got my hands on a used 2008 Prowler XT 650 h1 a year ago.
I got a bit confused reading this tread, I'm about to put my engine back together (top end). I had some issues with poor idling and backfiring, teared of the head and found lots of coagulated/burned oil stuck on the intake valves. I'm waiting for the head/cylinder to return from the engine shop so I can assemble it back. Depending on verdict from the mechanic💸
My concern right now is that I might have rotated the crank one turn whilst removing the piston and fiddling with the chain. Since its a four stroke it fires every second rotation, right? Is there any way to see if the crank is in the tdc on the compression stroke? Beside mounting all up and test start? 50/50 chance😁
Ignition plate/rotor is kinda well hidden to see if its 180 degrees wrong ...
Please get me back on the road!
