Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
I pushed the camshaft in rather than pulling it out. Now I can't seem to get the shaft out.

hi,normal way to set up fz is as follows,remove left hand engine cover and you will find cdi picups with a backing plate and interrupter tongue,remove all the spark plugs(dont get the leads mixed up),turn the motor by hand up to top dead centre on no1 piston,the tdc mark the plate will line up with the cdi pickup,no1 piston will now be at tdc,both sets of valves ex and intake should be closed and the tappets slightly rocking,if thay are not and any of the valves on no1 piston are open or tight,look to the end of the camshaft (where the cam fits into the bearing surface)and there will be a horizontal mark on each camshaft,release the cam chain tensioner,slip the camchain off the sprockets and rotate the camshaft untill the marks on the camshaft are exactly parrellel to the rocker box mating surface,fefit the cam chain and check alignment then retension the adjuster and check the marks again,if you have it right the marks should still be exactly parellel with the rocker box and the piston should still be sitting at tdc,if it is out by 1 tooth do it again untill it all three marks are exactly right,failing to do this WILL result in a valve sailing through the top of a piston,then it becomes a bigger job again,after you have got them adjusted correctly ,turn the motor over by hand to check that nothing is binding,if you are satisfied that everything is right,then use the starter and you should have compression,hope this helps

The cam chain has stretched a bit making it look like its half a tooth out, the tensioner takes up the slack but makes the cam timing slightly out.
You could have timed the crank 280 degrees out
It should be timed on the T mark for one cylinder & on the I mark (if there is one) for the other.
The marks before the T mark are for ignition timing (firing marks)
Hope this helps.
(If it does then please mark this as 'useful')

Testimonial: "Thanks! Have pulled right side cover off. Front cyl cam sprocket off by half tooth. Lower sprocket off by 5 or 6!! Starting from scratch."
You didn't say WHY the cam / valve timing needs to be reset. For some reason I get the feeling someone told you that resetting was needed and so you are asking how. Obviously, you may have installed new pistons and that is why the resetting is needed. In either event, when the cam timing is set the valve timing is also set. Other than adjusting valve lash, setting the cam sets the valve timing. Below is a web site where you can do a free download of a factory service manual. The process is not hard but having a manual will be more help and faster help than I can give online.

Testimonial: "Thanks for your reply. I've been to the web site before and downloaded the manual already. It does not really cover the situation I have. There also seems to be a lack of compression with the bike. A friend has lent me a workshop manual so I will try that in the mean time. Thanks again "
