Camshaft on my V-Star 1100 stuck

I pushed the camshaft in rather than pulling it out. Now I can't seem to get the shaft out.

SOURCE: how do i adjust the cam chain on my xj600 yamaha

Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. Most of the manuals are in English but some are not. There is no way to be sure without doing the download. You can always delete it if in a foreign language.


Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.


A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

SOURCE: Yamaha FZ 400 engine timing

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

You will need a shop manual for this. It would take too much writing

SOURCE: Yamaha VStar 1100. Valve train noise after starter clutch repair.

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)

Good Luck
Hope this helps.
(If it does then please mark this as 'useful')

SOURCE: how do i set cam position and timing on an old yamaha xt 500

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 "

Code p0014 exhaust and code p0015 exhaust

The code P0014 is for Camshaft Positon Sensor Actuator Bank 1. The possible causes are incorrect camshaft timing, wiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve solenoid system; continuous oil flows to VCT piston chamber or failed timing valve control solenoid(stuck open).
The code P0015 is for Camshaft Position -Timing Over-******** (Bank 1). Your problem will probably be that the timing will be slightly out, due to wear (stretch) of the timing chain; this will all be linked to the overall cold start issue and the timing position. Get that timing checked, or push for the full fix for the cold start timing issue.

Can you explain how to replace a cam shaft censor on my 300m 99

Welcome to

The camshaft position sensor is installed in the timing belt housing cover above the left camshaft sprocket.


1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.

2. Remove the upper intake plenum.

3. Disconnect electrical connector from sensor.

4. Remove camshaft position sensor bolt.

5. Pull sensor up out of the timing belt housing.


If the removed sensor is reinstalled, remove the old spacer from the sensor face, Attach a

new spacer to the face of the sensor.

If installing a new sensor be sure that the paper spacer is attached to the face.

1. Install sensor in the timing belt housing and push down until contact is made with the camshaft sprocket. While holding down in position, install and tighten bolt to 12 N.m(105in.lbs) torque.

Hook up electrical connector.

Connect Negative battery back up.

Camshaft timing

check you have correct TDC for the indicator marks, place a rod down the plug hole and slowly rotate to confirm top dead centre for one and two, and follow the clymer instructions again.
and always turn it over by hand(as you have done) 2 complete revolutions and recheck marks , before attempting to start.
