I just cleaned mine out a few weeks ago. Turned out one of the pins for the LCD was broken so I had to solder. I can also recommend using some di-electric grease on the pins for the LCD. This will help the crappy connection.

I can post pics if you want.

I need to do a valve check, I understand how to do it but I'm not sure about the TDC part, does anyone have info/pictures on how to do that?

There's a timing mark on the camshaft, you'll see it when you are looking down on it right by the timing chain gear. Also, the holes will line up that allow you to remove the rocker arm shafts when you're at TDC.

There are 3 holes in the cam shaft gear. You turn the crank shaft CCW until the center hole is about at the 8mm bolt that holds the cam shaft in. Shine a light through this hole, there is a small line on the cam shaft and a small line on the camshaft retainer. When they line up, you are at TDC. Sorry I don't have a pic.

Here's a pic of the timing mark:



And the hole alignment

There is TDCF and TDCE... you will want to line up the crank mark as well...as you want TDCF---firing...all valves closed.

I just wiggle the rocker arms, if they have some slop then I know I'm at TDCF.

I don't bother even lining up marks but I figured the new guy would be safer doing it the factory way

The cam shaft rotates 1 time for every 2 times the crank shaft rotates. So if you line up the cam shaft mark, it will always be TDC firing.

good point. Was thinking about the valve adjustment procedure of the 950's where you have to pull the cams out to get at the buckets. Forgot that the cam stay in place in the 690 motor...makes life a lot easier.
