I finished up the ride side this afternoon.

I found that not only is the oil important, but keeping the chain extremely tight (more than you think you should) will also help out a whole lot. Luckily I found two mechanical chain tensioners online for cheap. They made this process so much easier.

On the right side instead of having to over compensate (choose a higher value) than the left side, I had to under compensate (a lower number than I wanted). It ended up being so spot on that I only had to go down one degree (started at 1.69 and achieved 1.70).

The crazy thing is, I put the guage back over on the left side and the timing actually changed a degree to 1.70 which worked out perfect!

I will be sure to check all the timing again after the chain tensioners go in.

Thanks again for everyone who gave thier input. I do hope this thread will help out others just like it did for me!
