Aligning the upper and lower parts of the crankcase Note

When assembling, make sure that there is no offset between the crankcase halves on the facing surface (on the oil pump side).

1. Using a plastic hammer, align the slightly tightened lower part of the crankcase (tightening torque 10 - 20 Nm / 7 -15 ftlb.) with the upper part of the crankcase. Carry out the finger-nail test at the joint.

2. Tighten the crankcase with the specified tightening torque (3 stages).

3. Smooth any slight remaining offset at the joint with oil stone.
