From joy to drama

In the lead up to my first start-up, I noticed that the final engine part which was the cam chain tensioner would't fit!

As it turned out the rear cam chain guide was installed upside down. The pitfalls of trying to build an engine in one loooooooooooong day!

It was also challenging to creatively remove the guide without cracking the cam chain as I didn't have a replacement master link.

So long story short, I had to completely dissasemble the bike, strip the top-end of the motor, and rebuild it again.

My brother, Thomas and Reynolds did such an amzing job to help me knock it over as quickly as we did.
