2007 ElectraI am in the process of finishing up the 300 mile check.I have adjusted valves, primary chain.... still takes some getting use to as the service manual said 0 lash at cold.,. It also said. .1 MM So a phone call later.. I learned something... I use the triwl method.. but not truly sure of what friction I should feel... it appears working on Enfields are an Art vs. working on the bikes I have had in the past.I digress My maintence question is about adjustment of the eccentric cam spindle which in one part of the book it says as needed while here it says during the first service..And It said to tighten the lock nut. once the desired backlash is reached.. well perhaps I should read deeper into this manual.. but what's the 'desired' backlash? And should it really be done in the first 300 miles?I also found with the seat and tank off that's a good time to check tightness of bolts.. my coil buried inside the frame near the gooseneck was swinging in the breeZe, a little locktite later Also , found a bolt without a nut at the seat frame..and I took gloss black paint like you get in those brush containers at auto places.. and everywhere there was a weld and a crevice where surface rust was starting , it got large globs of paint.So if anyone knows what the desired backlash is please pass it on.. thAnKs
