TLR200 Cam Chain Guides

Recommended Posts

Hi - I have had some difficulty dating my TLR, I believe it is quite an early model, grey import from Japan to Oz.  Engine MD09E 1005839.

I decided to replace timing chain and guides ....no problems with the chain but the guides (Chinese off ebay) I have appear to be too short.  They have correct numbers ie: Replaces OEM Part Number: 14500-427-000 (Tensionser), 14550-427-000 (Guide)

But front guide only just sits in position and rear there is no way I can install top bolt .....at least 5mm short.  Do these stretch.  Pics below show old guides v new guides.  Base and head gasket are correct thickness.  Do you think they are just too short or am I missing something?

They look like they are just too short, and forcing them to fit wont be a good idea - could break when fitting, or worse still could break later when running

I would try and get some different ones personally

You can still buy new from Honda. Only way to guarantee a good fit in my opinion.
