Cylinders 1 and 2 not working

Actually I've done that already. After setting the timing marks with the new belts I cranked it over a couple time to verify the timing marks.

Has it fired up yet?

I would be surprised that the engine had run and not bent up those valves on the idle camshaft when the pistons were still running.

Most common quote from a cager after killing a motorcyclist.

"I never saw him" instead of "I never looked for him".

Roleketu if that camshaft stopped so that the pistons did not hit the valves this has the makings of a Genuine GL1200 Classic Wing Timing Belt Legend. Tongue
