Re: pushing the bike in gear

I think that using sixth gear will be easier.

Re: pushing the bike in gear

did you take the spark plugs out so you are not fighting engine compression?.

Re: pushing the bike in gear

I always put mine up to at least 4th or 5th when I'm checking valves. (Plugs out of course) Makes it much easier to turn the motor by one-handing the rear wheel while I'm sitting on the floor watching the timing marks in the left-side sight glass
