I have a 93 gsxr 750 and the timing is off. Can anyone tell me how I can fix this problem?

How do you know the timing is off if you don't know how to fix it? The only way to check it is to take the valve cover off.

FWIW: The only way for that to happen is for a cam to slip a tooth, or the cams to be installed incorrectly. If it is off by, say, two or more teeth, you will be bending valves.

some people can just hear. I can hear when my 69' chevelle's timing is off by 4 degrees or more. I would probably hear that in my bike after driving it awhile,but would not know how to adjust as i have not worked on it at all yet. This is easiest place to ask.

'93 GSX-R and a Chevelle are two different animals. My point being, very RARELY is timing off on a motorcycle. Serious damage usually occurs when it is.

Normally there are several other factors that make the motorcycle "sound" or act like the timing is off when it isn't.
