is clymer wrong

am i thick or what ? i am rebuilding my vn750 engine and when i read the clymer manual it say when counting the 38 links count up the right hand side for the front and the left for the rear there is a caution not on page 165 for the front cyl and page 172 for the rear cyl should this be the other way round ? i know we have different meanings for the same words in the uk but i am sure left and right are the same

If facing the front cylinder from the left side of bike you would count up on the left side. If facing the rear cylinder from the right side of the bike you would count up on the right side.

If you download the VN750 manual from here you will see the Kawasaki specs on page 4-18. I would do what Ma Kaw says to do.

Haven't dealt with this timing chain yet, but I will say I've found mistakes in some paperback manuals before. One had valve adjustment specs mixed up between two different engines, so you have to be careful.

Definitely look at the manual in the link.
