Re: "How to" on degreeing cams, should I?
I should be done tomorrow morning. Will do the write up next week. I will explain what I did, but not go all into everything about cam and valve overlap, and theory, just what is necessary.
I set my degree wheel up, pointers, found TDC using positive stop method, verified cam timing and lobe centers on stock setup 113 and 109,checked valve clearances since I last did it about 3.5 track days ago when I got head back from APE and did a bench clearance with full radius valve job and considerable seat material was cut away. Surprisingly, since I broke that motor in on the track in expert group hard, only one valve needed adjusting (. 08 and clearance range is. 1-.2, so I set to. 13). Reassemble with cams with adapters, timed with marks, and went from 91 to 94 to 101.5 LC in two steps, quite for night.
[QUOTE=senator8]Haha! You're more than 1%. My bike ran perfectly all year. All I did was oil changes and thumbed the starter. While my competitors had bikes and carbs in pieces at the track I was enjoying a coffee and saying "thanks Chris"
