"How to" on degreeing cams, should I?
I am going to degree to cams on my old motor that is going to Williamhbonney.
The camera sprockets are APE adjustable gears and the carriers are already pressed on to the cams. They are ones I sold to Sleeper750 and were sent back to me for the install.
The reason I am asking about the write-up, is because I have sold several sets to forum members, and to my knowledge none have been installed.
I attribute this to several factors; one being the general mystery that surrounds the mechanics of it, another being the cost and fact that most people don't have the tools (TDC stop, degree wheel, dial indicator with magnetic base, pointers, etc), also there is a general sense that "numbers" are guarded by tuners.... And they are.... A great deal of time and money goes into coming up with numbers that work, and are often secretive(although as bikes get older like ours its not such a secret). Also, if you jack this up, even a little, say goodbye to your top end.
This is one of those things that I would typically keep to myself, as no one taught me, there was no Internet, I had to teach myself............. But since T WISTEDMISTER thinks I am such a Dick for not revealing everything I know when asked...... and WILLIAMHBONNEY asked me to document it, if you are still reading,
Are you interested? Should I do a write up?
