Gasket & Cams
Okay I've researched the heck out of this and I know some of us are very interested in performing this to our bikes.
The most important thing to this is having the correct tools...summitracing.com offers a kit for $85 (part no. SUM-G1056) whereas holeshot racing offers one for $266...Summit ensures me a degree wheel is a wheel, they offer the measurement device in the same .001" increments as webcams and offer the magnetic base just as webcams does. The only other issue is a positive stop device which can be ordered from holeshot for $25 or something; I'm 99% sure you would only need the 12mm ones because I think the plugs on a japansese bike are 12mm. Webcams offers a kit and their number has been busy for two days now so I dont have a price on that kit. Summit also said you can take an old spark plug and remove the electrode and place a steel dowel rod in there to use and that is at a minimal cost.
I'm going to try and make this thread a complete parts listing of everything that will be needed including costs, etc.
I also have skads of links on how to do stuff, it really does not sound hard at all once you understand the theory of finding TDC and measuring for .050" of lift on the BTDC when the lobe moves and .050" of lift ATDC part of the lobe.
If you all want information just let me know in this thread and I will post all of the links here.
If and when I do this I will do a pictoral like El Diablo has done to let those of us who are timid to know it shouldn't be that hard.
