OK looking for a little info and sorry for asking because i know this has probably been covered a hundred times. I am taking my head to shop next week and i just bought the new valve retainers and keepers . Is there a place to get a mild race cam for cheap or possibly a 08 stock cam for cheap that anyone knows of . I am not up grading the bottom end just replacing the valve retainers that shattered and am on a small budget . also looking for suggestions on head gasket sizes , any info anyone has would be awesome , thanks again !!

Did your cam get damaged? Cheapest option would be a 0.50 HG from Kawi and degree your stock cams. The '08 race intake cam can be had new for around $100 if you did need/want to replace the intake cam.

I'm doin the same on my 1st gen, well and then some, but i'm tryin the 08 cam as well. I hope you went with stock retainers. Not Ti. I herd the Ti's break down pretty quick.

yeah you can stick with stock retainers as I think the part #s superceded to a newer # and are a little better. i put gen 3 retainers in as i had an extra set. I can probably get u the cam and .50hg pretty cheap. somewhere in the $115-120 range as i have for a few other members on here. pm me if interested

I was going to go ti on the retainers but i changed my mind when i ready up on the kawi race team
