Has anyone a recommendation for a 450's cam follower resurfacing service incl. prices. The camshafts on my project seem to be ok, so I would just have to send the followers.
Thanks Tom. Think it was something like 250$ incl. the two cams on an exchange program basis but I can't find it anymore on the CMC website. I'll check deltacam.Delta (deltacam.com) does decent work for a very affordable price compared to MegaCycle. CMC supposedly has gotten into the mix, but I don't know their pricing or work quality as yet.
Not at all surprised to hear that price from CMC, they tend to be higher on lots of stuff. Be advised that the email link you find at Delta's website may not work (hasn't in a long time despite them being aware). You might have to call them if things take a bit longer than quoted, they're a pretty busy group. Also, they clean up your cams (as opposed to exchange for your core) and the last price I got from them recently was $65 per cam and $6 per follower. As for communication, if all else fails go to FB and look for Jon Bodwell, he's the owner, and PM himThanks Tom. Think it was something like 250$ incl. the two cams on an exchange program basis but I can't find it anymore on the CMC website. I'll check deltacam.
Are you talking about the pivot point of the follower where the adjustment shaft goes through it? The FSM has a wear spec for it. I've personally never seen one worn beyond usable in that areaI have more questions.
How much wear of the bearing surface of the follower is too much?
It's actually a 5 picture gif... and no one else has commented on it as yet, good or bad. It's a combination of my CL450 from high school, my old 450 drag bike, my current 450 brat build, my first CBX, and me last year with a 6 month beard. I know that when I have 2 posts in a row, it's funny to see them both moving in time with each other on the left of the screen... just trying to do something different - sorry about the detrimental effects!Btw, I dig your three-photo avatar but I suffer seizures when it's on my screen! LOL
