-exhaust cam #14120-292-013
-gearshift shaft/spindle #24610-292-040
-kick starter pinion gear #28212-292-040

*EDIT* - I found a kicker gear...one down/two to go

I have seen no less than 5 intake cams go up and sell on EBay since I posted this and not one exhaust cam... :evil:

Can anyone tell me why exhaust cams seem to be sucha rare beast????

For exactly the reason you need one...It's usually the ex cam that goes bad first....

....yeah but why man???? :geek: :ugeek: :shock:

mine is crap because the PO smashed the casting around the sprocket...not because of uneven or excessive wear.

While I wouldn't run that cam on a customer bike, I'd feel OK running it on mine IF the sprocket itself isn't damaged..... I'd dremel another "chip" on the opposite side to re-balance the assembly....

Funny you should say that....check out the other side.
But it's not exactly opposite and I recall the left side cam bearing showing uneven wear so I think I will hold out for a new one and hang on to this one for an emergency spare. ;)

I didn't mean the other side of the sprocket, I meant the other side of the camshaft (to restore static balance)...Looks like it would require work on both "other" sides of the sprocket.......And, I'd replace the doubtful cam journal.....

AHHH...the 'other' other side. :D
I see what you mean...static balance = rotational balance :idea:

I can only suppose the damage seen here was done by someone trying to peen the cam chain master link with a hammer and missing. Isn't this usually done on the intake side tho???

Yes, intake side is usual.
But that's because most people are right handed - Honda set things up so a single guy to do everything, and it makes more sense for a righty to do it from the intake side.
Otherwise no real reason....
