Yes you are correct, I'll be more specific. You need to slot the bolt holes in the flanges of the cams where the sprockets mount so the sprockets can rotate past the factory settings. Okay now that we have the procedure out of the way please address why you think you will be able to pre-degree a set of cams and have them work at their optimum compared to someone doing it with the motor in front of them considering all the variables.bobcat wrote:me thinks you are missing something here ! the CBX is unique in the fact that you cant slot the cam gears(sprockets) as the sprockets
are what the bolts thread into . the cam FLANGES must be slotted ,unlike any other OHC motor i have ever seen ! all others you slot the sprockets
as the threaded bolt holes are in the cam flange. with ALL DUE RESPECT, I submit that ,although i am a "newbe" to the forum , i have been around
the track a few laps ! if you feel the need to slot the cam gears, keep me posted !i'd like to know your procedure !
Again with all due respect, the cam adjustment (degreeing procedure) will be much more precise when done with the cams in the bike that they will eventually reside in, not in a mockup motor.
