The roads are Icy so I'm tearing stuff apart.. I desperately need a Manuel and will probably buy one in the next few days.

I am currently modding my 02' by replacing my 39mm narrow glide front end and putting on a newer style 06' 49mm front forks/trees/wheel, I would like to powder coat the trees and lower legs but need more cash and I still need a headlight and some new stem bearings and I will get started on the install.

I have 11K miles so I check'd my Cam shoes just last night and They are both worn. The rear one is worn by at least a third.. I am so glad I checked.. Now I need to buy the screaming eagle cam plate upgrade kit I guess..

How do I check run-out for installing cam gears? is that in the manuel?

I will also be looking into doing a big bore kit, not sure which one or to just have my Jugs bored out.

Any advice is appreciated.. Thanks

would also like following mods:
C&C fastback seat
west coast MX-T bars 10"
maybe a short flyscreen??
Performance machine grips



Here is my bike now

Nice looking ride. I will be installing the hydraulic tensioner upgrade soon too. I bought the Andrews complete kit and selected the 21N cams. Will prolly do the job next month, more or less. Still having occasional warm weather to ride in, so.....gotta wait.
Considering a BB kit too. Luckily there is a place nearby that has them, but I will first see what the new cams do
Have fun!

Thanks Dave, Im a bit nervous about tackling the tensioner upgrade. It looks like you pretty much have to buy the inner cam bearing puller and installer tool?? heres one on ebay that looks reasonable.

i did take my front end apart yesterday though. I just need to pick up a new bearing for the bottom and a dust washer for the bottom too, because I cant seem to get the old ones off of the 39mm..

The races look pretty good on in the neck and no noticeable wear, the bike only has around 11k miles, so I'm going to leave them in.

That is a good-enough price for the tool. You can use and then sell it to someone else who needs one. I bought mine from a guy on this forum who had it in the classifieds..

There are some good videos of the tensioner-upgrade on utube. Very helpful. If you don't have a service manual for the bike, it would be a good idea to get one. It will pay for itself quickly.

Have fun!

Dave
