Marking the cams is good but try a zip tie on the cam that you aren't moving just to be sure it stays put...
Yeah, the actual shim replacement is about the easiest part of the job!Yeah I kinda daisy chain zip tied the cam chain to the handlebars seems to be working fine. I was going to zip tie the cam to the chain and just move it out of the way, but they are solid cams, I didn't really see anyway to do that so I just removed them. I just finished replacing all the shims. Well it took me a while but it was not as bad as I thought it was going to be. Kinda enjoyed it to be honest. Going to put it all back together tomorrow morning.
As for the broken cam plate bolt, i'm not going to do anything about it, I cant go to the store and buy an extractor anyway everything is closed. 20 bolts hold that thing on if missing 1 bolt screws up my engine well then at least I'll learn a valuable lesson lol.
I can't see the letters/numbers real well but...is this all I have to do to get it back in time?
