Cam repairs complete.

Hey there guys. For those who may be aware, I thought my CCT had broken on the bike and caused the chain to eat the engine, turns out I was wrong. There was a 16mm bolt "missing" from the end of the cam, this dislodged the chain which destroyed the guides, chain, exhaust valves and piston. I've been without the beauty for 3 weeks but thanks to a cracking mechanic she's back on the road and is better than ever. I'm gonna chuck a pic on of how she looks now as she's in for paint at the end of the month. Ford Panther Black Metallic is the choice at the moment with powdercoated rims to match but hey, I'm open to good ideas. Just put some new polished bars on too!

Be safe guys!

That's cool, at least it wasn't the catastrophic failure we all dread hearing about!

I hope you found the "missing bolt" and it's not waiting somewhere downstairs to bite your motor in the ***.
Knock on wood!
