I was assured that it is "normal" and that miles will smooth them out without further issues. The tech did record this in the service records, just in case. Should I be worried? I asked if they took a picture of them, for the record, but they had not.heno42666 said:If there is pitting on cam lobes they need replacing the hardness has gone,or faulty, rapid wear will follow

My 600 mile service was 400+, which incuded oil change and valve check. No valves needed to be adjusted. Service department is seeing very little valve movement even on the second service.spalding12 said:the shop in miami (florida USA) charges over $115.00/hour
makes owning a ferrari seem cheap :smoking:
My reference to "pitting" reveals my ignorance. I understand from the mechanic and from JamesC's inputs (http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=2191) that it is more of a depthless etching. The cams remain smooth, just have the appearance of etches beneath the surface.heno42666 said:I have been in the motor trade ( trucks ) for many years now and if i strip a truck engine and found pitting yes i would be concerned and replace, i would not be happy to be told that they will smooth out. The lobes are hardend metal this stops it from wearing if it can `smooth out` then it its wearing,ask these guys in here i dont know about high performance engines, but pitting is not good.
