Donsy;

You want worn cams? I have some?

cam break in is extremely important.......

I'll go talk to the Camfather and his son Richard

my '05 1000S has brand new cams and buckets .....all black and not a mark on them

Something is up at 16,000+ mi......and the cam bearing blocks were over torqued too

I'll see if they'll do a spectrographic analysis of the coatings

:popcorn:

YES, not fun.
Weirdest was we did not notice the dented cups until dismantled. Even some with worn cups were in spec measuring valve clearance.
list price each cam 1100€ valve cups 35€ each. and going for all 16 as i don't want the new cams with used cups.

We will measure (hardness) the old material and compare to the new parts for archiving and future use
