    Heads up for camshafts in the UK

    If any one in the UK is interested in having camshafts reprofiled, Kent Cams in folkstone do 2 grinds. They have a road or track grind, havent got the spec on me but is online somewhere! I called around a few dealers only not to be shown to much interest, so when i realised they were not to far a way from me i called them direct! I took them to there factory in person and the guy who deals with the bike cams was very helpfull! they turned them round in 7 days and heres the killer! He charged me there trade price 80.00 yes thats 80 quid for a road tune!
    and seeing as my front cam had a big old chip out of a lobe, they needed some TLC anyway and that got ground away! so a big thumbs up for Kent Cams !

    cheers

            First dibs on all those bits when it goes pear-shaped.

                  Ive not had them done yet, but when he is back from his holiday this week, Roy Simmonds (engineering) will be doing them. He came highly recommended by the guy at Kent cams. He will be boring my barrels too! So ill let you know how it all goes!
