    Cam lobe limit?

    Whats the limit of cam lobe wear on sxv 450 cams? I read rxv cams once they are below 35mm are shot, do sxv have the same lift? Anyone know the height of them? Cant find answer anywhere and manual doesnt have it in limits section.

    Thanks Allen and the exhaust would you know? Do the rxv and sxv have the same lift at their peak?

    The exhaust side lobe rarely wears as there is a roller touching it instead of a mostly old type flaking lifter bucket where the lobe slides over

    The lobe size I can't tell you at the moment
    My bike is my gym, my wheelchair and my church all in one. I'd like to ride my bike all day long but I've got this thing called a job that keeps getting in the way.
