That cam certainly had some flakeage but I had never seen one get that bad before it was looked into. I have only seen I think three cams go bad on airheads and one of those was on my own bike. I think BMW's have damn good cams. I have worked on other brands a lot less and seen a lot more of them suffer cam wear than I have BMW's. Coastranger, I didn't read Anton saying anything about how they hold up. I was going to ask him if he has revisited any of them yet and, if he had, how they are holding up?
