Pitted rocker arm bearing

Recommended Posts

I went to check my valves last night and noticed the rocker arm bearing that interfaces the cam lobe is pitted all over. Is this normal or should I replace it when I reshim the valves?

thanks for the help!

Not normal. That thing is bathed in oil and moving constantly, so I'm not sure how yours is pitted. Did the bike go a long time without being ridden?

Thanks for the response. No, it didnt go along time without being ridden, but it did go about an hour without engine oil. I fell and must have hit a rock, and didnt notice the small hole in my engine case by the shifter until I was done riding. I bought a new case and everything seems fine, minus the roller bearing! Should I replace the cam too, it looks ok but is it something like chain and sprockets, dont replace one without the other?

Gotta love honda reliability, no oil and still no seizure. :cry:
