Intake Cam & Cam Cap

Recommended Posts

I have a frozen intake cam, and the cam cap and cam are marked up pretty good. I'm guessing I need a new cam and cap? In searching the online parts fiches none of them have a part # for the cam cap, it's included as part of the entire head assembly. Can the cap be purchased separately or must the whole head assembly be purchased? Further, if I can purchase the cam and cam cap, will I need to have repair work done on the head?

Complicating matters is I'm scheduled to leave on a three week riding trip a week from today. Are there generally local repair options available or is this a process only a few companies perform?

Engine Dynamics are one of the best. I am sure they can fix you up waaaaay cheeper tha a new head also. Probably under $200.

EDCO can take care of the head repair, but you will still need to get a new cam. When you reassemble the head, back down the torque on the cam journals to 5ft/lbs(60 in/lbs) instead of the 8 ft/lbs the manual calls for. Tdub

Thanks for all the help guys. Due to time constraints I'm going to buy a new head (a buddy gets excellent discounts at a Yamaha shop), then get the damaged one repaired and sell it once the big riding trip is over. I'll be sending it to Engine Dynamics. The approximate cost of repairing plus one-day shipping both ways was going to approach the cost of a new head so I figured this was the best course of action.

The booger of the whole situation is that I do have a good torque wrench but figured my buddy did as well. Turns out his was not Scottish, and thus crap.

We'll be using my torque wrench this time.
