Does this cam look right?

Recommended Posts

I was hoping someone who is familiar with the 2006 CRF450R cam could tell me if this cut in the center lobe is supposed to be there. :) I have not seen it on other cams and I do not remember seeing it on my last valve check.

I can't say for sure, I've never noticed it, but then again I've never thought of looking at the cam closely when doing a valve job or adjustment.

That cut away looks pretty symetrical to me, looks man-made. If it is man-made, I wonder what it's purpose is?

I've got a cut like that on a 04 cam. It's for balance. Same theory in reverse order as using lead weights on a car wheel.

My counter balance gear has the same type of cut on it also.
