rode the bike to the local shop yesterday, burrrr cold. tomorrow we start the instalation of the gear drive cams. worked at the shop for the owner while he took time off (just a counter guy, write workorders and take money). well my payment is here and now we are going to install it. Rick said I was to do all the work and he would supervise. let you know how this goes. been reading the service manual on the disassembly and the S&S manual on the install. Rick said I should be ridding by afternoon, we'll see. update this thread Tuesday.
