Shit. After all this there is no way I'm not doing the mod. My problem is that bike is still in warranty and I am not a big fan of voiding that by removing the engine head. Plus that I am a do-it-yourself kind of guy but never changed camshafts in my life before, so I am a little apprehensive of screwing up the swap and messing up the bike. Should be pretty straightforward right? Either of you did a write-up back when you did the mod? If not, would you mind putting together a quick-and-dirty how-to on the subject? Or at least point to a reliable how-to on it?
EDIT: Also, I just remembered something. I did look into possible sources for purchasing the camshafts some time ago, just to get a rough idea on prices. I cannot remember the exact sellers, but I do remember that at least some of them we selling what they were calling "race" daytona camshafts. Anybody knows more about this? Is is just a misnomer or there actually are proper "racing" profiled daytona camshafts on top of the regular daytona ones? I suspect both of you installed the regular, "street" daytona camshafts? I might actually start a new thread about this after I look into it again.
I posted this. It was a good bit of trial and error at first. But I tried to cover as much of that as possible in the write up. https://www.triumph675.net/forum/showthread.php?t=177754
