Not an awful lot of space there, for that to work.Hi guys,
Does any one know if roller cam followers have ever been made for a Rapide. it seems that if the engine has a weak spot, it is cam and follower wear, so I was thinking of making a set to see if this helps solve the problem.
I`ve a picture of those cams somewhere, imagine a square with one curved side.Clem Johnson's 'Barn Job' drag bike had roller followers, and I'd imagine different cams to suit. Mike Parti obtained a set of crankcases discarded by Clem, already modified for roller followers, and built it up into a complete motor, retaining the roller followers.
