ditto ,

im not a mechanic but if its supposed to take 2 hrs ,thatd be pretty fast to be able to pull the bodywork and tank ,pull valve cover ,swap the cams ,degree em so on and so on ,,2 hrs and not fuk anything up ?

its done when it gets done and theyll charge what it takes or do it yourself.

Should take about 2 hrs ...... easy to do on a ZRX since there is NO body work to remove. I'm no mechanic and I use crappy tools.

I can swap cams in less than 2 hours, no problem.
specially on a ZRX.

HSC,
Perhaps you should read up some tech manuals instead of giving wise arse replies to a guy just looking for help.

You give Canadians a bad name. :ghost

your probably all talk anyway.

2 hrs is about right, that's re doing the valve adjustments and tightening the can chain if it's possible.

Dude, I could do it, and I know how long it would take (very), but I'm not a pro, I know lots of good mechs, but not in Van, so I've a pretty good idea how long it "should" take. I don't want to let somebody start pulling pieces off and then billing me for 6 or 8 hours when I know it needn't take that long. Unfortunately this does(has) happen. Anyway, didn't mean to piss anybody off, peace

what's with the americans? go home. and any monkey can swap cams but if you're putting in some higher performance cams then it should take a fair bit longer than 2 hours. unless you trust the sprocket/carriers blindly of course then bang away and good luck.

1)You make americans soudn more ignorant then they already are. You have no idea who i am , if you did , you would know i am not canadian .

2) Perhaps reading "tech manuals" is where your problem started .

3) STAY IN THE US !!! cause in canada you might get your feelings hurt

HSC.....you're a jerk, plain and simple. Have fun with your 6 hour cam jobs. I'm sure they are just beating down your door with an attitude like that.

1) Your mother wears army boots.
2) Your mother is so tall she tripped on the Empire state building and bumped her head on the moon.
3) I Plan on it ...... well, except for my trip to Goose Bay this summer...
No Canadian has ever hurt my feelings. All the Canadians I have known are well mannered,repectable people. and they have the best smoke around... :rockon

WOW it felt like i just got attacked by a cat with no claws ! A jerk ? 6 hr cam jobs ? Mom in army boots ? Are you serious ? They should pass a law down there to keep the internet out of 3rd grade classrooms to keep you lil guys from posting . Seabass ,when youre parents bring you to canada on your summer vacation , i hope you get arrested buying "smoke" . Have fun finger painting kids :)
