    Yeah! no I've not changed the fuel filter on this bike an it's probably time since
    it just turned over 50k an I only had it for about 5k and don't know the history
    on it.

    A NAPA Gold 3032 is the one you want. Be very careful torquing the base plate back onto the tank, very careful. I personally believe they don't take the recommended torque after snapping two of them off. :(

    So today we found the issue, after taking the cam cover off discovered the exhaust
    cam broken between the two exhaust valves on number 1 cylinder.
    The exhaust valves on the dead cylinders appear to all be closed but I can't be sure there hasn't been any piston valve interference.
    With summer coming on I'm glad I have more than one bike!

    I'll add another WOW. Perhaps that was caused by a small stress fracture that finally let go. Or a casting imperfection that weakened that area.
    The good news is that.......YOU NEED NEW CAMS!

    Ouch, hopefully the valves are all right, as well as the head. I hear there's a guy down under that makes a pretty spiffy set of cams for this bike.

    May as well get the 200 HP cams and pistons from Neville Lush Racing. Get his valve springs and retainers too. Oh you will need the LMS header and pipes too.
