Any place with a press should be able to do it. I'm guessing you are putting slotted sprockets back on the cams so you can degree them?

Well if you can't find someone close to you to press them on and off let me know and I can do them for you. What lobe center numbers are you running and on what bike?

Wow where did you read about that swap? I would measure your cam lobe centers as they are now and start there unless you have a recommended starting point from a known good tuner. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish you will adjust the cam lobe centers from there. The intake cam will yield the greatest results per degree of movement because it changes the cranking pressure of the engine. Just be careful because it doesn't take much movement to cause valve to piston contact.

That was a pretty good read. I think the 107&109 center lines would be a good place to start.

Anyone have any good idea's where to get a cheap like really cheap cam degree tool. I really don't want to spend 100+ on a tool that I am going to use this one time.

This isn't really something to cheap out on. If you are off by as little as a few degrees there will be very bad consequences. If you already own a positive stop and dial indicator you can get a degree wheel for cheap from parts unlimited or any motorcycle shop. My kit is from web cams and is a really nice setup and trust me you will use it more than once because when your friends find out what you're doing and see the gains they will want you to do there bike as well.

Yeah I am looking into it. Should have built this into the cost I guess.

Well just make sure to turn it over by hand before starting it. Then after it's warm run it through the rpm range SLOWLY while listening for any piston to valve contact. It will sound like a slight valve tick unless you rev the shit out of it then it will be a good paper weight.
