Thanks I need to go back and add a few things. I got a TW-555 cam since when I bought mine the TW-222 wasn't released yet and the TW-555 was what worked. I have only gotten to go for one ride since I did the cams due to winter type weather.

I took my time doing it and spent 3 days total working on the bike. I can only work about 4-6 hours at a time and then I have to take a break.

Keith told me 4 turns for the preload which would be 24 sides. Wonder which it should be?

So I finished the install last night with mostly the help of this forum. Started up fine but a little rough on idle. A lot of fluctuation in idling. I'm using a pcv with a new map from fuelmoto. Do I just need to tweak my map or did I miss something? If I need to fix something on the map I am absolutely clueless but willing to learn.
