Camshaft change

Postby yoland » Tue Aug 07, 2012 11:03 am



Hi I need to change my right camshaft on my 1980 goldwing . I found one on eBay ..My question is do I have to change both ? The engine has only 40 000 km .I don't know the mileage on the camshaft I bought but I looks in good shape..

You don't need to change both , unless both are out of specs. And you should check the "new" one to see if it is within specs too. that info is in the OEM shop manual.

Thanks, for the reply, I don't have the oem shop manual , the one that I bought is from a 1980 goldwing..
