It's always cool to see one of the great "K" series being reborn. Keep up the good work.

While at the races friday I got to see some KHK came lobes that are now being produced. Wow are they nice. so no worries if you find a bad lobe or 2 or 4.

These were just lobes not full shafts so you'll need to cut the old lobe down press the new lobe on the shaft and dial in the centerline and tack in in place then weld or braze it.

Oh same Gent. has Peek manifold seals too. $40 ready to use! I've got a set on the way for my K.

Thanks 44,

You didn't say anything about my Royal Enfields getting first, second and third places in the Brakeless class.

The PEEK Seals and Magneto caps are all stock items. The cam lobes including the KHK profiles are 3-4 weeks delivery. They are made to order due to the many profiles I produce and the different lobe angles for each model.

The lobes are designed to be a press fit on the shafts and only need 3 tack welds about 1/4" long. They should NOT be brazed. Instructions are on my website @ http://enfieldracing.com/doc/INSTRUCTIO ... ESrev1.doc

Yes the flying Endfeilds did in deed do VERY well! :P :D

I remeamber the 1st time we meet 8-9 years ago at the Bangor 1/2 mile. I was in awe then and still am now.

I got my seals today in the mail. Not sure when I'll find time to put them in but it is on the top 10 so i can report back as to there fit.
