can I get some cheeze with this whine?

Pretty much anything not covered by the topics above. Short lived production bikes or vehicles, Electrical, Tires, Paint, Brakes, etc. Use this for tech questions, and "Shoot the Bull" for general conversation, no tech.

Can we at least suppose that it is not really your 'lower end' that is now making noise, but just your cam chest, since that is all that has been changed?
For some reason, everyone wastes money and buys a cam with a gear on it, instead of using the one they have, that fits! (Stock gears press on to Sifton and other makes of aftermarket cams, and they will sell it economically 'as is', but Andrews insists on gougeing that extra bit to sell the gear , too. And they are damn "cheesy" profiles to tune for, also.
Can you press your original gear on your new cam?...Cotten
