The Jester Mafia Never Sleeps

That's right, the Jester Mafia never sleeps...last night at around 0300 Hrs Local Time...the Jester Mafia West Garage was open for business. I know this because George sent me a text at 0530 Central Time...thanks Bro. Jester Mafia West crew member David was at Rocketman's garage installing rearset controls on his Roadster. These are the rearsets from Shane at Chainsikle:

Cannibal Queen Back In The E.R. For Some Minor Surgery

So the Jester Mafia detected some noise from George's sled during the heat cycles. Not wanting to chance any major damage, it was decided to pull it back apart a ways and see what the problem was. Turns out that when using the Hammer .600 cams which have a slightly smaller base circle...that the lifters were making contact with the cam bushings. 

So off with some parts:

Pete prepping the bike for some corrective surgery:



Tank and front rocker cover removed:



More top end components removed:



Exhaust and cam cover removed:



Measuring the Hydrosolid lifters for clearance:



Clearancing done in the cam chest:



Pete refitting the cams:



Cams re-installed:



Re-torquing some stuff:



Check back later, hopefully it will get fired up again tonight...
