    Plonk a set of RR cams in it..!  :164: :028: Just sayin'. :016:

    The Gen-1 R also has an identical engine so a set of cams from the R will also be a direct swap.

    If the cam lobes are done for the rockers/followers will be munted too....best to check them all.....or buy a complete head from a wrecked bike.
