Looks like I’ll have more time to play with this stuff. Just got made redundant. Can’t complain though. It was a good 37 year run.

Congrats on retirement Dan.  I'm sure you will enjoy it.  Takes a while to get used to the idea of your time is your own.

Dan what parts do you have available ?? I am interested in improving my 2016 300 Factory I have had a few times when I selected 2nd gear from a standstill & it popped out . Thought it was just my fault for not shifting properly !!

Got a few parts I could farm out. They come with no warranty, implied or explicit. All are the reverse bearing design so the bearing sits properly on the cam. The 13mm bearings are for the stock cam. The 16mm bearings may work on the 2018 factory and 2019 standard with the new cam design but I can't be certain as I don't have one to measure. The 16mm bearing does work with the custom cams the 12mm hole that the pedestal of the shift drum sits in is kinda snug due to machining tolerances so I had to hog them out to ~12.07mm with a sanding drum. Not precise I know but it worked. The green ink on one index hole is the position to put neutral between 1st and 2nd. The custom cam and 16mm bearings are now in my bike and one other "Beta" tester. So far he likes it.

Last Sunday was the shakedown for the new to me 2020 EVO factory. Popped out of gear several times just tooling around and once on a slab entrance in a section. Just put my cam and indexer in. Couple of interesting finds though. The factory cam now has pointy lobes and they put a spacer in to offset the indexer to better align with the cam just like my design. Beta still uses the worst bearing though and the neutral detent is still pretty shallow. Not my problem anymore.
