Question: this is my exhaust cam. It has a seal pressed next to where the chain goes. But only one side is left. And the intake cam is missing both. Is this okay?

It's a damper rubber, you can run them without it.
They get old and can break up and end up through the engine anyway.
Yah, that's probably what I've been finding bits of. Should I pull the other one, so the chain sits evenly?
I'd be thinking if ones is gone the other won't be far behind?
I'd take it off.
Mine were taken off when the cams were reground, and I don't intend to replace them.
Apparently you'll get a small amount of extra chain noise, but no other issues..... This is according to others on the twins forum who have removed them.
Cool. Sounds good to me
I have replaced mine however thet are only there to supress noise, it's not an issue if they are not replaed.
Have you run without them Nigel Harris ?
Just wondering how much more noise you get?
Not personally Glenn as I saw that mine were about to go so I replaced them at that time. However I know several that have and its not a lot different. Just a little more top end chatter, not a lot really.
Bet that's what I found in my engine as well. Interesting.
