That is unfortunate, I thought that was a permanent fix. Are the cams being built back up and ground back down? Who is doing the cam work for you?

I thought you on a 3rd gen., do you have the V45 or V65?

I know the V65s had a cam oil issue, there is a fix to get more oil to the cam area, if you have the V65 are familiar with this?

That is quite a few, another Magna rider, Mike, has a high mileage Magna also, I don't know what he has done to keep it going but I don't know that it was much.

Have you had the bike long (are all those miles yours), do you tour on the Magna, are you planning on a lot more miles?

Not particularly, I use a HD Diesel oil and extended oil changes, others like synthetic, Royal Purple, auto non-conservative (can't remember what it says) oil or motorcycle specific oil.

What happened to your cams?
