DUTY CAM CHAINS
Extra heavy duty cam chains are recommended to help eliminate chain breakage which can result in extensive engine damage. APE carries the highest quality cam chains available, and at a price usually less than a new stock chain . Equally at home is a stock street bike of all out race bike. Don't chance expensive engine damage. Replace that cam chain.

CAM CHAIN IDLER ADAPTER
adapter allows the use of a GPZ1100 or 1000J model cylinder head
on the earlier KZ900 / 1000 lower end. It maintains the roller
style cam chain. This is the only modification necessary to install
the late big valve head on the early motor. Use with oem KZ sprocket
or the high performance version at the right.

CAM CHAIN TENSIONER GUIDE
This is the guide in the back of the block
that the tensioner pushes against. Racers know that the stock
guide is always breaking or the rubber gets torn up by the chain.
This new guide is made from space age composites with a very
low drag co-efficent. Helps keep cams in time for more power.
