CAM SPROCKETS, CAM CHAIN, CAM CHAIN IDLER ADAPTERS



ADJUSTABLE CAM SPROCKETS

APE manufactures the original "billet" adjustable cam sprockets. APE sprockets are necessary for precise cam timing to achieve maximum performance.

APE sprockets are fully machined on the latest state of the art computerized equipment to precision tolerances and fully heat treated for extra long wear life.

APE cam sprockets are used by most leading racers who demand top performance along with the safety of not chancing their expensive racing heads to reworked stock sprockets.

HEAVY 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.

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.
