blown head and not the fun kind

Posted here before got alot of help from you guys hoping you will pull through for me again here. Pulled the engine out of my 2001 750 after having it knocking for a while and in the shop(****ty shop) only to find that my camshaft holder was cracked and the lobes on one of my camshafts were way past messed up. If anyone knows of a place i can get the cylinder head and the two cams for a good price or has a set they would like to sell me that would be great.

Try me. I have a cylinder head in good shape. Unfortunately, I don't have the cams as the teeth were very worn from the years of not knowing about the weak ACCTs on our bike. Let me get it cleaned up and get some pictures for you in the next day or two.

Now, do you need the whole head, or just the cam holders? I have some of those as well.

I have some cams. Pm me and I will look them over. Do they have to front and rear or are they all the same.

each camshaft is listed differently in the parts book.

Dave unfortunatly with everything I have read the cam holders and the cylinder head are machined to fit together so I cant just swap the holder from one head onto the another, but how ever the head also took damage and the cam holder cracked...lucky me.
