Are the Magna motor's cams geared or do they run off of chains?

Chain I WISH it was a gear driven timing setup. I too love that gear drive whine. The VFRs are badass, basically like a more performance take on the V4.

Bike is AWESOME. Yellow I wasnít expecting, and that looks great. The wheels scream 94í. The bags will make it look tough.

The hub problem.. i guess a torque wrench is too far into the future for some..
I like the "blade" style of wheels from back then, sleek and sexy. I think the bags I want are going to be a tight fit, if they fit at all because of the exhaust.

It made me a little sick to my stomach when I saw how bad the hub and bearing was, didn't make any noise at all though which is the weird thing about it, no indicators at all to say that it was bad.

I don't know either, it's fixed now though. 1 new hub, 2 new wheel bearings, and new brakes. I went with the powerstop slotted and drilled to lower brake temps and keep from warping them in the future, ceramic pads to generated less dust and bite a bit harder. This coupe will stay as stock, DD while i build the CB.
