Hi guys,

Don't know exact how to start but I'm looking for some parts someone offered but I cant find it anymore.

I'm searching for some machined cam shaft caps so you can give your engine the RS look without the timing belt covers.
also the square part in between these caps.
Is there anyone who knows what I mean?


I'm not searching for the discussion if running without the covers is a good idea! ;-)

No like this!
The RS engine doesn’t have the timingbelt cover, so the caps behind the camshaft pulleys are different.

Now, there was a guy who offered these caps machined by himself, including the four bolt cap in between the pulleys.

Not sure for the actual cam holders but the middle plate should be symmetrical to the opposite side, just get one from the opposite head. So a vertical head left cover on the right side of the horizontal cylinder and vice versa. You could probably get the cam pieces custom machined, but you'll lose your timing marks...

you can either get very lucky and find the magnesium corse parts or pull your heads apart and machine them yourself.

Thanks Monkeyman89

Fab.., I do have that drawing as well..., do you have the RS part.nr?

Looney888..., I know they’re pretty rare but..., when you flip the OEM ones, you can see the exact shape as the RS ones.
And like my first message said.
The is a guy ( but where?) who is offering the machined ones.
I’m looking for these!!

exactly my point, with a set of std ones it's very easy to see where to machine them, an angle grinder and a dremel on a wet weekend and you would have them done in no time, paint them, install new bearings and o rings and reinstall.

The hardest part would be finding a set of std ones to do so you can do them at your own pace and then swap them over all at once....

I have a couple of spare sets for my RS bikes. Let me look and see if they have part numbers stamped on them.
