Cam issue...2017 GT

So, I ran out of the OEM warranty and took the bike to a Euro centered dealership here in Mesa for service and valve check. The front was good and when they took the rear one off they found serious wear on the exhaust cam. One of the finger followers broke and caused the wear. The only positive was ...

Re: PR5s

Is there much benefit to waiting on the Road 5 GT's? I am on Diablo Corsa #'s and they are pretty good...next set will be the Road 5's. And then I will be going to the Angel GT's again because I assume they are still the OEM tire for the GT
