Cam timing

Not had the bike long and it had just had a replacement front head fitted by an unknown engineer who is not familiar with storms (said he followed the haynes manual). I fitted MCCT yesterday and am 100% certain that the cams have not moved, it will still not rev past 7000 in use although it runs wel...

Got manual CCTs ...
