Just got my HotCams autodecompressor and wondering how hard of an install it is. New to 4 strokes and never messed with cams/valves on a bike.

Anything to watch out for?
Any special tools? (dont plan on trying to adjust timing and will assume its ok)

How is the shimming process - do I need plastigauge or just feelers?

Putting the cam in is easy, get a good inch pound torque wrench and a set of feeler guages. Follow the manual and take your time.
