I would wrap up a bag of dog shit and take it in to that shop and leave it on the counter.
You can get the cam for less than $100.00 if you shop around, and you can intall it yourself in less than 1/2 hour if you have half a clue.

$500.00 they are smokin crack and need to be shown the door.

bought my 03 Cam for $96 on TT. Local shop wants $180 to install, shim, adj. $500 is a rip off.

My 01 WR 426 is in the shop right now, because the vlaves are bent, suspected cam chain jumped time. Thanks to Thumpertalk, I am just now hearing about getting rid of the decompression lever by using the 03 cam and shim. DOES IT WORK? I am dieing to find out before they start to replace valves and so forth! They are a Yamaha shop, but I wanted your opinions first! Thanks! :thumbsup:

Did you use stock yamaha cam or hot cams? Any input? The yamaha shop told me hot cams was about $170, which was cheaper than yamaha stock.
I went to the Ebay link (THANKS nimiz1!), but someone already snagged it. I guess I'll fully commit and pay by dues so I can buy through TT!

Think about getting a Hotcams auto deco cam as well. I have one in my 01WR426 and it's been totally trouble free. I got mine a couple of years back for about $180 had The Racers Edge install it. It has been one of the best upgrades I have done to the bike.
