Anyone out there have the info on color identifiers for camshafts on Hinckley triples? Bought a '96 thunderbird that has a modified air box and what I believe is a full DynoJet carb make-over. Checking valve clearances, noticed green paint markings on cams. Bike runs really strong, big mid-range. Better than other same year, same bike. Cam swap is definite possibility, seeing as to other modifications. Anybody know color code markings on Thunderbird "Sport", Tiger, Trophy cams?

Stumbled across a good bit of info on "RAT" website on cam swaps. Turns out that 'green' cams are Trophy/Sprint/Speed Triple fitment. Accounts for why this bike feels so strong! (comparedto stock other bike). With DynoJet carb kit, runs really good!!!
