    When you pay someone (or a shop) to do something, it's always pretty costly. I don't know how much exactly but my guess is at least $150. If you are close(sp?) to me i'll do it for $100 and that includes a valve adjustment.

    Also, I wasn't aware they made cams for the ZC's...that's new news to me.

    Lol, that's barely an hour of work. Be a man and do it yourself. :) jp. Prolly an hour of labor, maybe 1.5 hours if the place you take it to is lame. so....maybe $100 -150. It's easy though, you should do it yourself.

    It could be considerably more than the others estimated. If someone charges you by the book, you would be looking at, on the low end, $250 or more. Shop around. Get it in writing.
