The things people do

Today I was at the bike shop. A 999 was in for rough running. The guy had asked his mate to fit some u-bewt cams for him, and he did. He didn't bother to re-do the shims. As a result the cam lobes had 5mm flats ground into the tops of the lobes. Rockers were destroyed, metal all through the engine. One 999 totaled! Sad.

What had he done to his mate to deserve that ?
