lack of lubrication?  Have you torn it apart?  do you know how much oil pressure you were pushing in the system...anywhere.?  How could we possibly answer this with the info you have given?  how do you know it is cam frozen>? mileage, total history of the bike, mileage, maintenence?? do you have pix of the damage? have you repaired this system in a bike before?

     Check the oil filter, if it was installed backwards, it will deprive the cams of oil and will cause them to seize.

Re: what would cause my cam bearing to seize ..

Virago Tech Archive (YahooGroups) mailing list
I no longer have the first few post so I may be missing something. If your bike has the small oil lines that carries the oil to the heads you can loosen them some and see if you are getting oil to the heads/cams. Of course it is too late for that. If you look into the hole's to adjust the valves does it look dry or like you were getting plenty of oil. I don't believe you get a lot of oil up there anyway. If all the things you say were ok, it has to be a blockage somewhere or lack of oil pressure. If it was lack of pressure, at least to the bottom end, I would think you would have bigger problems then you do now.Think everything through again get back on the site again. These guys on here are smart, someone will figure it out if you can't. Let us know what you find. It will help others.

The oil filter on a 535 installs with the hole to the inside. On the
larger CC models the filter installs with the hole out.
