What are the extras on the camshafts?

Just checking the valves and noticed all the extra bits flapping around on the camshafts. Both exhausts have this centrifugal arm disc thing (though in different places) and I'm very curious what it is.



The intake cams have a post in the end (maybe a sort of counter balance? Oil flinger?)

The parts diagrams don't call them out individually, but their clearances are loose enough that I suspect they could be contributing a fair bit to the clatter while running. Does anyone know what they are?

Since there was no response to your question on this site, I took the liberty of posting your question on another V-Strom site, https://www.v-strom.co.uk/smf/index....7111.msg374599. Some knowledgeable members kindly responded with an answer to your question. One user posted links in their various replies may give an error message, but this is solved by making sure that the link with the error message ends with a .html

So it's basically added a slight amount of exhaust valve lift on the compression stroke to aid the starter in getting up to speed. That's awesome! Thank you so much for chasing down an answer.
