{sadly} Last I heard, Steve had no cams in stock, and no longer makes the 7th gear unit.
Call him to confirm..

Ride safe,Ted

I do believe Ted is correct on both counts.  I think Steve still has the modified exhaust cam gear  and of course the 3 Minute Mod. Those things plus the bafflectomy do   yield some impressive  results. It did for me.

I think he quit doing the 7th gear because the parts became increasingly hard to find.
Unsure exactly which parts are needed, but know they come from another Kawasaki Motorcycle {Voyager}.
  One thought is to find/buy the parts yourself and ask if he'll do the conversion.
  But, a concern is "he moved and may not be set up to do the machine work".

NOTE: I am not speaking for him. You would have to talk with him first.

Ride safe, Ted

Hi Ted ,
  I am pretty sure No more 7th gear units  even if the parts were sourced from the old 4 cylinder  Kawasaki Voyager.  The only way to find one is a used unit parted out from a  non running Concours 1000 which would be very rare indeed. Many times the person parting out the bike wont even know.

I had emailed Steve. He is not doing the cams or the 7th gear anymore. I had offered to send parts off my bike to him and indicated I was not in a rush, like if it took 8 weeks I would be fine waiting.

I have a friend who purchased the 7th gear mod and never installed it.  I'll contact him and put him in touch.

Also sent you a PM

Instead of the Torque Cam, I suggest; buy his Performance Exhaust Cam Sprocket.
It increases torque by changing cam timing. The effect is very similar to what his torque cam does.
But it does it for less work and less $$.
