exposing cam gears?

Is this simply done as rice? does it have any real advantages?

there are adjustable cam gears (when you get them).. having them exposed in order for you to tune them to your specs will be advantageous to your needs rather than having to take off the timingbelt cover everytime you want to change your timing. i am not very sure how it works, but im very sure thats the idea behind it all..

It's just done as a way to quicker access adjustable gears.

In all reality, it's probably a bad idea to leave some of those critical parts open to conditions.

+2 for only adjustable cam gears, the cover is there to keep dirt and grime out and help keep the longativity of the timing belt. Having the cover left off with standard cam gears will result in laughter :twisted:
