looking at my Onza today i saw the development of cam lean.. It is very noticeable and only on the top cam is there anything i can do to take care of this. It looks like my whole limb is twisted.

In most cases cam lean is caused by twisting of the limbs forks. Once in a while a cam might be drilled crooked for the bearings but it's pretty rare. Considering that you have a binary cammed bow you can't straighten it out by twisitng a cable yoke. Any bow that has a cable rod/slide or roller guard and pulls the cables to one side can exhibit some cam lean. Unfortunately your best course of action is to take a few pictures of the problem, return the bow to your dealer to let him take a look, and go from there. One thing that can be done is to swap the limbs top to bottom and bottom to top and see if this helps. Barring that it may call for replacement of the limbs.

Can you post a pic? I'd like to see it. Barring that I'd say if you've been shooting it then continue to do so, but if I culd see it I could say for sure.

WW, both my Onzas have a little bit of lean on top. Came that way from the factory. It hasn't gotten any worse, and they both shoot very well, so I haven't worried about it. Worth keeping an eye on though.

Well im not having any luck with the picture.. my camera does not have a flash and i cant get enough light on my cam although it is very close to almost rubbing on the limb and my groups are about 4 inches to the left of center at 10 yards. I know i dont torgue my riser its been like that since i got it. it still shoots good groups but im sending it in early next week and my cheetah is gonna come out of retirement for a few weeks for my 3d league. ill try and get pics in sunlight tomorrow morning.
