I think the cam slop is a common problem with the V-Rod. I have heard that this happens all the time. Just like jlbait posted in his link, you have to make the final adjustment after you measure because of the slop. I have had my rear axle off a dozen times so far. No thread damage but I do have slop. My axle bolt holds fast at 103 ft/lbs and has never moved.
