Kawasaki Bayou camshaft ?s

Hi guys hope someone can give me a bit of help. I recently purchased a 98 kawi bayou 400. It was running decent but had a bit of a tap/click and my buddy figured it was a bit gutless in the higher gears. So we pulled her apart (after adjusting the valves and still having the click) anyways the exhaust rocker arm (pad)? is very worn. The related camshaft lobe has very light wear..... intake rocker and lobe are good. Should I replace the camshaft? Both rockers or just one? anything else i should look at? We are gonna tear it right down and replace the piston rings and head gasket (former owner had both and threw them in). Anyways I am not a mech at all my buddy is more capable so forgive me any really dumb questions i might ask.

ps parts guy at local kawi dealer said that replacing the cam is likely not needed.... just lookin for some opinions
