hi. welcome to the forum! the problem with camshafts is they like to sell them with a head. that way its a complete head. you could try ebay, or calling around to some junkyards, maybe try a co that re-manufactures heads? maybe youll get lucky and theyll have one.a cam from the x20xev motor should be exactly the same the only problem with that is its only sold in Europe. you could also try asking people over at www.daewootechforum.com lots of engine building over there maybe someone has a spare. you could get one at Suzuki Car Parts Catalog Online Store but itll be brand new and i think expensive. any other questions just ask.

Wow that is unfortunate... I may be able to sell you just one camshaft.

Where are you located?

Stchuna. Make sure that you find out what caused that cam to snap.

Dropped a valve or cam drive component failure / jam, would be at the top of the list. Cams don't typically snap without a cause.

Definitely not normal for a cam to just snap. Strangely enough this is the second one that's been posted about on the forum.

Interestingly enough, there was someone local in my area who also snapped a cam... I have no idea how it happened though. I sold a replacement cam from my spare motor to him, so I still have one cam left lol.

stchuna - so you don't need the cam now right?

Well someone posted an article, Nathan I think, about how Suzuki was getting screwed by their parts suppliers, GM suppliers I think. They started using inferior parts to build the cars. One of the reasons their GM partnership went south and their US sales. Maybe there's some bad cams floating around.
