Go For It

Looks like that would be your next step. Always check piston to valve clearance when doing this mod. Take to reputable engine builder if you think it is to much to handle on your own. Good Luck.

Not Much

Rough estimate maybe 5 to 10 hp if you play with cam timing. Order the exhaust cam with springs while your at it. Then you will be all warm and tingly inside!

Intake Cam#49118-0034
Head gasket 45 mm part #1004-0023

Good luck finding the cam right now. Last I heard it wasn't available through Kaw. Get with the forum sponsors and see what they can do for you if your local Kaw dealer can't find one. Or maybe a member here has one for sale. The cam should be under a hundred.

I already have both, just not to sure if I wantto spend the money on something that is not worth doing. My buddy has a 04 zx10r and he was not happy with cam, he told me to just degree the stock cam. I dont know what I should do.
