Question Degreeing cams??

What exactly is this, do you need adjustable cam sprockets or just adjust them? In what direction? How?

its kinda like if its one of those things that if ya have to ask its to complicated but I will tell ya whats done......Basically on the stock cam sprockets there is grooves that u can put the stock nuts in and make the cams need to know exactly what you are doing this because if you dont the engine will not perform well at all and can be fatal to the motor. Stock cams are degreed to 104 or 5 on the intake side and 102 on the exhaust I believe (intake might be higher) But when you use the kawi race intakew cam and degree them to about 106-107/102 you can gain some good power.

Try google searching how to degree cams, its a long complicated process.

I agree with garth285. But you can also do a search on the forums to give you an idea on degreeing. It really is not that bad, just do it right the first time.
