I wonder how the lift and duration compare?

They quote the duration at 0.050" lift, which is the North American way to do it, but most everywhere else in the world quotes it at 1mm (0.039"). The factory service manual gives a really long duration, but I think it's seat-to-seat duration, which will always be way longer.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

I got in touch with them and specs have changed a bit to 248/241 degrees at .050" and 9.75/9.1mm lift.
Sounds like pretty good numbers, and close to what gsxr1k ´08 Yosh cams are for eg. (except for the lift that is taller in the Yoshs, but the gixxer has smaller valves than the gen1 10R)

I´ll try this set of cams and let you know how it turns out
