Just curious if anyone has tried them? I would like to know before I purchase a set. Also from what I understand the 04-05 cams will work in the 06-07. Is this true?

wow, i thought they were like the kawi race cams. But if theres that much work involved in just putting those cams in then i will wait to build the whole motor. Thanks for your input though!

Feel free to ask anything you need. Hope I can help.



Regarding the kawi race cams, I had one (int.) and it did not made a significant difference over stock.
I know that Garth achieved very good results with it in combination with a high velocity style head porting.
This means that, with the stock porting, the cylinders begin to discharge themselves at some point from BDC to the intake valve closing point.
Head velocity porting increases the intake charge velocity by reducing the diameter of a section of the intake ports (ventury effect). The increased velocity helps avoid the cylinders discharge at the end of the intake cycle.

Having to reduce the flowing capability of a head to make it work just means something´s wrong with that camshaft design, and related to the whole engine breathing process and components; from the beggining of the ram duct to the outlet of the exhaust pipe.
Kawi charged $84 for that int. cam for years, and that has to mean something..

Thanks for all the info! I also was wanting to know why people have their clutch welded? What is the purpose of that? Or should I ask what two components are coming apart?
