    Cam advice

    So I want to get a cam for my 2017 stock bore Grom but am not sure which one to go with.
    I have a PC5 and WB2, Yoshi exhaust, and intake. I will also be Roadracing it. That's why I'm keeping it stock bore.
    Any noteworthy experience with what you guys have with running a cam via acceleration, top speed and idle are appreciated. I'm currently leaning toward either the Koso or the Chimera cam.

    Per steady garage's site:
    Note: Send in your old camshaft and get a $15 core credit!
    [sarcasm]wow, what a deal![/sarcasm]

    If you want power, DCR is really the way to go. I believe it makes a little less power than stock in the low/low-mid, but it is crazy 7k+.

    We sell A LOT of DCR cams, and use them often. Early in testing, we went from 8 to 12hp, on only intake, pipe, DCR, and Bazzaz with our custom map.

    DCR cam, that's what I'm going with when I do a cam swap myself! Majority of people who go with a cam, go with DCR.

    Does the DCR cam work with the Finbro upgrade head and stock piston?
