i know nothing about cams...

i think i saw cisco post about sending his cam in to get modified.

is that cheaper than just buying their cam?

DCR has them on sale for $160.


if i dont plan on doing BBK, do i need anything else when swapping out cams.

i'm saving up to buy a PCV in a few months, but if i get a cam, that will push the PCV purchase even further.

My top speed when stock was 68! now my top speed after doing airbox, exhaust, and windshield is 65!

i want to go up and not down in speed.

Is the DCR cam, just a re machined stock cam? Or are their cams built from ground up?

When built from ground up? I think they would be better able to hit dimension tolerances...

My friend Elizzer or this board said that the ROI is greater with the DCR cam compared to the ROI after he installed the bazzaz w/AFM.

I know that your cam is still @ DCR.

But do you have any past exp? I have a limited budget, and like you said I want to do each upgrade spaced apart so I can see the benefits from each upgrade.

I have the Steady garage intake coming this week... I normally like to put 1-2 tanks on each upgrade so I can see the benefit. Sometimes if you make a snap judgement i.e. ride it around the block, one may make the wrong conclusion like i did after i installed the full Yoshi/ air box mod.

I didn't ride long enough between the mods to single out the issue. I still don't know which caused me to lose top end speed.

I know when i'm able to go fast, because i can hear a higher pitch tone coming from the engine.

Does running too lean = Not enough Air to fuel is max top speed isn't possible?

Just max the credit card out and get both :)


HAHA… in that case, I'm getting a Corbin Snake skin seat, Ohlin Shock, and race tech internals, brembo front and rear calipers, a 170cc BBK, and PCX injector.

Jk… I have to wait. space all the purchases out...
