Hi All,

So hears the deal, im trying to make my grom breathe better in the higher RPMS... i currently have a kitaco type 1 cam. Looking to see if anyone has a more aggressive cam they want to get rid of. If show post up or shoot me an offer.

I will be taking the finbro cam out of my 183cc but I am not sure but it may have to much lift. Do you have the stock piston. Or bbk?

if youre feelin' real squirelly, I have my old stock head and yuminashi cam, valves n high tension springs. this has the longer valves in it,(lift was 7.1? mm) it breathed really well. head and cam 180 shipped conus. basically the only part of the kit that didn't suck balls.

I would sell you a Kitaco Type 2 cam from my stock head for $40 shipped. Roughly 2k miles on it. I have been running 170 4v for awhile now.

check your PM.


So far the type 2 is on the list, But i gotta think about it, i might want slightly more agressive than that. Like i told gdublug a day or so to see what others have. I also want to find specs on the type 2 vs type 1 to see what the differences are. But kitaco does make a good product.

I've never been able to find the specs on the type 2. Even tried the Japanese site run through Google translate. Would love to see them if someone finds them.

Type 2 cam specs are

Intake Duration is 234.00 degrees.
Exhaust Duration is 232.00 degrees

1mm more lift over stock


Type 1 cam specs

Intake Duration is 223.00 degrees.
Exhaust Duration is 226.00 degrees

1mm more lift over stock




Makes sense why the type 2 is more of a high end cam, decent amount of overlap for extra scavenging etc.... hmmmmmm decisions decisions.

I might take the poster above up on his offer here.



Though yosh cam specs are even bigger! haha.
