    Wouldn't that depend on your application? I have been itching to get inside my engine! Good luck.

    I've been told by reputable tuners that Yoshimura makes the cams most use.
    I was talking to Blaise awhile back about this. They do valve and head work as well as cams for a reasonable price. I'm sure you'd be happy with the results.

    I dont think cams alone are worth the$$$ and work, by them selfs what are you going to gain? 5-6 hp? $600? if your gonna go into the motor do the head and pistons to. just my 2 pennys

    It's the total package that will give you the gains. Cams alone aren't worth the time money IMO...

    Just pull the head/cams, reassemble and send to GoldenChild - he will take care of you!

    If I do heads and pistons then that mean my mechanic and I are going to have a good friendship. Pistons and heads means bike blowing up and I will pass on that.

    Cams only stage 1 gives 3 - 5 HP gain.
