A: Honda has discontinued that cam for your Honda XR500 Being an older bike your selection will be limited. Doing a search, looks like Web Cams has one available.

I want to buy some stage 1 camshafts, but not if I need to spend $120 on this kit too. Do I need this to just put in some new camshafts or can I just put them straight in out of the box?

A: YES.
ALL BIKES HAVE MARKS ON THE GEARS AND TWO OR THREE BOLTS HOLD THE GEAR ON TO THE CAM. SO THE CAM IS INDEXED BY THE BOLTS. THE ONLY ONE THAT I KNOW THAT DOESN'T IS YZF250 AND YZF450. THEY HAVE TO BE INDEXED AND THEN PRESSED ON. SO NO MARKS ON THE CAM JUST THE GEAR. IF YOU ARE BUYING FOR A YAMAHA BUY WITH NEW GEARS INSTALL BUY CAM MANUFACTURE. UNLESS YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND THE PRINCIPLES HOW TO DEGREE A CAM IN AND HAVE TOOLS TO DO IT.

A: They do but this is for an adjustable camgear so you can adjust the cam a couple degrees forward or back

Q: Is the hot cams installation kit neccessary?
Over 7 years ago
I haven't ordered it yet, but I'm fixing to order a stage 2 hot cam for my atv. Do I have to have the hot cams instillation kit to install the hot cam once I order it and get ready to install it?

A: If you have all the necessary tools to install a new cam and get the specs correct I would say it's not needed but if you don't have any of the tools this kit will definitely come in handy.

A: The only reason you would need this is if you want to adjust your cam timing a few degrees advanced or retarted for better power where you might need it (more top end or midrange) this is mostly for serious racers that need to get absolutly everything out of there motor and know what they are doing.

A: In speaking to hot cams and checking out their website, if you get stage 2 or above cams you will more than likely need the installation kit to properly degree your timing. The more high performance parts you install the more important degeeing the cams becomes. Keep in mind that this is a very technical process best done by a skilled mechanic. And always double check it when your done. If you have stage 1 or oem cams the timing will be close enough out of the box being that the gear is pressed on and easily adjustable.
