Hot cam stage 1

Real easy to install if you have a manual.
Get a good torque wrench, and watch a few videos.
Increased bottom and mid on my LTR450.
Stage 1 is great for MX, not for top end

These things make your bike fly

I put a 270 kit on my yz250f and it made a difference then i put these on and these made a bigger difference than the big bore kit did I was shocked when i rode it for the first time it makes the bike fly

Awesome cams!

I just got the intake cam installed into my 2005 z400, also a yoshimura slip-on exhaust and a k&n filter. I have seen no bottom end loss but when you hit it into the mid-range, its like a whole new machine. Definetly worth the different power curve! And not at all that hard to install and break in (just have the right tools).

A: You will need to check your valve clearance. Refer to your service manual or take it to a local service department to have it checked out.

A: Not necessarily. If your cam chain is in good condition it can be reused. Depending on what model you have though it may be worth it to replace the chain as well. Feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.

Q: 06 kfx400 need more power?
1 year 5 months ago
I have a 2006 kfx 400 it has a uni airfilter stage 2 jets and a big gun Eco slip on exhaust. I was disappointed after my jets as I noticed that I just barely have a little bit faster pull in 5th gear. Anyways I was wondering what these cams would do for a power difference and if I did buy some then what stage?

A: The stage 1 for your 2006 Kawasaki KFX400 would provide more of a bottom end gain where as the stage 2 would provide more top end gains.

A: for your yamaha i wouldn't suggest just changing 1 cam with an aftermarket one. If you are going to replace the cams, replace both intake and exhaust cams.

A: The intake cam always has the most power gains, because of duration, lift and other factors that allow more of the fuel air mixture to enter the motor. (be careful if advancing the timing, because timing can be advanced all the way to the point of detonation)
