I installed the stage 2 intake and exhaust cams along with the Cylinder Works big bore kit in my 2006 YZ 450... this bike is back from the dead! enormous power and two stroke like throttle response. I highly recommend their products.

Do any of the Hot Cams COME WITH the decompresser parts already fitted into/on the exhaust cam? I need it for a Kawasaki 2006 KX450F. Thanks and God Bless......MR
Q: Will I need get my EFI reprogrammed if I purchase different camshafts?
Over 9 months ago
I am wondering if my bike will run well without reprogramming the Ecm or if I will need to purchase a tuner for better performance. Thanks
MotoSport Staff ExpertOver 9 months ago
A: For maximum performance tuning would likely be recommended. For tuning your HOTCAMS installed machine I recommend contacting HOTCAMS directly at:
A: i would reprogram it be for you go get a cam unless the bike blew up, i reprogramed my 2015 kx250f and the power gains are unreal i advanced my timeing 3 degrees and added a lil fuel and from there you can tune to your riding style.. i always wait for the motor to go befor i build it..
Q: I'm thinking of running a mix of race fuel and 91 octane pump gas in my stick 2015 KX 250f.. What would be a good mixture?

Expert MotoSport Staff1 year 3 months ago
A: Generally a 50/50 mix will work great. Feel free to give us a call at 888-676-8853 and we would be happy to help you out with your order.
A: i run a straight vp 100 octane because it dosent have the ethanol better all around really great for storage.
Q: Will stage 1 intake and exhaust hotcams work with Kibblewhite valve kit or would I need to do extra modifications. The bike is an 09 kx250ft or?

A: Hot Cams stage 1 cams are designed to work with the OEM valves and springs. The Kibblewhite kit uses a higher than stock spring rate, thus will work fine with the stage 1 cam.
Q: Whats the difference between stage 2 exhaust cams an the stage 2 intake cams or can you put both on?
Over 3 years ago
MotoSport StaffOver 3 years ago Location: Portland, OR, USA
A: Well on Dual Over Head Cam engines you have two cams. One to control the intake valves and the other to control the exhaust valves. Typically you replace them in pairs but they are sold individually. Basically the two cams would be a match set. It is not required to run both cams, but is recommended for the most effective power increase. The exception to this is going to be on the Honda engines that only utilize one cam to actuate both sets of valves.

Q: Race gas or is premium ok?
Over 6 years ago
i have two questions. first if i have a procircuit high comp piston this would still work with it right? second question would you reccomend using vp fuel or would 93 oct be ok
Best Answer Top 250 ContributorOver 6 years ago Location: missoula mt
A: Yes the cams will work also. you can run 93 octane but the more compression that you give it the more its gonna want U4 race gas. if you istall these and the engine pings then i would want to run race fuel.
Expert MotoSport StaffOver 6 years ago Location: Portland, OR
A: This cam will work fine with the PC piston. Typically, most people who run a higher compression piston will want to run straight race gas, like VP, or a 50/50 blend of premium/race gas. VP gas contains slightly more oxygen to keep the detonation temperature cooler.
Q: Set up?
Over 7 years ago
do the cams already come set, or do you have to set the degrees?
Expert MotoSport StaffOver 7 years ago
A: No these are install and go. The lobes are fixed and machined to your bikes specs.
Q: Whats difference between stage 1 and stage2?
Over 7 years ago
Whats the difference between camshafts stage 1 and stage 2 ?
MotoSport Staff ExpertOver 7 years ago
A: Unless HotCams only offers a stage 1 kit for a specific bike, then the stage 1 cams are considered a good low to mid-range cam where as the stage 2 cams are considered mid to top-end cams.
A: Stage 1 is all around performance, stage 2 is all around but more on mid to top, stage 3 all top
