Is the hot cams installation kit neccessary?
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?

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.

This kit is designed for people who want to adjust the timing on their Hot Cams Camshaft.

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.

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.
