I dont know about hp, but you will get alot more torque and a much smoother power curve.

Cam timing is one of the best things you can do to get more power. It's essentially where manufacturers make the engine emission friendly.

Thanks for the replies guys!

well... just to highjack a thread... I've got two sets of graves adjustable cam sprockets available if anyone wants them. Just PM me if you're interested.

It's not that much to do because all you have to do is take off the head cover, throttle bodies, and airbox.

It takes a lot of trial and error on dyno runs to get the cams where you prefer. It's not something you just bolt on and gain power/torque with. Unless you've milled the head and just trying to put them back to stock specs. Especially since there's 2 cams to dial in to your preference. I've never done it on a bike, but with cars, it's a lot of work to get the cams were you want them...getting the torque/power curve the way you want. Has anyone actually degreed a cam here? There's no "optimum" setting, it's all about top end or midrage or a compomise.
