Slotted sprockets are cam sprockets that are secured to the camshaft with two small bolts. There is a small slot in the sprocket where the bolt mounts the sprocket to a boss that is pressed onto the camshaft. This allows you to adjust the cam timing infinately, to get the exact power curve you desire. Using a degree wheel and a dial indicator, you can precicely set the lobe centres of the camshaft. This process is called 'dialing in the camshafts' Check the HotCams site for pics.

It is hard to beat WR cams in nasty technical low speed riding. I am sure that anyone can ride with YZ timing but it is easier with the WR timing. You guys with a WR426 have the best of both worlds. Being able to switch back and forth. We have to buy a whole new cam.
