sup guys, i have a 00 426 and want to get rid of the ritual of starting the bike, u all know what i mean. i was seriously considering it but need to know the benefits and cost, and more importantly exactly what parts i need to get. all info would be greatly appreciated! the bike runs like a champ, so i was hesitant on tearing into the motor. only motor mods are FMF power bomb and pipe. Please help. Thanks! :thumbsup:

You will need the exhaust cam from a 2003 or newer 450F. You will also need the shims to adjust the valves, but you wont know those measurements til the new cam is installed. Should cost you about 100-125 dollars for the parts. Some dealers (usually the service dept) will swap shims after you find what you need. Shouldnt take you more than 3 hours your first time, about an hour and a half after that. If you go with the cam, you will have the option of keeping your compression release (ditch it) buy the aluminum pug and seal from the TT member who makes them. It is a great mod.

im thinking about doing the swap, but why not just ditch the lever and cable then keep the stock actuator arm on the engine? saves money, and if the bike is flooded you can still clear it out. no?

1. You won't need the decomp shaft to clear it out, just kick through easy a few times.
2. The plug looks cool :thumbsup:
