"Dialing In" WR450 Cams
Posted February 27, 2005 - 07:27 PM
Taking the WR450 to a race machanic Tuesday who will "dial in" the cams. The drive gears for the cams are pressed on the to the WR450 cam shafts. The service will press on new drive grears to true stock settings, or will press on new drive gears at different degrees to enhance perfromance (YZ?).
Just wondering if anyone has changed the cam degrees from something other than stock using this method?

Sometimes, its not the one little item that makes the differecne between winning, its a "bunch" of little items stacked together that makes a big difference in winning.
You are absolutely right. Up to this point I have done everything mod to max output without modifying the engine internals from stock. It out pulled a KTM 300 2-smoke in the finish section yesterday, so I guess how much is enough?
Since the mechanic was going to check/adjust the valves anyway he suggested, as you say, "degreeing" the cam to exact factory specs, or better (?).

But having an additional performance edge is OK too.
