stuttering and chattering XR600 chain

Greetings, I own a 1995 Honda XR600. The previous owner installed the HRC cam, and I don't like it. The power band is really short, and throttle response is not real smooth. The engine revs up real quick. In addition, if I'm not in the sweet spot of the gear in question, I get a stuttering/chattering of the chain, almost as though it's bogging down. Either I'm in a lower gear and revving like crazy, or I'm chattering and stuttering in the next higher gear.

The sprockets are taking a beating and becoming quite cupped (which probably is contributing to this effect). Is it the cam that's causing this or do you think the clutch is to blame for some reason? I'm tempted to put the stock cam back in for smoothness throughout the power curve...

Help is appreciated!

Seems like the torque band moved up,maybe you"ll have to change you gearing acordingly.Try dropping one tooth up front and revise the jetting...

Back to your problem, I also think that changing your gearing or re-jetting will help. Just keep checking back, I am positive some one with a water cooled or air cooled bike will find the answers your are looking for. :thumbsup:

This is why we need a moderator.......LAME REPLIES! It was obviously directed to the air cooled side of the house. Nobody asked for MaxiPads opinion on a forum split. Nobody asked for MaxiPad to click on it! Pull your String out and take off your Skirt! If you dont have anything constructive to say then don't, cause your 2 cents ain't worth a damn unless your trying to help the problem and not be part of the problem :ride:

Thanks to all who replied to my post, I have since discovered that more throttle fixes this problem. It is just a matter of getting used to going faster and keeping the RPMs up in the sweet spot for this cam. As I was learning to ride on this bike, I liked to crawl slowly through the single track. Now that I have gained confidence I just hit it a bit faster...

Cheers,

Ladge

I have an 89 stock and a 94 full HRC and discovered the same thing,the stocker pulled better down low. By the time you get above 2500 things reversed and the HRC goes bye bye. I just put a edelbrock on the HRC and now it jumps off the bottom. Probably still not the best for tight slow trails cause things happen in a hurry. For tight stuff it would be hard to beat stock.
