Just wondering if anyone knows if hotcams have fixed their problem with their wr450 cams that wont allow the bike to start with the e-start because of the wrong sized decomp pin?

Im planning on getting a hotcams intake and exhaust cam for the extra power but i still want to be able to use my e-start, also is there any special part number that i need so i get the right ones and would i need to change jetting etc after the upgrade?

Thanks everyone:thumbsup:

It seems they have solved the problem, at least some of it.

Simon, i wanted to get the hotcams intake and exhaust cam because together they give more power than just a YZ exhaust cam.

Asgeir, I read all of that post and thats why im now asking this question because i dont want to get these cams then have e-start issues, Josh did say he fixed his problem but didnt mention if he has e-start issues with his new cam(unless i missed that in the thread), i might ask the question in Joshes thread.

Hotcams (the member) are you able to shed some light on the topic?

Agree. My neighbors 03 450 will not e-start with the YZ cam but is ridiculously easy to start with the kick-starter. So much so, he stripped everything e-start related off his bike (including the battery).

However, with lots of practice and jetting, i can get my e start to work with my yz cam most of the time, I just use the hot start lever whenever it's a restart, and when cold i use choke and twist the throttle twice before cranking and it seems to get me going most of the time on the magic button....

I don't like Hotcams. My friend owns a shop and he has a hell of a time getting the valve clearance right with ever Hotcam he has ever installed. There was a CRF250R that was a nightmare. If I was wanting a cam I'd get the Yamaha one or find another brand. Web Cams makes great cams for quads. I don't know about bikes.

CRF's usually are nightmares, my mate has a crf250r and he needs to adjust his valves after every ride - probably need replacing.

could i get some feedback off people that have hotcams - what they think of them, troubles, how much more power they make etc.

Thanks heaps everyone, this info is very helpful.

All I know for sure about Hotcams is that I had never even seen their logo and the next day they were everywhere. I just see cheap price without a core charge. The guy who builds the 2006 GNC Pro quad champion's bike uses web cams. They don't have a core charge on the 2 for my wife's quad. I don't know about the bike. I don't know the website but Web Cams pulls up a ton for porn webcams when you search for it.:lol:
Too bad you have to pay.
