I read somewhere that the yz 450 cam gear has a different pitch and if installed there would be accelerated wear. Is the better choice the hot cams yz 426 cam w/ decompression and is it better to use their intake cam as well? Thanks for any info.
Go with the Hot Cams auto deco cam. It's worked great in my 01 WR 426 I have over 3000 miles on it and it works great. Yeah it may cost a few bucks more but it works. I kept the stock intake cam. No problems at all. No more starting ritual and no other problems when using it with a stock intake cam or cam chain. You don't need the intake cam unless your really looking for some HP or a different delivery curve. Hell a good running 426 is fast enough for me.

Yes, those are the instructions I used when I did this mod.
Thanks, I recall seeing this at some point. Has anyone out there done there cam upgrade according to this? If my valves are in spec to begin with do I automatically need to reshim with new cam in? What pros and coms did you experience? I just want to do it right the first time, is it better to just retime the stock cam???
