426 Hotcams Update

8 posts in this topic

Just did the Hotcams Exhaust cam on the 426. OK, I know I'm always different than everyone else, but I kinda think the start drill was easier. :D Not to worry, it's a cool mod, less weight, and I'm sure I'll get used to it. I used to be able to start the thing in sandals, now it's boots only. All I can say at this point (a ride down the street) is I think it's a little quieter at low throttle, probably due to less duration, and smooth. It's certainly not more "finicky" like I thought it might be. Can't wait to let 'er rip. :D

It should start as easy if not easier than before. Make sure you are shimmed correctly.

Yeah but it's nice to be able to release the compression manually. I always kicked 'er through a few times released and it was so easy. Now it's almost as hard as my old CR500...Damn wish I still had that monster... :D But the 426 is much better on a track, read rideable...

Sounds like something may be binding. Did you lube the cam journals and caps well before re-installing them? There shouldn't be anywhere near the compression resistance now as there was prior to the mod. Re-check everything before starting your bike again.

its called... I have done the mod too and its VERY easy to start the bike since the mod. Take all these guys recomendations seriously and re-check everything as its not normal to be more difficult.
