exhaust cam

4 posts in this topic

what would happen if i put a stage 1 exhaust cam from Hot Cams? it has auto decompression on it... would it be the same as in putting 03 yzf450 exhuast cam like the normal mod? or do i have to put both intake and exhaust cams for it to work. what would happen if i put both cams would i get less compression like the regular mod??? or would it build more by holding intake and exhaust valves open longer?

There is no benefit to buying just the exhaust Hot Cam. Sure the HC exhaust side will provide you with auto-decompression, but you need both cams to benefit powerwise.

Are the Hot Cams worth the money? You bet. :banghead:

By itself, the Yamaha cam will give you the best power improvement, and it costs less. The Hot Cams exhaust cam alone will give you some gain in power, but it was designed to work in concert with their intake cam, and as a complete pair, they work very well. If you're on a budget, and you really only care about getting the auto decompression feature, the OEM YZ450 cam is the way to go. Just remember, they require special timing.
