Here's good news

3 posts in this topic

Hello

My name is Gus and I have an addiction.XRidus

This was good news I posted it to share some good news.

This bike I speak of is a 93' 650L

I received a new cam for Christmas and found it doesn't come with an auto decompress mech.

HOT CAMS recommends a manual device.After some research I found only the sparkplug hole style device available ,well I'm sure the XR 4valve head has little room for that.

So I Emailed HOT CAMS alittle HOT my self and was happy to see a reply the next day, assuring me there would be no ill affects on my starter or batteries ability to start machine as there's no kick starter .

It may be to late to make this story short but I'm impressed with their customer service and quick reply.They even offered me a complete refund if I was not satisfied. :thumb:

I put a Hotcam in my 05 L, and am very happy with its performance! The need for a decompressor of any type is not needed.

Think about it, a performance camshaft with longer duration actually lowers compression a small amount. Mine cranks over fine, even when 20 degrees outside.

I also know of guys who have done a cam, hi comp piston, crf 450x battery(slightly less CCA's), and have no problem starting.
