will it fit? (04 cams & ignition module on 08 450F)

3 posts in this topic

Having a conversation with the gentleman who did my suspension about extra snap for my bike -- (already has a Dr D to replace the stock exhaust )

He advised not to mess with the variable ignitions and try to find out if an 04 ign. box and cams would fit ( he is not specifically a Yammie mech and did not know the answer)

---- If not, does the aftermarket make a camset and ignition box that is close to the '04 profile? i have looked at the Tokyo Mods box, but too many choices may be too confusing (4 or 5 different ignition curves to choose from with those)

The ignition from an 04 will not fit the 08 as the plug is completly different. Vortex ignitions will give you a very wide range of adjustments. You can get one that has mx/sx maps or one that has mx/trail maps. The motor was redesigned in 06 so I'd be supprised if the cams would fit. Tokyo mods , crower power and web cams all make different cams for the 08 depending on what your looking for. I know that web cams has a torque cam that langston used in his bike for great low end gains. Hope that helps.

The cams will fit, but I wouldn't go that route if it were mine. Try the '06 exhaust cam by itself, and forget what your mechanic said about the variable ignitions. Look into a MSD ignition.
