You picked up low end with the Kawi cam? You're the only one out of dozens of people I know that ever did that.. What numbers do you have your cam degree on? I had mine in several places searching to regain LOST low end and finally put the as tight piston to valve as possible to get some back. They couldn't get any tighter... It's a good cam BUT not something that gains you low end power.. Are you sure?

GUNNER: remember this is the Internet, Camaro's and ZX10's can gain increased "low rpm" power with race cams here!

I got an 06 and I lost 2bhp off peak hp and 5 lbs off peak torque after installing the Kawi kit intake cam. Drop in power throughout the whole rev zone with the same cam timing with my stock intake. I would probably need a new set of number to resurrect my ponies.

Try 105 / 103.5... That's as tight as you can get it with stock pistons and keep a safe Piston to valve number..

Most use 107 / 104 and I tried that as well, but it was gutted down low.. I know one guy that put them in on stock marks and his bike rocks there.. Coby actually says to use stock marks..

I was on 105/105 with the stock intake and still is with the race intake. I've yet to stretch her legs on the highway. That's a nice pair of numbers but that would go in next time when the cam cover is out (another 10k on the odo).

Need some inputs from you guys here. This is with regards to the my power lost with the kit intake cam.

A bit on my bike setup . . . . .

- High comp gasket (0.45mm)
- Cleaned up ports
- APE valve springs
- APE cam chain tensioner
- APE block off plate
- Akro EVO system
- GI-pro ATRE
- Kit intake cam
- Ram air screen out
- Ram air sealed
- Airbox sealed
- BMC filter
- Short stacks
- Sec butterflies out (including shaft and actuator)
- PC III
- Cam degree 105/105 (same degree I've used for the stock intake)

I did the race intake with the sec butterflies shaft out and loss a couple of ponies off the peak. Could this loss be primarily due to the cam degreeing or could it be others which I've failed to notice? Please advise. Thanks!

Cams aren't degreed right and plus you need to mill the head with about -15 to 20thousands off !!! Then it should rock !!!!

They say if you don't need stiffer valve spring's don't use them because they resist the
the engine and you can loose power,the KAW intake cam don't need stiff valve springs
if you only change intake cam andspring's and you lost power maybe this is the problem, the springs drag 7 hp and cam got you 5hp just maybe.
How is air/fuel ratio i hear sameone change intake cam and was no power till
air/fuel ratio was corrected
did your budy change also valve springs and gain hp?
the timing chain tensioner is it too tight ?the timing chain must have no free play but no
too tight.
