Default Replacing the cams.

So, I'm leaning towards replacing the cams in my XC and I started looking at the cams available for it on the Lloydz website. It lists four different cam options and I was wondering what the difference was between the four and which one you guys would recommend getting. Thanks!!

It really depends on what you are looking for. Do you want more on the low end like off the line or do you want more on the top end?

Somewhere floating around is an overlay dyno graph of the drop-in, touring and super charger cams where you can see how each cam works differently.

I have the touring cams in my bike. I love them. But if I knew then what I know now I'd probably go with the SC cams. But that's a personal decision based on how I find myself riding now vs. back then (and the fact that the SC cams weren't available.)

Throw a leg over the bike and ride up to Kevinx and talk to him. He is one of the best performance tuners around. He'll give you good answers if you ask good questions

114 Torque? Almost 100 at 2250 RPM? Looks like it already has cams. I'd recommend you ride the shit out of it
(I could be wrong, you know..)

That 97 hp could become 117 with cams. My cams helped a huge amount all over, that dyno chart is just wide open throttle there's much, much more to it than that.
