Talking A Great Motor Just Got a Whole Lot Better

Picked up my XC today from KMC Power Sports in Westerly, RI. and the ride just got a whole lot better! See the dyno numbers below. Those of you that have added cams, a fuel controller and a aftermarket exhaust know how it felt when we twisted the throttle for the first time after the install: Freaking Awesome!

Those of you that may be thinking about it, think no more. Start saving now or throw caution to the wind and max the credit card.

The only downside is the rain in the forecast here tomorrow.

Nice. I'm hoping to head up to Lloydz in the spring for a few goodies.

Wish there was someone who I could trust down here close to Corpus Christi TX. I would have them instaled ASAP.
When they installed the Cams did they have to remove the Engine from the bike?

Engine does not have to come out of the frame.

No sir, Kyle, Lloydz technician, installed without removing the engine. Which I believe is the standard method with the Cross bikes.

Kyle and the Lloydz mobile dyno trailer will be at Daytona Bike Week next month. Daytona is a little closer. You can go to Lloydz.com and click on the "Tour Events" tab to find Kyle's contact info. He may be available to do an install for you.

If more is good,
and even more is even better,
then too much is just perfect!

Thanks for the info.
The reason I asked about the engine comming out is because thats what the dealers Service Dept told me according to their service manuel for R&R of Cams. They are good guys and have always taken care of me,even taking my advice on somethings I learned on this forum. They just have little engine experience since these bikes seldom have problems. I'll pass on this info to them, but I sure would feel alot better about someone with experence with this. I'll check out Lloydz event schedual.

I believe the factory manual suggests taking the engine out....some of the mechanics can clarify. I was told the same at the local dealer, but my buddy did it without dropping the engine. I think Mark got some advice from Loydz, which is where we got the cams.

Really worth the money!

I did it using the method everyone else is using when not removing the engine and it went fairly smooth.

My local dealer wanted to remove the engine and replace a bunch of gaskets because that's what their manual tells them to do.

I didn't replace any gaskets although I had them in case I needed to except for one of the cam chain tensioner metal squash gaskets; if it can be called a gasket. It was my fault. I didn't make sure it was on the big bolt well enough and pinched it. Ten days later I got a new gasket. Kinda drives me crazy that dealerships don't stock anything these days. I hear even HD is getting bad about this too. No one wants to leave money sitting on the shelves.
