What change are you looking for from the cam swap?

It's a long story but basically we have had trouble tuning the pinging out of my motor , it is slight and only at 100% full throttle , Frank looked over my specs and he realize the CR-575 cams had to little over lap for 10.5 compression , they need 10.2 or less , with my head work a stock head gasket would have given me 10.19 , we used a .030 head gasket for 10.5 compression , to solve the problem I can go back to a stock head gasket or change to a cam with more over lap , Frank suggested cam change , I talked to Dan Baisley of Baisley Hi Performance who did my heads and he said if it was him he'd change cams , Frank and Dan both liked the 625 for what I wanted , torque starting at 2200rpm's all the way to 6000rpm's , a nice flat curve , other cams will get bigger numbers but not as good of a curve , so I decided to change cams over head gasket , I told Frank if I ever had to retune the bike I'd switch to the Dragula at that time , so here I am trying my hardest to stimulate the economy , the rest of you need to kick in and do your part lol

tj I'll be stimulating the economy a little more when Hawgwired comes out with the new amps and I can get them from Frank. In the meantime I'm making subtle changes. And as long as I stop looking at your bike and the job you did with the fans, etc, maybe I can save some $$$$$, I still have to get shocks also. ....

dbell , I keep looking at your bags and rear fender , you are trying to make me spend more money , the only thing holding me back is this orange won't match up so it means complete paint job to change

Hey you started it, lol. And just think how much you can help the economy with a new paint job. BTW I may be changing the rear fender, check out True Kustoms G2 rear fender.
