i was thinking of buying a new cam i allready have the big 3 exhaust im trying to get a little more bottom and mid range if i can only get bottom thats fine also i dont need top end as i rarely hit 5th gear. and mid isnt nearly as important as bottom end. i dont want to do other mods other then cam until it needs rebuild if ever. please specify brand and stage if you could please

i would go with a stage 2 or 3 hotcam. if you dont want to go into your motor though you could always get a 13 tooth front sprocket. i bought one this past weekend and it helped with my bottom end a lot

I got a stage 3 hotcam and the EHS big 3. I didn't notice any loss on the bottom end. But it sure pulls harder over 3,000 rpms. Should see gains of about 4-5hp with the stage 3.

New Cam

290


Race profile designed to increase mid and upper end performance. Requires Exhaust System, Hardwelded Rockers, High Compression Piston, and Performance Valve Spring Kit. Check ALL clearances! 57-751

These cams are the best we have found for different riding styles. We tested over 15 different cam profiles for the TRX700XX before we were happy with the results. We use these in our race bikes with great results. Don't settle for a cam that might make you go faster get one that is proven to make you go faster.

*Stage 2 cam is for a mildly tuned engine that is made for endurance racing we use this exact cam in wayne matlocks engine. It makes good all around power with no bottom end loss and good mid range gains. Core charge applies.

*Stage 3 cam is for someone looking for more top end power. This cam makes solid hp and works great with more mods like porting. This cam has a very agressive ramp angle which requires the use of modified rocker arms. The rocker arms are by web cams and like the cam there is a core charge. These rocker arms are clearanced for the large cam and the face is hard welded to put up with steep ramp angle. Also you will need a valve spring kit to support the extra lift. Don't let the complexity turn you off, this cam is proven reliable and very powerfull.

if you dont want to buy hardened rockers and heavy duty valve spring kit which is a few hundred dollars more youll have to stick with hotcams, id do an stg3 hot cam:xx:

I don't know what tyre sizes you have but If you have a 14t(stock) front sprocket and don't use 5th then change to a 13t front. If you have a 13t fitted and still need more bottom end.Change to a 12t front. Something tells me that if you have any "Big 3" and still need more low end power, either you bought the wrong big 3 , running really big tyres or constantly running in thick mud.

With changing to a lower gearing , you can get the same speeds and run higher engine rpms. I don't think a cam would do what you want it to do.IMO.
