Stage 2 Cam?

Hello my friends!

On a scale of 1-10 how hard is it to install a stage 2 cam? Also, what mods could I do to my 700 that are under $200.00?

I plan on getting a Lexx Slip on too.

IMO, I'd save the money and skip the slip on. Yo're better off with a programmer and an air mod of some sort. To keep it really cheap and still be able to feel a difference:

13 tooth front sprocket: $15
EFI Programmer: $200
New air filter: $30
Remove the airbox lid: Free!

As for the cam, it's a 5 in my book due to the not needing to change the valve springs. I wouldn't even think of touching the cam unless I had head work, higher comp piston, full exhaust, efi programmer and an air filter solution.

Alright thanks man! I'll skip the Slip on, and cam. Thanks for the quick reply!

One more thing, I am a cheapass and plan on running my quad with airbox lid off.
Will this do any damage to my prized machine?

Make sure you use a good air filter & keep you air filter serviced regularly and you will be good.

Totally agree with above. If you're not a mud riding guy or someone who rides in deep water, you'll be fine. But get the programmer before you just take the lid off. The bike runs a little lean in stock form and you'll make it worse.

If you limit is $200, then I would do what ironchef2009 suggested, although I feel the power gains will be pretty minimal. The stock muffler is pretty restrictive, look how small the opening is and it is baffled, so a slip on would provide alot more exhaust flow, since it is just a straight though pipe. I have never tried the Lexx brand slip on's, but I have heard good things about them. I figure all slip on's are pretty much the same, not really a whole lot you can do using the stock headpipe, might as well get the cheapest one you can.

As far as a cam, I believe site sponsor EHS did a before and after dyno test on a "big 3" 700XX and Hot Cams stage 3 cam. (Dyno sheets should be on this site somewhere.) I want to say the quad picked up something like 3 or 4 horsepower after the cam install. My one 700 has the big 3 and I installed a stage 3 cam and it was a noticeable difference. What are your future plans? If you never really plan on getting into the motor, then a Stage 3 cam would be a good investment. Now if you plan on gettting the head ported eventually along with other work, then I would hold off and get a Web cam and spring kit later down the road.

For a budget motor that you never really plan on doing anything else with, I would go with a Lexx slip-on, EFI controller, remove airbox lid, and a Stage 3 cam. Will be a very noticeable difference compared to stock.
