I'm with Meat. I installed the Hotcam and a 12.5:1 Wiesco piston kit (all parts and expertise provided by Travis D37) and could not be happier with the results. The cost was low (less than $350USD for parts) and the bike rips. Should have come this way stock.

The Hot Cam is such a large change in duration that it should be used with a higher compresion ratio. To do just the cam the cylinder will suffer from a reduction in pumping presure due to the delayed start of the compresion stroke so the low end will suffer.

The KTM806 cam is areasonable compramise for a stock compresion deal. The Hot cam with high compresion is a major bump up in power.

old topic bump, yeah my bad. w/e

looking for a cam with a stock decomp. did a valve adjustment on my '03 525sx and it's even more of a betch to kick now, even with the decomp lever... still a pita to get to tdc, push a hair past and kick like hell. yeah im not about this life. it's a street legal SM that's been 6spd converted
