08 cam in 07 head info?

Recommended Posts

Just want to know if it is a stright swap. I was told that you need to change the intake springs but if you look at the parts number the 07 and 08 intake springs are the same.

07 and 08 intake springs are different part numbers... You need to use the 07 OEM exhaust valve springs and 08 intake valve springs if you want to run the 08 cam. -- So all that you will need to switch out are the in valve springs.

Intake Springs:

'07 - 14751-KRN-A00

'08 - 14751-KRN-A10

'07 & '08 cams have the same lift but the '08 has different duration and cam timing, your '07 springs will probably work fine but for $10 it's worth putting new '08 springs in the bike.
