Here is the info:

The exhaust cam swap is u remove the stock intake cam, and buy a second exhaust cam and put it in the original intake cams place. Its a mild improvement over stock good for maybe 1hp.
only the new intake cam gets retarded (second exhaust cam)
the stock exhaust cam and timing stay intact!
we Knocked the pin out with a punch and hammer, (DO NOT NICK THE CAM LOBE!)
1 tooth is pretty close, I still say that you buy the tool , remove the lower gear off of the balance shaft and set up a degree wheel ,
the RIGHT WAY is to buy a degree wheel , and set it up, install the cam alignment tool , then let the numbers do that work.
AS I said , it will run at 0 degrees , it will run better at 3 degrees retarded.

I have done all of that minus the injector and been very pleased with the results. When I have tuned my bikes on a dyno, they have not needed bigger injectors. But, I'm going a different route, and will have some exhaust cams for sale if you are interested.

Alex what dose degreeing the cam actually do for it power torque or throttle response? I have just built my motor had stuff done before never had the dual exhaust cam degreed before and it ran good I've been searching for someone who has actual info like dyno sheets of it from stock to degreed to see an actual change. Do you have some or have more info before I make the change I want to know as much as possible and dont like the it runs better answere I keep getting.
