XW 221 6 Cylinder improvements?

Hi all,

I've had my XW600 for about 12 years now and am now looking to throw a few dollars at it to hopefully make it more reliable as I would like to get it out a bit more and get a few more HP at the same time.

I basically asking for anyone out there who cares to put their 2 cents in regarding where the money would be best spent, ignition, carbs etc, and where the best places are to get the bits.
If there is a better place to post this, or somewhere where these answers may already be on the forum please advise.

I've already put headers on it, but its pretty much a stock 221ci six.


Thanks in advance for your input.

mild cam would be the trick plus some head work.

Cool, thanks for that.
Who still makes cam's for these? Where can I get them from?
Would putting a Pertronics Elec dizzy & coil on get me much gains?

Thanks,
