vernier cam gear

Gday all,

am thinking of getting a cam gear fitted to my 98 xh. what are the advantages/disadvantages of these, what difference do they make and are they worth 150 bucks?? the model is a crow which is the same as the stage 2 au grind cam that i have in now.

Re: vernier cam gear

It may or may not be worthwhile. It depends where your cam is sitting now, which depends on how accurate you cam has been ground, how much stretch you have in the timing chain, etc.
A vernier gear allows accurate cam timing to be achieved.

I personally think they are mandatory.

Re: vernier cam gear

I had it put in about 2 months ago, and went from 108rwkw to 118.5, so a pretty decent gain. Allows the cam timing to be adjusted to suit your setup, I wouldn't run a crow cam without one really!
