How much hp can I expect from this thing? My mods are Fuela ATV intake, Fuel spec Dasa PC3 & 36t sprocket and 15t front on order. Is this the cam for me with my mods? Any input will be greatly apreciated, need to know before I order. Thanks.

The vistory cams are a mid range cam. If you are looking for a better grunt out of the hole, this is the cam for you. Crower has told me that the stock KFX cams are very mild and they are showing a decent gain with this thing.

I have yet to run one personally on a KFX. I have run them in the YFZ's with a lot of success. I have one in stock if you are interested, PM me.

Did you know that the cams in your KFX450 are not the kx450 cams? Kawasaki changed the cams, I am running the crower vicktory cam (intake) and the KX 450 dirt bike cam on the (exhaust side) , this made more power than when I added my pipe! Pulls harder at bottom and mid. the top end was not changed.
Funny, your setup is a copy to my bike?
dasa pipe 13" can, PC3 with acc pump, fuel intake, 36rear sprocket, and for you that are reading, the 36 is great for MX, and Dunes, fuel max clear A arms, dominator 2 rear ax, +2" steering stem,
Back to the cam change, I think this is a must do, you got the pipe and intake!!
My cam change was money well spent, dollor for power,
a cheaper way to go is the stock KX 450 cams, this will save you some money.
I am trying to set up an apointment to have my bike dino tuned at powercomander in Las Vegas, an hour 1/2 drive..I will have a great NEW MAP when I done, for now I run the procir map with 6% added on. What are you running for a map? Dont tell me your bike is sitting whating for a map?

Thanks!

Yes, all three, with the buttons, read up, find your PCIII USB User's Guide.
Adjustments can be made to the installed map by using the buttons on the face plate of the unit. The buttons divide the RPM range into thirds and will cover all throttle postitions within the specified RPM range. The RPM range can be verified by connection the unit to the computer and powering it up (either with the 9 volt power adapter or the bikes power) While the unit is communicating with the software push the "low" button. The map will be highlighted in the area that the low button affects. Repeat this for the mid and high buttons to verify the ranges. Each light bar change is 2% fuel change over the existing map in the power commander.

TO ADJUST THE BUTTONS FOLLOW THESE STEPS:
Make sure the kill switch is in the run position and turn the ignition on.
within 5 seconds of turning on the ignition press all three buttons down simultaneously.
select the range you wish to adjust; Low,Med,High, by puching the corresponding button once!
At this point pushing the button Repeatedly will move the lights up (richening the map)
(remember each light bar is a 2% change)
After making your adjustments wait 15-20 seconds befor starting or shutting off!
To verify that it is safe to start the bike or turn it off, move the throttle and watch to see if the lights move up and down the scale. If they do, your good.
as you know, if you screw up, or get confused, just download the map you were using and start over, each time you install a map it takes the place of the last one.

one more thing, ( when the two center lights are lit this is the "0" setting (no changes to the base map).

NOTE: While the bike is running the indicator lights on the Power Commander do not indicate rich or lean condition. IN "Button adjustment" mode the lights indicate which way the fuel curve is being adjusted from its baseline. In normal operation the lights only indicate throttle position. At full throttle the lights will not reach the top of the display.

Moto1 knows his stuff. He hooked me up with the instructions on the TPS adjustment and fixed most of my starting issues. Moto1 is the man.
