    Specs Are:

    "Bigger and Longer"

    In all seriousness this will hopefully tack another 10-15 on the top end, with a very small trade on bottom. My 265 already makes abnormally high sub-peak torque, so a good trade.

    Just looking at it closely, I can tell you there's a whole lot different here from the .465 lift BC-4 cam. Shoulder shape is entirely different.

    I love that you are going above and beyond but I seriously think you need to join one of the Bonneville teams and start working on land speed records.

    I just had to post this. It’s a new cam for my 900cc Street Scrambler (4 valve, SOHC) and should raise rwhp from 48ish to 70ish. Quite a contrast. Really highlights what a brute the R3 engine is.

    My buddy Jerry and I are taking his 1200 Thruxton R to Bonneville Speed Week in August 2019. We are working on adapting a full faring from his 904 Thruxton to get a little more streamlining.
