Webb cams builds them for someone racing in Europe. They couldn't tell me if it would clear the pistons without valve relief. Then I bought a Husaberg and lost interest in my 990.

Sorry for another stupid question but what's wrong with using clean engine oil?

Assembly lube is typically used when assembling a new motor, but if you already have it on hand, there is no reason not to use it when playing around with a motor that has already been run in. And, yes, this is Redline assembly lube.

Nice chrome header on that banned three wheeler!
If the 990 cams are milder than the 950, I wonder whether the 950 cams would work in a carbed 990. Fit? Enough clearance? Better performance? Hmmm....

The reason I wonder is that I already have a set of 950 cams sitting on the shelf, and my 990 is already carbed.

there is no answer to that right now. Send your cam's to billy and we'll know it!

Billy, keep up the good work and hope you find a set of SD and 950 cams!

In another thread there is info about 2009+ 990 cams are SD cams. So could there be three different cams? 950, early 990 and 2009+ 990 ADV/SD?

SD cams in Adventures

I wonder with which ECU would SD cams run with? 950Adv or 990Adv '07 or SD or 990Adv '10?

Jeremiah Johnson: [Jeremiah and Bear Claw hunt elk] Wind's right, but he'll just run soon as we step out of these trees.
Bear Claw Chris Lapp: Trick to it. Walk out on this side of your horse.
Jeremiah Johnson: What if he sees our feet?
Bear Claw Chris Lapp: Elk don't know how many feet a horse has!

Modern terms: ECU don't know how big the loabs are.

Plus, you cannot change the ECU mapping to the SD. You would have to try the 10 Adv.

All 950's run the same cams(SM, SE or Adv.) There are four different cams for the 990.

But really, with the problems I had getting a good set of cams out of KTM(three different sets came scored and chipped) it would be better and faster to go aftermarket.

So Tahoeacr, would it be a better bet to have the 950 cams welded and ground to spec? Or are the 990 parts cheaper than the shop labor?
I wondered about LC8 cams for a long time and never guessed that the 950 lobe specs were xr/klr in proportion...

note that the currently measured cams are NOT 950, but the 990 ADV
