Looking to get more power out of my 09. Ive already got a HC piston & run race gas. Next move is to get new cams. I know the 2012 kx450 ran like a raped ape.Is it mostly the cams from that bike that performed so well? If i remember right they reverted to an old cam design for 2013. I want to look at getting a set of used ones and throwing them in my 09. Seems cheaper than buying new hot cams.

I had a 09, 12, and 14. The 12 cam was a bit more aggressive but not much more then my 09. The 14 was a bummer. Are you just looking for more low end hit? Overall more? The ecu would be the best to adjust to what you want.

Im sending my ecu to tokyo mods for a remap. Hopefully that gives a nice boost for all the aftermarket shit on it.

Crower intake cam works well . Hot cams stage 2 cams make more power too.

Did you end up doing any Cam upgrades? how was the Tokyo Mods remap?

I have a 2012 intake Cam I want to put into my 2016 for the "same" powerful 2012 engine hopefully. do you think it will work?

This was my post on my old account..

Yes. My 450 had a remap, runs sunoco 110, cp carillo HC piston, and hotcams stage 1 cams for bottom end. The bike threw me down hard with that much power and i went back to a stock ecu and pump gas.

The biggest single power improvement came from the tokyo mods remap. $ for $ best mod ive ever done to a bike besides suspension. Like i said tho, was too much powrr for me
