R&D Racing Adjustable Cam Gear Kit

R&D’s Racing Cam Gear kit allows a huge boost in overall horsepower to be gained by custom tuning the Camshafts LSA (lobe separation angle) set up. Tuning the Cam’s LSA with R&D Racing Cam Gears will add a significant jolt in low end acceleration power, increased mid range performance, and add 2-3 MPH to your existing engine package. Adjusting the camshafts LSA is a very simple “BOLT IN” modification with the R&D Cam Gear Kit. Understanding the LSA concept principle is fairly easy. A wide LSA like found in the FX HO will generally result in decreased valve overlap, later intake events, earlier exhaust events, and high intake manifold VACUUM (higher vacuum at idle) which produce great idle, smooth accelerating with mild low and top end power. Wide LSA’s are great for school buses and soccer mom vans. However, if strong mid range pull and top end horsepower is what you’re looking for, then a significantly narrower LSA will need to be generated. The R&D Racing Cam Gear Kit allows the LSA (lobe separation angle) to be adjusted much narrower which will generate increased valve overlap, earlier intake events, and later exhaust events. Resulting in snappier throttle response, increased mid range and top end power with more boost.

The R&D Racing Cam Gears are billet CNC machined, Heat Treated, and ground from steel alloy to deliver durable strength with precise timing. The R&D Racing Cam Gear Kit offers 25 possible advanced LSA combinations that allow the cams to be precision tuned depending on the type camshaft lift and duration package, type of racing and type of fuel. The R&D Cam Gear Kit utilizes the proven and precision OEM FX HOuldered bolt mount design to perfectly center, align, and time the cam and properly support the cast cam flanges from cracking and breaking over slotted or inserted type gears that are known to break cam flanges. R&D knows that cam lobe profile and cam timing is the heart of a good running engine, In fact, R&D has built a specific engine designated for degreeing, checking and proving camshaft lobe specifications, LSA and LC combinations. Depend on the Pro’s at R&D to deliver all your horsepower needs.

• Aggressive throttle response, increased overall horsepower
• Increased rpm performance (+200-300 RPM Gain)
• Aggressive individual and overall LSA tuning advancements combinations
• 15-18 Horsepower Increase over stock LSA (works well on RC2,RC3, as well as larger duration cams)
Precision CNC Billet, Ground, and Heat Treated Cam Gears (lighter than stock)
• R&D Reprogrammed ECU Compatible (check instructions for LSA/octane suggestions)
• Works well with stock cams, as well as R&D RC1/RC2, and up Cam Regrinds and profiles
• Easy installation
• Bolt on Higher Horsepower Upgrade

NOTE: R&D has determined that the O.E.M LSA is a WIDE 120° degrees stock, with an intake cam lobe center of 122.5° degrees. LSA tuning options in the R&D Racing Cam Gear Kit allow aggressive adjustments to match the LSA combinations that have been extensively tested by R&D’s Racing Division. Considering the stock LSA timing facts, using the R&D Racing Cam Gears to tune the cams will generate huge performance power gains. LSA combinations allow up to 13 degree advancements on the intake cam, and 10 degree advancements on the exhaust cam. Arriving at an individual 108 degree setting on both intake and exhaust cams is easily do-able, and an overall 108 LSA can be arrived with the Racing Cam Gear Set. Call R&D for current power upgrade information as we are constantly at work looking for more.

R&D High Performance Dual Valve Spring Kit

R&D has developed an economical solution for upgrading the valve train by offering a series of upgrade parts that will work great with the OEM retainer and valve seals. R&D has documented that the seat tension or pressure on the stock springs is a low 52-55 pounds, and coil bind on the stock springs occurs .050” after full lift on the stock cams. As an industry rule or standard, as boost levels are increased to the engine, the valve spring seat pressure should be increased 1-2 pounds per pound of boost. As an industry rule, as RPM'S are increased, the spring pressure at full lift should be increased as well to reduce or eliminate valve float at high rpm frequencies. With the stock springs “short lift travel” shimming is NOT an option. Valve Springs MUST be upgraded.
Also to consider is valve spring travel at full cam lift, and to have enough spring clearance freedom to run high performance camshafts or add additional spring tension pressures without coil bind issues. The R&D spring kit parts were developed and used with stock retainers during the 2009 season and have proven their performance with an APBA/IJSBA Pro Open National Championship.
R&D dual springs are a “lightweight design” and manufactured from ultra clean, high tensile material with multi step surface treatments to improve fatigue strength and reliability. NOTE: R&D Spring Kits must use the R&D Bottom Spring Retainer Cups kit Pt. # 612-93006 for proper assembly and seat pressures!

R&D Tunable Raising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator

The R&D Tunable Raising Rate Fuel Pressure Regulator enables the “raising rate” portion of the fuel pressure to be tuned. With the addition of two volume plates and three jets that change the internal volume and pressure the “raising rate fuel pressure curve” can be manipulated. The regulator comes with a baseline setup, which contains no volume plates or jets. The baseline setup will provide a larger increase in fuel pressure as boost increases. If a lower slope (leaner) is desired, the volume plates and jets can be installed to tune the raising rate fuel pressure. The regulator utilizes a tunable pressure relief port to lower the slope of the curve to dampen pressure transitions. Kit comes complete with a graph page indicating the increase in fuel pressure as boost increases with and without the volume plates and jets installed.

NOTE: Tuning the rising rate is necessary to be able to tune out rich spots in the fuel curve caused by varying intercooler performance.

R&D FX HO Recreational Engine Cooling Kit

The R&D FX HO Yamaha Recreational Engine Cooling Kit was developed for high performance recreational uses where the O.E.M. thermostat will remain and be used. The R&D recreational cooling kit offers an additional ½’ water line to offer 25 percent more additional water volume flow through the engine and oil cooler as well as slightly increase water pressure. The O.E.M. cooling system has a very low water pressure (10 P.S.I. at 7600 rpm’s) and a low water volume flow. The new R&D kit will lower engine block and head temperatures by 15-20 degrees.

R&D Block Thermostat Kit Cooling Option

The R&D Block Thermostat Kit Option was developed to offer a way to run “Dual Thermostats” to the engines cooling system to control and allow warm up and pre heat cycles to take place. Engine Block and Head cooling on the Yamaha Engine becomes difficult when running high compression ratios, higher boost levels, and aggressively advanced ignition timing. R&D has found that multiple cooling lines need to be added to the cooling system to provide enough volume to keep temperatures stable and in check. The problem is the Single OEM thermostat is too restrictive and doesn’t allow enough water volume flow to reduce temperatures with the added cooling lines. R&D has found a way to add an additional thermostat that allows enough water flow volume to cool the engine and head and retain the OEM method for engine pre heat or warm up. The R&D Kit installs as a bolt on kit directly in place of the corrosion anode. Running two thermostats allows enough water flow to cool the engine properly. The R&D thermostat kit option will start to open at 120 degrees, and will allow full flow at 140 degrees. The OEM stock thermostat opens at 118-126 degrees and allows full flow at 140 degrees. Having two thermostats installed that are full open at 140 degrees, and flow enough water volume, will help to keep engine block temperatures to between an ideal 150-175 degrees. R&D has done extensive testing with the engineers at MoTeC both on the Dyno and on the water to determine that 150-160 degrees block temperatures is where the most peak power is, any hotter and power diminishes. The R&D dual thermostat kit will be a must have addition where engines are being run in extreme cold water and weather conditions. There has been many debates over these theories, and until now there has been no way around extended warm up cycles to bring engine temps up before high engine loads can be applied. R&D has found a way to end the debate and give everyone what they are looking for in a complete cooling system.

Several new features have also been added to the gauge design including an integrated wideband controller for simplified installation. By integrating the wideband controller within the gauge, the 02 sensor can now be plugged directly to the gauge via the 8 foot long interface cable. In addition, the included O2 sensor is compatible with all popular fuel types and can be quickly and easily calibrated to compensate for sensor wear, changes in atmosphere or other variables. A newly designed gauge body features a weatherproof o-ring seal that protects the gauge from water, dirt, or other elements. To allow for a customized look, each kit also includes 2 gauge bezels (black/silver) and 2 faceplates (black/white) that are completely interchangeable. Take the guess work out of tuning, recommend by R&D to tune all high performance 4-stroke watercraft.

KEY FEATURES:

• The only 100% digital wideband air/fuel ratio technology available (Patented)

• Water Resistant 52mm (2 1/16”) round dash-mountable casing is perfect for automotive, powersports, marine, and demanding racing applications.

• Built-in “Direct Digital™” Wideband Controller reduces wiring and simplifies installation.
