    1050 Tiger Exhaust cam in S3?!

    Hi All
    Has anyone fitted a 1050 Tiger exhaust cam into a Speed Triple. Ive just changed to a 2007 1050 Speed Triple to compete in Hill Climbing. I was Hill Climbing an old T595 and looking for increased low down grunt and someone suggested doing this to the T595. Not sure what the increase in torque would be and what top end power I would loose.
    Any thoughts?

    None.. Same cam..

    Look at the service manuals.

    Would bet several will disagree.. Let the manuals sort it out.

    They should be the same, anecdotal evidence that I've seen shows the Speed Triple cams produce slightly more power, we're talking 1-2hp. My mechanic put some Speed Triple cams in his Tiger 1050, and it resulted in 2hp gain. Considering he got the cams for free, it's hardly a good bang for buck investment.

    I'd suggest looking up the specs on the latest 13-16 Speed Triple cams. The alternative is an >02 Daytona 955 exhaust cam in your Inlet, and put your Inlet cam in the exhaust. That should build up your torque, and bump up horse power by about 10hp - mid 130hp range at the wheel...

    I'm sure I've seen someone on here showing figures that are quite different between the two, there is around 15hp difference I believe, I have owned both before and they ride differently, I will have a look over the next few days and see what I can find and get back to you.
    Cheers

    interesting read, but as I've just posted I'm sure I've seen figures on here saying different, approx 15 hp is quite a difference and surely more than a tune would produce.
    Has anyone done the 02 955 cam swap you suggest that has these power gains, I could be interested if reliability isn't an issue, it's really bottom end punch that I'm after, I have fitted an arrow lowboy which I'm hoping will help.
    cheers

    Excellent. My work here is done...

    In regards to your original question, comparisons between the cams in the 1050 Tiger and the 1050 S3, may also vary depending on which year models are being compared - or what year Tiger Cam was used in the S3. All the later model 1050s (09 and later) make more power than the original 05/06 models (when compared stock vs stock) despite there only being minor changes with each advancing model year. But, and the end of the day, the simplest and most cost effective way for you to increase the performance of your 1050, will be to do the Daytona exhaust cam swap, remap to suit, and switch the gearing to 18/45 to maximise your low end punch. Reliability wise, the Australian bloke who did the cam swap on his race bike, raced nearly 2 full seasons, and the motor never skipped a beat. He only stopped racing it cos he got a bargain deal on a HP4 imported from the US, which would've helped his competitiveness in the BEARS class of racing.
