Not entirely true. I am using a Faito crank in a Vietnam Exciter (same as SMX 5 speed) and it does work with a minor modification!Just a question bro, why don't you want to try the Faito Cams? What's the brand of the crankshaft that you installed in you T135? Here in our country for the Sniper MX (5 speed T135) there's no available crankshaft that would fit.
Faito Cams don't make the power curve that im looking for, Im just running stock crankshaft i will intall one next year.Just a question bro, why don't you want to try the Faito Cams?

I compared my bike against another LC185What a wonderful modification u got there bro!!!
I'm interested with the list of ur cam shaft. u need to try another one.
Faito Low Cam Advance . In order to get the best perfomance, need to give little bit advance during adjust magnet marking, use I insted I-I.
Bro, u must try this cam.
Nice mods, BTW Faito EVO Cam the early this year production. But the Faito Low Cam Advance is the latest model.I compared my bike against another LC185
using different valvesprings, valves and Faito EVO cam (is EVO the Low advanced cam?)
No im still currently using the UMA cam at them moment unitl i go shopping and get a new one!And what was the outcome of this comparison? I take it you used the CMS..........
(ATTN: I don't want this to turn into a "best " cam debate)i think faito and Vixion are a bit cliché, to make an engine perform better then others you must do something different from others
....Then keep it secret hahaha there are plenty of Camshafts that haven't been reviewed for example the Low advanced Faito cam is how many degrees? an interesting comparison would be to use the High Speed Racing high lift advance cam against Faito Low advance cam but not many people are willing to experiment and try another cam to compare...
Also a Camshaft can be very deceiving you may have a cam shaft that start really working at about 7500rpm and it feels really strong when it starts working.. but also you might have a cam that starts working at 3000rpm and feels a lot more torque and smoother, so it doesn't feel as powerful....
A perfect example:
UMA highlift Cam vs CMS cam
The Uma racing cam feels very fast because it starts working very high in the revs kicks in very powerful all at one time my motorbike still has the same top speed of around 150km but when using the CMS cam the power delivery begins at 3000rpm and wraps on smoothly and it still has the same topspeed of 150km it doesn't have the poweful kick that the UMA does ( only at high revs) so when comparing them the CMS cam would always get a good 50m!!!! off the start (we were roll starting in 2nd gear if starting off the line maybe a good 75m!) and because it the CMS cam has the same top end power as the UMA cam has the CMS can hold it's lead.....on a track with a lot of turns and off and on the throttle CMS would make UMA look silly!
But saying all that UMA is still a good cam and it FEELS more poweful but it's not.
...>>>really off to make a cup of tea after that
Haha........understandable. You want find me swapping bikes with some "yo-yo" I don't know either. Looks like I REALLY do need to drive down for a couple of days to do some serious back-to-back testing with 3 different set-ups! Numerous different cams. different displacement, western food.............damn, sounds like a kick in the pants.No im still currently using the UMA cam at them moment unitl i go shopping and get a new one!
The result is Uma beats Evo i don't know what the Evo actually does and where it kicks in though i don't swap my bike over with local riders so i didn't get to ride it, just know that my bike goes a lot better. also his exhaust was factory but cut out with a big front pipe but he had power to weight ratio againt me as he was using Suzuki Raider rims and he is a little man,
I like comparing with me and my fathers bike it's much more easier to see the difference in modifications as we know that theres almost no difference apart from i have about 1-3m a head of him on my bike and when we swap bikes theyre about the same..... thats just because i weigh about 10kg less
Im Glad you like the CMS cam!(ATTN: I don't want this to turn into a "best " cam debate)
Sadly im going to be heading off to Perth Australia for my first time,Haha........understandable. You want find me swapping bikes with some "yo-yo" I don't know either.

Bingo! My thoughts exactly. Couldn't have said it better myself.Im Glad you like the CMS cam!
Yea i agree about the uneventful side of the Uma cam but what i thought when using the UMA cam compared to the CMS is the torque,
The Uma cams peek torque is incredibly high in the Revs and as for the CMS cam it has a lot more torque (instant crack) at mid range and it still has the top end torque so the power curve i could imagine would have a nice smooth curve where as the UMA only has torque at High RPM so the only time it the power kicks in is when your really hammering it at 7500rpm+
Best way to describe what i mean, is if the UMA cam was cruising along at 100km then you change to 4th gear and wrap the throttle on nothing will happen till high revs then you go "wow now im going very fast"
Where the CMS if you changed to 4th then wrap it on you just pick up speed straight away you dont have to wait for much to kick in.
