Honda SOHC High Performance Camshaft Details
 
Camshafts always raise a lot of questions: What kind of performance do you expect? What kind of top end power do you expect?
What kind of riding do you do? What kind of valve relief do your pistons have?
Below are some camshaft profiles you will enjoy without the headaches that monster cams can produce without background and experience behind you.

(Click pics above for an expanded view)

Here is the problem...

With 11 Cycle X Honda CB750 camshafts and more to come, camshaft installation knowledge would be helpful to your machine shop and to the customer knowing what to buy. 

For example: Unless a "drop-in" camshaft is being installed. The machine shop or cylinder head assembler will need to know which camshaft is being used. Some of the most common heartbreak stories we hear from the public is that a customer had their head ported with oversize valves and all the latest, greatest parts and the valves collided because the the camshaft was chosen lastly. With most "big boy" camshafts, valve to valve clearance and also valve guide seal to top spring retainer clearances are very important but are taken for granted occasionally and a catastrophic situation occurs. The Cycle X high-lift valve guides prevent the top spring retainer from hitting and the valve guide seal from falling inside the keeper groove area of the valve stem and cause potential oil usage. We don't want to get long winded about the well documented procedures with cam clearances and installation procedures. So, here is what we are doing...

  • All of our camshafts will now have valve to valve clearances with stock size valves.
  • All valve to valve clearances with oversize valves with all the cams and how far to sink the valves.
  • All camshafts that will require "high-lift" valve guides.
  • Installed heights and spring pressures for those heights.
  • This knowledge will allow you to change camshafts for performance desires without possibly doing all the mathematics again.
  • This knowledge will allow you to keep the sinking of the valves to a minimum and losing precious flow numbers.

 


 

 

 

We will be referring to this measurement when preparing a cylinder head for sunken valves.
"Valve stem protrusion"
Note:
Valve stem protrusion on a stock cylinder head with stock valves is about 1.700 ish.

This measurement is mainly referring to spring pressures.
"Installed height"
Note:
"Installed height" measurements specs will be seen on most valve spring packages. For reference, stock cylinder head, valves and spring installed height is 1.455 ish.

This photo simply shows valve to valve measuring location when big camshafts, oversize valves or both are being considered.
"Valve to valve"
You will need a minimum of .040 valve to valve clearance.
 

Honda CB750 SOHC High Performance Valve Springs & Details

This section will provide some basic guidelines, spring pressure comparisons and recommendations for some of the larger camshafts listed below.
Installed heights and such are a good start. But, installed height seat lbs is what we are going to focus on right now.
Generally speaking, the goal is to have 75-90 lbs of seat pressure with most performance camshafts.

A small comparison:
Stock K model valve spring installed height (1.455ish) seat pressure lbs (no shims)
50 lbs
Stock 77-78 F model valve spring installed height (1.455ish) seat pressure lbs (no shims)
60 lbs

Valve weight will also be a factor in making spring pressure decisions.
These valve weights are for Cycle X valves:
F2 intake: 47.5 grams.
F2 exhaust: 47 grams.
K intake: 45.5 grams.
K exhaust: 41 grams.
K oversize 33.5 intake: 49 grams.
5mm Kibblewhite 34mm intake: 38 grams
5mm Kibblewhite std exhaust: 29 grams
 
Note:
Do not use OEM stock upper valve spring retainers with higher pressure springs and performance camshafts on 77-78 "F" super sport models.


 

 


 

High Performance Valve Springs
(K & F models)


These Kibblewhite valve springs are the most common valve springs used by Honda CB750 SOHC (69-78) owners for years and years.

Stock valve spring installed height (1.455 ish) spring pressures with these Kibblewhite ENV-008 springs are:
65lbs (no shims)
80lbs (.060 copper shims)
180lbs @ 375 lift (no shims)
200lbs @ 375 lift (.060 copper shims)

Kit includes:
(8) .060 shims
(16) .015 shims


ENV-008     $69.95

 

 

 


 

High Performance Valve Springs for Large Camshafts (K & F models)

 These Cycle X, Kibblewhite valve springs are the favorite around here and with many pros world wide.
They are used exclusively when high-lift cams require valve sinking for valve to valve clearances.
The reason these springs are used is they will not require piles of spring shims to get desired pressures.

So, stock valve spring installed height (1.455 ish) spring pressures with Cycle X, Kibblewhite ENV-009 springs are:
85lbs (no shims)
90lbs (.015 shim)
105lbs (.060 shim)
75lbs with .030 sunken valves (K & F models)

Kit includes:
(8) .060 shims
(16) .015 shims

ENV-009     $109.00

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Highest Level Bee-Hive Valve Springs

These bee hive spring sets are manufactured by Kibblewhite for Cycle X years ago and are installed in some of the fastest Hondas worldwide. Combined with titanium rocker arm adjustor jam nuts and lightened rocker arms. You will have the best current valve train combination available.
Well, combine the 5mm valve kit to have the ultimate combination.
Installed height: 1.370 - 1.380.
Seat pressure: 90-95lbs.
Open pressure at 0.460 lift: 220lbs
Max lift: 0.460.
Specify "K" or "F" model.


ENV-010K for "K" models     $239.00


ENV-010F for 77-78 "F" models     $239.00


ENV-010-5MM for Kibblewhite 5mm kits     $239.00

 

 

 

 

 

(77-78) Honda CB750 F2, F3 Valve Spring and Retainer Combo

These Cycle X, Kibblewhite valve springs are the favorite around here and with many pros worldwide. They are used exclusively when high-lift cams require valve sinking for valve to valve clearances. The reason these springs are used is they will not require piles of spring shims to get desired pressures. So, stock valve spring installed height (1.455ish) spring pressures with Cycle X, Kibblewhite ENV-009 springs are:
85lbs (no shims)
90lbs (.015 shim)
105lbs (.060 shim)
75lbs with .030 sunken valves (K & F models)

Caution:
Honda CB750 77-78 K's and especially F2's have the potential of the keepers pulling through the top spring retainers and dropping the valve into the motor. Many people have felt this heartbreak for the past 30+ years. Honda's later model spring retainers are stamped steel, combined with a steep keeper angle, has only been addressed by complete spring kits costing hundreds of dollars, until now.

 We have been working with Kibblewhite and have developed these top retainers to cure this problem once and for all at a reduced cost. Heat is a problem in the F2 valve tranes, these new lightweight top spring retainers feature 8 holes on the top of the retainer. The purpose for these holes is to allow oil to drip down the springs to help with heat dispersion. Keep in mind, oil lubricates, picks up heat and carries it away to coolers and such. People in NASCAR use the same technique and it helps keep the valves well lubricated for longer life. These retainers are made from heat treated carbon steel for durability and strength. 11.25 grams per retainer!

ENV-011     Combo - $210.00

 

ENV-F2R     Retainers only - $119.00

 

Budget High Performance F2, F3 Spring and Top Retainer Combo

This high performance combo kit is similar to above, but a budget version. This kit includes ENV-008 and ENV-011.

Kit includes:
(8) .060 shims
(16) .015 shims

NOTES:
With this CX-5 high RPM long duration camshaft and 33.5 oversize intake valves, close attention to set-up is a must.
You will notice that the valve to valve clearance is in the danger zone. Sinking the valves a bit more and setting the running valve lash will help, but many builders do not want to sink more than .030.
One of the preferred methods to gain more valve to valve clearance without sinking more is reducing the outside diameter of the intake and maybe the exhaust valve on the lathe up to the lapping line on the valve face.
Recommend ENV-009 or bee-hive spring sets.

The intake and exhaust "ballpark" valve sink is .015 on our test head and valves. Sometimes you can achieve this small amount of sink by a basic valve job and adjusting your valve lash. Our 0 valve lash for testing is because some tuners will adjust running valve lash's to their own liking.
Cam tower clearances must be checked.

Cycle X Racing Cam Chain Tensioner
 

Cycle X #1 Full Support Racing Cam Chain Tensioner

Honda had it right the first time (well, almost).  Introducing the Cycle X version #2 racing cam chain tensioner. The geometry and design of the OEM Honda tensioner is perfect, except for the upper and lower wheels, which can disintegrate during racing applications and father time. Some of the slipper style designs in the past will cause problems with milled heads or cylinders, causing only the very top of the slider to make contact with the cam chain and the cam chain will also hit the lower metal pin (not good). By design, the lower wheel is very significant to keep the chain happy and stabile by applying slight pressure on both sides of the chain in the lower area of the case.  Designs that eliminate the lower wheel can and will allow the cam chain to slap, bounce and whip in the worst case scenario. Also, without the use of the lower wheel, 8 inches or 25 chain link pins are unsupported.  (In a perfect world, no more than 10 pins should be unsupported)  The upper area of the Cycle X design uses a slipper shoe that adds over 4 inches of added support. So, with the combination of Honda's OEM design, Cycle X's battle tested ingenuity, and using the latest zero friction materials that are unaffected by heat, problem solved!

Note: The photo on the left shows the Cycle X tensioner in a full cut-away to show the supported chain links.

OEM Adjustable Camshaft Sprockets

We all know why adjustable camshaft sprockets are used in the high performance world. But, stock motor configuration motors can benefit from these also. Have you ever tried to line up the camshaft marks after any sort of motor work or checking a few things? The marks usually never line up perfectly because of many reasons. One of the main reasons on a stock motor with any miles is cam chain stretch. The cam chain is like a rear chain. It stretches. So, install these modified poor man's adjustable OEM cam chain sprockets and realign your cam timing or install your performance cam.
