A 750 or an 1100 engine would cure those blues. The 600 is ok not great. You could spend a fortune and still not be happy. After modding mine, Id just swap motors.

For just cams yeah. I was also factoring in the jet kit that would then be required to actually use them, but I didn't specify that. My bad.

You're good with the price. but a Jet kit is good even without the cams.

Lube the cable and the actuator on the inside of the sprocket (grease). You may have after market clutch springs, also. But the normal maintenance procedures above is a good start.

It dries out, so yes it could. The question to me would be, was the cable lubed prior to the replacement?
