Camshafts with your reground lifters

Increase the RPM limit of your Norton and reduce the danger of valve float with JS Motorsport Radius Cam and Lightweight Lifter kits. I have personally tested these components beyond 8000RPM.

JS Motorsport Radius Cams are superior to standard flat lifter cams in all respects. The 1-1/8" radius lifters allow the use af a broader cam nose (similar to a roller cam) to reduce stress and wear. See the broader nose of the JS cam on right (pointy stock nose on left).

Improved geometry keeps the cam from running past the stellite pad.

DESCRIPTION OF JS MOTORSPORT RADIUS CAM CAM LOBE LIFT

VALVE LIFT @ 0 clearance

DURATION MEASURED AT .040" CHECKING CLEARANCE LOBE CENTERS COMPARE TO FLAT LIFTER NORTON CAMS LISTED BELOW
JS0 - The perfect cam for stock street Nortons and stock broad power band performance with a slight overall improvement, stock springs OK. Smooth idle with good low end torque. BSA A65 Spitfire intake lobe profile on intake and exhaust. .345" .393" 268 104 Close to Stock Norton Commando cam but with slightly more lift and duration. For radiused lifters.
JS1 - hot street and all around racing for 4 or 5 speeds with strong mid range. Good idle but faster than stock. Requires racing springs for track. Great for 750s. This is a copy of the famous Axtell #3 cam but for lightweight radiused lifters. Note that Ron Wood achieved 84 hp with an Axtlell #3 cam in his 750 flat tracker. .352" .402" 276 104 Copy of Axtell #3 but for radiused lifters. Performance similar to Megacycle 560NR and 560-00
JS2 - full race cam with excellent mid & Hi RPM power for all racers with 5 speeds and hot street 850s & 920s. Best all around roadrace cam. Requires racing springs. Hot rod idle. Maria Costello won Daytona 2011 in 750 vintage class with this cam & beehive valve spring kit. Good for 9000 RPM with JS beehive springs. .375" .427" 280 105 Similar to the great PW3 but for radiused lifters. Improved with gradual ramps to eliminate valve bounce, prolong life and allow higher RPM (more info). Performance similar to Norton 4S, Steve Maney cam.
JS3 - for 5 speed all out racers, Sifton 460 grind. Rumpity idle. Requires racing springs. Used on factory sponsored Hi power US dirt track 750 short strokes. The ultimate HP Norton top end race cam. For stage 3 the lifters must be ground to 7/8" radius. .400" .456" 290° with 7/8 radiused lifters 106 Copy of D+ but for radiused lifters. Performance similar to Norton 7S. Good for maximum top end power.

Profile graphs

You must use radiused lifters with our radiused cams. Stock flat lifters will tangle the valves. Conversely, if you use radiused lifters on a cam designed for flat lifters you will lose duration and power. Stage 0, 1 & 2 cams use 1-1/8" radius lifters. For stage 3 cams the lifters are specially ground to 7/8" radius. Custom cams are available for 270 deg cranks at extra cost.
