hot cams run like $120 on ebay.You'd have to check with your honda shop for prices on install.

if it's anything like putting a reg cam in..you probally could install it yourself..it's really simple.

It is simple, the hardest thing is setting the timing chain.

as long as you get the piston on top dead center on the compression stroke..and your cam sprocket markings are set right..and your lobes are facing down..shouldn't be too hard..at least thats how i do it on any motor i rebuild :)

A 300ex 250x cam has 4 lobes.Because it has 4 valves.

300EX has 4 valves. I don't know how many a 250EX has. Never mind Billy beat me to it.
