CB1000 with CBR cams?

Is it possible? I've got a 1995 CB1000f(the naked bike) and from everything I've read here and elsewhere it had the same engine, minus the 6 speed and different cams, as the CBR1000 of the same year. I know the CBR made about 30 more horsepower than the CB did and if it's possible I'd like to swap cams for that lost power in my CB.

Well unfortunately I don't know the actual answer, but it is highly likely that they are indeed a direct drop-in for the cam swap. That was very common with many different manufacturers bikes during that time frame.


If yer really serious about improving it though why not get rid of the CB1000 for a newer 919? Much better handling & power to weight ratio...

I would, and have ridden the 919(actually found the for sale post on here today for it) but the CB is in the current fleet and while I love the 919, cost is sorta prohibitive lately. There is one in the near future though.
