You are talking about a cam position sensor?

What are you hoping to gain by having one? and what cams are you going to use that will have the function to trigger the sensor?

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

standard cams, hence why i am asking if anyone has installed one before and looking for some pics / info of their install. i will be looking to use a lobe as a trigger.
I'm new to the bike, could you expound in laymen's terms your full intention, as in what is the desired out come. More HP, torque, higher rpm's or just because you thought it would be a neat project, you like to tinker and your plan is world domination with this modification.

If no one else has actually done it then that's fine, ill sort it out.

if you want all that buy a later bike, youll need some sort of piggy back sytem to feed back to the ecu,

the reason you wont fin an answer as its pointless, unless you know something i dont, if so spill the beans!!!

I've actually done this to a few bikes in the past. All custom of course, and somewhat of a royal PIA.

So, do you mount the pick up on the drive element (crankshaft?), or on the cam(s) themselves?

If you already have a crankshaft position sensor, you also know the position of the camshafts, as they are driven from that point in a specific ratio (1/2 speed). If you are using the crankshaft, you have twice as much positional accuracy, since the gear is twice as big -- more movement for an equal movement (in degrees of rotation) on the cam.

The ignition sensor for the EFI has to know the crankshaft timing to allow the FI and spark to be delivered accurately..... even accounting for slop in the cam chain(s), you wouldn't be more than a couple of degrees 'off' true position, just calculating it from the crank.
