My guess is that if all that stuff was worn it will make a big difference. Is it a stock cam? I also image that it will just run smoother even if there is no gain in perfomance.

I have all those mods, exhaust, porting, 2mm overbore with Wiseco 10.5:1, (375cc) White Bros cam, new timing chain, air box top cut off and lid removed, new valves, clutch, jetting.

This bike runs good, about equal, at least within a whisker of an XR400, but has a better bottom end.

Spent about $1400-1500 getting it all done. Don't know if the performance was really worth it, but the bike needed a freshening, and I'm still much, much faster on it than my new KTM which has a lot of rough edges for the trail to be worked out.
