Then there's the stage 5. The torque that these produce will require attention to the crank assembly because the torque goes well over the engines intended use.
Back to the original question about stage 2, always use parts that compliment each other. When talking stage 2 here we usually assume that the stage 1 (a/c and pipes) have already been purchased. We suppy a top end combination including cams, pistons, adjustable pushrods, ported heads, and tuning tool. We match the cam and compression to the model of bike, region where you live, and desired power.

I am completetly going insane on the replies around here.

Stage1 : Air Cleaner, Ignition, Exhaust and Mapping.
(all basic fixes and make a world of difference)

Stage2 : (open up the engine, minor tweaks)
Cams, porting, chips, add ons (eg. NOS)
Stage3 : Is a total upgrade of your engine, meaning you want more CC's.... so you do a big bore kit. Chop off the top end and replace it.

If you want reliable..... for example I would take a 96'
: High flow breather, slip ons (watch that you take out the Cats with stock exhaust), 255 cams (take your pick) and then put it on the dyno (or just a good map at a local dealer).

On that motor..... over 20Hp gains, should have over 100ftlbs torque and still has your motor warranty.

Keep that cruiser on the heels of any Sporty if not passing one.

Hey pipes, didn't see a intro. Tell us about your background and experience. 4 posts and you're telling people what to do on their bikes. Like to know where the knowledge is from.:
