I started thinking the other day and I was really wondering how a stage 1 hotcam would perform in my bike? I know alot of guys mostly go the piston and cam route but I don't want a high compression piston. Thats when it starts taking the fun out of it. They become a headache and you have to run high octane in them or race fuel...etc and I don't race the thing so I don't want to pay $7-9/ gallon or whatever its up to. Then on top of that it makes it harder to start and I'm sure the starting system will wear out faster as a result of this. They already have a starter clutch issue. So I have obviously decided against raising the compression. The main thing I am debating is how much low end torque will it lose and how much rev ability will it gain? Does it rev faster? I just wondered how many of you guys run these with stock compression?
