This is true, the Stage 2 cam raises hp the most in the upper RPM ranges.  Point is if you shift where the extra power is, then you get the extra power acting over each gear range.  You go quicker, a lot quicker.

Yes, you have to change how you ride the bike -- you have to become a wicker.  This has consequences for choice of oil, maintenance frequency, durability etc etc.

If you want "more" and you don't want to change anything about how you ride the bike, consider a Stage 1 cam or maybe simply doing the rest of the uncork mods and leaving the cam completely alone.

Stage 2 cam makes you change how you ride the bike (UR a full bore wicker now)

Wick (to, v) refers to aggressively yanking the throttle open on a motorcycle. snowmobile or waterski.   Used to reference other aggressive adjustments of power, volume, etc.

Wick'd  (slang - general use, motorcycle)  Used for reference to aggressive style of riding on a powerful bike.  Not to be confused with "wicked" which pert little girly girls use to refer to various and sundry appearance or behavior related items.

Stock silver 2002 ls650 with small saddle bags. Looks like Granny's old worn out bike, nothing special to it at all.
(all mods except BIG piston and carb change have been done, but do not show)

A wicker is someone whose right hand is permanently welded in the 3/4 to Wide Open throttle position.   Cheesy
