i dont know too much specifically about bikes, but on cars (which i know alot more about) usually Hi-perf. cams will significantly inprove top and upper-midrange power but usually at the expense of low-midrange power and some idle issues (might have to bump up the idle) and youll almost definitely have to play with the fuel to get it running well. Cams+exh/int mods done together make a big bump for upper end hp/tq.

Thanks for the reply. I kinda figured it, along with other stuff, would do........................ something. I was just wondering about their solo effort. What you said about the losing bottom end is what I don't want. I'd rather have bottom(low) end and mid range than top because i don't drag and realize that I can't explore the "true top end" without the risk of death or confinement&impound. Thanks again.
