If I were to put a HC Stage 1 in my 98 XR600 is it going to cause me more headaches, maintenance and overall shorten engine life?

Will it offer that much added power and does this mod need to be carried out with other work?

I have recently installed one in my '93 XR600R.. About the biggest thing I have noticed is that the bike raps out faster. If you are used to riding with a stock cam, be prepared to re-learn your shift points, and time between shifts. My personal bike RPM's much quicker than before and I have to really focus on shifting sooner than I used to.
