from what i have experienced and read, cams (especially hotcams stage 1s) are a waste of money UNLESS you do some head work (port and polish) with them. Stage 1s require no spring changes or anything. To me this means that they will make no real horsepower. I had stage 1s on a crf 80 i used to have and the only difference they made was the amount of compression i felt at the kickstarter. I felt no added performance and to be quite honest was pissed that I wasted the $250. The pipe that i put on made more power than the cams. So the only way cams will make you happy is if you go with a wild grind that causes you to upgrade springs and such along with doing some headwork. In my opinion save your money for a pipe, it will make more power and will not feel like wasted money.
