St st st stages

What is a stage other than Harley Marketing?
I know stage one is intake and exhaust
Is stage 2 cams? Someone please enlighten me so I too will know what stage I sit at. Life is a stage!

2011 Road Glide Ultra, Andrews 57H, VeeTwin Performance street port, Big Sucker Intake, Rhinehart 2/1 w 4" muffler, Power commander V, Paugcho 17" bars, Stock seat recovered with leather, Michelin Comander II 140/80B front, Yokohama Envigor 205/60/16 rear. It's better on the dark side.

"Staging" is not exclusive to HD as most engine manufacturers provide stage kits.

As far as HD goes, you can look up the stage kit part numbers and look at the differences.

In theory, each stage is an addition to the previous stage, however, in practice from HD each stage kit takes you from stock directly to that stage.

In order to do it incrementally, you'll need to know what each stage consists of, and purchase those things separately.

Good luck.

Dont know about Harley stages but S&S is a good guideline

1 is intake and exhaust : high flow air cleaner and different exhaust

2 is 1 plus cams and push rods

3 is 2 plus big bore kits

4 is 3 plus ported heads and upgraded fuel system

like anything else you don't have to do all of the previous for one of the upgrades

Ok. I'll have cams and heads done soon. I already have an aftermarket intake and exhaust. I guess that puts me at stage 2.5. lol.

Just be careful Norm not to over inject this build since you are not doing the cylinders. Keeping the flow speed up along with the amount of fuel/air is important too. I seen people actually lose performance by going with a larger throttle body than what they needed. By intake, you might have meant the air cleaner, not sure.

My bad. Yeah just the big sucker air cleaner. Not sure why they call them intakes. I won't go any bigger with the TB until I need to. I got the bug. I did it when I was into rock crawlers too. My rig took 15 years to get where it is now. Slow and steady wins the race and keeps me entertained as I work.
