Anybody have any negative results after installing stage 2 cams? I/E. decel popping,lower fuel mileage, etc?
The original stage 2 flash was horrible. Very skiddish and caused more ignition noise from the engine. I have heard the newer version of that tune is much better but the best tune to get your engine running it's best is from a custom tune with a PV3. You do get some decel popping but not too bad. My mileage did not change much with the stage 2 flash and when up a bit once I got a custom tune installed. You will still need to have the stage 2 flash installed with the cams and then have that map modified by Fuel Moto or CraigB. Craig did mine and my bike is running better than ever before. Also added a high idle feature to let the engine warm up quicker. There are cams that make more power but I'm happy with the stage 2 cams and the lopey idle you get from them.

What year is your bike?I also have the stage 2 and went straight to a canned Craig B tune. Yes more power but not smoke the tire off power and runs smooth. A definite difference between the stock and stage 2. Between changing exhaust, going to a full synthetic oil 15W60 and his tune no abnormal engine noise at all. It took a couple of hundred miles for the cams to settle in and I’m up to about 39/40 mpg. I had Vance and Hines on mine and no matter what I did I just wasn’t happy so I changed slipons. I had some decel pop and after the decatted headpipe, I had a cold start pinging that was annoying the hell outta me. That’s gone with the RCX slip ons. The problem is now I want more lol. So new valve springs and 585 cams or a 116 BBK down the road.
Yes, Indian of Sturgis installed ALL the Stage 2 components Rinehart Slimline Dual Exhaust system, Rinehart 4" Slip-on for Indian Touring, VooDoo intake, Indian Stage 2 cams, then flashed the Stage 2 Indian tune. Then I rode 200 miles Home to Montana, 3 days later flashed the CraigB Stage 2 tune, like night and day difference!Did you have to install the stage 2 tune from Indian first?
