One thing to watch out for with whatever cam you go for is, don't get a super duper lightweight flywheel. You just don't need them on the road and they aren't realy worth the hasle if you have a slightly lumpy cam because its the momentum of the flywheel spinning that keeps the engine turning over, so if you have a lumpyish cam and mega lightweight fly, you'll find the engine will stall when ever you stop at traffic lights or a junction etc. because the fly just isn't heavy enough to keep the lumpy engine turning over.
