    For the set up you have that is a great torque #. Are you pulling a trailer or sidecar? I know some are looking for more power, but I would be glad to have that much torque. Cams can give you more HP and torque but it might not be in the RPM range you like to run. I switched to gear drive on my 05RG and I gained more torque over friends running the same cams and chain drive.

    That's about right for a well tuned Stage I 96"er. You referred to "pipes"; OEM head pipe and mufflers? Not sure what you mean by "clear head pipes" but the OEM head pipe wroks well. You need a good set of slipon mufflers or just have your OEM mufflers re-cored with Fullsac baffles.

    More compression will make more torque. A set of Andrews 48 cams, set of good slipons and a retune will make a big difference.

    The stock head pipes on the 2009 should already be 'clear', unless you have one of the California 2009s that had Cats.

    I would call Fuel Moto and run it by them, they have seen it all and can point you in the right direction. See Fuel Moto USA.
