Stage IV adds more horsepower to the already impressive Stage III upgrade. Designed to satisfy the high RPM, throttle twisting rider, the Stage IV upgrade delivers up to a 52% increase in power. For Milwaukee-Eight engines, this equates to over 120 HP delivered to the rear wheel, installed without removing it from the frame!

With the proper cam profile and free-flowing intake and exhaust, a big bore motor can be tuned to deliver the power to ride any way you like or to ride two-up while retaining that solo feel. Stage III is ideal for riders who want the largest engine displacement and increased power throughout the entire RPM range.
