Moving HP lower in RPM range

Is there a cam or way to move my peak HP closer to my peak torque and carry the peak HP out further to max RPM with out the HP dropping off at top RPM?

Moving peak HP around it all about degreeing your cams.

Garth has a writeup somewhere on degreeing cams.

Im not quite sure what you want is possible though, that and I just have no idea.

if you were to shift the way the bike makes power, you will lose some in the other areas. IE shifting towards more midrange will usually cost you topend. Unfortunately you cannot have it all

An old trick for a bit more midrange punch is to set valve clearences on the larger end of their tolerences. Valves stay closed just slightly longer, capturing more mixture, very slightly boosting compression...viola mo' midrange
