The "bucket" rides against the cam and pushes the valve open. In order to keep correct cam to bucket clearence, the size of the bucket must change. I hope you like your stage 2's. I have the crowers and there great.

Here is a picture of the motor with the cams removed. The buckets are the round shiny things. It's actaully really tough to pre buy the replacements. You have to remove the old cams, install the new cams, and then use a feeler guage to determine the distance between the back of each cam lobe and it's corresponding bucket. Once you've measured that distance you have to determine if you need bigger or smaller buckets to make the distance between the two some given tollerance number that I don't know off the top of my head.
