upgrade

Hi all.
After researching, I either can not find what I am looking for or what I find is over my head
I have a stage 1 with SE breather, Fulsac headers, SE mufflers, and all dynotuned.
So, I was looking to see what an upgrade to cams might do, and will that quiet down the motor a bit. I have wrenched on my bike and can follow good instructions if need be.
Suggestions?

If you have the service manual for your bike the instructions to do a cam install is in the manual!.
You should replace the inner cam bearing when doing a cam mod and you need a cam bearing removal/installation tool to do this.
If you don't have adjustable pushrods in your bike then you will need to either take off the rocker assembly to remove the pushrods or cut the pushrods and replace them with adjustable pushrods.
A low end mid range torque cam is the best choice for the touring model bikes and if you stay around .555 lift it isn't as hard on the valve springs and will keep the top end a little bit quieter the a higher lift cam.

I do have the manual but at this point dont feel confident enough to do it.
I was thinking of having the dealer do the install and then dyno tune. I guess I dont want the dealer to oversell things.
Overall, I would like a bit more of everything. I am not a speed shifter or WOT and go all the time type. I just want it to be there when I need it or when I want it.

A Cyclerama .570, or an Andrews 48 are 2 good choices for plug/play cams in that 2013(?).

Pretty good offer right there. Changing cams and bearings can be a little intimidating the first time you do it yourself but it.s really not that difficult just a little tedious. Here's a good link that goes through it.

If willing to pull the heads, and some mild work in key areas, and a Cyclerama .575 is a home run also.

Hey Scott, what could someone expect out of the Cyclerama .575, headwork with 1.9" intake valves, 2n1 Fat Cats and heavy breather. Any guesses on Hp/Tq.?
