If you do go with the 120ST and want to upgrade the cams, look into T-man, S&S, Woods, Fuel Moto etc. The 266's do put out better max power but are not the best for everyday riding. Talk to a reputable builder about cam choices for where you want the power. Another option is to just keep the 259e's until the 1yr factory warranty is up and you can use that time to do some thorough research. Bottom line is that if you are going to change cams from the start and void the factory warranty on the engine do it with a better cam than the SE266. Just my 2 pennies
Hope they take care of you and good luck!
This dealership has done me good so far. I trust them more than the other local dealer.
That may be because I have a Club Brother who works there, and I am close friends with other members of the staff, or it may just be they do good work and actually care. I don't know. So far I have been happy with their work.
The only reason I was thinking of the SE266 is because that turns the motor into the 120R. If there are better cams out there, I am willing to listen and learn. What I am looking for is good response at the low end, but mostly good cruising power.
Currently, I like the way the bike responds. But a little hotter along the same curve would be better. Here's what my latest dyno looks like.
Max Power 97.12 bhp @ 4918.6 rpm, Max Torque 117.88 Ft/lb @ 3865.5 rpm
Those numbers are with 53K miles on the motor.
Good pull starting at about 2k, but the real power comes on around 2700 and goes until about 5K.
Most of my riding is on the freeway, so good cruising response is where I want it, but I like being able to pull onto the freeway and not have any trouble keeping up with the rest of The Boys as we accelerate into traffic though. I don't need to be a Stoplight to Stoplight Demon though. I'm not into 1/4 mile racing.
