103HO SE 255 Cams

After researching different cams that would get me the performance I wanted out of my 2016 RGS, I went with the SE 255 cam set, new SE tappets, SE adjustable pushrods, and new cam bearings. I already had V&H Monster Rounds, VO Naked Intake, and the FP3 installed. The dealer I bought the bike from did the work on installing the cams. I got the bike back tonight and took it for a ride. All I got to say is WOW! What a huge difference from stock. The tech also started an auto tune from the one I was using and added the new cam spec and changed the throttle response to the FP3. I am very pleased with the torque from these cams. It pulls hard from a stop all the way up to 5K rpm. If you want to race or burn the tires, this is not the cam to get. I did not want that. I wanted a more torque while riding 2 up and keep the reliability and these cams fit the bill. I also need to give Swomack a shout out and thank him for the advice since he is running basically the same setup and he was the one that gave me the info I needed to make my decision.

Swomack doesn't know what he is talking about. He is a Californian transplant to Texas............Of course I'm kidding, glad you are enjoying the new found torque. Many happy miles of riding.

I had these cams in at first, definitely an improvement over stock.
Glad your happy with it, Swomack is the greatest Californian ever

I've got myself the SE Stage II Torque Kit that includes the SE8-447 cam for the M8. I must say that I love it. I am really happy with it. Just I few miles though as I did it this Xmas.

IMO there's nothing better than the feeling of torque off the line on these sleds, best move performance wise I made, it's makes the motors feel way more powerful, stock they feel pretty feeble, enjoy the new found power.
