So bike is in the shop....which cam?

17 RGU is currently in the shop for an oil pump issue. A few weeks ago I get a low oil pressure light flicker once. Take the bike in and the pump is replaced. A week later the engine is dumping. Now they can't figure out why its dumping and have torn the engine completely down. The shop is saying they'll stick a cam in it while they are in it.

I'm trying to decide which cam. Currently have fuelmotos 2/1/2 and RCx slip ons. Thinking either the Andrew's 460 or Woods 22x

We ride 75% of the time two up and in the mountains of N GA. I like tq but will wring the bike out as well.

Any thoughts?

Sorry to here about your issues. Fuel moto recently did a great review of most of the new m8 cams. There is also a great review the other forum with great results.

Good luck!

Big fan of Andrews cams, plenty of torque and getty up thru the power band....Plenty of other choices too, Woods, S&S, SE, Crane, etc...

the woods 22x spends same time above 110 ft.-lbs. as the andrews, but it's smoother power. don't know if they're both 6th gear pulls, though.

I ended up going with the Andrew's 640, the dealership could get it the fastest (tomorrow) for a Friday morning assembly.


Now waiting on Fuelmoto to get the tune, did not realize they were 7 days out, not sure how that will affect the dealership as they will need to run the engine

Where is the powerband on those Andrews cams?

Best choice IMO to do a torque cam, i did and it makes a helluva difference. brings in the power where you need it, good luck and keep us posted.

Sounds amazing! I dont see any reason to spin a Harley motor more then 5k anyway. Just my opinion. I honestly dont look at the tach. Its pointless. If you listen the engine will tell you when to shift and when she's done...

I concur with Andrews cams....on my 95 build, my TW26 comes early on and pulls hard....BIGTIME torque throughout the low range, perfect for a bagger and any two up riding....Granted, a fine tuner, any head work, AFR set with no spikes, takes into account....You will not be disappointed, smiling all the way. Good luck.
