Post Cams For Low End Torque Suitable For 103B Softy Lux? 
 
Folks - after some real world experience from you blokes......I wouldn't mind doing a cam upgrade at some stage on WhiskeyLux, and what I am after is mainly low down torque with a touch of mid-range if possible. My dyno tune transformed my bike and I guess I'll need to get it redone if I go ahead, but some extra low grunt would be great - especially two up. My tacho never really sees stuff over 3500rpm....I just cruise with lower revs, so are there any stand out cams people can recommend for my style of riding?

My understanding - which is limited, is that I'd want cams with no more than around 220-240 degrees of duration, which would give me that low end grunt....with a touch of mid range. Does that sound right? If so, what are the differences between say fitting Screaming Eagles as opposed to say S&S cams....or Andrews etc etc? I imagine every maker produces a range of cams for different riding styles.

Keen to know what others have fitted and how else it might have effected your ride...eg. Noise levels. Imagine I'll get more bark which I can probably do wthout!

A few of us are running SE 255, I am happy with the cam in my Fatyboy, I am 120kg and it gets me going

along ok, not much left after $180. There will be numerous opinions on here about cams but I do know the

255 work for me.

255s is what the tech man here recommends also...
I have heard of 211s.....I had them in a 96 and was real ballzy down low. And also give a lovely little bump in the idle.....
I would look at the 255s if I wanted just that bit more.
