There are better cams out there. What year is the bike? What other mods?

A little more information on your bike (current upgrades) and how you ride (solo or two up, long scenic runs or bar hopping) would help. And what you're expectations are in a cam installation. Maybe what your future engine build include, if any (95, 98, 103, 107, etc inch upgrade and head work).

I've been running them thru a couple different motor upgrades.Good cam for stage 1 and exhaust.Pull thru 5k.You usually don't turn more than that anyway.Power comes in early. Cam it for the future if you plan on mods in another year or so.You'll like it if you live or ride a lot in the hills.

The S&S 510's will certainly work for you, but they come in a little late for my taste.
For a bolt in cam with stock heads, you might want to compare them against the Andrews 21 or 26, Headquarters 0034, or maybe a Woods T6.
I'm assuming by looking at the 510's, you're opting for gear drive vs chain drive. If that's the case, just make sure that whoever is installing confirm that the crankshaft runout is within tolorance.
Just curious, have you talked to a shop to see just what's involved when you install cams and the cost associated with it? (Fuel management, adjustable pushrods, tune, etc.)
