Default Andrews 26 vs S.E. 203

I got A deal on a S.E. big bore kit with cams. Also bought S.E. hybrid cam plate/oil pump kit with hyd. chain adjusters. Bought a set of 26's also. I have a 05 Roadking, that I ride mostly 2 up. Which cam do you guys think would be better for my riding style. I a thinking The 26's.

I have the 26s and I like them. Never tried the SE 203 cams so I can't comment on them.

I have 26's as well and really like them. I think the 26's might be better compared to the 204's, whereas the 21's would compare to the 203's. But then again, I usually have no idea what I'm talking about!

I would do the 26 over the 203, but that's just my opinion.....

It's a Fat Cat (2-1, singular, uno, one), so why do you say Fat Cats?

203's are great for reliablity but ARE JUST A TOUCH BETTER THEN STOCK, if you want power 26's

I have the Andrews 26s in my 08 RKC (96"). I recently bought an Ultra Limited with the 103". The 96" with the 26s blows the doors off the 103". Mind you, the Ultra is heavier and still stock, but it gives you an idea of the performance you can expect.

I put the 26N's in my bike when I did the hydraulic cam shoe adjustment upgrade. 26's perform great.

I went back and forth between the 21s and 26s. Can't compare to the 203s but can say I am happy with the 26s.

The Andrews 26 cams have an even more conservative profile than the 203s. (.490 lift, 226* duration, 20* overlap vs .510 lift, 234* duration, 35* overlap). On paper, the 203s should outperform the 26s, as long as you've got the right tune and exhaust. Either one will work well in a touring bike, both cams are good examples of taking a stock cam and adding just a little lift and overlap to achieve good gains.
