Yep I am. They come on early and continue to climb.
It is strong throughout the power band.
I have not found any weakness or flat spots in them yet.

I debated the cam thing long and hard and did a lot of thinking and asking about them and was initially going to go with tw-6-6's but then decided to go with 48H's but finally went with the 525's, and sold the other two. Feuling's are very underated.

The ramps are mild-er than are the Woods and SE's, which personally I think is easier on your valve train. I don't particularly like following the herd either, and that's another reason why I went with these.

This is what it said of them: http://www.directharleyparts.com/eng...yna-p-374.html
525 Cams - A real workhorse, designed to increase torque band width and increase fuel economy. Great bolt in camshaft upgrade for stock engines.
Produces strong low and mid range power with a linear horsepower and torque curve. Can be used with factory valve springs, pushrods and lifters. RPM 2,000 - 5,900
Very happy with them..

Thanks lionsm13, checking around like you did for best cam selection for my application. See you have the PC-5, I am using TTS, the fueling website has a 103 SE touring graph and down load for the 525 cams for TTS. I am running stock right now except for JackPot tuned headers and VH oval mufflers stock aircleaner.

Call Luke @Feuling, he is very approachable and knowledgeable. Frank Drago likes this cam as well as do many others, including 2 local tuners in my area.

As I said Feuling products are very underrated..
They make very high quality everything; oil pumps, lifters, cams, springs to name a few, but you know how herd mentality is?
One follows the other one, even if it's off the cliff..

I figured that I wanted to do what was best for my ride as this is probably the last one that I will have, at my age and I don't believe in punching out the stock motor too much.. Folks do,and that's alright for them, but I don't think that the HD motoros are really built to take too much abuse all the time, w/out crank work, etc. etc.

I didn't want to stress out the valve train w/too high of a lift of a cam and figued that the Feulings were about right. So far they are..

Did Luke at Fueling furnish you with a starting download calibration for your PC?

When I was looking at doing my last cams I considered the Fueling complete gear drive. If they are underrated don't tell them as they sure are proud of em'.... Ended up going with the Andrews 57 and love everything about them except the loss in mileage.

Steel I am running the 525 in a 2012 FLHTK Used map number 7 from the Fueling ignition map list under map list on their web site. We used Master Tune rather than SERT but otherwise no problem. Dyno numbers are 86 hp and 101 ft lb torque at 4500 ft altitude. VERY nice touring cam. Exactly what I was looking for. Go to the Fueling web site and look at their list of ignition maps and give them a call if you need to....good people to work with. Using a Rush 2 into 1 exhaust and S&S freed up air intake....nothing else done except tuning . Dyno runs were done on a cool moist day, so average would probably slightly less hp and torque.

I posted they dyno graph next on page two, following this post.... Nice curve now...very useful torque range for the FLHTK.

Just go to the fueling site and look in their maps list for the SERT maps that would work best...call them if necessary.
