The 204's are a well kept secret and an awesome bolt in cam very underrated IMO.

The idle & exhaust note rocks and the boost in power is just frosting on the cake ENJOY!

Here are the specs for the Andrews and Screamin Eagle cams

SE 204 Andrews 26

Intake open 22 9
Intake close 34 37
Exhaust open 52 43
Exhaust close 8 7
Intake duration 236 226
Exhaust duration 240 230
Intake lift .508 .490
Exhaust lift .508 .490
Overlap 30 16

The specs say the SE 204 will not fall off as soon as the Andrews 26

I couldn't be happier with mine either. Contrary to what others have said here, they do fall off quite quickly however. Great for pulling up the ramps onto the freeways but when you got on the passing lane and start your top end charge I find they lack. For 90% of my style of riding they are marvelous and priced right.

I'm guessing none of these come in a gear drive cam? I had SS510 gear drive cams in my 05. How does the SE or the Andrew compair? Not tring to start something, just asking.

Will some good headwork and a bump in comp help the top-end pull? Is it possible they are dropping off so quickly because they are running out of air.

Anyone got dyno sheets of the SE204 in a full 95 build with good heads? Im buying a bike with a 10.25:1 95 build with SE211 cams and think im going to be looking for a different cam and would be interested in seeing the results.

The 204's are a great cam for a bolt in. I couldn't be happier with the way my bike runs. I can post you a sheet but it's from a stock 96" engine since mine is a 2010 model. I'll post and you can take a look. Also the little dip at the beginning is gone. We worked on the timing a little and it took care of that little lag.

As I mentioned ealrier in this thread, I'm really considering these. That said, my bike with a stage 1, V&H Power Duals and 3.5" Rineharts was dyno tuned at 1,000 miles at 79HP,96TQ. I just wonder what the incremental benefit will be... As it is right now I'm only 5 off of this bike's HP and 7 off of the TQ. I know every little bit helps on a bike versus a car due to weight, but I feel like I'm within "spitting distance" here...

If your bike is a 103 you can change the exhaust to V&H power duals, Some good 4" mufflers, breather and a SEST from HD and install the 204's you should see 92 to 94 hp and 105 or more on TQ. Too many dyno's with this combo out there to doubt the end results.
In my opinion the 204 is the best bolt in cam that SE offers, I'm just say'n.

Those are really good #s from a stock 96. What other mods have you done to get those. Not saying there not right at all. Thinking of going with the SE204 myself on my 2010. I have stage 1, gutted cats and 4" SE muffers. Oh and Xieds.

Thanks

Fuelmoto dyno sheet for the TW 222 looks good, just saying.
