No you are not. If things should match, they SHOULD match. However, I had to go the other way because I HATED those studs. Started when I had to change to a Reach Seat (no studs), then got rid of the Saddlebags (for more than one reason but the studs was one BIG reason) and replaced them with LeatherPro bags. Sill have the tank bib on but just havn't taken the time to find what I want to swap it out with. If you could find the studs (did not look to see if H-D sells them seprarately), I bet Lonnie at Grasshopper would put them on one of his Backrests for you. Great backrest for the price.

BTW, welcome to the Forum and the '18+ Heritage Owners Club.

I commute in the DFW MetroMess, with much more stop and go than I would like. On the road I really prefer secondary routes as opposed to the interstate. Usually the super slab is for when I am on a tight schedule or there is no viable alternative.

The horsepower cam looks inviting when viewing dyno charts, but who is really riding a Heritage at 4,000 to 5,000 rpm regularly enough to justify it? Iím glad our rides can do it, but after hitting the limiter a few times I wondered how many here have gone for the horsepower over torque.

Me too! Hopefully at 1K service if funds allow. My stage 1 107 pulls like a freight train. They say a cam upgrade does more for performance than anything. Stage2 on my bike will be N A S T Y !

Torque cam on my 114 Heritage, everything else stock.

10 K miles on it so far, could not be happier.

Torque cam on my 114 Heritage, stage II with Rinehart slip ons.

41,000 + miles and it is great. Bike pulls like an ox. I know most don't but, I pull a camper with mine. I crossed the Smokey Mountains with the camper, 6th gear, cruise locked on at 70, never lost more than 2 miles an hour. I love it.

Torque cam with about 15,000 miles and zero regrets. Great on back roads and my daily commute at 85+. Pulls strong from 1800 to 4800 rpms which is stupid fast in 6th gear. HP cam might be fun once in a while, but the torque cam covers you all day in every situation. It’s a nice arm straightener.

I also got mine in Sept 2017 but was trouble free until about a month ago. Thought I had gotten lucky, but not so much 😕. Odd thing is that mine only does it when Iím riding. It can sit in the baking sun all day and no condensation at all, but after an hour or so riding and it starts to appear. Hopefully the dealer will replace under warranty, but curious whether anyone else experienced the same thing?

Thanks Old Timer, Pothole and Thingfish! That was exactly what I was after; the experiences of Heritage 114 owners who installed their Stage II with Torque Cams. Now to sort AC and pipes.


Anyone tried the classic S&S teardrop with Bassani True Duals yet?

[QUOTE=TxSpeedster;18300639]Anyone tried the classic S&S teardrop with Bassani True Duals yet?

That sounds like a nice combo. Iíve had S&S teardrops (carbs too) in the past and always happy with the looks and perf. As for Bassani, I have extended personal experience with their Neighbor Hater slip ons with a 114 Heritage and am a big fan of the sound and perf. I had their DNT on a RK and loved those too...True Dual would be a great look on the Heritage...Iíd love to hear them if you go for it.

Happened on my '11 Fatboy and my '18 Heritage. One of the factors that will influence future purchase decisions.
