I believe the Andrew 26 was the replacement for the Andrews 21s , because on very hot days like over 90* the 21ís would give you engine pre-ignition when you accelerate it hard .

I second the mighty Andrews TW21s cams....Great torque monsters, comes in early around 17-20 and pulls hard throughout the powerband....Check your Cam tensioners or replace to SE kit!!! Good luck!

S&S 510, you have a carb so it will be an easy tune, replace the tensioners and cam bearings while you are in there.

Been doing a ton of research on this same subject for my dyna, I bet if you did the same research that you would conclude that for a cam only 88, you would be best to go with a S&S 509 or andrews 21. I decided to go with the S&S 509, cyco shoes, bearings all around, going through the rocker boxes to install rock outs, check the breathers, button her all back up.

No. 26s come on about 500 RPM off idle with less cranking compression, which is why they're a better choice for 95" builds with higher compression, like mine. 21s are a good choice for stock compression. 21s and 26s will both pull to top RPMs. I ride with two guys that run 21s in their 88s w/Stage 1 mods, and they're happy with their cams. .

Don't be ridiculous. You have been drinking the kool-aid so prevalent on this site and other similar sites. Your motorcycle is plenty spunky enough as is. If you look at my ID, you will see all kinds of crap that cost thousands of dollars to install (I did not do it, as I am the second owner). It all works just fine, but when is any of it necessary? Never.

Probably better engine breathing and mufflers are justified, possibly an engine fuel-management module. Beyond that, don't be a fool.
