SE204... If you decide to go to 95” later you can take it with you.

I have S&S 509 in my 2000 Heritage. I don’t have a tach but the power is perfect for the 5 speed gear spacing IMO. The sound is aLeo wonderful

I had S&S 510s in my '00, pretty good low end power and nice top end speed. An,d didn't effect my MPG too badly,

I put S&S 509G in my 02 Fat Boy. They are a good cam if the engine is basically stock otherwise. Gave it a noticeable gain in torque and a little bit of lope at idle. For sure have the flywheel run out checked and determine if you can go with gear driven cams while you are doing it. I see a lot of people say the cam chain adjusters lasted crazy long miles in their bikes, but I did my cams at 20,000 miles and the adjuster shoes in mine were in pretty bad shape. I was happy to get rid of them.

'04 tensioners are probably mechanical... Go hydraulic.
