    While searching, I found an old post showing that showed that you have/had a 95" and used 54 cams. I have a similar set up.

    Before doing this, my mechanic said that my MPG would not suffer much if I did not use the extra performance. That's not what I experienced. I went from mid 40s to mid 30s. The bike seems to run strong, just hotter. BTW, I have a 2006 wide glide (6 speed tranny)

    I know it seems silly to talk about increasing power and worrying about fuel economy. Its more of a range thing than an economy thing. Also, MPG is kind of like a person's blood pressure. It is an indicator that something else may also not be good.

    What was your experience? Did you later do something else with it?
