Please, I'm not looking to compare cams, rather what you personally paid to have a shop do the install.

Thanks!

For $2K just saying.

One of my riding buddies recently bought a 2013 Road glide from a metric shop. It definitely has cams because it peels off like a beast. A group of friends did a long ride and he was ripping up the roads/highways. It was all low end torgue. Based on that, I'm assuming that he's running 222's. I can't think of any other cams which gives that much power on the low end.

I remember when you installed your 222's. Any issues or regrets? I was thinking about 555's but I think for the 2000 - 4500 rpm range which is where I live, 222's is perfect.
Only thing I regret is not doing the entire 107 big bore from the start.

Remember I'm running a 96" but the 222's transformed the bike immensely.

I'd stay away from the 555's unless at some point you plan on building up. Those perform a little better with a compression bump.

Not to steel your tread. But who can install the 107 kit in Southern Ca. I would love to have the kit but which shop will perform the work to Fuelmoto standards.

Not let this thread get away from the topic but that's a pretty straight forward install too.

Get a manual and buy or rent a couple specialty tools. Itís all about following step by step instructions. Good videoís out on YouTube as well.

Save the cash fo future upgrades.

Have an 'indie' do it. My dealer wanted over $580.00 in labor alone. Avoid the dealer. Or, take it to your local Indian dealer, lots of HD mechanics work there.

If they are doing everything... cams, inner cam bearings, lifters, adjustable pushrods... AND a full dynotune (not just a re-tweaked map), it sounds a little bit high....

Wouldn't hurt to get another quote....

Two thoughts...

1) This time of year, many dealers are doing service labor discounts, to bring work into the shop... check around.

2) If your quote(s) is including the cost of a full dyno tune, make sure the shop/person doing the tune has a really good reputation.... a full dyno tune, by someone who is not on their game, can be much worse than useless....

Good luck and enjoy the new power.....

A local Indie shop quoted me $1200 parts, labor, tune. This was for the Andrews 48.

anyone have any experience with Daytona Bike Week prices? last year I already had cams in my Softail so I wasn't looking, but saw that S&S was offering free "installs". I'd imagine that's just on slip-ons and whatnot, but if it turns out that's cams and pushrods, my bank account might take a small hit this March for the Road King
