Buddy, If you want to try a 5005, I have one reasonably priced in the swap section.
Buddy, sorry for the non response. I liked the 5005 much better than the 27 for my needs. More low end torque and quieter. I don't feel that I have it dialed in just right yet. The Crane 300-2B, I feel gave even more low end torque. But it's been awhile since I had that in the bike. I've got the SE heads and used the SE HGs that I believe are .055 so the CR isn't what it should be. The engine is tore down right now and I'll be using thinner HGs with a possible head shave to get the CR up. Hope this helps,Evo1,It does and thanks as your input also confirms HTP's experience with his 5005. He shared some information via e-mail and on his advice along with Tim's, I'll try the 5005 cam first. Sounds like it may be a winner and if I need a bit more I'll have the 5010. A bit of advice if I may having ported SE heads on mine. With the 9.5 to 1 CP pistons and an .040 Cometic head gasket I'm at a true 10.5 to 1. After the porting was done and the chambers were worked, we had to deck the heads .010 to get them back down to 72CC's to make that happen. If I had to do this again I'd probably shoot for a bit lower compression somewhere between 9.5 to 10.0 max. I'll have to do some calculations to see what the thicker head gasket would do to lower mine a bit. I'll live with what I have for now until I have to pull the heads. With yours being down, or if you can feed me some more info on your current piston CR maybe I can help calculate what you have now. I'd also take your heads to a machine shop and have the cc's checked before doing anything else. Then we'll know if they have to be decked or not.Buddy....
Not Yet Tim,Still waiting and still waiting for a set of exhausts to get done with ceramic coating. Going to play with the carb a bit over the weekend. Went on a short trip and averaged 34mpg @55mph or so. I know she's running fat, but I have to drill the air bleed out in the S&S before leaning out the intermediate jet. Also getting alot of feedback that the 5005 may be detonation prone at my CR, so thinking about trying to 5010 first. If that doesn't work, then I'll just stick a smaller VT or Woods 6 in her and tune from there.
Running mine ported by wfolarry @ 10.5 to 1 with a .040 Cometic head gasket. The heads had to be decked .010 to get them back down to 72cc's after the chambers were done. 9.5 CP pistons were installed, so the chamber volume on the SE heads raises the CR 1 point. I have no pinging or detonation problems on 93 octane Shell with the Dyna 2K ignition. I'm getting away with some of this due to the overlap on the VT EVL5015.As you know there is a cam swap gonna happen pretty soon to try and calm this engine down a bit. We'll see what happens then.
