« on: Sunday, September 11, 2011. 11:23:23 AM. »
 How are these working out in stock 96"2009 Ultra two up most of the time?What RPM do they start pulling at?Are the woods 555 and HQ Hurricane 500 better cams for this kind of riding?


      Thanks

Don'tknow about the 96" but I had them in my 88" FLHTC Carbed. I felt them start to come on around 1500rmp and top out around 4000 -4500 rmp. Had a lot of grunt to them for pulling out of the hole if you needed it and worked well for passing at hiway speeds but my Fuel mileage dropped into the high 20's in town and low to mid 30's on the road. I ride kind of aggressive but I don't hammer down on it. I had the motor replaced in july of 08'. I left the engine stock. I miss the extra torque but I'm happy with the mileage, I get around 40 in town and about 48 on the road.

Thought the 204 cams were mid range cams that needed more compression to work well in a stock 96 inch heavy bike?
How can they come on at 1500 rpm?

the 204 works great for stock compression and up to about 9.8 to 1 or so, if you plan to increase your compression maybe you should go with a 211 cam, they are both good mid range torque cams but the 211 is the one for higher comp. Conmag if your riding an ultra 2 up, maybe you should look into what others are saying about the 255 cam, I have it in my 08 ultra, i really like it for a heavy bike and I get 98lbs of torque from it.

I have an 04 Ultra 88"er with 204's and love them! They really come in around 3200 RPM on up but they pull real hard! I couldn't be happier with a kinda stock motor with a few mods, pipes, airbox, Stage 1, fuel pak. Mileage didn't take a hit at all, getting around 45 to 50 depending in the roads and how hard it run.

I have the 204's in our 08' RKC and like them quite well. Pulls nice in the higher gears with light throttle roll ons from 2000 rpm, maybe lower than that but I downshift if the rpm's drop lower than 2000. Pulls real strong from 2,500 to 5,800 when hammering it. Dyno's at 91hp and 101tq with the 204's, SE pushrods, Rush slip on's, SE backplate and K&N filter, TTS Mastertune.

Can't say as I would recommend the SE211's for a late model, higher geared, heavy touring rig. I have the 211's in our 98" 06' Heritage Softail and even with 205ccp those cams don't hit real hard until around 2,800 - 3,000 rpms. When they do come on though they really hit hard. Ear to ear grins !  Dyno's at 108hp and 112tq but not as usable a power band for normal riding as the RKC has with the 204's.

As usual my throttle hand has a way of shutting my brain off,(yuk, yuk, yuk.) 211 cam would not be the right cam for his bike, a 204 or a 255 would sure make for some nice  riding on a touring bike.
