The Andrews 48 would be my pick for stock bagger cams.. I wouldn't even consider the 211's..the 555's and 777's would be more for hot rods than stock baggers.

    You'll need more compression with the 555's and the 777's,..................but the 48's are a good choice.

Dang my 1,200 lb trike is a hot rod :smile:. Running the 555 with no compression bump and I pull a trailer, nothing but miles of smiles. I have no problems pulling away from a stop light or going up hills, I've been quite pleased with it. Quite a few others who have the Triglide are running this cam with good results.

I still don't think it would fit into the best performance cam for a stocker catagory, it might not have problems pullin away from a light til you pull up next to someone with a proper setup..

 :agree:

 Very happy with the 204s i put in my otherwise internally stock Road Glide. Did the TTS v-tune, tweaked the timing just a touch in the cruise area and it's all good. Lots of roll-on power from any sensible speed and gear, gets 40-42mpg in my out-n-about riding on 89(E10)-91 octane fuel. Valvetrain is very quiet and it should be easy on the valvetrain long term since it's considerably lower lift than the newer cams.

SE204, TR555, CR575, 48, 57, and the 54..  Any of these would be a performance improvement but , some may be a better fit for your riding style.

Have you thought about the new 57h's from Andrews, from my under standing  they designed that cam for the 103's. If it works as good in the 103 as the 48's do in my stock 96 inch you will not be disappointed.

I am going with the 57 from Andrews. As a matter of fact I just got em in the mail for $254, free shipping and no tax.

We have installed many of the T-man 555 Torqsters in stock 103" with great results. The 600SM work well but like a little more compression (10:1 to 10:3.1). In my opinion the SE211 cams in a stock 103" would be very "soft" down low without added compression.

No matter what you choose (assuming it is right), a proper tune will be necessary to wake it up!
