    Have a friend buying a '10 ultra classic & having a dealer installed 103 before he picks it up,sert,air cleaner & rush mufflers.He wants a 255 cam but i don't know what the cr on the 103 kit is,i'm afraid he may have hot start problems.If indeed that's the case,i was thinking andrews 21 or 26,but then there's the warranty issue.So that being said,any other se cam that's close?.He doesn't want to have to do cr's,offset crank gear,or any headwork etc.So 2 up,hilly-mountain type riding,bike will probably never go over 4-5k rpm,wants all the power from the bottom.

    255 is a good cam but IMO there are better ones out there. The Wood TW6-6 or S&S 551 come on just as early and don't fall off as soon as the 255's. Just 2 cents.

    While there are cams out there that will give a little more hp, the smooth lines, lowend torque and roadabillity of the 255 are unmatched. Will compare dyno grafts anyday.
    In my opinion.
