    Well, it's been a few months but I'm finally getting the Cam and associated parts installed.
    I am pretty stoked.

    I've been grinning all year from the upgrades I did last winter. Hopefully, yours will exceed your expectations as well.

    Just got a call from the dealer asking about what kind of oil that I want in the primary and engine. The Maintenance manager got on the line and said that he really liked that "nifty little gizmo" in the primary (the Compensaver). He also mentioned that everything in the primary looked great. The bike should be Dyno-tuned sometime this week. I'm hoping all is going well with everything. I plan to ride the bike anywhere and everywhere when I get it back.

    I had new cams/ bearings, tensioners, lifters, push rods, oil pump and a Dino tune job. Also had leaking rocker box seals fixed
    In addition I had the primary cover removed to inspect the compensator with the Compensavor.

    First ride review.
    The bike pulls stronger and has a better and wider power band width. It is also quieter.
    The guy that tuned the bike must have moved the red line up because it doesn't cut out where it did before.

    You know what cams, SE 255. You suggested the 254's. My riding style is more conducive to the 255's.
    I did not get a Dyno sheet. Just got off the phone with the dealer. After 500 miles, I
    bring the bike in for another tune for peace performance an a print out of the Dyno tune.

    Ok! I just stopped by the dealer again to pick up the Dyno chart print out. It turns out that the break in period was a mistake.
    They said that the break in period was for new cylinders rings and pistons.
    They just forgot to give me my Dyno chart.
    Any way...
    Peak torque is 98.29 @ 3.7K RPM
    Peak HP is 85.72 @ 5.6K RPM
