    Hello! Im buying the 2012 Screaming Eagle Ultra Glide. Im putting the Vance and Hines Power Duels with the Monster Rounds and the Hi-Five Mach 2 air filter by Kuryakyn. Im debating on the 259e cams v/s some S & S Gear driven. Any suggestions? I keep hearing that the gear driven are noisy.

    I have had gear driven on my 05RG since 06 and have no problem with noise from the gears. Your new ride has plenty of HP and torque in stock form, you may want to ride it awhile before you upgrade the cams.
