    I am considering SE 103 Stage 2 nad using the 254e cams instead of the 255. Has anyone used them. I would love to know where they make their power and what to expect.
    I have a 2009 Dyna Fat bob.

    My bike weighs 850 and I weigh 200.....I went with 255's and couldn't be happier....love the way it pulls......if the 254 is anything like the tw6-6 that I had in the bike previously...I think you would be much happier with the 255....

    The SE 255 cams INTAKE close at 25*.. Good cam for MY purposes, 09FLHR.. I like the added lift and the early close of the intake,puts the power-band (lower RPM power) where I can enjoy it on the heavy bike..

    Now on my FXDS, I liked the power band in the Mid and Upper RPM range so I went with a intake close that had a bigger number..

    Intake open and close is NOT All that is needed to look at but it is a start..

    When looking for a cam that HAS Low End Torque at Low RPM, The intake closing is where to look..
    IF intake closes above 36/44/50* these are considered Higher RPM to get torque the RPM band is up, meaning you have to REV the engine to get INTO the power area...

    There is a 4*(+ or -) wheel gear that changes the complete Timing Of open and closing the vales... this takes a little Study to apply BUT get results...

    I think Steve07 uses this gear to make his power come on earlier on a later intake closing cam..

    Making the later close on the intake close EARLY for more low end torque (lower RPM)..

    I have the SERT and am planning on a dyno. The dealer is running their winter special. $1450 for 103 stage 2 and Dyno included. Some say woth tis kit and the 254e cams I should not bother with compression releeses. Do you agree?

    I am a little green to this. What exactly does changing the compensator do?

    I see. Thanks.
    I have been talking to two different dealers and they both say they never install compression releeses on a stage two kit. They said I would be wasting my $ especially with the 254e cam. You guys seam to disagree?
