Default I gave up....

Since some new evidence presented itself about the cams, I gave in. I bought a set and the Autotune module yesterday. So now on to that project........

Current toys:
2013 Victory Hardball - VM1DR cams, Lloydz filter, timing wheel, PCV-AT, 1/4 turn throttle, modified pipes

2008 Yamaha Warrior -Churchkey intake, V&H Bigshots
2007 Scion TC 5spd
1997 F150 -used to pull my car hauler
1989 Nissan Hardbody -absolutely indestructible
1968 Coupe Deville -all black, so nice

Doing it yourself?

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Looking forward to hear how it all comes together for you. Installing the cams yourself? That's my next winter project....

Yeah. I read the section of the manual on it. Doesn't sound too different than any other engine. Should be tedious but not impossible. Taking off the throttle bodies looks like the biggest headache.

you don't take throttle bods off to install PCV. I know this is not your bike mode but you'll get the idea. Even if your doing cams.

Every thing but the cams and autotune is already installed on the bike. Some people say you don't have to take off the throttle bodies to do cams, some do. We'll find out soon. .......

to do cam's you have to remove the rocker box's and the timing cover. Maybe the vic shop or Lloydz or youtube have video

Remove throttle body to get the rear valve cover off? I plan on removing the rear engine mount and having a buddy rotate the engine as I'm sliding the cover backwards to clear the rockers...
