I have recently purchased the Maximus and Tune from 801 and am waiting for the wideband sensors for the dynotune. One thing that puzzles me a bit is Ryan is saying I don't need to do cams in my Vegas. After his tune, I will not feel the need for them. I told him I have Lloydz VM-1 cams on my shelf ready to go in but he's saying I won't need them. I know the guy knows his stuff but, I'm questioning this...... Anybody have an opinion on this?
there's a difference between 'wanting cams' and 'needing cams'.
This Ryan dude maybe knows you real well, has ridden with you, and knows you short shift and just plod along happily like some riders do.
Never exceeding 4000rpm and certainly never going anywhere near the rev limiter.
Maybe he knows you just bar-hop and never get out of town much
In that case Ryan is possibly correct in his observation.
On the other hand, if you're a more spirited rider , who realizes the fact that these engines love to rev, and are somewhat hampered by restrictive. exhaust, intake, and soft cams so as to pass EPA tests.
If you like to wind it up a bit and ride your Victory the way God intended you to, then you need cams.
If you've ever ridden a bike with cams then you'll be craving them and salivating at the thought of getting them.
I bet Ryans never ridden a Victory that's been cammed and is breathing properly.
I didn't think I needed cams either...till I got 'em
