Default Stage ? Cam

Hi Guy's,

Has anybody upgraded there cam's to get that shaky thunder sound from there engine and what cam's have you found to provide that sound with reasonable power gains.

I have always upgraded the cam in my Dodge / Chrysler collection and this will be the first time i will install them in to a motorcycle so all the help i can get would be gratefull.

Cheers

There is no cam available for a Victory that will make it sound like a huge-cammed muscle car or a Harley for that case. Even the most powerful Vics have a smooth idle.
If you hear a Vic that sounds like that it has problems!

Or it's a race bike....



My bike is pretty potent, but it doesn't lope at idle... just hunts a bit. Like Rylan said, just a cam change isn't going to give it to ya...
If you did cam it to sound like that you'd lose all your low end torque and drivability.

When I first bought my bike, the original owner had turned the idle down to about 600rpm and it sounded BETTER than a Harley. After I found out it was hard on the oil pump, I quickly brought the idle up to about 950rpm.

Thanx 4 your reply Vic Builder,

As lobe sepration is not performance based then are you aware of any aftermarket Victory Cam machinists / makers.

I know quiet abit about Cams and i am positive that New Cam + Hi Perf Oil pump + Tune will work OK if you could just point me in the right direction.

Thanx again for responding and everyone else, as without you guy's i would be a mushroom down under.

Cheers

IMO you will struggle to make a 4 valve per cylinder, overhead cam, hemi head motor sound like an old 2 valve push rod V8.
I have read of some with ness honker exhausts changing them after fitting cam mods as they were too loud.
As far as which cams I have read that Lloyds are really good.

I'm making horsepower in the 130s and my cams are .484 lift. Go figure...

Thanks Half Crazy,

I will give them a ring and see exactly what can or can not be done.
