    I have a 2013 road glide ultra and talk to that guy in Alabama and he suggested I install a 222 cam along with the 49t clutch basket. Mention that I ride mostly two up and at times we pull a camper trailer. My friend had his compensator go bad on him on our return trip from Sturgis. 2011 street glide 103 with 30k on it. Think he has a stage 4 upgrade in it. When the HD shop rebuilt the motor said it had a lot of carbon build up.

    Hi Guys,

    Quick update... Bought the Andrews EV27 cam, and a .30 headgasket. I've got a base gasket leak, so figured I'd go ahead and tear her down and do it all at once.

    Going to give it a try and see, since she has the 70 tooth rear pulley I want to see if the extra RPM's will close the gap between when the power comes on vs the EV-13 with a 65 tooth pulley.

    Should be going in next week once everything arrives.

    Cheers,

    Zach

    Update:

    Finally got into the cam, had a lifter start going out last summer and swapped it out. Just got back from our big trip down to the florida keys last weekend, so figured i'd give an update with the new cam after a couple thousand mile trip. Still haven't tackled the base gaskets, as she runs like a top but just weeps a little. If and when she ever starts burning oil I'll open her up.

    EV-27 from Andrews. Had to rejet afterward, and went to an 88 sportster needle as the dynojet kit in my carb had worn out.

    Gas mileage went up after the cam change, and the bike wants to run 67+ in 5th instead of 62-65 with the stock cam. I think for towing, the EV-13 would be a better choice... but she does have a lot more grunt merging onto the highway if you spin up the RPM's than the stock cam.

    I'm towing an aspen classic camper, otherwise stock 1994 Road king.

    Cheers,

    Zach

    Yep! The EV13 is the better low end cam.
