    Hey all, I'm reaching out to all of you to see what you think about the 501 cams.

    I have a 2014 CCT with about 20k, Victory performance exhaust, Dynojet / autotuner, and a Victory performance air cleaner.

    My next upgrade is the cams. i don't want to go crazy so from my research, I hear about the 501 and 505 cams the most. I currently have an appointment to have the 501s installed this weekend and would appreciate any information/advice from people who have gone through the same upgrade. I've seen the charts posted here and am really looking forward to that performance improvement.

    Thanks in advance, Henry.

    The 501's are the best all-around cam for the XC, you won't be sorry!

    Depends on what you want. One is the street grind, while the other is the Touring cam. One will give you better low end, the other top end. But you need to pair them with the right exhaust as well. The system as a whole needs to be planned out to get the most out of the upgrades. Also, the 505 is for steel framed bikes. You will want the 501 or 504. 504 is the touring cam, but require the cam carriers to be modified. The 501's are drop in.

    I suppose it depends on what kind of riding you do and what you are looking to get out of them.

    I don't know how to put this another way......I WANT TO ACCELERATE FAST . I know it sounds sophomoric and I don't ride like a kid. I really just want it when I need it.

    I ride often being from AZ. Mostly to work where I just have to avoid the cagers but I really enjoy hitting the roads out here. I can't imagine living up North and having my moto sit for months.

    The 501s will work well if all you are looking for is acceleration. Again, look at the system as a whole. DO NOT OVERLOOK EXHAUST and intake. What you "gain" with cams can easily be lost with the wrong exhaust. And if you don't allow it to breath better, you won't gain anything, so a highflow filter is a must.

    Thanks tree.... when I was talking to the mechanic I think they were trying to sell me more stuff. I told them I had the tri-oval exhauset, the dynojet autotuner, and the victory performance intake filter. I was wondering about the LLoydz timing wheel. I figured, I could install it afterwards if I need to.

    I'd swap the Vic air filter for the Lloydz. Also, if adding the timing wheel, make sure you don't have any timing added in your tune already. The PCV adds timing above 2500 rpm, and if you add timing with the timing wheel, it will add to that timing. Make sense? lol. Basically, if you add 4 degrees of timing with the wheel, and 4 degrees of timing with the tuner, you will be at +4 below 2500, and +8 above 2500 rpm. That is too much timing and can cause bad things to happen.

    If you want acceleration then you definitely want both the timing wheel and Lloyd's filter to go with those cams.

    I didn't think about how the programmer would probably need to be reset if I add the timing wheel. Good call! Are you saying that I don't need both. From talking with others, one is mechanical where the programmers are adjusting the software. I'm thinking the programming should cover it but, I also thought the Pipes would add enough HP :)

    Read my signature, my Cross Country has a ton of power everywhere.

    I think my cams are now the 501's.

    If you have a Maximus you don't need the adjustable timing wheel. BUT, the PCV, again, can only adjust timing above 2500 rpm. To adjust timing below that ranfr, you need the adjustable timing wheel. If you have the timing wheel, you still need the programer for fuel adjustment but don't have to touch the timing settings in the tune.

    The 501's are a perfect match to the Tri-Ovals. You want to add the Lloydz filter, put that Vic filter in the garbage. With the PCV tuner you also want a timing gear set at +4. A Dyno tune will get it all working together. You will pull much harder all the way thru the PowerBand. Passing on 2 lanes is like warp-drive from 3-5k pulls very hard, they keep pulling nicely all the way past 6k unlike the stock cams that give up at 5k.
