There aren't a whole lot of different came for the v-rod. Most are running the se stage 2 cams. I run them in my bike and I like them alot.

Gotta check your tuning device, some have reported problems tuning stage 2 cams with the PCommander.

i see where you went wrong , you asked the dealer first.... never, never,never and i mean never ask a dealership anything about a vrod. always ask here first and go into there with the right info... here is what you want part #30076-09 the screaming eagle stage II cam kit. and yes they will fit your vrod

If you're using the Road Rod for touring, I hear the Stage IIs won't give you gas mileage.. it's primarily a race cam.


To answer the 165 hp question, how as it obtained?

i'm still getting 150-160 miles pr tank of fuel with SE II cams. those cams "wake up" at 4,500-5,000 rpms up to the red line so if you are staying out of the cams "wake up" power band you will be fine for milage, As for 160+ HP thats a major stretch. I seen 145 hp with the rev limiter pushed beyond 9,000 but thats about it. Depending on what Dyno i'm on I am in the 128-135 hp range and my limiter is @ 9,000

I can say it's very streetable at 150HP, but that took a 1402 motor and SE II cams. If you are talking about a NA motor you'd be getting on the short side of reliable in that range (IMHO). You'll either be going to bigger pistons or an even longer stroke, and both have seen some reliability issues. Now if you turbo it with a mild engine upgrade (and def. NOT SE II cams!) you might see it and have it be reliable. Rod (Member RSC) is the turbo king around here. Lane (Member Lane) can tell you each and every one of a turbo'd bikes limits

I think you can be street able but for that much power reliability is gonna become a question. I think a good 1,300 or 1350 would be a good street able big bore size. I know some of you guys are running the 1402 with good results. I think you should shoot for a more reachable and reliable number. Lets say 140 thats very reachable and should be very reliable. I'm running right at this number with a stock 1250 bore with stage 2 cams, bigger 58mm TB, bigger injectors, se air filter, v&h comp 2-1. I have 12,000 miles on this setup and runs flawless. I run mid-length velocity stacks to keep the torque good thru the entire rpm range. I have to say that I ride alot 2 up on the bike and these mods absolutely are worth the install on NA bike. I can cruise this bike as low as 30 MPH in 5th gear. I get right at 175 miles to the tank. I'm very happy with the cams as they really woke this motor up. Besides with 165hp how much of that are you actually gonna be using 95% of the time.
