Andrews 54 cams?

Anyone know where I can buy these at? They're not listed on the Andrews web site.

At this point they are almost ready to go to the larger dealers like drag, CC etc. Being a andrews dealer we order them direct. Have several sets that will be here first of next week. What year, and version chain or gear drive are you looking for??

We also have them available. Special designed for 96 and up with compression up to 10:1 (2200-5600rpm range)

It is my understanding that the Andrews part # 288154G, the 54G cam is out of production and only available until the current inventory runs out. At least that is what I was told by Andrews. That part number fits TC88 form 1999 2006, except 06 Dyna.

Why not the R&R 525 for a bagger?

I believe the RR525 is a better cam for a bagger. Some people just shy away from gear drive though so the next best option is the 54.

The 525 cam is a great cam but one the new bikes you have to run the R&R camplate set up .So you are increasing the cost. Not that it is not money well spent just some dont have the extra money. The 525 in the 98 kits has been making almost square numbers , the last with our 98 kit set at 9.8.1 and a fat cat pipe stock t/b made 109 tq and 110 hp. The customer told me that the dyno sheet he is sending is a SAE 5th gear pull. So that is the normal standard of a dyno run in 1:1 gear ratio and in standard format. Once I have it I can post it. The 54 cam runs very well with the 42 closing point a tad more compression is run and thus far it has been a solid cam to use. We have it in several 107 kits at this time waiting for snow to thaw so they can dyno the kits. We have also run the 525 in the 107 kits as well. Both are great cams. I dont think you could go wrong with either one.

How does the TW54 differ from the TW55? I have a 55 I was planning on installing in my 10.5 comp 95ci. BUT I didn't install it yet!

We have used the 55 with great luck in the 98 inch kits. Now the 95 being just a tad smaller does make the cam softer in the lower end. If the bike is a light bike and you ride it hard the 55 is a good cam, the 54 is going to bring the power in sooner. Overall I would have to look over older dyno sheets to see where the 55 is at and compare it to the 54 curve wise. We have seen great numbers from the 55 with 10.5 compression and ported heads and a good pipe. Now the 55 is not known for its stellar low end power in a 95 inch kit. Bump it to 98 it runs better, put it in a 103 or 107 and it runs great. We have done plenty of 107 kits with the 55 and they have been a great cam in light and heavy bikes. Again that is a much larger engine than a 95 though.

What are the specs on the 54's? How do the ramps compare to the 37?

Why ???

Are you saying I can not put the RR525 gear drive cams in my 06 FLHT without using their camplate. When I talked to the guys at R&R I told them my exact set-up and they made no mention of needing a camplate with the 525 cams or any of their cams.

You can use the stock cam plate, I have also investigated the retro early to late hydraulic tensioner chain set up with the Andrews cam and the HD parts. Looks like $760.00 will do it.
