TMan TR555 Torqster Cam

Anyone using it yet?

I just ran my performance trends desk top dyno and setup a 103"" engine with stock heads and intake and ran the Woods TW5-6, TW555 and then the TR555Torqster........

IMO, The TW5-6 is one of the best bagger cams on the market.....it pulls from 1800rpm right up to 5000rpm which with stock heads, aftermarket pipes (Jackpot 2-1-2) and decent A/C gives a very tidy performance increase which works very well in baggers and in the rpm range where these bikes spend most of their life..........

I just ran the TR555 T cam and laid the graph over the TW5-6 and it is almost identical.

It has got me intreaged to the point that I will order one to try it out in my 2010 103"" FLHTK which is going to get the Champion Sidecar independant suspension trike kit added shortly.

Run an Andrews 37 in that program & see how it compares.

The http://threedomwheels.com.au/index.p...d=60&Itemid=87 on the bagger sounds great. The wood 5-6 is a great cam.

Why wouldn't you just get the Woods 5-6 ?

If they're identical, you could save yourself almost $40 by going with the TR555 ($358 vs $390 for TW5-6).

Hello WFO Larry, the 37 pulled approx 4 f/lb of torque less than both the TR555 and TW5-6 in this combination.

HP was almost identical in all three.............

The TW5-6 requires re shimming slightly stronger for the stock bee hive springs due to the super fast ramp rate of that cam and the TR555 has a longer over nose and faster ramp than the A37.

So if the ramp angle and nose was increased on the 37 it could possibly match the other two but...........having a custom cam made to suit would not produce enough of an increase to warrant the expense in my book.

I would like to see the TR555 against the TW5-6 in a real life test in an identical build.........and dont get me wrong I have raved about the TW5-6 since 2004.

A steeper ramped 37 cam is also known as an R&R 525, great cam as is the 37. As far as the various 555 cams they are nothing more than the performance shops way of getting a market share of what has proven to be an excellent cam in the form of an Andrews 54 grind.

BVBOB, from what I've read, the Andrews 54 cam is a great cam, but it likes a bit more than stock compression? Is that right?

If so, would the T-Man 555 Torqster cam be a better choice for stock 103" heads due to its earlier intake close at 37 I think?

What is your preferred "bolt-in" cam for the factory 103" baggers?

Thanks.

seems all these cams require more compression to be efficiant. also the 54 is pretty quiet in comparison. on a bagger whcih has lowers it is very eveident

I ended up going with SE255 cams for now with stock heads, adjustable P/Rods, Feulmoto:2.1.2 head pipe and SE Fatshotz (Supertrapp slip ons ) with 10 disc each side and open cap ends..........great sound and performance...............

Next year in winter I will go with DVS Heads ported to suit the TW5-6 cams and get DVR to open up my stock 50mm DBW Intake to 54mm............a mate of mine in Oz Hogbag has this setup in his bagger and it pulls like a train ...........

I am going to throw the TR555T cams into my son in laws crossbones 96" with cyclerama lifters and see what that does.............

Wouldn't the CR 575 provide better low end in the stock compression 96" in the Crossbones?

Hello Train, I believe the TW5`s require the stock springs to be shimmed as a minimum to handle these cams.........with any of the stock heads due to ramp rate and lift of .575" ...........which means plucking the heads and when I eventually do that I will ensure squish is correct as well as comp ratio and I have a set of high velocity raised floor intake port heads are ready to go in.........with valves ground to weigh the same, 1.94" intakes, radius on exhaust valve lip and 5 angle valve job............
