Andrews 57H worth it in a Rushmore?
« on: January 14, 2018, 01:06:43 PM »
2014 Ultra with V&H Power Duals, SE aircleaner, Reinharts and PowerVision. Have a lifter noise at 25000 mile so going in and replace the lifters with some NOS b model lifters. I Might as well replace the cams and inner bearings with the full compliment version. Are 57s worth the labor? I have read mixed opinions. What do the learned on HTT think?

Definitely worth it. Might even consider a Comp 3102, less money and a great cam

Are they the best bolt in cam available? No.
Are they better than what is in there? Definitely.
Are they worth the effort if you have them, they are given to you, get them cheap, or are on a budget again definitely.

The 57s get some bad press.... maybe deserved IDK. I do know that as mentioned, without a tune don't bother. This chart was my 103 with AC, Power Duals/Twin Slash mufflers, powervision & a lot of autotune runs...

(Sorry, but you are not allowed to access the gallery)

 Later in life it pulled 109/119 with headwork, drop in 110, but still with the 57s. It's a wethead & think the compression helped a bit.

=edit=.... typo... 110 not 100  :doh:

Well that escalated quickly!  I'm trying to just leave this motor stock, but that CR 570 looks excellent.

Yes went from changing a noisy lifter to a "high end" cam swap. Oh well who want to be the richest man in the cemetery.

For just a bolt in, the 57 is better than stock but nothing to write home about. Give it a little head work and a little compression and it does ok.

If you look at Dyno runs, Durwood has posted comparisons of 103" with the 57 vs. the CR570. The 570 did a bit better with low end torque and the higher RPM  HP was about the same for both. So the CR570 is a better cam, but not by a huge difference.

If I was going to put cams in my Rushmore the CR570 would be my first choice, the 57 second choice.
I am an adult?? When did that happen, and how do I make it stop?!

Whats the opinion on V&H Powerduals? They came on the bike and I like the look.  Will they cost any real power? Some tuners don't like them.

The rushmore engines run very well in stock form . A good tune wakes them right up.. I feel that for the money invested in adding a cam to that engine its not the best money spent. Sure you gain the Hp side tq goes up a bit . But when you figure in the cost f parts and tune .. Not the best return for your money..    If you look at TQ as that is what you are feeling for the most part anyways.. A HO stock cam will make 105 on avg . So you can 5 + on tq  again avg numbers ..  :idunno:



I would suggest leave it alone tune it or save your money , add a 110 Drop on kit then the cam you want ... being that 108/120 is what I would call AVG numbers for a 110 kit .. Use the SE kit search the web for discounts etc ..  I understand that we all start with a budget . Those silly drop on kits really make the customers smile . Not had one customer complain after it was done. Many wanted ported heads etc on a 103 or 107 kit .   and I  over laid the dyno sheets, showed them cost of both kits   .. hard to go wrong with it.

This kit needed a heavier clutch spring was slipping a bit down low until the AIM locked up .  Not the best numbers not the worst a AVG kit over all based on all I have built

I went with Cycle Rama 575 cams for my bike. Not installed yet but I did see what they do in the Dyno section.
Just do it while you can.
