2019 CVO Road Glide. Been wanting to do a stage 2 and was looking at the new CR-480 MT Monster Torque cam. Does anyone have experience with this cam?

I spoke to Fuel Moto about that cam yesterday. I noticed in their latest cam comparison they tested the old version (not the MT). I was curious how the MT performed compared to the old version. They told me they have not had a chance to test it yet.

Not much help, but sounds like it may be difficult to get info on it. Fuel Moto is usually one of the first to give results on new cams.

Check with Durwood, he tunes a lot of builds with CR cams.

I think we need to see many others use this cam professionally to see the broader outcomes.
Keen to hear what GMR thinks.
There always hype around these products.

I'm supposed to try one in a trike this week. Will post results in the dyno room.

Agree. He tunes in-house at Cycle-Rama's facility. I'm sure it's a great cam but would like to see more of an unbiased result. I also wish they would show their dyno charts in SAE, the industry standard...

Wonderful folks over there at Cycle-Rama so no disrespect towards them at all.

I'm still trying to figure out how he tunes them in 1 1/2-2 hours.  :idunno: His god like attitude also irritates me.

He doesn't use TTS, so not as many tools available to him  :teeth:

We have a good assortment of bolt in cams we're going fit into one of our test bikes this month, the CR-480MT and CR/APE-485 are among them as well as as the new Andrews 485 and 465B grinds. We're just finishing up testing about a dozen cams in the SE 135 crate motor and stock engine bolt in cam testing will commence next

Excellent. It's not lost on me (and I'm sure many on this forum) how much time, effort and cost goes in to doing these comparisons.

I tested that cam, and a couple others, in my tricycle. Link
