I have used Bobby Wood's Knight Prowler Cams
and Carbs in many of my bikes with excellent results.
I asked Bobby what he could do for an Injected 95 ci bike.
I used the TW6HG cams and T-Man heads. . .
WOW, 104 ft lbs of torque and 99 HP with a stock throttle
body, not to mention 45mpg on a full dresser!
Bobby, You're the Best!

You recently modified my H-D 44mm CV carb through #1 Cyles
here in Pheonix. Roger Lockwood replaced my 42mm Mikuni with
it yesterday. Roger did some dyno runs which inidcated we picked
up about 3 lbs of torque to 110lbs compared to the Minuni. Horsepower
remained just slightly above 95. This 95 inch engine has your TW6H
cams along with Baisley street heads and Jim's roller rockers. I was
able to ride it for the first time last evening. What a Difference!!
I love it! The bike feels quicker and much smoother to me.
Thank you very much for your advice over the phone and your fine work.

I'm very happy
with my bike. So far 109 HP and 108 FTLB of Torque. Low end torque is fantastic,
it shoots right up at about 2100 rpm's. I know you said it should produce a bit

Thanks again for your help Bob!
I've used your 630 lift cams in my 107 Dyna and the TW56
in my Classic. Finally got it dialed in with the KNIGHT PROWLER
TW8G's. Was going to try the TW9FG's, but this bike runs so good
now I can't see going to bigger cams. Bike pulls hard at 2,000 and
just gets better up to Rev Limit. Was still pulling when hit the rev
limit at 6,500! The KNIGHT PROWLER TW-8G Cams, your Super King '505'

Subject: TW6G Happy bike
In Feb '02 I purchased your TW6G kit for my TC88 to 95 upgrade.
My compression is 9.25 to 1 with HD flathead 1550 pistons.
I chose your TW6G because of it's stock bolt in capability.
My Dyno run was outstanding for a low compression, EFI, nonradical upgrade.
HP 94.8 Torque 111.0
I believe your cam/gear set made it happen for my bike. It's great!
I just had my 1995 HD FXDWG 80 ci EVO dyno-tuned.
It turned a very respectable 91.9 hp and 91.6 #s of torque.
The combination of components that you gave me; the cam,
carb, and exhaust worked perfectly with the rest of my
The blueprinted 435 carb needed no further tuning, the rest,
just minor timing and ignition adjusting.
The bottom line is that Im very happy with the results.
I dubbed my bike the Twincam Muncher.
I ride with a couple
of guys on Deuces with minor modifications and all they see is
my tail light, way out in front.
The torque is phenomenal. I set the rev limiter at 6500 and have
to be watching the tach or I will hit the limit in first gear
I know it. I peg the speedo and it still wants more. Awesome!
Thanks for the good service Bob. Next trip to visit my relatives in

visit you in Cropwell.

Just wanted to say thanks a
million for the fantastic service, and equally
fantastic product. In the past 3 months our little 3-person dealership
installed no less than a dozen W-6H cams and every client has raved
about their new-found performance. We're easily eclipsing the 1hp/cu
(rr. wheel) benchmark with a simple cam/pipe.K&N filter combo which is
easy on the pocket book for those that don't or can't afford to buy new a
new carb, increased compression etc.
Mr. Bob Wood
Thanks for the help with HP. Head work by others (194 intake, Black Diamond
valves, thermal springs), 116 ci Twin Cam, roller rockers, 550 Andrews cam,
45 Mikuni, D&D pipes, Dynatek TC88-2 ignition, 6-speed Jim's with 24 tooth
compensating sprocket and approx 10:1 compression. As you can see from
my dyno sheets, HP was 102.5 and 129 torque, top speed 110... NOT GOOD!
I knew I had some problems not tunable. After TR Reiser's magic with the
same heads, flow numbers were substantially better than the previous head work.
Along with his raceback, the KNIGHT PROWLER TW9BG Cams and WOOD
PERFORMANCE High Flow Air Filter, I was able to produce 125.5 HP and 140 lbs
of torque with only 10.25:1 compression (on pump gas). My shift light is set
at 5000 and top speed is 140 (2002 Road King with bags and crash bars).
In 60 days we are doing a 8,000 mile ride. I'll keep you posted.

Subject: Dyno Run for S&S 120" with Wood W9F Cam and Springs
I spoke with you last fall about your cams, and
springs for my S&S 113" motor.
You recommended your W9F cam and springs, along with Hillside Cycle for my
headwork. I added Axtel's 4.125" cylinder kit, to my 113" motor to arrive
I had Scott Palmer at Hillside rework my heads, and install your W188 springs.
I had Harley Davidson of Lynchburg, VA install the big bore kit, your W9F cam,
and the Hillside heads. This motor also has a 48mm DaVinci modified "G"
and an RB Racing LSR 2-1 exhaust system, and a Daytona Twin-Tec
programmable ignition module. Because this motor is in a 1997 Road King,
and I am a big guy, I took your advice, and had HD of Lynchburg change my
primary gearing, to achieve a 3.31 final drive.
I have attached the dyno results based upon your recommendations.
As you can see, I am extremely pleased with the outcome. This bike now
shreds the rear tire in both 1st and 2nd gear roll-ons. 3rd and 4th gears are
monsters, and 5th accelerates like 3rd used to. Hopefully these results will
compliment your Evo section of your web site dyno runs. Scott Palmer told
me that you were working on a manifold for S&S big motors that would
accommodate your new King 505 carb. I have to believe that the 505 would
really make this motor come alive throughout the entire

Quick note to thank you for your help and your products.
I have a 1984 Softail with the Baisley Pro Street Package
with your W6H cam, Roller rockers etc. After riding the bike
about 5,000 miles I decided to have the bike Dyno'd. I took
it to Roger Lockwoods shop in Surprise. He ran it on the dyno,
79+HP, mid 80's torque and to be honest I was disappointed
with the numbers since talking to Baisley I had been told of mid
90's hp and 100+ Torque. I was running an SU carb, Roger
suggested we switch to your 41.5 carb. Numbers went to
89HP and 92+ torque with just the carb switch. Now that in
itself is quite impressive but what got me the most is the Bike
is like a totally different machine. It is smoother and so much
more responsive. Quieter and the riding position is much better.
I rode back from Rogers, it was over 100 degrees out on a busy
Friday afternoon and it was still the best 50 miles I had ridden.
Love it. I tip my hat to your products and to Rogers expertise
and help in getting it done.
I have installed your 43.5 Rebel Carb and I ran it with my SE211 Cams.
It ran great and pulled like crazy. I then installed the TW8S and I have not
had a chance to Dyno yet, but this thing GOES! I will send you the Dyno's
when I get them, but I am very happy with this engine without seeing any
dyno numbers. The seat of the pants dyno tells me I am in the 110+ range.
We will see in a couple of weeks when I can get the Dyno.
I have been SMOKING the Crane 290-2 camed RK with same heads as mine,
a twS5 softail with same heads, a Night Train with same heads and SE257...
Looks like there will be some more Knight Prowler cams goin in around here!!
Thanks again for the Good Stuff!

I recently installed a Wood Performance Rebel 435 Carb. on my '00 FXDWG.
I have tried all the rest of the carbs out there......but now I have finally
found the "best" Carb available for a Harley Davidson engine!....You did
an excellent job on my carb, and I thank you very much for the assistance
and service after the sale! This bike is an absolute bullet now!...It has 95 CI,
10.5:1 CR, Hardy Heads, TP rocker boxes and roller rockers, Jim's titanium
pushrods, Headquarters cams, Dyna ignition, and Rinehart Exhaust.....
I haven't put it on the dyno yet, but I know that I will be pleased when
I do!...No flat spots, no spitting, just flat out pull, and acceleration
from the REBEL 435!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for a great product! Jeff Thomas
It was nice to meet you in person in Sturgis. You do not
often see the( other guy's) hanging
around the dyno to see how there carb's/cams work????????????????
Here are a few pic's pic of my bike. I thought you may like to see it in
the striped form as it looks
more like the 112hp 118 tq screamer that it is when in this form rather than the full
that you saw it in while on the dyno in Sturgis.
I just got home from a 12000km trip with this thing and it ran great in all conditions and
missed a beat. I ran 70 to 90+mph all the time in everything from sea level to 10000+ ft
In the Dakota's it was 100deg + and your rebel carb did it all and it
ran almost the same milage as any
thing else on the trip. My wife's 88inch FXDL with tw6 cams and K1 needle also never
missed a beat
and can run with most 95 inch bikes .
In my travels I ran up against a head quarters 95inch and a Branch 95inch both high
motors and they did not come close!!!!!!!!! The guy with the branch set up has
contacted you and is
getting his wood's cams installed asap.
Good stuff and Good Guy!!!!!!!!!
Thank You again
I am sending you a picture of my bagger in action
, This winter I changed out my tw 8 cams
and 43.5 rebel carb for a set of tw400 cams and Sk 505 carb. I went from
112/118 to 120+/122+tq ,
I loved the old set up but wanted to try get more out of this 95 and am more
than pleased with
the results . This thing is a blast and runs like a raped ape !!!!!!!!!!!!! I
rode 1000mi one way to
do a dyno run in Calgary Alberta and turned around and rode back 1000mi @
the way . The fuel mileage is very good for this kind of power and the engine
is quite .
This is a bike I put big miles on and is NOT a bar hopper . Once again your
cams, springs, carb
are performing flawlessly and are a big part of the reason I can make all this
reliable power .
I would like to thank you for the good stuff once again . Your stuff just flat

After I spoke to you on the phone, I decided to install the TW-6 cam w/ gear
drives on my 2000 Fat Boy, TC88B. What a difference this made in
responsiveness and torque! My dyno numbers before the cam was 76.01hp /
After the cam install, my dyno numbers went to 85.81hp / 95.97torque. My bike has
stock heads, S.E. Air Filter, S.E. adjustable Ignition Module, K&N thunderslide,
Straighshot pipes with baffles, TW-6 cam w/ gear drives. My bike is really fun to
and my numbers on the dyno are pretty good, for not doing any head work or replacing
the carb! Thanks for your advice. I'm very satisfied with this modification.

I have a '92 FXR with a 80 cu in Evo. Last year, with about 28,000 miles
I took it in to have the lifters changed. I wanted to have the cam changed,
The mech. suggested a Woods #6 cam. I haven't heard much about Wood's cams,
but went along with it. It turned out to be a very good idea.
I have the following mods to the motor:
1. Cam W-6
2. Re-jetted CV carb.
3. Screamin' Eagle slip-on muff.'s
4. S-E Ignition mod.
5. S-E Air cleaner Kit w/K&N filter
Last month I put the bike on a Dyno. Just at 75 hp and 80 ft lb. It has a good,
flat torque curve and the hp comes on smooth and climbs to about 6,000 rpm.
I am very happy with your product and look forward to many miles of gettin' it on!
I put one of your 435 Rebel carbs on a 100 in. S&S and man it was
set just right, not even an ideal adjustment was made. It was right on
the money. This is the second carb I have gotten from you. I was so
impressed the first time on my old ride, that when I built this one I had
to have your carb on it, and hears why: It makes it not only run great
but still gets over 55 MPG, and the guys with there 113 in. are eating
their hearts out because they cant catch our bike and run out of gas
way before we need to fill up. Thats the best of both worlds.
Haven't dynoed it yet. Dont need to. She runs with the best of them
and my butt tells me she's faster then most, but speed may not be
everything if your on the side of the road out of gas. And you were
right on the money with your gas millage statment, and it looks great

80 ci EVO - KNIGHT PROWLER W-6 Cam
I am very pleased with the performance of my bike with your product.
The W-6 Cam, with a low restriction exhaust and high flow intake gives
good acceleration and quick throttle response. In a light bike, like
the power comes on strong and pulls up to 6000 rpm before you know it.
The bike has that good 'ol thumpy idle, kind of like a big block chevy.
In traffic the bike handles like stock, but grab the throttle and hang on!
I feel that your products are the best on the market. I have plans to change
exhaust and add a bigger carb. I can't say enough about your cam and
will update you after my next dyno run.

Bobby, You da man!
You may not remember me. I called you from the middle of Idaho on my way
from Frisco to Sturgis lasts year. My Special Construction softail with a
100" Zippers engine gassed by a Super G was stumbling in the altitude. And
I wasn't about to open the carb on the side of the road in the dust and
grime to swap jets. Particularly not every time the altitude changed a few
So, after a few words of telephonic southern comfort, we agreed that you'd
send me a new Rebel to Sturgis and all I had to do was get there. You
promised it'd be set-up, ready to bolt-on, and good to go - heavy on the go.
Sure enough. The boys from Fed Ex arrived as promised with a big ole box
that contained the loveliest carburator man has ever fashioned. And two
days later you arrived in town, completely unscheduled, just to see if all
was as it should be. You can't beat that for customer service.
And does this puppy run? 103.6 hp at 3800' at 93o. Yup, this puppy runs!
On the way home from Sturgis I ran altitudes from 11,158' through the
Eisenhower Tunnel (the highest vehicular tunnel on the planet) just outside
Denver all the way down to sea level at my home base. Temps ranged up to
108o. The Rebel never seemed to know it wasn't supposed to run throughout
that entire range without stumbling or sputtering. Smooth power at every
gear, every day, no matter where I was.
Now I'm a rolling advertisement for you, Bobby. Can't thank you enough.
I'll be back on the East Coast this August. I'm riding out to visit
relatives in Indiana, celebrate my wedding anniversary in Savannah, attend
the America's 911 Rally in PA-DC-NY, down to the Keys 'round about Labor
Day, and then ride the southern border into the setting sun 'till I get to
San Diego, turn right and home to Frisco. I'll check as I come rolling
through Panama City. If you're lights are on, I'll run up north to say
hello and thank you. You're easily worth adding a couple days to my trip
Stay well, Bobby. And ride safely.

A few months ago I faxed you my dyno sheets from a shop in Fremont
CA. The dyno sheets did not match other dyno readings I had and you said
they didn't look quit right and recommended that I go to Horsepower Express.
You also asked me to let you know how things went. I took your advice and
went to see Bruce at HP Express. Wow !!! what a difference. I will never
go to an HD dealership again. He did a great job explaining to me what I
needed to do to get the most out of my 1200 with the money I had and the
parts I had already put into the bike. I threw away the SE heads and got
Buell 101 HP Thunderstorm Heads with matching Buell pistons. I told him you
used a Hooker 2 into 1 on your dyno example and that you had to drill it
out...alot. He also did some drilling and also got the compression up to
10.3 to one. He did some combustion chamber work, port work, matched up the
intake manifold and the intake ports etc. Not only that but he was even
polite and took the time to explain everything to me. I am now breaking it
in and will take it back to have the final dyno tune and the final exhaust
tune up at the same time. Oh Yea...he found out that the VOS switch had
been broken, no wonder the HP rating was low. The hose nipple was broken
completly off and the mount was all bent up. Of course he replaced it. He
also told me that one of the rockers had been slightly damaged but I didn't
need to replace it. I was able to convince a friend of mine to take his new
Softail Heritage to him instead of an HD dealer. I am sure he will be much,
much better off. Thanks for the recommendation. At last I have someone I
can trust with my bike and can have total confidence recommending to
Glad I searched the Internet and found your site and your cams.
My 1985 HD Low Rider, 80 ci was dyno tested at 86 hp and 87 #s of torque.
I was looking for a cam like the W6H with low duration and high lift. I wanted
more torque and a power band from idle to 5500 like yours. I am not
It is a great all around cam for the street and suits my means how I ride.
I had a SE 57 and it kicked in at 3,000 rpm, yea great, I was doing 70 mph at
that point, and did nothing for me on the street. Great horse power on top, but
not where I wanted it, on the street. I can tell the difference down low and it
like a bitch. Notice no clatter on the lifters when giving gas know to, more
down low. A hint for others, if you want to match up your cam to a set of
try Cycle Shack, duels, with baffles. You gain more torque. I found even old
can learn, and found with drag pipes with no baffles, " I LOST MID RANGE HP AND
TORQUE WITH DRAG PIPES." Also, 2 into 1 headers are more for top end. BOB,
much and enjoyed chatting with you, over the phone, and would recommend this
cam to others if asked.

Bob, I had KT in Baytown build
a 98 for my 03 Fatboy. After speaking with you
I went with the TW6HG. KT set up the heads and like you said “It’s a Rocket!”
The gear drive is smooth, quiet and powerful. I couldn’t be happier Thanks! KT
did an excellent job of setting this thing up and it is a thrill to ride.
Texas back roads will never be the same!
Wow....I'm very impressed, your products work beautifully.
everything you promised and then some. My name is Romano Marinaro,
and I live in Frederick,Maryland.
After calling and talking with you about a month ago, and
my 2004 FLHTCSE with a stock 103" motor. I expressed my need for
more speed & power, and the items that I already had in mind to use
for my engine build, upon hearing my choices you made some great
recommendations as far as cams, gear drive set-up, and your Hi-Flow
Air Cleaners. Along with turning me on to Horsepower,Inc. for my larger
Throttle Body that I would be needing.
The build went as planned and the attached Dyno Sheet says
This bike is a definite stump puller and head turner, runs
and sounds great!
We started with a set of HD HTCC heads with your valve
installed, along with the new HD Screamin-Eagle Forged Hi-Compression
pistons designed for strokers to work with the HTCC heads. We also
added SE Roller Rocker arms with the Forged Rocker support plates.
The HD Hi-Tensile strength cylinder studs were also installed along
with your 400G cams, gear drive set-up, your hi-flow air filter mated
to a Horsepower,Inc. 51mm Throttle body, and a set of Rinehart True
Dual Exhaust system. All this was tuned with an HD Race Tuner kit, but
took many hours to dial in. It seems the only way to write a map for
this set-up, was to fake the Race Tuner to believe it's a 120c.i. motor
instead of the actual 103c.i. motor that it really is. However it all
worked well, and the Dyno results totally impressed both myself and
the crew at Frederick Harley-Davidson in Frederick,Md. I hope you can
post my results on your website, and thanks again for all your help.

I have included two DYNO runs. One was with your TW6HG cams on
my 04 EFI Road Glide (different heads and
exhaust than the article)
and one with your TW400G
cams featured in the article
(almost the same setup as the article).
I felt that my 103 was not performing up to the engine's potential and
decided more go fast parts were it order. I just happened to read the
American Rider article and since my 04 Road Glide was very close to the
configuration of the 03 Road Glide in the article, I decided that your
TW400G cams were the way I wanted to go regardless of what the
Anyone that can read, could see your cams and that setup would
smoke the other cams the article seemed to favor.
My Road Glide is set up exactly as the article described except I used
Screaming Eagle's(SE) software instead of a Power Commander and
I did not send the heads to Bob Mackie for any
headwork. In fact,
the exact same heads were
used and they were "out-of-the-box".
There was no headwork performed on
the Harley Pro Twin Cam 103+
heads. I would imagine I saved myself at least
$1000 for unneeded
headwork! The proof is in the DYNO run as they say. In
the SE software allows a more precise tune than the Power
I would say the DYNO sheet shows the smooth lines versus the
Commander "dips and peaks". I would also like to
say that my mechanic
must know what he is doing. There
is no noise in the valve train of my
bike. There is some "gear noise", but
that is to be expected with gear
driven cams. May be the writer for American Rider was
not use to
riding performance bikes!
I hope you post this email in your Testimonials section so all can see
that American Rider Magazine has a lot to learn. My
bike kicks ass
and I could > not be happier with 115 in torque and
Keep up the great work Bob!

Subject: You are the best!
In today's business world, people are quick to complain and and rarely take
time to compliment for excellent quality and service. So I am taking a minute
out of my busy day to say "thank you" for your "over-the-top" customer relations,
and your work speaks for itself.
I had been referred to you by the folks here at Phoenix Choppers. I phoned you
about my disappointment in the carb that came equipped on a 120" Jim's Race Kit
motor currently in my '04 FLHT. The performance was already strong (125hp), however
I felt the carb lacked specific tuning. Upon receiving my carb, you phoned me at least
a couple of times, worked your "magic" on it, and turned it around in a matter of hours!
You told me I would be pleased. I was not pleased, I was thrilled! This carb rocks!
The motor is now smooth throughout the rpm range, idles smoothly all the way down
to 550 rpm, and most certainly would pull the front wheel in at least a few gears! In
addition, the upgrade to utilize my cruise control was very professionally done.
Thank you again for the outstanding service, I couldn't be happier.

Hello Bobby, sending you pictures of my ' 06 FLSTC Heritage Classic with your
modified K415 carb with the 325A air package. It is combined with the RB LSR 2-1
exhaust system. All I can say is with the two systems together there's plenty of
torque and horses and also I'm having an increase is gas mileage, from
41.2 to 47.6 mpg compared to the Mikuni. I'm really glad I made the decision to
do your carb modification and when I ride there's a smile on my face because I just
can't believe the power I have to what I had!! It was nice talking to you and thanks
for all your advice. Aloha from Hawaii..
From William Connor:
My 2005 Electra Glide has a 113" Screaming Eagle set up.
The first dyno run with the SE 51mm carb was at 114/114.
IT was good, but prior experience with Wood carbs said send it off.
Got the Super King back, stuck it on, and could immediately tell the
difference in the way it ran, along with a 3 mpg raise. Got back on the dyno,
and after a couple jet changes, ended up with 122 horse and 120 lbs or torque.
We had it up to 126, but the 122 run had the best air fuel ratio and curve.
If I can just get the SERT figured out (or get over to St. Louis to see Dave),
I know I can save a little fuel, and find a few more horses. Still happy as can be,
right now my 113 is out performing the handful of 120s that were locally installed.
Iam just writing to you to THANK YOU !!! for helping me in putting some SCREAM
into my 2007 Screaming Eagle CVO Ultra.As we no the 110 in motor as Harley has it
set up uses a SE- 255 cam in it ( what a pieace of JUNK that cam is ).So,I made a few
changes in my bike like using your TW-7H cams that is NEW for the 2006 -2007.
I also used a SE 50mm Throttle Body and D&D Fat Cat 2 into 1 system with ghost pipe.
WOW WOW WOW what a difference your cam made. I went from a very Narrow power band
to a WIDE band of Torque with a killer Curve to it . Giving me the unleashed power of a 110 in
motor that Harley did not give me. Thank You for helping me in putting the BIG cubic inch
performance into my bike when Harley Did Not.Enclose is a Dyno sheet showing before
and after results.
I have had my H.D.dealer install your new TW-7H cams along with the twin cam performance heads
from Harley. I am using S.E. air intake and S.E. street legal mufflers with Harley's race tuner.
I am pleased to report that I now own a torque monster ! Even with the restrictive mufflers, my
bike dynoed almost 102 ft. lbs. torque and 90 h.p. at our altitude here in Reno,Nv. of 4500 ft. above sea level.
My 2007 FXSTC now performs well above my expectations !
Thank you Bob Wood and company !!!
First, THANKS for Great Cams!
I put your TW6H chain drive cams in and WOW!
I have a Big Boys Cycles “Street Port” in stock heads, milled .030 with Manley
Streetmaster valves, KB 9.25/1 95” pistons, and .030 Cometic headgaskets.
I’m running your K3 needle in a 44mm CV carb.
In 2000 – 3000RPM roll-on’s I left my friends 100+HP/100+ TQ S&S setup in the dust.
I haven’t had mine on a Dyno yet.
I also have an S&S 89” Evo.
Just bought #1615 (1.850 int.) Edelbrock 72cc heads for it.
I would like a .580 lift EVO version of the TW6H cam with 4 degree advanced timing?
Possible? How much?
You are the MAN, Your cams and gearing strategy which we have implementd
combined with Dan's heads make for an amazing combo.
By the way I cancelled the Thunderheader and took your advise on the
Supertrapp and I am glad that I did.
While I am still breaking it in just crack it in first gear and your lookin
at sky. Wow, Smooth as silk but should be brutal. Nothin in Hong Kong like
this. I expect that my motor builder Gary Lee of Kustom Culture will be
looking for some cams for his customers real soon.
Thanks & Best Regards
From: William Conner
First, the big carb you worked up for my 2005 FLHT (113 in.) is running like a champ.
After a jet change, and a little work on the dyno, the horse is up over 120, and the fuel mileage
has come up to 35, even if I ride it hard. So, well done.
Next, have you ever worked on any Buell carbs. I have the small one, the Blast, and it's a dog. I
know at 492 cc, I can't expect the world, but there has to be a little more out there. Ever done a work up on one?
Brian from Hong Kong here. Thanks for everything and all the time that
you spent with me on the phone during the build of my 97 inch Dyna,
Your 400 series designer cam, your ideas on primary gearing which I used
along with a set of Baisley heads, pistons and roller rockers made an incredible
difference in HP and torque. It just unbelievable. But not surprising this is my
3rd Wood/Bailsely modification over the past 5 years and each time I make
distance from the pack. (and the sirens)
What was so important about this build is that it was done with the help and
dedication of a great local shop in Hong Kong, Kustom Culture who in the past
did all their builds from the catalogs of the "usual suspects", Nothing wrong with
that for sure. especially when your 8,000 miles from the source. Now they see
to some extent it's who you know that can make you fast and they can share in
having the fastest V Twin in Asia to their credit. We'll be in touch soon with the
dyno run sheets..Stay ahead Bob.
Hello mr Wood! My name is Peder Eriksson and i live in stockholm Sweden.
By phonecall i got in contakt with you, and i told you about my engine which is
an 106 stroker engine.
I wanted to swap that camshaft that i already had install, so i wanted your advice
of a camshaft that whould turn my engine to torque monster, and you adviced me
the TW-6HG camshaft, you also told me that i "gona love it"
I reale like it, This is the best cam that i ever have had before ,i am astonish,
now it runs cool whithout any pinging, and it run so strong.
I will let you know about the dyno later because i have yet not don it, but i will in future.
I am concidering also to change the secondary ratio from stock to 2.33, by swap
the front pulley.
So thanks a lot mr Bob, you are the best, and in future i whould allways consult you.
Best regard from your friend in Sweden and take care.
Hi, just wanted to say you do have the best performance cams I have used.I put
together an 80" evo a few years back and to start i used a red shift cam it is in the
box in the garage now and has been for some time. After a lot of time and money
putting this together, the first time I rode the bike it was like nothing changed until I
ran it at about 6000 grand. I put in your w8 and it came to life, I currently have been
ruuning this bike at th AHDRA races in the et and sep classes it will run 12sec. with a
street tire and stock controls ( shift etc.)this is in a 95 fxsts.but now something more,
got the bug to go faster and am starting to build a supergas bike and need to run in the
mid to low 9.00 sec range and want to do it with one of your cams, am looking at a 106"
evo with around 13:1 - 14:1 , the w72 and w10f are what I have been considering, but
would like any advice you could give me to what would work best. Just wanted to say
thanks for any time and advice.
P.S. Have also installed 3-4 of your w6 cams in friends bikes and they all agree on
what a differnce it made over the cam they had (ev27).
This is my 2003 FLHR, I went all out for a 113 cu in.
motor with Latus Motors and Mike Stegmann as the
builder of the motor and trans. I installed your BW9FBG
cam and Super King 505 with cruise control you added.
Mike was able to get some really good numbers on the
Dyno, max power 135.13 and max torque 136.18.

I have used your products before on a previous bike
and great results, as I stated on this project I went
all out for a 113 cu in. I am able to go from a dead
stop and within 900 feet I am up to 90+ MPH in third
gear (no typo on third gear) and three more gears to
go. I am very impressed with the proformance of the
To Bob Wood
Thanks to your TW9B cam ,I now have all the power I can possibly use---I was told when I started the build that 125/125 was not a realistic goal---Thanks to your help,advice and camshaft, I have a springer that is capable of a wheelie-what an advertisement for a Harley Davidson !!!

I just rebuilt the engine on my Evo powered FX Springer. Based on a couple phone conversations we had, I put in a W6 cam. Damn, does this mother run now! I installed Wiseco 10.5:1 pistons, Screamin' Eagle Evo heads, and the W6 cam. I'll know more when I dyno it, but it feels like it
picked up at least 15 hp, and about 20 more Ibs of torque.
My 103" '07 Ultra also has TW6-6 cams, and it makes huge power.
Whenever people say your cams cost more than others, I always tell them,
"Yeah, and they're worth every dime!"
Thank you again, Mr. Wood, for a superior cam!
The build is a 02 Fatboy 103ci SE stroker kit, SE HTCC heads,
SE roller rockers, SE perfect fit push rods, 10.5:1 SE pistons, gear cam
drive and your amazing TW408G.
Thanks again for your great products and amazing knowledge you are willing to share.
off THANKYOU,THANKYOU,THANKYOU !MY REBEL435 is AWESOME!
My 95''TW-Cam has definitely been woke up.From the bottom-end to the
topend &everywhere in between.It is truly a amazing High
addition to my machine that Straight Up works! Add4-5 MPG Better
I used to get. So if your like all
of us out there and want your monies
worth for performance don't go anywhere else! BOB knows what works
Thank You again

I have been running your King Carb and one of your cams in my 96 dresser
for about five years now. I can’t even begin to count the number of
I have received on how well my bike runs. It runs like a raped ape, if
I put this setup in when I lived in NE Pa and have since (three and a
now)moved out to Prescott Az and with no changes I can still say I am
happy with the performance level.

"I've used several different cam manufacturers
over the years.
But I've never been as pleased with any of them as well as I am
the TW-6-6 cams from Bob Wood!!
I was looking for the best bang for the buck and torque!!
I got BOTH!!! I recommend Wood Knight Prowler Cams to ANYONE
and I will use them exclusively from now on!!"
Oak Grove, La.
I just had
my 2003 Road King engine upgraded to 95 cubic inches,
had the heads ported at Baisley's Machine shop here in Portland,
put your TW-6 gear drive cams in, and had my carb sent back to you
for tuning. I just had dyno runs done and it came back with 81.5 HP
and 103 Ft./Lb of torque! We did not push the compression as I want
a reliable bike, but I wanted the torque for passing. I could not be
with the bike and wanted to thank you for the work you did and let you
know how much improved my ride is.

Bob, I am very pleased
with the cam Choice, TW408-6 on my 2007 FXSTC 103
We installed 10.5-1 pistons, Screaming Eagle 110+
heads, roller rockers, it is bored .010
over to 104.7 cubic inch, with 4.35 gm/sec
injectors, 50 mm Screaming Eagle throttle body,
and a Tamaguchi diaphragm clutch. On the first Dyno run
we had a stage 1 SE aircleaner,
stock pipes with screamin eagle street performance
baffles with thunder monster baffles
installed. We pulled about 94 HP. The S and S dual
aircleaner added 4HP. to 98 HP.
The last part od the install was the exhaust. We
used D&D fatcat 2 into 1 with the
100CI+ baffles and gained 10 HP to 108, with Dyno
tuning picking up the last 2HP to
110 HP and about 115 ft/lbs of torque. The Torque
curve is awesome, coming on at
2600RPM with 100ft/lbs, peaking with 115 ft/lbs at
3750 RPM and holding 100ft/lbs to
about 6250RPM. The tuning was all done by Scott at
Cascade Harley in Bend, Oregon
at about 3500 ft elevation. The bike rides awesome.
The acceleration through each gear
comes on as hard as the last gear through all 6
speeds. We did change the front
sprocket to a 30t down from a 32T.
Thanks for the awesome camshaft and
I would just like to thank you for a great product.
I was looking
to get a little more out of my 07 Ultra for touring under a full load.
I put a Supertrapp 2 into 1 exhaust on and was going to get it
tuned. After talking to Scott Palmer at Hillside cycle in
Munnsville NY. they told me about your TW6-6 cams . and I decided
that was for me. They installed the 6-6 cam with a 4 deg. timing
gear, Off to Joes Cycle Repair in Mechanicville NY. for my dyno
tune, What a combination this is, well above what I expected.
All said and done 100+ Horsepower........ 114+ torque and still
96" and no head work. Talk about bang for your buck. My only
wish is I would of had this done 28,000 miles ago !!!
Thank You All
We got cams today. Very fast delivery!

Well where do I start, the smile
on my face pretty well says how happy I have been with all ".
your products over the past 6 years. Over this time we’ve become; friends,
and best of all we have had 100’s of miles riding in Sturgis where we met
back in 03.
I see quite a few people on this page that i know and have met since owning
your products like
Mitch Millar warming up his rear tire to light up his cigar. Recently had
Dan Lodon built
my 2nd 95
with your 408g cams and WOW what a set cams. I had the 400’s before and
with this new build
and the additional motor & head work the 408g’are giving me an unreal
sound, performance and mileage.
Other parts in the build are your springs which I will never be without in
any v-twin motor, plus your
pistons and HPInc’s throttle body. Bob in all seriousness the EPA should
an award or
recommendation for INCREASING the fuel mileage on Harleys and v-twin
engines!! These 408’g and the
new build give me about 20% better mileage and I’ll let you know what the
dyno numbers are from Rods.
I spoke with Rodney at Rods performance in Hanceville AL and he also agreed
with me that the 408g’s
in the right build have to be one of your best all around cams. In closing
like the one guy said above,
not only did your products meet my expectations ,
them! Bob your slogan should be
" performance is
remembered long after price is forgotten
Wanted to share the finaly dyno results with you
guys. The customer
is extremely happy with his setup. Feel free to post
this run on you
websites. Thank you for all the help and time you took with
