The 509 Touring Cam is designed as a bolt-in, high torque cam for 1999-’06 models, except 2006 Dyna®. 180 psi cranking compression, no need for compression releases. For 88 CID engines with stock compression ratio. Idle-4500 rpm.

 

With the current popularity of baggers, it’s no surprise that the S&S 551 cams for Harley-Davidson® touring bikes have become a favorite with late model bagger riders. The only problem is that, due to the .550" lift, the 551 cams can’t be installed in early (1999-’04) Twin Cam 88® engines without also installing a set of high lift valve springs. That means that the heads would have to come off just to install a cam. That’s a lot of work and added expense!

 

Based on the success of the 551 cams, S&S has come up with new 509 bolt-in torque cams that work with stock valve springs in 1999-’04 engines. Like the S&S 551 cams, the new 509 cams are great for low and  midrange torque, but the 509 cam’s lower lift allows them to be bolted into stock 1999-’04 engines with stock valve springs. That saves a lot of time and money on the installation, which makes the S&S 509 a lot  more attractive to owners of older Twin Cam 88 powered bikes. Of course, the 509 cam also works great in 2005-’06 88" engines, except 2006 Dyna® models. Available in chain drive and gear drive versions.

Installed the 509's in my 2003 Electra Glide Classic. Main reason was to get away from cam tensioner issue. The difference in performance is amazing, doesn't even seem like the same bike. Gear drive whine is very minimal.

Review:
Installed the 509s about 1000 miles ago and after getting the tuneup dialed in, I am very pleased with the performance of these cams. The performance through the entire RPM is much improved over the stock set up. A lot more torque and revs much faster. Engine: Stock 88, Samson true duals, S&S 509s, Cobra Fi2000R 692-1600-50.

Istalled a 509 in my 03 Dyna that's a 95" with nicely done ported and polished heads with comp releases and .010 shaved off.What I like about the cams are that they always feel like they are in the power band.low rpm grunt is good.Pulls nice thru 4500 rpm.Vance and Hines Bigshots and carburated well.Fun to ride, power at low rpm's.
