The 510G is designed as a bolt in cam for 88 to 95 inch engines with compression ratios below 9.7:1. Intended primarily for stock heads that have not been ported. Can be used with stock springs. Includes 510G gear drive camshaft set and inner gears, outer cam drive gear kit, and camshaft installation kit for 1999-2006 Harley-Davidson® big twin models (except 2006 HD® Dyna®).
Pinion shaft run-out must be checked before installing S&S® gear drive cams.
A hydraulic press and other professional tools are required to install S&S gear drive cams. Additionally, material must be removed from the inner surface of the stock
gearcover. The stock crankcase will require clearancing for S&S .625", .640", and .675" lift cams. S&S recommends that gear drive cams be installed by a professional
New cam bearings and a new gearcover gasket are required to complete cam installation. Gear drive cams for 1999-' 06 models require the use of ball bearing style cam
bearing rather than the stock roller bearing. Roller bearings have more internal clearance which can cause excessive gear lash and increased noise. The correct parts are
provided in S&S Camshaft Installation Kit, part #106-5896.
Due to the inherent characteristics of gear drives, you may experience more valve train noise with gear driven cams. Oversized and undersized gears are available to help
achieve correct gear lash. We have found that with 160 lb. of valve seat force, the S&S gear drive cams will perform well up to 6200 rpm. If higher rpm is anticipated,
valve springs that provide higher seat force should be used.
