S&S 551G Gear Drive camshaft kit with new .551 inch lift cam is designed for engines with 96 to 106 CID and 9:1 to 10:1 compression this is a bolt-in cam set designed for stock or mildly modified touring bikes. Greatly improves low-end and midrange torque, strongest from idle - 4000 rpm.
Gear Drive cams improves valve timing accuracy by eliminating timing chain lash and there is no tensioner shoes to wear out or fail. Complete kit includes camshafts with inner gears, outer cam drive gear kit, and camshaft installation kit.
For '06 Harley-Davidson® Dyna® and 2007-'16 big twin models.
Can be used with stock valve springs.
Fuel injection tuning required.
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 may require clearancing
for S&S .625", .640", and .675" lift cams. S&S recommends that gear drive
cams be installed by a professional mechanic.
Due to the inheraent 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.
S&S can do a special order cam. Contact your S&S Customer Service
Representative for more information.
