583 cams are bolt-in cams for 2005-'16 engines. Cams that exceed the limits of the stock valve springs require the use of special high lift springs. Most S&S cams have higher lift than stock and are designed to take advantage of the extra flow of ported stock heads or S&S Super Stock® heads. Due to the high lift of these cams, S&S adjustable pushrods are recommended. Not all grinds are available in the chain drive version. To get the best performance from a performance cam installation, a high flow intake and exhaust system is also recommended.
Optimized for use in the Softail®/Dyna® lines, this cam makes horsepower and torque that you can feel all the way through the rpm range, making the most power right where you need it:1500–5000rpm.
Features and Benefits:
- Great way to increase performance at an affordable price
- Quick installation – reuse many stock components
2005-'06 can use stock valve springs while 1999-'04 will need special valve springs.
- Gearcover gasket
- Cam bearings
When using 1999-'06 chain drive cams for lifts over .510", S&S strongly
recommends that the stock chain drive be upgraded to the S&S gear drive
or to the H-D® #25284-08 or #25284-11 hybrid plate. This kit updates the
problematic spring loaded chain tensioners to reliable hydraulic tensioners
and also upgrades the oil pump.
551 cams are not recommended with compression ratio of 10:1 or higher.
S&S can do a special order cam. Contact your S&S Customer Service Representative
for more information.
