I wouldnt bother if you are on an 07-up bike. How many miles on your engine?

Im getting ready to install a new Feuling oil pump, cam plate and timken inner cam bearings. So while I'm in there I'll install Zippers new "RED LINE" chain cam tensioners; they are a new design and duel piston. "If" you need tensioners you may want to think about these.







Food for thought,

Nevadasun

Good News
There is nothing wrong with the stock tensioners on 07up big twins. If you run the HD SE "Hybrid" kit and use the rear silent morse chain new story there, they can get chewed up because of the rough finish on the outside of the chain.
Most of the cam suppliers have adopted the hydra chain with open arms and the gear drive stuff is reserved for the highest performance racing motors. Not my words but I agree. They came from a guy named Tom Reiser.
