Trouble with SE585 cams

I just had my cams done at the stealership and here's what's going on:

at 4500 rpm she starts to shake up to 5000 it gets worse. I did the SE 585 cams, SE valve springs and lifters, all new. Used the SE pro street tuner.

Your feedback is welcomed. I know I am going to have the dealership solve this issue.

Hi Tony, welcome from Mass.

Right back to the dealer, you paid for a service to be perfomed. They should deliver your bike running correctly.

Did they do a full dyno tune, or just a download? Bad tune can cause symptoms like you describe. Id have that checked before tearing things apart first. Next thing would be to check and ensure that the cams are timed correctly and they dont have a tooth off plus put a micrometer on the crank to check runout.

Good luck.

What year bike ? If it's a Twin cam , dump the Street turner. You'll never get a great tune staying with in epa compliance.
