Cam install time

Decided today was a good day to work on the bike as it's 20°outside.

Was going well pretty well until I got to the lifter cuffs. One of the bolts broke off. Too much locktite, I'm guessing. It was just at the dealer for a set of lifters in October......

Which Woods cam is that? What tuner are you going to use. Interested in the results.

That should wake up your bike.

At least you have a little sticking up to grab. May not even need to weld a nut to it if you heat the area around it and turn whats left with vice grips.

Good decisions come from experience, and experience comes from bad decisions.

You should have enough to grab and remove the rest of that bolt. Lucky it didn’t snap flush. My S&S lifter cuffs came with replacement bolts. If you have the ability, check your crank runout and post up your results.

Do yourself a favor and make sure that you have the updated oil pump plate before you put it together.

I know this doesn't help you now but when I get a bolt that feels like there is a lot of locktight I go back and forth several times as I back it out. May not have worked on that bolt but I've had great success with it. I was also going to mention that you make sure you get the latest oil pumo back plate part# 62400206 if you haven't already lke Desertwndrr mentioned.

It's the Woods 222 and a Power Vision tuner. The guys at Fuel Moto loaded a map that they say will bring it to somewhere near 110-115 hp and 120 ft lbs of tq. Sounds pretty good to me.

I was able to get the bolt out fairly easily. A little bit of heat and some patience got the job done.
