not required. but based on my experience, if they're the OEM lifters, you will have issues on down the road with that high lift of a cam. I had to replace mine with in a couple thousand of installing tman 600 cams.

I am putting Fueling 574 cams in my glide this winter,never had any issues with the stock lifters in the 20,000 miles but i will be replacing with Fueling lifters at cam swap.With the aggressive ramps on most woods cams new lifters wood be a wise decision.

Replace lifters when you replace cams, your right there anyway.

Ya. I changed cams. Then about 5000 miles later did the lifters. Wish I'd done at the same time.

FWIW, that cam's intake closing number wants at/very near 10.4 cr to optimize it's potential and delivery, and your OE 103"(?) is sitting about 1 full point shy of that at 9.6 cr, but that said, we'd reccomend to change out those "Made in Mexico" lifters to an S&S lifter.:)

A polite way of saying that your stock motor with 777 is going to suck below 3000 rpm
