S&S performance cams for M-8 engines
S&S is offering high performance bolt-in cams for 2017 Harley-Davidson Touring models with the Milwaukee Eight engine.
Their new 465 cam is available in chain or gear drive, and S&S states gains of 21hp and 21 ft-lb torque (coupled with S&S intake and exhaust). These cams are compatible with all stock components, but S&S says that for the cost of the labor to remove and reinstall stock pushrods, S&S recommends replacing them with a set of their new S&S ‘Quickee’ pushrods for M-8s.
A bolt-in install, the 465G gear drive version eliminates cam drive chains and tensioners; the kits include all required bearings, O-rings and hardware. Gear drive cams “providing improved valve timing accuracy,” according to the company.
The 465C chain drive cam is also compatible with all stock valve train components and also ships with a complete kit for bolt-in installation.
Updated for 2017 M-8 Touring applications, S&S ‘Quickee’ adjustable pushrods save time and money on cam changes because they can be installed and removed without disassembling the rocker boxes or coolant lines. The super strong chromoly specification reduces pushrod flex; the adjustable design means they are compatible with all cams and tappets. The ‘Quickee’ pushrod kit includes chrome pushrod covers, O-rings and cover keepers.
