I am thinking of putting in the S&S 551 ez start cams, and body have any input on these?
I went with the 583's but I also installed a 106" kit ( 92 HP 110TQ) otherwise I would have used the 551's if I was staying with 96". Check out their website I believe that's a good choice for a 96" motor. Good luck with whatever you choose. :s
I have the 585G S&S easy start (107 kit, 10.5 comp -118hp , 123torq) love the power BUT not sure about the easy start part. I had to replace my starter clutch already, it seems that the compression releases do not always work, especially on short trips when motor is hot.
Huh, that is the first I've heard of any issues. I have a little over 2,000 miles on mine (10.1) and have had no trouble at all.
Yea, just my luck I guess, fig I put a HD starter in it when it first happen and go fig again the Spike starter I got was not built correctly and leaked oil all over my scoot!
Are you guys having any pinging from the 10 to 1 compression. Do you run 90 octane fuel.
Nope, but the corrected compression is lower than 10:1 and the bike has been dyno tuned.
My brother and i run S & S Easy Start 583 cams in our '08 Softails.-stock motors,but with A/C mods,Thundermaxes,one with Slip-ons and one with " 2into 1" V&H system.
We've run these for 2 years and have had no issues whatsoever.They work as advertised,even down to the ocassional "click" on engine shutoff.
As a Cam,they produce low to mid-range which is where we like it.
We also fitted adjustable pushrods at installation time, and these Cams also come with new (and better )bearings.
Check the S & S website.Oh,and also some posts by a member called 'Sage Counsel' a couple of years back.He went the engine modification route and Easy Starts; and he posted good results.
Well ordered the 551s from Phat Performance they'll be here Wednesday I also ordered new lifters. Can't wait!
