Product Description

S&S Cycle

S&S 509 Chain Drive Touring Cam Kit

The 509 Touring Cam is designed as a bolt-in, high torque cam. 180 psi cranking compression, no need for compression releases. For 88 CID engines with stock compression ratio. Idle-4500 rpm.

Can be used with stock valve springs.

It's no surprise that the S&S 551 cams for Harley-Davidson bikes have become a favorite with late model riders. The only problem is that, due to the .550" lift, the 551 cams can't be installed in 1999-2004 Twin Cam 88 engines without also installing a set of high lift valve springs. That means that the heads would have to come off just to install a cam. That's a lot of work and added expense!

Based on the success of the 551 cams, S&S has come up with 509 bolt-in torque cams that work with stock valve springs in 1999-2004 engines. Like the S&S 551 cams, the 509 cams are great for low and midrange torque, but the 509 cam's lower lift allows them to be bolted into stock 1999-2004 engines with stock valve springs. That saves a lot of time and money on the installation, which makes the S&S 509 a lot more attractive to owners of older Twin Cam 88 powered bikes. The 509 cam also works great 2005-2006 Twin Cam 88 engines.

Questions & Answers

  • Will the carb have to be re-jetted?

    2002 flstc....hydrallic cam chain tensioners...python exhaust...rest is stock with 129,000 miles

    By: bob f.

    It really depends on your bike's current state of tune. If it's running well right now, then you'll probably only need to adjust the needle's position. Since the 509 kits aren't a significant departure from stock lift, fuel adjustments are almost always within the realm of your carburetor's current configuration.

  • 2005 softail deluxe with a power commander, if I replace the cams, do I need to have it dyno'd again?

    By: tony

    If you've already had your bike properly tuned for the exhaust and/or air intake configuration you have now, you probably won't have to make a trip to the dyno again. With the 509 cams at least, it's not so much that you're adding a lot of air to the combustion chamber - something which would require a dyno tune, but rather - you're changing when the air arrives. Things like fuel delivery duration and such, at least with these Softail cams - needn't be changed to account for this.

  • Will these cams work with the screamin eagle cam plate?

    By: Earl B

    S&S chain drive cam kits are designed to work with any cam plate that fits the stock engine on the machine you select from our fit guide. So long as that's the case, you should have no problem fitting these cams in your machine.

  • Any other parts needed to install these in a stock 05 Electra glide ultra classic?

    By: Robert c

    Other than the appropriate tools, you needn't purchase any additional parts in order to fit this kit to your machine. Since the lift is less than .585", you don't even need to get a set of aftermarket valve springs.

  • I have 1999 FLHPEI and I bought the fueling camplate and oil pump for hydrulic tensioner upgrade! Will the S&S 509 chain drive cams fit with my existing outer cam drive gears and chain?

    By: Guest

    Provided the Fueling cam plate you have on your bike is of the OE chain style, you should have no problem using the S&S chain drive cams.
