Check for number 2 on XL and # three on XB if you have the keyed and threaded cam.

Are your XB cams keyed and threaded or not?

Hey there,

Buell XB9 cams are the same as XB12 cams. They will work fine, but timing XB cams isn't as straight forward job as timing sportster cams. They are Screaming Eagle E .551 cams.

It can be done and has been done succesfully. Check out thread for XB cams: http://xlforum.net/forums/s...cams+sportster

Only one cam has timing marks for sportster and buell. Rest you have to figure out.
