In 2000, HD changed the pitch of the pinion gear that drives the oil pump. Cams are the same, so if you buy used cams (or the wrong new ones) you'll have to have the pinion gear swapped out. That's what's pressed on. I think it's more trouble than it's worth so just get the right gcams to start with.

Great post Turbo. Did you put stockers back in or did you upgrade?

I removed the SE .551" cams and installed a set of Zippers Red Shift cams (see signature). They take your quiet stock cams, then grind off the lobes and then weld on new lobes .... Sounds kinda screwy, but if your stock cams were quiet, the new cams will be too.

Great info! Just would like to add a tip. I used a tool (looks a like a screw driver with a magnet on the end) to hold the lifters up while installing the new cams.

Hello all I'm about to install Andrews N3's into my '05 1200 custom and was wondering why you would put the bike into 5th gear only reason why I'm asking is i haven't read it in the manual or the instructions that came with the cams i know the manual is more about rebuilding the engine but i would think the instructions would say something about that any way if someone could let me know i would appreciate it thank you in advanced.

I posted to put it in 5th gear so it would be easy to rotate the engine by moving the bike back and forth ... remember, you want the lifters on the cylinder you are working on in there full down position when installing the rocker box on that cylinder.
