Default 15-1 thru 15-4 cams

Anyone know what kind of cams these are? They look like a Sportster cams but I can't find information on them.

They are sold now, but think that they were/are the SE bolt-ins aka SE.497's

Yes, many of the SE bolt-ins are marked 15-1/2/3/4. But some are marked 1B/2B/3B/4B

Cool, I went ahead and bought them. Figuring that if nothing else they'd make great paperweights.

ASWRacing,
I read your article on Cam Drive Gear Swapping, I have an 01 model and they look to like they came from a 99 and older... yes? Also, looking at the pics, are they overheated based on the discolorization of cams 2 and 3? Thanks!

Yes, those are 91-99 cams and yes, someone spun their bushings in the right case half, and yes, it looks like some of the gears got really hot.

Your first challenge will be to get those cam bushings off. I've seen those things seize really badly. Assuming you can get them off, try to clean the journals by clamping the other end into a lathe. Use fine emery cloth working down to scotchbrite until they're shiny again. I've done it and got them to work again.

Hopefully the teeth on those aren't brittle and prone to breakage, but I have no way of knowing.

Yes, to put that set in a 2000-up you can swap the drive gear, either that or get a new pinion gear. Swapping the drive gear is definitely cheaper.

Do you really want to risk damaging your expensive engine so you can use a cheap set of cams? Those cams are just a disaster waiting to happen IMO.

Nope, they sure will make good paperweights though.

Yea, like i said. They would've either worked or made great paper weights. For $37 it was worth a shot, but not enough to trash my motor.

So i am reviving this thread. i got some 15-/15-4 buell cams and i have a 2002 sportster. i need to change the drive gear. in the instructions mentioned above it says on the gear there is a v or an o. I think the ones i have have a v on them. also how does someone know the gear i in the right place to begin with? they have been marked so i am worried the drive gear could be in the wrong place to begin with
