    Post Cyco Cam Tensioners

    Meant to post this when checking out options to update the Cam Tensioners on the 05 Dyna .. I went with the OEM Hydraulic Upgrade Kit which I still feel is the better option but what really decided was a Great Price for them , a little of half of what HD wants , otherwise might have tried this .. Anyway was just wondering if anyone has gone this route or know of anyone that has ..

    That is a great price...I had them put gear drive cams on my 04 GeezerGlide and have never had any problems...

    I've seen a lot of folks on other forums utilizing the cyco tensioners. You can buy the pads and a special tool to install really cheap. http://harleydavidsontensioner.com/. Those that have installed them indicate that they hold up much better than the stock units.

    I am a huge fan of zipper's performance hydraulic, dual piston tensioners and thought they made a version for the twin cam 88 motor......but I looked all over their site and didn't find anything....sorry Jay.

    I will STRONGLY encourage you to take a HARD look at your cam chain edges. Part of why the cam chain tensioner shoe problem was so hard to nail down for so long......actually had to do with the edges of the chain links being burred if they were stamped with a dull die. When I put a bunch of money into my 09 cam chest, I actually found a procedure for polishing the cam chain edges on a buffing wheel using jewler's rouge....and then of course THOROUGHLY washing the chain in a parts washer before reassembly. I bought new chains and did this. Those cam chain link edges were "Baby's ass smooth" when I put it back together. In any case....if you decide to reuse your old chains...it's good practice to ensure they go back in the same rotation orientation they came out with!

    Thanks for pointing this out Clutch , Going to do some " Bling " Upgrades on the Dyna .. Been playing " Cheap Charlie " Finding some Chrome Goodies (Actual HD Stuff not Chinese knock off's) for the Dyna which includes the Cam Cover , so when I do this will give it a close look and see .. With a little over 5,000 miles since did the Cams Upgrade be nice to add some peace of mind to take a little time and Give a Look .. So far very pleased with this Dyna for what I have in it .. Especially when One Bike I own is No longer Made and the other just will never have the confidence in it one should since it had to be rebuilt .. But the way the Dyna just feels wouldn't be scared to jump right on it and go to Timbuktu .. Almost 6,000 Miles on it now and spinning like a top .. The Andrews Cams gave it just enough extra torque for me to make it feel right and not underpowered ..
