If you’re familiar with a screwdriver and a wrench, Cam job will probably take you about four hours. That’s what it took us. As for the type, it depends on how you normally ride.

“Your bike’s Cam Carriers will need to be clearanced to fit this cam, the Rear Cam Carrier’s Exhaust Rocker will also need to be clearanced for cam lift clearance.”

The touring cams are not drop-in. Modification is needed to your cam carriers. Search YouTube and you’ll find two videos showing what needs to be done. You’ll need to find a machine shop that will do it or maybe Lloydz has a swap program but either way you’re looking at more money.

If you want to “slap that ass” every now and then the cams Half-Crazy suggested are what you are looking for.

As far as a fuel controller, since you already have the Lloydz timing wheel the PVC V is your most cost effective option. Used ones pop up here and on the Facebook pages.

Your last issue will be getting a tune. Southern Motorworx in FL is probably your closest option.

After cams and a tune my gas mileage went up and the power went way up.

BTW, if you decide to go with a Maximus tuner you should talk to @NOEMTZ. He is near Houston.

Correct; the 505's are a 'drop in' cam, whereas the 504s need the carriers clearanced.

When you put in the adjustable timing wheel, did you buy the reusable gasket? If so you do not need the "cam chain" gasket. As far as the valve cover gaskets, you can reuse the existing ones if you want - however they are not terribly expensive.

When I first installed the timing wheel, I used the OEM gasket. It was good for 4-5 changes to the timing wheel and I probably could have kept on using it. I did end up buying the reusable one tho...

the guy at loyds said something about the backbone and jacking up the engine. he also said i might need a less restrictive exhaust if i wanted the 504 cams.

@BBob maintains a site with service manuals and other helpful info. On the site you should grab both the service manual and there are a few cam change write-ups as well. Review those and then decide if it is something you want to do yourself.

From what I understand, the tri-ovals are one of the best exhausts, at least for the 501 and 504 cams.
