S&S Cycle Camshafts
Chain Drive Camshafts
Experience has shown that the new chain drive with hydraulic chain tensioners works well for all but the most demanding high performance applications. That's why S&S now offers their most popular grinds for big twins in a chain drive version. The most obvious advantage to a chain drive cam set over our popular gear drive cams is the expense. When you replace the stock cams with an S&S chain drive cam set, all you are replacing are the cams. You re-use the stock cam drive components so you save money on parts. Saving money has always been a good idea, but never more so than it is today.
Many riders are leery of the stock chain cam drive in late model big twins. While it is true that the early version introduced in 1999 was often not well suited to high performance applications, the later version introduced in the 2006 Harley-Davidson® Dyna® model, and later incorporated in all big twins in the 2007 model year, was vastly improved.

Gear Drive Camshafts
Gear driven camshafts typically have a higher initial expense as in addition to the camshafts themselves gears and installation kits are required. As gear driven camshafts require almost perfect crank run out typically their installation also requires bottom end servicing. Gear driven camshafts also require greater valve timing accuracy due to the precision required for their use. With this said, if initial cost and valve train noise are not part of your decision process, gear driven camshafts do offer the highest level of reliability and are often utilized in higher displacement engines for this very reason.
