Cam Chain Adjuster Shoes

Q: I have a 2006 HD Ultra Classic 1450 CC. What year did they (HD) start putting in the hydraulic cam chain adjusters? I have 42,000 miles and I am concerned. Thank you – Robert

A: Robert, Harley upgraded to the hydraulic cam chain adjusters in 2007. At 42k, we would suggest having yours inspected. Thanks for your question.

    The upgraded cam support plate for the twin cam engines first came out in the 2006 Dynas, then with the rest of the big twins in 2007, same with the six speed

    I believe it was 2006 for the Dyna platform then all other platforms got them in 2007+. So your UC would not have hydraulic cam chain tensioners and should be inspected. Mine were almost gone at the same mileage pull the cam inspection cover and take a look.
