Ive got a 2010 Fat Bob thats got 10K miles on a early SE stage 4 kit, & around 12K total

Im going to change the cam
Should I change the lifters at the same time as the cam?

Thanks

New cams get new tappets. And these oem style tappets need to go back into the hole they were removed from if being reused. They aren't made from the same stuff that race tappets are made from.

Hylift Johnson Direct Shot tappets But good luck finding any. They were in short supply all winter, and now we are into boating season, V8 stern drives is what their primary use is.

Only place I've seen any advertised is Ebay, and they are not showing any packaging, so prolly $5 Chicom junk.

If I had to have a set today, I would prolly go with S&S or Feuling.
