A NOTE ABOUT GASKETS:  Depending on the condition of your cam cover gasket, you may/may not need to replace it during your install.  Since Lifters can be replaced from the bottom on Milwaukee Eight models, you do not have to replace the lifter block gaskets when adding lifters.  Add gaskets in the drop down menu.

Our M8 Zippers Red Shift Chain Drive Cam Chest includes Zippers Red Shift Cam, S&S Quickee Adjustable Pushrods. Build a bullet proof cam chest by adding other quality products listed below that fit your needs.

M8 Zippers Red Shift Cams:  Zipper’s have many designs for engines with headwork, increases in compression, displacement and other high performance modifications.  The cam selection is an important component of any performance engine model.  The provided cam matrix (see image) allows you to easily hone in on the best choices for your performance build whether you are looking for killer horsepower, monster torque or BOTH!  Select your cam choice in the drop down menu.  All Red Shift Cams are designed with sophisticated ramp profiles that provide long valve train life in an aggressive environment, produced on highly accurate grinders for a dynamic profile that is superior to those produced on mass production equipment.

S&S Quickee Adjustable Pushrods:  Cycle Solutions Inc utilizes these pushrods in every cam chest we build.  That’ s because they allow easy motor access if you should need to go back in down the road and they are made of chrome moly steel for superior strength. This kit consists of 4 quickee pushrods, 4 pushrod covers and required O’rings.  Installation is a snap. Screw the threaded adjuster into the pushrod until the threads disengage and the adjuster simply slides up into the pushrod body. That makes the pushrod assembly shorter, so installation and removal is a snap.  Once the pushrod is installed, pull the adjuster down and re-engage the threads to adjust the pushrod. Once the pushrod is adjusted, the locknut positively prevents the adjuster from moving. The ball ends of Quickee pushrods are drilled so that oil can flow through the pushrods to lubricate the top end. That’s it! It’s a Quickee.

Below are additional products that will take your Zippers Red Shift Chain Driven Cam Chest build to the next level.  All of these products are upgrades offered to our customers at our show truck and our shop so that they can build the best cam chest possible that delivers performance and durability, as well as, a guarantee to some bragging ri

Feuling HP+ Oiling System: This convenient kit includes the Feuling HP+ camplate, oil pump, lifters and gaskets. Oil is the Life Blood of your Engine!  FEULING® oiling system kits combine all the needed components to finish your TC® engines oiling system under 1 Part #, available in HP+®or RACE SERIES® kits. FEULING® oiling system kits increase oil pressure, oil volume, engine oil flow and return oil scavenging, eliminating wet sumping and oily air cleaners. Test results show 25-35 degree cooler engine temperatures, 15-30 degree cooler oil temperatures, 15-30 more pounds of oil pressure and quieter smoother engine operation. Results also show a substantial increase of oil pressure and 3 H.P. and 4 Ft. Lbs of T.Q to the rear wheel.

-Both HP+® and RACE SERIES® kits include FEULINGS® HIGH FLOW billet camplate made from 7075 aluminum which is 50% harder and stronger than the factory, SE® and other aftermarket camplates. FEULING® increases oil flow and volume by enlarging the oil pump reservoirs and critical oil passages including matching the oil port holes throughout the camplate to the port holes in the engine case which increases engine oil flow to the lifters, piston cooling jets, crankshaft and rod bearings.  -HP+® SERIES Kits include a billet 6061 aluminum high volume oil pump, FEULING® HIGH FLOW anodized camplate, HP+® Hydraulic roller lifters, gaskets and O-ring kit.

Feuling HP+ Lifters:  Performance full travel hydraulic roller lifters, Optimize oil flow to the top end – valves, Valve springs, rocker arms, rocker shafts & valve guides. Cooler oil and cylinder head temperatures and reduced wear extending life of top end valve gear. CNC machined and precision ground, Drop in replacement for stock lifters, Dyno developed and track tested. Made in the U.S.A.  These lifters have hardened rollers, not harden coated rollers like other lifters which can show wear with as little as 5000 miles.  Cycle Solutions Inc. uses these Feuling lifters in 90% of the cam chests we build because the stock lifters are already failing.

K&P Engineering Lifetime Oil Filter/Cooler:  Cycle Solutions Inc. is all about quality products that perform and here is another great example.  This oil filter is a washable, re-useable oil filter made from billet aluminum that flows oil faster than a traditional paper filter and has a larger cooling area to actually help cool your engine oil down. This filter is available in three different sizes to accommodate any ones budget. Cycle Solutions Inc. worked alongside K&P Engineering to create a larger oil filter for maximum cooling, filtration and performance.  If your budget allows we recommend the S44 XL or the S69 XXXL K&P Oil filter size. The S44 XL version has 20% more cooling surface area than the original S4 and has a total length of 3.57″. The S69 has 100% more oil cooling surface area and has a total length of 5 1/8″.  If your motorcycle has a crank position sensor where the oil filter goes then you will need to stick with the S44 or S4 Size filter.  The K&P Oil Filter is offered in finishes other than the ones listed here.  If you would like a different finish then call us! Harley’s run hot so why not take every opportunity to help cool them down?

Inner Cam Bearings:  Cam change kits include genuine Torrington® brand full-compliment (no inner cage) inner bearings – the best you can buy! These inner cam bearings are far superior to the stock ones.  Inner cam bearings can fail by letting needle bearings fall into the case and cause catastrophic damage to a motor. The installation of these bearings goes smoother if you have the specialized tools that allow professional, damage-free removal and installation.  They can be removed with out the tools with a little more effort.  If you can not borrow the tools from a buddy you can purchase the removal tool HERE and the installation tool HERE.

Feuling Cam Chain Drive Sprocket:  This is a machined steel, stock replacement roller chain drive sprocket.  The machine build quality in the tip of the pinion shaft is over machined making the stock roller chain sprocket sloppy.  We have seen up to a 7 degree variance in the rotation of the crankshaft which could advance or retard the crank timing.  The Feuling Cam Chain Drive Sprocket is machined from steel and has a tighter fit than the stock one and has no play or variance on the crankshaft.  You can watch our video by clicking here that better explains this product and why to replace the stock one.

S&S Tappet Cuffs Lifter Guides:
  • The factory tappet guides are constructed of plastic, which allows tappets to twist under heavy stress
  • These tappet cuffs capture the tappets without impacting vertical motion to keep them aligned, even in high-rpm situations
  • Billet aluminum construction with a hard anodized black coating
  • Easy upgrade when changing tappets or doing a cam change
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • NOTE: Due to variances between cam and tappet manufacturers, always check the tappet to tappet cuff clearance
