may encounter clearance problems when re-installing the saddlebags. Check for a minimum of 5mm. clearance to prevent damage to the saddlebags. Measure clearance in the recessed area in the “backside” of the saddlebags where the shock sits. Check front, back and side clearance. THE BAGS MUST INSTALL WITHOUT UNDO FORCE. If they don’t, they are hitting the shock and/or shock boot. ****************** Inspect the clearance through the full range of motion of the swing arm ******************* n If more clearance is required, three suggested options are as follows: 1. Place washers between the mounting points where the saddlebags attach to the rails. This will move the bag slightly outward and away from the shock body. NOTE: On saddlebags utilizing DZUS FASTENERS (’85-’92), replace these with bolt/nut combination (as on ’93-’94 years). This will allow you to use washers to gain necessary clearance. 2. Remove or slide off the rubber boot that covers the shock shaft and attaches the body of the shock. The boot can be modified and reattached to the shaft (not the body) and secured with nylon ties and/or removed completely. This should gain you a minimum of 3mm of clearance. 3. Slot and/or space the saddlebag “rail/frame cage” mounting holes to allow the entire frame assembly to be moved out slightly from the shock body. You should use this modification only as a last resort n Lower motorcycle and check preload (shock spring stiffness). Adjustment may be necessary to suit personal preference in ride comfort. Read your Harley-Davidson owners manual for procedure. Test Ride.

Upon installation of your WEB-CAM camshaft, check the following. These operations are very important to engine
life, please follow instructions! If your cam is described as a bolt-in in the WEB-CAM catalog, you may skip 1-5
below. Check piston to valve clearance. Provide the necessary clearance by removing material from the piston Minimum .050″ intake, .080″ exhaust.1. Check valve to valve clearance. It may be necessary to remove material from the valves or sink valve seat height in head. 2. Check the valve spring retainer to valve guide clearance at maximum lift. Remove material from the top,of valve guides to provide a minimum of .030″ clearance. 3. Check for valve spring coil bind at maximum valve lift. Clearance at every coil should be at least .015″4. Be certain that cam and/or rocker arms rotate
freely in head or block. Remove material from head,block, or rocker arms where necessary.5. Engine and cam life depend on proper installation. New or reground followers should be used when installing WEB-CAM profiles. Apply the provided
assembly lube to cam lobe and follower surfaces

Remove and place the lower fairings in a safe place, to separtate them unhook the rivet at the bottom. The right side lower fairing will need to be trimmed for proper exhaust clearance. Remove the fairing knee panels. Two rubber grommets retain the panel after bolt removal, light force is required to pull panel off. Remove the tank cover. Four rubber grommets and two plastic hooks retain the panel after bolt removal, pull outward to remove from grommets then pull forward and up, light force is required. Remove mid fairing sides. Undo pushpin located on the fairing backside. Note: Blinker connectors must be disconnected before pulling the fairing too far. Remove the left and right muffl ers. Remove the stock header. Note: Be careful not to damage the radiator while removing the stock header and installing the new header leaving the fl ange nuts loose at this time. Install both collectors 7-40020 and 7-40022 holding them to the headers install the four springs 7-30002 from the header to collector spring tabs. Install collector 7-40014 by installing two springs 7-30002 from collector to collector spring tabs. Note: A small amount of WD-40 at the pipe joints will help to fi t them together. Install the megaphone on the header assembly using one of the original muffl er mounting bolts and nuts removed in step 6, mount the megaphone to the forward muffl er mount located at the footpeg. Tighten the header nuts and then remove the megaphone. At this point the right side lower fairing needs to be trimmed. A template is supplied (Page 4) to outline the clearance cut that is needed on the right side lower fairing, we recommend using a dremel tool or a die grinder. The template should give you the necessary clearance but some fi tments may vary. After making the cut lightly sand the edges being careful not to scratch the paint. Clean all fi ngerprints from the exhaust using contact cleaner (or other non fl ammable cleaner). Fingerprints will leave stains on the pipe once the motorcycle is started. Try a test fi t. If you feel more clearance is needed, mark the fairing and remove it, trim until there is at least a 1/4″ of clearance. Reinstall the megaphone and check that the O2 plug is tight. You are now ready to start your motorcycle. Check for exhaust leaks and oil leaks. Shut off the bike and re check the oil level
