How-To: Cam Chain Tensioner Shoe Replacement

Install cam chain replacement tensioner shoes with a little help from Twin Power

Maintain your cam chain tensioner shoes with some help from Twin Power. A new instructional video has been added to their website to show you how to replace the part.

“These tensioner shoes have been designed to replace only the worn-out parts rather than the complete assembly. This makes it easy to replace with tools that you have in a modestly equipped shop or even in your home garage,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “This video gives step-by-step instructions on how to replace the cam chain tensioner shoes using the Twin Power tension installation tool for the 99-06 models and without the tool on 2007 and later.”

The Replacement Tensioner Shoes are economical replacements for expensive O.E.M. parts. They offer reduced friction, longer life and are high-temperature resistant. These replacement shoes are made in the USA of a material superior to O.E.M., and are sold in pairs. An installation tool is required to change the tensioner shoes on 99-06 (except 2006 Dyna) models. Twin Power has introduced the tensioner installation tool in conjunction with the replacement tensioner shoes for easy installation.

It is recommended that factory shoes be checked every 10,000 miles.

The Twin Power Cam Chain Replacement Tensioner Shoes can be ordered through your local Tucker Rocky | Biker’s Choice dealer.
