Screamin' Eagle Hydraulic Cam Chain Tensioner kit

I'm planing on changing my cam tensioners this winter. I think I will go for the SE upgrade kit. Plan on changing the bearings since i'm going to be in there. What extra parts to I need to get the job done . 2006 FLSTI.

Just took off my cam cover today. No wear on both cam tensioners. I'll check them in a couple years. By the way I have about 25,000 miles.

What year bikes are you guys talking about, for reference?

Your bikes come stock with the spring loaded tensioners or hydraulic?

My bike is a FLSTI 2006. There with the springs .Here are a couple of pics. The inner one looks just as good. I also use syn. engine oil. Maybe it helped.

Since you're in there take a look at your lifters. Actually this was a few days ago so you're probably all put back together. Not sure if anyone else has had problems with lifters but I've been reading about the surface of the stock roller being weak and sending shards of metal through the engine. Think I'm changing over to S&S lifters and pushrods when I change cams. They seem to have good reliabilty.
