    FYI I just emailed Revolution performance and they’re still making the big bore kits… Yay!… does anyone know what’s a good cam to use with it… in a 14XC?

    The best cam is the Lloydz 504. They quit making it recently. Call Lloydz and complain about the lack of a good big bore cam. One or two more complaints and I feel he’ll make another batch! In the meantime the Lloydz 501 cam is a good alternative.

      Rylan, Is there a big difference between the Lloyds 501 (DR) cams and the S&S Stage 2 cams? Would the S&S Stage 2 that are in my Hard-Ball today work well with the 117″ kit or would they offer minimal return? The Hard-Ball has a Maximus tune (Noe Martinez), a Lloyds air filter as well as Tri Ovals. It runs great but that’s the bike I’m looking at having built as a 117″.

        No, the Vic cams won’t perform well in a big bore. They are just too small.

          Which cams do you suggest then since the Lloyds 504 are NLA?

            1) send an email to lloyd@lloydz.com and ask him to make another run of the preferred cam.

            2) The Lloydz 501 is the next cam in line that I would suggest.

    Didn’t Lloyd abandon his 116” big bore kit? If so, it only makes sense, in his mind, to also abandon his big bore cam.

    So glad Revolution entered and still makes their 117” big bore kit.

      As I type this Lloydz is still making big bore kits. If you read this next week, or next year, then 🤷‍♂️

      Have you started your 117″ big bore project yet? Just curious as I want to do the same to my Hard-Ball. Also, what are you doing with your clutch? From what I was taught, the Lloyds Variable Clutch is needed with a big bore. Does Lloyds even still offer his Variable Clutch for Victory?

        Yes, Lloydz is still selling that clutch (March 2024).

        My big bore project is going on next winter… just saying it’s still out there. The variable clutch llyods offers might be in stock now. They told me to hit them back up this week or next as they were out of stock currently.

    I tried to buy the Variable Clutch this week. They said no, you need to send in your clutch basket and primary cover. And that only Lloyd can assemble them. I said I only wanted to start collecting the parts now I know I’ll need when I’m ready to start the actual big bore build. Nope, no sale.

    Yea yea yea… so they have to gut out the inside of the primary and cut a groove in the basket that’s why they take the 2 (FYI my stake nuts are on back order right now). But it is a 2 week turnaround… so not that big of a deal. What’s the hold up?

    I’m ok with the two week turnaround. I just wanted to buy the variable clutch to have it available later. Later being when I’m ready to send in my clutch basket and primary cover. Next year, or whenever I’m ready, I don’t know if Lloyds will still be making their variable clutch. The clutch basket and the primary cover are the easy parts.

    My mistake. I should have just called Rylan. Someone who still does Victory full time.

      The variable clutch is a modification of your existing parts, not a standalone part in the traditional sense.

      If you want to have “one on the shelf” you’ll need to buy the core parts – basically the $200 hub and a spare primary cover. I keep cores here if you want to work with me, otherwise a two week turnaround through Lloydz would be considered quick.

        Rylan, do you have a machined out primary cover on the shelf I could purchase? Or am I better off sending you a primary cover I can pick up on places like eBay? It doesn’t matter to me if the primary cover is black or chrome because I’ll get it powder coated to match the other engine covers I already have powder coated. What matters is the primary cover doesn’t have any scratches or gouges as the powder coat is a cross between a smooth semi gloss finish and a smooth matte gloss finish. Meaning, no texture so any underlying scratches or road rash would show up through the powder coat.


        After the primary cover, I’ll be looking for an intact oem clutch for you to modify into a Lloyds variable clutch.

          Yes, I keep the covers here you can purchase.

    Speaking of variable clutch, I’ve been trying to get mine since January… how long is the wait typically?
