Default Cost to install SE $499 upgrade?

Finally having the tensioner problem fixed before they go. The HD, SE upgrade kit is $ 499. I have a 04 RK with 27k. What is a fair price to install the SE kit, no upgrades.

Like most that pass over this are still guessing what your upgrading, I'm guessing cam plate... am I right?

~$1400. But don't use the SE cam plate. Use a late model cam plate and Andrews conversion cams. That way you get an inner roller chain.

If you don't plan on getting a big bore or head work along with it, Andrews 21N or 26N performs nicely.

Fair price? You will get charged anywhere from 4 to 6 hours of labor. 4 hours is fair. 3 hours is even better.

Why not just replace with Harley O.E.M. parts and you'll get another 27k's...b.

This. I did this and couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. I bought a later model stock cam plate that someone replaced with a billet plate. Got it for cheap. Oil pressure went up. Reused the stock pushrods to save some dough. Went with the 21N's. Pulls hard in any gear. I'd do it again tomorrow if needed.
