2022 Low Rider S Modified – Part 1

Low Rider S 2022 Stock 01

This 2022 Low Rider S hadn’t even reached it’s first service before coming into Rollies Workshop for performance, comfort & style upgrades.  The Lower Rider S is already a great bike but the owner knew there was room for improvement.

This is a top quality build from front to back, inside & out.   We documented the build so you can see what’s gone into this 2022 Low Rider S.  For more info on any of the parts shown below, simply click on the golden coloured Part No. under the image.

This article is Part 1.  We’ll start with the engine/performance modifications…

2022 Low Rider S Engine & Exhaust Upgrade

2022 Low Rider S Build Begins

The owner of this 2022 Low Rider S wanted a Torque focused camshaft for low range power to launch at the lights and easily overtake other vehicles on the road.  We went with the S&S 475C Chaindrive Camshaft.

He also wanted a build that would be low maintenance and provide trustworthy performance for a long time so we replaced the stock weak-points with quality performance parts… 

The flimsy stock tappet cuffs were replaced with the solid S&S Tappet Cuffs.  Precision Tappets were installed to ensure plenty of oil flow.  the plastic stock manifold was replaced with a 55mm Performance Manifold made of aluminum (Note: We had this coated in black to better suit the bike’s desired look).

We put in an S&S Oil Control Valve made of 6061 billet aluminum and high strength steel for it’s long lasting durability.  The standard oil control valve on the M8 can fatigue and break, causing chips to flow through the oil system causing significant damage.

Once the engine was setup on this side we added the TBR Comp-S 2-into-1 Exhaust which always provides great power gains over stock.  The Maximus EFI Tuner Key is ready and waiting but first we need to do a Chain Conversion.

2022 Low Rider S Chain Conversion

The next step in this build is the Chain Conversion… It needs a chain to handle the torque of that S&S 475C Camshaft upgrade.  Over time the Factory Belt will stretch and eventually break as they were not engineered for modified engines and aggressive riding.

A chain drive will give you more durability long term.  If you love revving up and dropping the clutch then this is the way to go.

Boosting the Braking Power in Balance with the Engine Modifications

When you’re modifying the engine for more Horsepower & Torque, you also need to balance the stopping power.  The stock braking system is not designed for a modified engine.  This 2022 Low Rider S now has GalferUSA Floating Wave Disc Rotors to ensure optimum brake pad-to-rotor contact.

2022 Low Rider S Front Brake Rotor by GalferUSA

The Galfer-patented Wave® rotor is made from a proprietary mix of virgin high carbon 420 stainless steel, laser cut (never stamped), double disc-parallel ground to assure perfect parallel flatness and heat treated to each specific application. 

These seamlessly replace the stock rotors, however we also used top quality ARP Bolts from Feuling for extra durability.
