Motorcycle Storehouse

Sportster upgrades added to MCS inventory

MOTORCYCLE Storehouse continues to expand its product range, and among the latest additions of parts stocked are the 412 Cruise shocks for Sportsters from Progressive Suspension. The new shocks fit all ‘04-‘14 Sportster models and are offered in black with a choice of chrome or black springs. 
Despite having a ride height of 11.5in, the Progressive Suspension 412 Cruise shocks for Sportsters offer the same travel as the stock 12.5in shocks

Once installed on a Sportster the 12.5in static length shocks give a ride height of 11.5in, while still providing the full stroke of 12.5in springs. This movement is achieved through the use of special flat-wire progressive springs in combination with gas charged dampers. The shocks also feature five stages of pre-load adjustment. 

As a Lowbrow stockist, Motorcycle Storehouse now has the company’s Filtro-Max remote oil filter mount available. Cast from aluminum and offered in a choice of polished or black electroplated, the mount features a ribbed design and accepts all standard style screw-on oil filters. The ribbing is said to help with oil cooling, and Lowbrow also has an extra mount available that allows the Filtro-Max to be bolted to the front motor mounts of Big Twin models.

The S&S Cycle 482 camshafts now stocked at Motorcycle Storehouse have a profile designed to provide the maximum benefit when used on Sportster 883 engines that have had 1200 big bore conversions done on them. The new cams are for use with stock components and all that is needed to fit them is minor cam lobe clearancing to clear the crankcase.
S&S Cycle has designed its 482 camshafts specifically for 883 Sportsters that have been converted to 1200

The cams, which fit all ‘00-‘14 XL 883 models and will fit ‘91-‘99 XL models when a ‘00-‘14 style pinion gear is installed to match the pitch on the second cam, are said to deliver an additional 5hp and of torque when compared to a stock 1200XL. 

To allow Sportster motors to breathe more easily, Motorcycle Storehouse has slip-on 2in drag pipe extensions. The slip-ons work with ’04 and onwards Sportsters and can be fitted without complete removal of the exhaust system needed. The extensions, which replace the stock mufflers, are supplied complete with removable baffles and fit the stock head pipes and exhaust hanger brackets on ‘04-‘13 XL1200 and ‘07-‘13 XL883 models.
