Arlen Ness

Arlen Ness bags and brakes

ARLEN Ness continues to expand its range of Bagger parts, and the product line includes the company’s angled saddlebags, which feature an angled cut design to the base to offer the look of extended bags while providing cornering clearance. 

The injected molded ABS angled bags have a 5in stretch compared to stock, which allows them to completely cover the bike’s mufflers. While the bags have cut-outs for dual exhaust applications, block off plugs are available separately for custom applications with single exhaust or no exhaust exits.

The bags are sold singularly and require both left and right bag ordering.
It is not just bodywork that can be upgraded with parts from the Arlen Ness catalog, the company also has a range of brake upgrades including Big Brake floating rotor kits. The over-sized rotors are said to offer a minimum of 30 percent more stopping power than factory sized rotors. The kits, which utilize the factory brake caliper and brake hose, are offered with 15in rotors for Dyna, Softail and Sportster models with 19in or larger front wheels and with 14in offset rotors that are specifically designed for all Touring models ‘00-up with 17in and larger front wheels. Each kit includes an over-sized floating rotor and billet brake caliper adapter and necessary hardware.

Victory owners can also upgrade their bike’s brakes with the addition of 15in Big Brake rotor kits. Like the H-D specific versions the Victory Big Brake rotors offer more leverage and therefore more stopping power, while at the same time dissipating heat more effectively than the factory rotors. The design of the floating rotors in the kits, which include billet caliper adapter brackets and hardware, matches factory Cross Country/Cross Road factory wheels.
