Firebrand slip-ons for Street
FIREBRAND, the recently launched California based exhaust brand for Harley-Davidson applications, distributed by HardDrive, from Western Power Sports, is one of the first aftermarket manufacturers to offer a slip-on option for the Harley Street models.
Firebrand’s Loose Cannon slip-on mufflers can be used on both the Street 500 and 750. The black finished slip-on features a 4in body with a flash-suppressor end treatment and race-inspired high performance baffle with dual density muffler packing.

Vance & Hines equip Street
VANCE & Hines is among the first aftermarket manufacturers to introduce a range of products for the new Harley-Davidson Street models.
Among the parts Vance & Hines is producing for the Street 500 and 750 models is the Competition Series slip-on muffler. The matt black slip-on is finished in high temperature ceramic and then laser-etched with the Vance & Hines logo, and features a machined billet end cap finished in matt chrome.
Designed to fit the OEM head pipe, the stainless steel Competition Series slip-on has a fiberglass wrapped baffle and a removable insert to adjust the sound level to the rider's preference.
When using the stock head pipe riders of the Street can change the look of it by using the Vance & Hines Header Wrap kit. Each kit includes two laser-cut Vance & Hines wrap clamps, 25ft black header wrap tape and six locking stainless steel ties. The wrap is composite fiberglass that is treated to help lock in the heat and reduce the radiant heat by 50 percent.
In order to gain the maximum benefit of fitting the Competition Series slip-on, Vance & Hines recommends the use of one of its VO2 Naked air intakes too. The VO2 Naked is a direct bolt-on to the factory throttle body and features a high flow washable filter element. The intake, which is available in chrome, matt chrome or matt black, can be run raw without a cover or dressed with one of the company’s many optional VO2 Skullcap covers in a variety of styles and finishes. However, the original air cleaner cover cannot be used with VO2 Naked.

SBS pads for Street
SBS, the Scandinavian manufacturer of high-performance, quality brake pads, has three different compounds of brake pads available for the Harley-Davidson Street.
The company’s Sales Manager for North America, Johan Rauff Kristensen said about the new brake pads: “We are proud to supply riders on any bike with the ultimate stopping power and this is our main reason for changing our approach to the V-twin riders. SBS recognize that these big bikes need different brakes than a dirt bike or a fast track bike, so we decided to develop three different choices of brake pads. These are individually targeted at different bike types and ages – all V-twin – and different riding styles.
“The new Harley-Davidson Street 500 and 750 is a great example. It is originally equipped with organic ceramic brake pads, so we recommend replacing them with our ceramic H.HF compound. Should a rider want to upgrade the stopping power, then it’s as simple as replacing the OE pads with our H.CT Carbon Tec upgrade pads. For the bigger Harleys we offer a sinter metallic choice of front H.HS and rear H.LS pads. We at SBS are the only manufacturer offering aftermarket sinter metal pads with different friction levels front and rear – and therefore the only aftermarket brake pads offering the same brake balance as the factory fitted ones; something that’s essential on modern bikes with ABS systems.”
