W&W expands product line
W&W Cycles continues to introduce parts for Harley-Davidsons that are based on classic pieces, and among the latest of these new options is a telescopic fork designed after the Ceriani front end that was standard equipment on XR and XRTT 750 factory and production race bikes.
The new T35 Dirt Track front end from W&W features cast aluminum triple trees with integrated 1in handlebar clamps and lower legs machined from billet aluminum. Total claimed weight is about 5kg less than a stock 35mm Narrow Glide fork. The width is 170mm (fork tube center to fork tube center) so it requires narrow aluminum hubs and corresponding brakes, and the handlebar mounting clamps are spaced 75mm (center to center). Like the original Ceriani pattern it features a friction disc steering damper with a large adjuster wheel.
The fork is intended for lighter weight bikes with a dry weight near 200kg. Caliper brackets and anchors need to be fabricated.
A second front end option now offered by W&W are the adjustable fork cartridges from Andreani. The cartridges replace the factory internals, feature a 20mm piston and provide a complete range of adjustment possibilities. Compression damping, rebound and spring pre-load can be tuned to the rider’s specific requirements. Each kit consists of two hydraulic cartridges complete with compression/rebound pistons, necessary shims, fork springs and top adjusting screws. Two versions are available for ’06-’13 Dyna models or ’02 onward Sportsters.
Fork modifications required for the installation of the Andreani cartridges are non-reversible.
The Six Days headlight by LSL is a classically styled headlamp that uses a side mount installation. Available in all black or black with a chrome bezel, the light features a modern prismatic reflector and a clear lens. The 5-3/4in light houses an H4, 12V, 60/55W bulb.
Available from W&W to work with the Six Days light are matching LSL sidemounts. The universal, two-piece clamp mounts are machined from billet aluminum and available for both 39mm and 41mm fork tubes, and in a choice of 67mm or 83mm lengths. The shorter versions feature extra holes for turn signal mounting.
Further LSL options available through W&W include the Clubman grips. The slim bodied rubber grips have a non-slip surface, and are supplied open ended for use with bar weights or turn signals, but end plugs to close them are provided. In black only, the grips are 125mm long and work with ’74 onward handlebar controls on 1in bars.
If the grips are left open, Oberon handlebar end mirrors can be used. The adjustable bar end mirrors fit handlebars with an internal diameter of 22mm. They are CNC machined from T6 billet aluminum, and the mirror can fold through 220 degrees, which tucks the mirror in past the bar end when space is tight.
The adjustable bar end mirror, in black or silver anodized finish, is more than just a mirror, as it also acts as a bar end weight to reduce handlebar vibrations.
Based on the design of the handlebar used on 1983 and ‘84 XR1000 models, the Malibu handlebars from Bates have a 1in diameter and an overall width of 81cm. The steel bars can be ordered in chrome or black powder coat and without dimples for use on H-D models up to ’81, or with dimples for bikes ’81 onward.
A quick and easy way to change the look of the stock gas cap is to use the Moon gas cap cover from W&W. It is glued onto the stock or similar gas cap with a few drops of silicone, or optionally with a few additional side-mounted set screws. The cast aluminum cover is a universal fit on all gas caps with 72.5mm or smaller outer diameter.
