New from Zodiac for 2016

5-speed transmission for 4-speed Big Twins

The S&S Cycle 5-in-4-speed case is designed for 4-speed Big Twin style frames with 1970 thru 1984 Shovelhead style drivelines and chain final drive. Zodiac can supply the case on its own, or complete and ready to install 5-speed transmissions with choice of Andrews, Jims or Zodiac gears and ship them complete with a bottle of the correct Spectro transmission oil. First gear has 3.24:1, second gear 2.21:1, third gear 1.60:1, fourth gear 1.23:1 and fifth gear 1.00:1 ratio. The transmission case is only compatible with chain final drive, not with the factory H-D primary belt drive (as used on 1980 thru 1983 FXSB Sturgis models) nor any 4-speed Softail.

AFR & Next Generation fuel injection control - including MY2016

This Dobeck Performance AFR and fuel injection controller provides real-time air/fuel ratio data-viewing and gives the rider control over the electronic fuel injection system while riding. This combination is said to make the AFR+ the most powerful, user-friendly tuning device on the market, combining an EFI controller with a wideband O2 sensor and AFR gauge to provide the rider instant fuel trimming ability and feedback about the vehicle's state of tune visible in air/fuel ratio values between 10 and 16; the information on the gauge is said to be all that is needed to get the best fuel mileage out of the bike. A built-in piggy-back EFI control system, which does not replace the stock ECU, the AFR+ instead monitors the signals to the injectors and makes fuel adjustments based on the mode settings. It can be programmed into an auto-tune or a fuel trimming operation mode - the auto-tune mode instantly makes adjustments to the fuel curve based on the wideband O2 sensor input to match the user's desired AFR value; the fuel trimming mode allows a user to make instant changes to the duration of time the fuel injectors are fired. A push button interface on the gauge allows for quick fine tuning; the 2 1/16" (52mm) diameter gauge allows multiple third party mounting systems to be used - the self-adjusting back lighting display delivers clear day/night visibility. Available for all fuel injected Big Twin, Sportster and Twin Cam models, including all 2016 models.
