V-Twin Expo 2017 review, part 7

HorsePower Inc: The Indianapolis based performance specialist designs and manufactures a wide variety of throttle bodies, intakes, air cleaners and more to complete EFI builds. Newly available from HPi is what is said to be the only aftermarket throttle body upgrade for the 2017 M8 Harley-Davidson.  A 60mm billet throttle body with fully CNC ported 1.900 intake port will be available later this spring;

Daytona Twin Tec: Allen Alvarez, owner of the Florida based fuel injection tuning specialist, says “ours is the only complete EFI system of its kind. Available in AlphaN, 100kpa and 300kpa speed density formats, the TCFI systems take serious tuners and engine builders to the next level - without compromise.” Allen was recently the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award by Easy Riders Magazine in recognition of his almost 40 years involvement with the motorcycle industry – a career that has seen him involved with a veritable “who’s who” of many of the best respected names in the motorcycle aftermarket;

Hawk Performance: The Ohio based subsidiary of one time Harley OER brake pad manufacturer Wellman Friction Products (part of Carlisle Brake & Friction), Hawk offer aftermarket sintered metallic and NAO organic (Non Asbestos Organic) disc brake pads that “offer world-class braking performance for sport and heavy motorcycles. This product line combines the quality and fitment of Original Equipment with unsurpassed stopping power and quiet braking performance”;

Brock’s Performance: New products from the Dayton, Ohio based performance specialist include these Slovenian made carbon fiber wheels by Rotobox and additions to their custom swingarm program. Well known for their Dyna Street-Pro and FXR Street-Pro swingarms, Brock Davidson’s new performance bagger swingarm has been designed for high-power, high-torque applications. It allows you to shed up to 50% of unsprung weight compared to the stock design it replaces;


RacePro: A familiar sight at American motorcycle rallies, the RacePro truck is a mobile showroom for many of the market’s best known brand names – not least NGK spark plugs, Yuasa batteries, Schumacher Electric (battery chargers and testers) and Mikuni Carburetor – indeed, Race Pro owner Rob Hassay says “we offer access to the largest inventory of Mikuni carb replacement and service parts in the world!”

K&P Engineering: Based at Littleton, Colorado, the proven technology of Dave Fisher’s unique, environmentally friendly high performance stainless steel micronic, cleanable and reusable oil filters are said to deliver superior filtration and high flow rate. Using magnetic pre-filtering, they are unaffected by water, heat or pressure, easily inspected and meet or exceed manufacturer’s specifications;

Rinehart Racing: Bought out two years ago by CEO Judd Hollifield when Gerald Rinehart heard the tempting call of retirement, recent new products from the Asheville, North Carolina based manufacturer include new slip-ons for 2017 Tourers, added to their popular ‘Xtreme’ true dual complete systems, Slimline and Classic duals, Touring 2-into-1s and Softail, Dyna, Sportster, Trike and Indian Motorcycle options;
