All complete Freedom Performance exhaust systems come with heat shields on the headers, offering an almost seamless fit to the muffler bodies. Headers feature, dependent on the application and configuration of the system, 3 to 5 diametrical steps to keep exhaust gas flow as high as possible; Freedom’s systems are available with a high-quality chrome plated finish or in ceramic black, described by Zodiac as still to date “the one and only ever-lasting black finish that won't chip, discolor or fade.”

‘Odd Concept’ parts and accessories line
Zodiac is now selling the craftsman made ‘Odd Concept’ line of parts and accessories, made in Sweden. ‘Odd Concept’ is a relatively young company that designs and produces stylish parts with the emphasis on quality and form and function.

The product line includes these steel powder-coated brackets that for left side FXR style ignition coils install between the cylinders on 1995 to 2003 XL Sportster models, and with coil and ignition relocation bracket for 2004 to present models.

Also shown here, this steel powder-coated speedometer relocation bracket relocates the stock speedometer to the left side of the bike on most 1995 to present Sportster models with the straight 5-light warning cluster. Sportster Forty-Eight models require the separate purchase of speedo back plate and speedo cushion. All other required hardware is included. Attaches to the front tank mounting bolt.

Fork brace for Forty Eights

Alternatively known as a ‘Tweak bar’, fork stabilizer or fork brace, but whatever they are called, they can drastically improve the torsional rigidity of the front fork, especially on bikes with a single disc front brake. Available for XL1200X Forty-Eights in chrome or black.
