Drag Specialties NVP Part 2

James Gaskets: After a year-long analysis of the operational characteristics of Harley’s 2017 Tourer engine, the market leading Dayton, Nevada based V-Twin gaskets and seals specialist is set to launch an all-new M-8 program for the 2018 season;


TechnoReseach: The Royal Oak, Michigan based tuning specialist has added over 25 new features to its arsenal for its ‘Centurion’ branded diagnostic tool. For the 2018 license additions include new tire pressure monitoring system features, carburetor tuning, ECU cloning features for blank ECU replacements and oil/chassis fan enable and disable. It has also released a new product, Centurion-Audio HD, which is the only tool on the market geared specifically for audio purposes;


Battistini Custom Cycle: Orange, California based designer Rikki Battistini’s ‘Leading Axle’ fork legs take their inspiration from 1970s motocross. They feature an axle that is offset over 1 1/2” forward and around 1/2” lower, “to give a perfect trail when fitting a 23” front wheel to any touring bike.” Described as a “true bolt-on part,” ‘Leading Axle’ fork legs simply replace the stock lower legs without the need to remove the fairing, trees or change the frame geometry – “the ‘Leading Axle’ fork leg has the corrected trail built right into the leg.” Utilizing the stock brakes, fender and all fork internals, Rikki says they can be replaced in under two hours;


Ciro: There aren’t many businesses in the V-Twin market experiencing the kind of growth that Hudson, Wisconsin based Ciro is seeing. From ‘Fang’ branded LED lighting through to performance, comfort and styling accessories, the company was founded three years ago by Aero Rudd, the son of industry legend and one of the original founders of Drag Specialties, Tom Rudd. Aero says that “Ciro strives to manufacture the highest quality parts possible and stands behind everything we do. We are always pushing the envelope to find or create the latest technology and manufacturing processes. We are immersed in a culture of creative energy that manifests itself in the highest quality components in the industry”;


Brouhard Designs: New design series from the Grass Valley, California based manufacturer include ‘Bomber’ and ‘Spiro’ floorboards, foot control and covers programs;


Rick’s Motorsport Electrics: The Hampstead, New Hampshire based specialist manufacturer has come a long way in the past 35 plus years. Internationally recognized as a manufacturer and distributor of quality electrical motorsport parts and components, Drag Specialties offer their dealers access to new (not exchange or reconditioned) cost-effective direct replacement high performance Rick’s rectifiers/regulators that are built to exceed OEM specifications. Part of their market-leading ‘Hot Shot’ series, they feature MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor) technology, so they run cooler than OE, which equates to a longer lasting, more durable design. Rick’s is also offering a new line of H-D regulators that are made in the USA to OEM specs;


Belt Drives Limited (BDL): Recent news from the Anaheim, California based manufacturer includes its  new CC-140-BB Competitor clutch conversion for Sportsters. The 140 version of its “industry standard setting” Competitor clutch series was developed exclusively for stock ‘91 and later Sportster clutch baskets. BDL’s patented ball bearing lock-up clutch is said to significantly lighten pull at the lever while providing smooth, slip-free lock-up. Each unit incorporates a designated number of steel ball bearings set in a model-specific diaphragm assembly. Conversion is a straightforward install, replacing the factory pressure plate, springs and hub;


Trask Performance: Products currently available through Drag Specialties include Trask’s ‘Assault’ series parts and accessories, such as bar risers, air cleaners, 2-into-1 exhausts, plus FL chain conversion kits, a Hi-Flow fuel rail and harness, fuel regulator housings, slip-ons for Scout and Victory, Twin Cam billet clutch baskets and ‘V-Line’ designs such as brake levers, bag latches, brake pedal pads, chin spoilers, and passenger and rider floorboards for Harley and Indian applications;


Ken’s Factory: Now available through Drag Specialties, Kenji Nagai’s award-winning product line of ‘Neo Fusion’ designs includes custom floorboards, risers, triple trees, one-piece clamps, grips and pegs, intakes, exhausts, covers, bagger products and lighting;
