Zodiac adds wheels, USD forks and more


‘Fat Daddy’ wheels with TÜV
These original Fat 50, also known as Fat Daddy wheels, are made in the USA by Ride Wright Wheels of California. Radial laced with straight 3/8” (9.5mm) diameter stainless steel spokes with custom nipples, they have billet aluminum custom hubs and steel rims.
“These top-quality DOT approved wheels now also have TÜV approval, for use on most Harley-Davidson models from 1984 to present in stock and wider than stock sizes, including ABS models.”
Available as plain stainless steel spokes with chrome hub and chrome rim, black stainless steel spokes with chrome hub and chrome rim or plain stainless steel spokes with black hub and black rim, all wheels (except in 21x2.15”) come sealed for use with tubeless tires.
The 4.25” wide rear wheels fit most applications by modifying the axle spacers and changing the rotor and pulley spacing. Other wider than stock rear wheels for use with custom wide swingarms and offset parts also available.
Front wheels for Softail models are single flange for use with single disc brake rotor; all other wheels are dual flange - front for use with dual disc brake rotors and rear for disc brake rotor and pulley.
All other colors, finishes, wheel sizes and designs are available on special order for just about any Harley model from 1984 to present.


Rocker clutch pedal kits
Zodiac has now added these rocker clutch pedal kits to their extensive line of parts and accessories for new and old Harleys. Kits include bracket with bushings installed, pedal, spring cover and all friction components. The clutch pull rod connects to the arm on the pivot shaft which provides an offset to use with an aluminum inner primary cover.
They can be installed on all ‘36-‘78 Big Twins and ’87-‘99 Softails with the appropriate clutch rod, rod end and bolt or bracket and cable kit (available separately).


Shinko ‘Reflectors’
Shinko has introduced the SR777R ‘Reflector’ – “the next evolution in motorcycle tire technology,” almost completely unnoticeable until light hits the reflective material on the sidewall when the sidewall of the ‘Reflector’ tire lights up.
With a newly redesigned, reinforced carcass, the SR777R is described as having higher load ratings and higher mileage. Heavier (Aramid) belting “provides ample load capacity while also giving more stability and longer life.”
Specifically designed for cruiser machines, it is available in a multitude of sizes to fit many V-twin and metric cruiser models. The tires are also available with white sidewall; features include H rated tubeless, four or six-ply rated and Aramid belted.
