S&S - A Busy Year for the Masters of “Proven Performance”
With the company’s “Rumble At The Ranch” 60th anniversary race weekend an undoubted highlight of a busy year, it has been the company’s involvement with the all-conquering Indian Motorcycle AFT Race Team that has been the headline news.
However, that doesn’t mean S&S has overlooked the day job - the new product blitz that started early in 2017 has continued and looks like it is reaching a crescendo as the year draws to a close.
Here is a selection of recent news…
Iconic S&S ‘Teardrop’ Gets a Modern Makeover
With classic lines and a legacy that dates back to 1975, the S&S Cycle teardrop air cleaner has done time on the drag strip, the salt flats and countless other race disciplines “as well as highlighting some of the premier customs in our space,” says the Viola, Wisconsin based home of “Proven Performance.”
Just when everyone would figure that it would be hard to make it any better, they may well have just done so with a bona fide carbon fiber version now available with the high flow Stealth air cleaner line.
Made in vacuum-formed carbon fiber, then sprayed in a high-temp clear and sandwiched between satin finished billet aluminum rings that sit on top of the proven Stealth intake system, it is easy to install, CARB approved and available for all 1999-2019 H-D Big Twin models. Cover only kits are also available for all existing S&S Stealth systems.
Sidewinder 2 into 1 for Twin Cam Tourers
This new 50-State legal Sidewinder high flow 2-into-1 for 20016 and earlier Twin Cam Touring models is described as being “the next level in high performance bagger exhaust.
“Merging a full flow stainless header into a highly engineered collector and culminating in a 4.5” muffler, the new Sidewinder represents the perfect combination of style and power. It includes our removable dB reducer baffle, allowing riders to tune the system for sound and back pressure.”
It is available for ‘95-‘16 H-D touring models and is 50-state legal for most years; also available for the M-8 Touring platform.
Choice of Complete M-8 Cam Chest Kits
Always on top of performance and reliability, S&S Cycle recently launched complete cam chest kits designed specifically to update the M-8 engines with the latest in pump, plate and cam technology.
The company has put together sixteen unique kits designed to match pretty much any late model M-8 Big Twin, any performance demands and any riding style – “combining all of the best components into one perfectly matched package.”
Kits include cam, outer drive gears for gear drive kits, cam plate, tappets, tappet cuffs, high flow oil pump, Quickee pushrod kit and all bearings and gaskets needed for installation. “Each part is designed to work with everything around it and create optimum power and reliability for 2017-2019 M-8 powered Big Twins.
Each kit includes the new S&S oil pump featuring a +44% increase in flow and +58% increase in scavenge - paired either with a torque or Hp cam and black or chrome pushrod tubes – “these kits are comprised of parts designed to work perfectly together and make serious and reliable power”.
‘Grand National’ 2:2 for 2018+ Fat Bob
Inspired by its total domination in American Flat Track, S&S Cycle says it has taken performance exhausts to the next level.
Combining the two into two format with a hidden crossover, the new ‘Grand National’ system is “designed for pure, relentless performance. Clean bends, stainless header tubing and full shielding to create an exhaust that makes real power without the punishment of melted boots and uneven torque delivery that come with most other short tract systems.
“S&S also includes wide band O2 sensor ports as well as removable secondary baffles that allow for sound and back pressure tuning.” Available in chrome or black ceramic, the ‘Grand National’ 2:2 is now 50-State legal and CARB compliant.
