Parts Unlimited and Drag Specialties Spring NVP Product Expo Part 2

Magnum Shielding: Upgrading handlebars is a change many motorcycle riders want to have done for a variety of reasons, including looks or comfort. Along with the handlebars, cables, brake lines and wiring also need to be replaced and that can create a whole host of problems for the dealer, installer and the customer. Upstate New York based brake line and control cable specialist Magnum Shielding has an excellent low-cost, budget-minded solution for that problem with its STAINLESS XR handlebar installation kits;


Cometic: Offering a full line of V-twin and Cruiser gaskets for models from 1936 through current day from stock to a fire breathing all-out race machine, Cometic can sell entire kits or single, individual gaskets off the shelf and also offers custom gaskets at shelf stock prices. EST "Extreme Sealing Technology" is at the heart of Cometic gaskets with materials such as Multi-Layer Steel (MLS) for head gaskets, Aluminum Foamet Material (AFM) for primary gaskets and stainless steel rocker box gaskets as the mainstay of the Cometic V-twin and Cruiser product line-up;


Feuling: The fully restored triple cylinder 'W3' by industry legend Jim Feuling will have pride of place in the hands of Hall of Famer Don Emde for the parade lap at Laguna Seca when MotoAmerica and Drag Specialties combine forces to make Bagger class road racing a reality with the inaugural 'King of the Baggers' on Saturday, July 11;;


Goodridge: Recent new products from the British brake line specialist include 12 mm mild steel, black plated adaptors that "have a true 12 mm banjo port connected to a 3/8 x 24 male connector - a perfect solution for many motorcycle models, including Harley FX models.

Legend Suspensions: Celebrating his 20th anniversary in the motorcycle suspension business, Jesse Jurren's Legend line POS programs have become a popular sight in custom shops and parts departments. From AXEO front end cartridge kits to Revo and Revo-A, Legend Air and Air-A and Revo ARC 13" and 14" remote and piggyback reservoir shocks, Legend has one of the widest ranges of Harley aftermarket suspension options available;


Hogtunes: Recent new products from the Canadian specialist include XL next level 2 ohm 5.25" speakers for 1998 - 2013 Harley-Davidson touring bikes.

Also available through Drag Specialities, Trask 'Assault' risers with clamp are made from 6061 aluminum with black Cerakote coating and carbon fiber cover plates that keep the wires hidden;


Lyndall Brakes: With 20 years "engineering high performance friction material" under its belt, and still well known for brake pads, the new Indian Scout FTR750 and FTR1200 Custom features Lyndall black crown cut rotors. "We are proud to be a part of something that has so much thought and care put into it. This bike features only the highest quality parts and design." CNC machined in 11.5% chromium heat-treated 410 martensitic stainless steel for exceptional wear and corrosion resistance and double-disc ground to precise flatness and parallel, their ultra-light weight reduces unsprung weight for improved acceleration, deceleration and transitioning; an ultra-narrow bandwidth makes for a decrease in surface area, meaning an increase in surface pressure for a fixed amount of clamping force. The lug drive floating design distributes the sheer load over a multitude of lugs for maximum stability and the gas slots eject the hot gasses that are created under friction, improving pad performance;


RWD: Russ Wernimont's black anodized aluminum RS-1 Coil Over Shock Bodies have nitrogen-filled piggyback reservoirs, 5/8 " stainless steel shaft, black Eibach springs and needle valve technology with position-sensitive valving that provides additional bottoming resistance for a superior ride and digressive valving on the rebound side for more control when the shocks are deep into their travel. Manufactured for RWD by performance suspension specialist Walker Evans Racing at Riverside, California;


Khrome Werks: New products from the Pine Island, Minnesota based manufacturer include 'Edge' design exhaust tips for its 4.5" mufflers that are adjustable to the angle of choice (for Twin Cam and M-8 Touring models) and the new Satin Khrome and Smoked Khrome 4.5" muffler premium finishes, available with 'Tracer' or 'Edge' tips;


Pro-One Performance Products: Still based in California, and newly branded for a newer generation, Pro-One is now under the ownership of Joe Yang, the man who made, and indeed still makes, many of the parts that Pro-One has been well known for. From triple trees, DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) and GTN (Gold Titanium Nitrite) coated front fork tubes to front suspension cartridge kits, pegs, mirrors, grips, covers and more, look for even more "Premium Quality Custom Motorcycle Accessories" from a brand that is now into its fourth decade;


ODI Grips: Though best known for its MX and off-road grips, the Riverside, California based specialist has much to offer to V-twin dealers - from VANS/Cult V-twin waffle sole design grips to V 2.0 EMIG V2 lock-on grips and throttle tubes. ODI Powersport Sales and Marketing Manager Johnny Jump told us: "We've had quite a bit of demand for a throttle tube to pair these with, making it easier to mount them as replacements for the OE throttle tube. Since we already make a billet throttle tube for Supercross and Motocross racers, it was a perfect fit to our V-twin collection. Therefore, we have just released two new ODI Fusion throttle tubes for H-D V-twin applications;"
