Drag Specialties and Parts Unlimited NVP Dealer Expo Part 7

Revolution Performance: Known for big bore kits and CNC head packages, the specialist Plymouth, Wisconsin Millennium Technologies subsidiary now has M-8 H-Beam rods available. The package includes a balance, true, plug and weld crankshaft service. A custom M-8 crank pin is designed for better oiling capabilities and the kit includes bearings, new crank plugs and new pinion shaft race. "When adding big bore pistons, especially extremely big bore pistons like our Monster big bore kits, the increase in reciprocal mass (rods and pistons) dictates balancing the rotational mass, the crankshaft. The crank is completely disassembled and trued. The crank is then dynamically balanced on our ultra-precise Sunnen DCB750 dynamic balancing machines. A plug is then inserted and the welded crank in place, so the crank will remain balanced and true. A properly balanced crank will make more power with increased reliability;"

Cometic Gasket: "Sealing championship engines since 1989," performing under pressure is the mantra for the Concord, Ohio based manufacturer.

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 OEM tube. Since we already make a billet throttle tube for Supercross and Motocross racers, it was a perfect fit to our V-twin collection, so we now offer two ODI Fusion throttle tubes for H-D V-twin applications."
