Motorcycle Storehouse Additions

OptiMate - Battery Chargers

Motorcycle Storehouse has added OptiMate chargers to its portfolio. The range includes the widest choice of features and options - from fully automatic charge and maintenance cycles, save, test and desulfate options to lithium chargers, deep cycle chargers and battery to battery chargers. 

They are available as dual, four-bank or even eight-bank individually operated chargers, for small to large batteries, and offer a wide range of accessories such as USB chargers, battery monitor cables, quick-connect cables and several dedicated battery testers.

Vance & Hines - Hi-Output Slip-On for H-D Pan America

Specifically designed for the 1250 Revolution Max engine, this V&H Adventure Hi-Output 450 slip-on is made from 304 stainless with a brushed finish. It produces a weight reduction of almost 6 lbs (2.72 kg) compared to the stock black fitment and +5 hp/+5 ft. lbs. torque. A "cutting edge" baffle design delivers a "bold rumble" while still meeting SAE J2825 dB levels.


Additional features include a stepped 4.5-inch diameter muffler, CNC-machined billet end cap, improved rider boot clearance, 50-State emissions compliance and factory bags and centerstand compatibility. It is designed to fit all '21-'22 H-D Pan America models.

MCS - Custom Throttle and Clutch Cables

Motorcycle Storehouse has recently added a dealer-friendly custom throttle and clutch cables to its private label (MCS) selection that allows stocking of modular inventory. MCS says that because many OEM mechanical control cables are identical - they just have different standard lengths - it is able to provide four basic model years to give coverage of the most widely required fitments. 

The four models cover '91-'22 throttle for Big Twin and XL; '06-'22 clutch for non-Touring Big Twins; '08-'16 and '21-'22 clutch for Touring and '86-'22 clutch for XL and XR Sportster. All are available in a range of custom lengths. So, when fitting one of these models with a custom handlebar (higher, lower, wider etc.) or even when running the stock bar, all the dealer needs to do is measure the current control cable to select a correct length replacement for the specific application. 

They are available in a full 'black-out finish', with a black vinyl cable and black fittings, or a 'chrome finish', with a braided stainless steel outer cable, with a clear protective coating and chrome plated fittings.

MCS - 20 Liter Boxed Oil

This newly added 20 liter Bag-In-Box is an environmentally friendlier alternative for the classic plastic canisters, but contains "the same proven Motorcycle Storehouse oil blends." The 20 liter box comes with a 100% recyclable inner plastic bladder bag with pre-installed tap and protective outer box with carry handles. This Bag-In-Box system is said to save 89% on plastic. 

It is available in SAE50 (941767), 20W50 (941769), 20W50 full synthetic (941770), 80W90 transmission (941771), primary oil (941772) and transmission/primary for XL models (941773).

Sonic Tools - Individual and Sets

Sonic is a high-end tool supplier for many famous name OEMs, and MCS carries all the metric and US/SAE sizes and accessories that are commonly needed in any well-equipped motorcycle workshop. A complete 349-piece filled (128 kg total) tool chest is available, but MCS also offers separate tool sets with a SFS foam inlay to fit 26" tool trolleys. 

All tools are available in a wide variation of sets or individual components with hex, Phillips, torx security, female e-torx/star and 12-point flank tools in a variety of sizes. Sockets are available in regular and deep sizes, with Open/Box end wrenches, flare wrenches, hex key sets, ratchets, swivel joints, screwdrivers, torq wrenches and more.
