’Tis the season for dropping hints. For holiday gifts, that is. After spending the summer in the saddle of your Harley-Davidson motorcycle, now is the time to get going on all of the two-wheel projects that you put off during the riding season. Whether it’s an exhaust system, wheels, a set of shocks, or even a full engine rebuild, set aside some quality time with friends and family this season to work on your big twins. Starting here, of course.
The aesthetically pleasing Deuce Perforated Leather motorcycle jacket was designed to tackle cold weather conditions with its full sleeve quilted liner. Whether you ride a cruiser, sportbike, or touring motorcycle, the cowhide leather-crafted Fieldsheer Deuce jacket is perfect for riding in any season, leaving you looking good while doing so.
Nothing changes the look and feel of a Harley-Davidson more than a new set of wheels. Width and diameter can dramatically alter the handling of your motorcycle, which is why Roland Sands Design puts as much attention into the function of its products as it does the aesthetics. Choose from nine styles: Boss, Del Mar, Diesel, Domino, Hutch, Judge, Morris, Raid, or Slam.
Rinehart Racing makes a half-dozen exhaust options for Harley-Davidson Touring models, from complete systems to slip-on mufflers. The Xtreme True Duals incorporate stepped headers to minimize flow restriction and torque-boosting anti-reversion exhaust-port louvers. Create the look that you want for your machine with black or chrome headers, mufflers, and end caps.
Until recently, Harley-Davidson Sportsters were fitted with non-adjustable shocks that didn’t offer much control. Progressive Suspension’s made-in-America 490 Sport Series shocks are easy to install and provide both spring preload and rebound adjustments to help you dial in a smooth, comfortable ride for everything from boulevards to back roads.
The Vance & Hines Fuelpak is a simple, relatively inexpensive way to custom-tailor the mapping of the fuel-management system of any Delphi-equipped Harley-Davidson. A three-step installation process—connect, tune, ride—can be completed via a smartphone using your preference of more than 3000 available maps, no expensive dyno runs required.
Harley-Davidson’s Oil Level and Temperature Dipstick is tailor-made for a Christmas stocking. Boasting “capacitive” level-sensing technology, this octagonally shaped model has a lighted LCD readout for easy viewing in either Fahrenheit or Celsius with the push of a button—no muss, no fuss. Powered by a replaceable lithium coin-type battery.
