Adding Security to Your Ride has never been Easier

   With the rise in Saddlebag Thefts around the country, the crew at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) wants to give you a security option that will help you hold on to your belongings. Our search led us to Brukus Motorcycle Parts and their line of security products for Harley-Davidson Motorcycles. Wanting to have an option to removing the saddlebags and lugging them inside every night or having to have the spotter seat at a restaurant, the folks at Brukus set out to design a system that made sure your bags stayed put.

   Now anyone that owns anBrukus-saddlebag-secure H-D Touring Bike knows it is way too easy for someone to remove the saddlebags and be down the road in a very short time. Saddlebags Secure by Brukus was developed to put an end to this and let you rest easy when you park at a hotel overnight, when you go out to lunch or dinner, or whenever you leave your ride unattended. By removing the weakest link in the system (the twist pin) and replacing them with tamper resistant hardware, you now have a secure mount for your saddlebags. The only way to remove the saddlebags now is with the included Security Tool. Having a set on my personal bike, I don’t even think about them being stolen anymore. In addition, they qualify me for a discount on my insurance policy because they are considered an add on security device.

   The SaddlBrukus-logoebag Secure by Brukus is a phenomenal product to have on your bike, but there is one additional piece that can be added to your bike that creates even more of a safety net around your bike and its contents. The Ultimate Defender saddlebag lid lock. Just because someone can’t get your bags off doesn’t mean they won’t try to go through the bags anyway. That could be just as big of a disaster too because we tend to keep valuables in there as well as personal protection devices. The Brukus Ultimate Defender is an additional lock that installs on the saddlebag between the mount and the lid creating a wedge that does not allow the lid to be opened. When using the supplied security key, you can remove and install The Ultimate Defender with ease, giving you quick access while keeping others out.

   This Fall at Biketoberfest 2014 we were pleased to have the Factory Reps from Brukus joining us in our booth. They will answer any questions from curious customers, demonstrate the effectiveness of their products, and provide many K and G Cycles Customers with added security for their bikes. While on location they even film product demo films of their newest products like The Ultimate Defender. To highlight its effectiveness and what it means for you. Watch it here… Brukus Demo Video

   Let’s face it, theft is growing daily and the days of “Never touching someone else’s bike” are long gone.” Thieves are becoming bolder and will stop at nothing to get what they want. It’s time to do something about it and secure your belongings. Check out the entire line of Brukus Motorcycle Security products at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) and STOP THIEF!

See where you’ve been with Custom Mirrors

   It seems almost every place we ride there is a common requirement of at least one mirror on our motorcycle. This of course is geared towards making the experience safer by allowing us to see what is behind us. While most of us utilize a 2 mirror set up, there are many custom builds or modified bikes that use only 1 mirror. Whatever your application, there is a custom mirror available for you from K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com).

  Round and Oval mirrors techrome skull 34-0071nd to be the most common replacement style largely because it gives you the greatest viewing area and rarely distorts the images in the mirror. As the name suggests the actual reflective surface of this type unit is Round or Oval, but the housing and stem can be of varying designs. Depending on how much you want to customize your ride, there are many offerings that go well with a lot of the “themes” out there today. There are also many OEM versions of the Rounds and Ovals and we have a large selection of stock replacement units available too.

  Next in the line ublack mirrors 34-1838p is the Square or Rectangular mirror. As with the Round and Oval design, there were a variety of these boxy OEM units that came from Milwaukee too. There are is a wide range of replacement mirrors in this category too. Loaded with themed designs, there is sure to be one that works for your application.  Given the utility design of the Square/Rectangular mirror, many people choose to use one when they are fitting out a retro build or when only 1 mirror is used. Depending on the desired look, this style can be plain as a Vanilla Cookie, or as unique as a finger print.

  If you are lookiBlack Hills Billet Mirrorsng to take customization head on, you can order mirrors in a wide array of shapes and sizes. Whatever your fancy, Maltese Cross, Skull, Flames, Triangular, Axe Head, or even Spade mirrors, we can handle that for you. Though some of these seem almost like a novelty because the mirror surface is either so small or it has so many angles on it, actual image reflection would seem impossible. Staying in the custom arena, we include the functional mirror. This variety will include the lighted version and the gauge mirror. For those looking to increase their visual footprint, we offer LED mirrors. These will usually act as running lamps as well as turn signals to provide much more awareness for the other drivers. In addition to the LED lighted mirror, there is a mirror available that housed behind the reflective surface is a multi-function digital readout. This consists of a Speedometer, a Tachometer, an Odometer, and Trip Odometer. This mirror can prove to be very effective on custom builds and modifications when a bare bones look is desired.

  With a huge selection of mirrors out there, you want to make sure you take your time in deciding which mirror will work best for you. If you need a little help deciding, feel free to contact your friends at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com). We will be happy to help you realize your dream and supply you with the right accessories to make it happen.

The Ultimate Goal – Personalize the Sportster!

   Motorcycle owners know it is about adding chrome to our rides to give them our own personal touch. Sportster Owners are no different, and K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) know this. That is why we carry a wide range of Chrome accessories for H-D’s venerable XL models. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the “Bling” you are about to receive.

   As we begin our jo06 and up xl primary cover 43-0285urney to “Chromervana” we start with this Chrome Outer Primary Cover (Part # 43-0285). When it has come time to transform our bikes into the rolling work of art, there is no better place to start than removing the polished pieces and replace them with Chrome. The Outer Primary takes up a lot of real estate and deserves to be Chrome instead of the factory polished finish that will dull over time. Perma Brand, the maker of this cover, is widely known for outstanding detail and workmanship, as well as budget friendly prices. Straight forward installation makes this an easy weekend upgrade that will give your Sportster a whole new look. Fits 2006 and newer Harley-Davidson Sportster models.

   Continuing, we Chrome Cam cover 42-0933  move next to the opposite side of the bike to yet another big piece of polished nastiness. Part # 42-0933 is a Chrome Cam cover that merely bolts over the stock cover using the existing hardware. Since this is a cover, the modification is simplified because you don’t have to disassemble anything, you remove the bolts, slide the new cover over it, and reinstall the retainers. You see, improving the look of your Sportster does not have to be expensive or difficult, you just have to know what parts to choose.

   Lastly, I wanxl rear pulley and belt cover 27-0619  t to shift towards the rear of the bike and add some Chrome covers to the pulley and belt drive (Part # 27-0619). Again, one of the simplest, most cost effective way to customize your Sportster is to install Chrome covers. Probably one of the dullest areas on any bike is the rear section of the bike, i.e. the pulley and belt drive area. This no longer has to be the case when you install this Chrome kit that has everything you need to shine up the rear end. This project will require a little more time than the previously mention accessory installs due to the rear wheel needing to be removed, but what better way to spend a few hours with your kid or a buddy.

   K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) wants to be your source for all your motorcycle parts and accessories. Contact us today and see how we can help you transform that average looking Sportster into a two-wheeled Chrome sculpture whose exhibit is the open road.

Foot Free Shifting brought to you by Pingel

   Imagine you are out cruisin’ your favorite stretch of black top and shifting gears with the simple press of a button. Sounds too good to be true huh? For so many of us, the constant need to shift up or down when you just want to enjoy the roads can really become a drag.  Here at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) we understand your pain and are happily offer you an alternative no longer requiring the use of the clutch and foot shifter to select the desired gear while enjoying the road. Pingel Electric Easy Shifter simplifies the whole process of shifting gears with the push of a button allowing you to up-shift or downshift and providing you smooth transitions to the required gear. Some of the top rides are California’s Pacific Coast Highway, Deals Gap or The Dragon as it has been affectionately named (318 curves in 11 miles) The Blue Ridge Parkway and Spearfish Canyon Road out in the Black Hills. There is a ton of shifting and braking going on.

pingel electric shift    Now imagine how those rides would be without having to manually shift. If you have the Pingel Electric Speed Shift Kit installed – You can keep your feet up, your hands gripped firmly on the bars, and all you have to do to shift is push a button on your handlebar control. It’s easy, just like the name says. This unit puts so much more fun into your riding experience. You don’t lose the ability to shift manually, but you’ll never want to because you’ll be having too much fun! Just picture it: You pull up to a red light, the light turns green, you grab a handful of throttle and rocket through the gears faster than even the best racer can shift manually! While they are pulling the clutch and finding 2nd gear, you have left them in your dust. While out on that relaxing ride through the countryside, you know the one through the hills and curves, while everyone else is exercising their left hand the entire time you will be relaxing and enjoy the scenery thanks to your Electric Easy Shift Kit from Pingel. You may never want to shift manually again.

   We have had customers comment that they like clutching and shifting, that an automatic shifter seems somewhat lazy, or that it must just be for old folks. However, it isn’t about any of that. It is about adding another dimension to motorcycle riding, an altogether new form of fun to be had! Improve your everyday riding experience – install a Pingel Electric Easy Shift Kit on your motorcycle.

   Pingel Enterprise, Inc. owners, Wayne & Donna are motorcycle enthusiasts that not only design and manufacture the products, but use them as well. Here are a few words from Donna, “Riding my V-Rod with the Electric Speed Shift  is a blast. When I am at a stop sign and want to speed through the gears at full throttle, I can – just like that, no comparison to the manual shifting. And when I want to just ride nice and easy, I can do that too.  My husband rides a 2005 H-D Classic with an S&S 124” and Barnett Scorpion clutch along with his Electric Speed Shifter and he has just as much fun. (Well, he likes speeding through the gears just a little more than I do). We enjoy riding through the Black Hills and Southwestern Wisconsin. Both are more enjoyable with the Electric Speed Shift by Pingel.”

pingel shift control    These kits have been designed for full or partial throttle with clutchless up shifting with a single push of the button. Down shifting is achieved by a push of the downshift button. Keep in mind clutch use is required for starting and stopping purposes only. Suited for Sport Bikes, Drag Bikes, Customs, Cruisers, and Touring Bikes, these kits are the perfect match for male and female riders whose bikes require a considerable amount of hand strength to pull in the clutch lever (a situation found on many H-D models). OEM hand/foot shifting ability is retained even after installation.

   Pingel Electric Speed Shifter kits come with everything you need to decrease the physical demands placed on you during gear changes. You’ll find in every kit a dual button handlebar control, a shift cylinder with a beautiful chrome plated finish, shift cylinder support bracket and a state of the art control module which sends a quick and reliable signal from the button control to the shift cylinder without delay. Also included is the ignition kill module which momentarily interrupts the ignition coils, and detailed, step-by-step instructions with photos for easy installation.

   So you see, you can relax even more while out riding, thus allowing you to enjoy everything there is to see. Available at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) the Pingel Electric Speed Shifter is one accessory designed to increase rider enjoyment while decreasing physical involvement on your ride.

Off-season Upgrades – Gear Drive Cams

   When it comes to increasing performance, the best bang for the buck is installation of gear drive cams. So today we are going to cover why GDC’s (gear drive cams) should be considered not only for performance upgrades, but safety upgrades as well. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) goal is to educate you on GDC’s and what you can expect from them. So sit back, take some notes, and get ready to order up GDC’s for your bike.

   A stock Harley is fairS&S 551 Gear drive cam kit   ly respectable when it comes to performance numbers and seat of the pants feel. For those of you looking to harness more power from that motor, upgrading to GDC’s with a performance grind (a lobe grind designed to manipulate intake and exhaust timing) is the most economical choice in terms of parts and labor. I know many of you are saying, wouldn’t a big bore be the better choice? Yes and no. If you are looking for the best return on your $$$, GDC’s produce the largest gains in horsepower and torque with the least amount of labor associated with the installation. Aside from reducing the number of failure prone parts, GDC’s operate more efficiently. On a chain drive you have spring loaded tensioners that keep your chain from having slack, and these tensioners add friction to the cam drive itself. Two large plastic type feet press down on the chain from opposing directions, and this additional friction is rumored to rob your bike of 3-4 HP alone v/s GDC’s. Another big benefit of a gear drive cam combination is your timing stays accurate because there is no slop. Chain drive cams can vary as much as four degree’s in cam timing back and forth as the engine is running. This lack of accurate valve timing is also a performance issue on the chain setup. One final and notable difference is the wear factor. On a gear driven cam assembly there really isn’t a wear point like on a chain. The adjusters on the chain drive can and will eventually wear out. In the process, they have been known to break apart and travel into the motor and oil pump causing catastrophic damage.

   Overall, Gear Drive Cams are a great performance addition to any motorcycle. Factoring in they are also a reliability improvement, they are a win win upgrade. At K and G cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) we love performance enhancing products, especially from S&S, Andrews, Crane , and so on. We love them even more when they also provide a service to us. Removing the weakest part of the Twin Cam motor and replacing it with a tougher design with proven power increases is what it’s all about.

Tire Truths revealed by Dunlop

dunlop logoWe all know tires are one of the most important and overlooked areas of our motorcycles. During a recent conversation with a Dunlop Tire Company Rep, I asked if there was any helpful advice he could give me to pass on to the K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) customer. He was more than happy to share the companies beliefs and recommendations.

Tire selection: dunlop tireWhen selecting new Dunlop motorcycle tires, be sure they meet the requirements of your motorcycle and its expected usage. For the makes and models not covered by the Dunlop Motorcycle Tire Application Guide, contact Dunlop before tires are fitted. Installing radial tires to the wrong vehicle can cause instability and accidents. Certain motorcycles may be fitted only with radials so you will want to consult the motorcycle manufacturer before fitting radial replacements to ensure you are applying the correct specification and combination for your motorcycle.

Matching Front and Rear Tread Pattern: Remember, the correct matching of front and rear tires is important to obtain optimum performance and handling. Follow the Tire Selection Guidelines and mount only tires marked “front wheel” on the front position and only those marked “rear wheel” on the rear position. Mixing radials, or mixing radials with bias or belted-bias tires, may adversely affect handling and stability, and should only be done when specifically fitted and/or recommended by an OE vehicle manufacturer. It should also be noted that many factors other than incompatibility can affect the handling of a motorcycle, including the weight and height of the rider, mixing worn with unworn rubber and the fitment of luggage or fairings. Consult the motorcycle manufacturer before making modifications from stock.

Weight Limitations of the Cargo and Passengers:  Consider carefully the weight of the motorcycle when selecting new tires, whether it will carry passengers and the weight of any optional equipment. You also need to remember, the load-carrying capability of the tires can be reduced by underinflation, so it is possible to overload a tire even though it is the size specified by the motorcycle manufacturer. Maximum loads and the corresponding pressures are indicated on the sidewall of all Dunlop Street Tires. Before riding, the motorcyclist must determine the total weight of luggage, equipment and rider(s) to be added to the motorcycle. Make sure the  total combined weight of luggage, equipment and rider(s) must never exceed the vehicle load capacity found in the motorcycle owner’s manual. Dunlop does not warrant tires used on motorcycles fitted with trailers. Sidecars should not be fitted unless approved by the motorcycle manufacturer.

Maintaworn tirein Correct Pressure:  Checking Tire Pressure is the single most important maintenance function you can perform. You should follow the pressure recommendations shown on the Dunlop Motorcycle Tire Application Guide and contact Dunlop if your year and model are not shown on the current guide and the owner’s manual does not list pressure settings. For high-speed, fully loaded or dual-riding touring-motorcycle applications, inflate pressures to the maximum recommended by vehicle manufacturer for Dunlop fitment. Never exceed maximum load indicated on tire sidewall or vehicle capacity load found in owner’s manual, whichever is lower. Underinflated tires can result in imprecise cornering, higher running temperatures, irregular tread wear, fatigue cracking, overstressing and eventual failure of the tire carcass, or loss of control, which could cause accident, injury or death. Over inflation does not increase load-carrying capacity, but will result in a hard ride and accelerated tire wear in the center of the contact patch. Be sure to check tire pressure cold,  frequently with a good-quality gauge that holds a reading, and always before extended trips. Loss of pressure may occur due to worn-out or badly seated valve cores, so be sure to check valve cores, and tighten if necessary  for correct seating, or remove and replace them. Also make sure the tires have valve caps install that are in good condition. Repeated loss of inflation pressure may result from undetected tire damage so you want to visually inspect tires for punctures, cuts, abrasions, cracks, bulges, blisters or knots. If you notice stress cracks in the tread grooves this is one indicator of overload and/or underinflation. If you find evidence of tread-groove cracking, you should remove and replace the tire immediately. Damage caused by impacts, penetrations or continued underinflated/overloaded use is progressive and can result in sudden and complete tire failure and accident, injury or death. You should always seek expert inspection of the dismounted tire following curb, chuckhole or other impacts.  It is always a good to get into the habit of inspecting your tires frequently for damage and to always heed warning signs such as vibration, handling instability, rubbing or tire noise that occurs during operation of the motorcycle.

Minimum Tread Depth: Always remove tires from service before they reach the tread-wear indicator bars (1/32 of an inch tread pattern depth remaining). Worn/unworn tire combinations and worn tires used in wet conditions can result in deteriorated handling.

PurchaDunlop-Tire-Icon-05sing tires can be a very intimidating experience, but with a little knowledge, you can make it a little easier. Developing good pre-ride inspection habits can lead to trouble free adventures on the road. When the time comes for new tires, check out the great deals available from K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) on Dunlop tires and more.

Increasing Comfort and Protection in 1 Step

   When the time comes to accessorize your bike, why not make it a functional add-on. I bet you wish there was a way for you to stretch your legs on a long run? What if I told you there was a way you could achieve this and give yourself some low speed protection at the same time? At K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) we strive to bring you the parts you want at the best prices, and that includes Engine Guards and the accessories you want for them.

Comfort, Style, and ProEng guard 51-0878tection are 3 words that are usually not associated with each other, unless you are talking about engine guards. Many people also call them “Crash Bars” , but that sort of sets a bad tone, kinda like saying, “There’s nothing to worry about, I’ve got a crash bar.” Engine Guards available from K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) come in many different shapes and styles, and most are available in Chrome or Black. The main objective when installing an engine guard is to give protection to the engine and paint should the bike go over on its side.  Engine guards usually will keep the bike off the riders legs if the rider goes down with the bike, in most cases preventing more serious injury.

Digging deeper into Engine Guards, with the addition of highway pegs and mounts, they now are set up to offer us increased comfort, especially on longer rides. Allowing the rider to stretch out on longer rides provides greater comfort, less cramping, and a more relaxed feel,  yet still maintaining the same amount of protection. Highway peg mounts and pegs come in a large variety of designs that match many OEM and custom themes available, as well as mounts for tall, short, or average height riders with some being fully adjustable.

Deep sickness bar Now lets talk about the Engine Guard itself. There are several models available from, but let’s start with the classic oval. This is the guard that has been around since one was available. Most commonly seen on the smaller bikes, these have an unmistakable rounded oval shape that is a time proven design, with enough shoulder room to mount pegs if desired.  Next is the square of the group, literally, the top side of this offering is flat on top, with flat sides that fall back on the lower legs to attach to the frame. With its flat side, it has a large range of placement for highway pegs   This seems to be a favorite among those with intermediate size bikes. Mustache Bars are a more recent addition to the Engine Guard line up. Looking quite like a mustache.  They have a a drop curve design and a rounded lower half, but they do not leave much room to attach pegs. To remedy this many of the Mustache Bars have integrated footrests built in either in a topside mounted pad or an ingenious flip out peg design that folds into the top when not in use. Now if you want the combination of an Engine Guard with a custom design, you’re in luck, K and G Cycles (www.kandcycles.com) has Deep Sickness Highway Bars, a combination Mustache Bar and security device all in one. Install one of these on your bike and people will be afraid to touch it. If you want to add even more protection to your bike, saddlebag guards are also available, giving even more of your bike peace of mind. So you see even though comfort, style, and protection are 3 words that appear to have no possible connection, they actually work well for you and your ride.

How Do you Protect your Hands while you Ride?

   What’s the most vulnerable part of the body for those of us that ride motorcycles not equipped with a fairing? If you answered “The  Hands” you are correct. So much of the ride relies on our hands, as every aspect of it is affected by them. If our hands are cold it affects us and the ride. We know if they get hit by an airborne object it affects us. Is there a solution out there other than a fairing? There is and K and G Cycles (www.kandgcyclyes.com) is happy to pass it on to you. Wing Shield Hand Guards and Desert Digits. Hand protectors for almost every bike out there.

brukus wingshield WSH72011   Wing Shields from Brukus Motorcycle Parts. These hand guards address all of the concerns too. Wing Shields are designed to protect your hands from stones, bugs, and other road debris, as well as the cold. Made of tough Lexan polycarbonate, they are virtually unbreakable! One of the toughest transparent materials available today, Lexan is about 300 times stronger than single-strength glass, is weather-resistant, yet remains light weight! Translation – you get lightweight, transparent, virtually unbreakable protection for your hands while traveling on your motorcycle. Sure they could have stopped after giving you unmatched protection, but Brukus stepped up and shaped them to curve over the hand grips on your ride. The shape and curve gives you an aerodynamic advantage that allows the wind to flow smoothly past your hands. Wing Shields are approximately 5″ at their widest point and approximately 12″ in length. Installation is simple, they attach to your bike quickly and easily to the mirror mounts. All the necessary hardware is included and consists of either Stainless Steel or Aluminum. This should give you years of trouble free service.

desert digits DD1000     Up next is Desert Digits DD1000 – Warm and dry equals comfortable travels! That’s exactly what Desert Digits Hand Protectors from Leader Motorcycle delivers. Desert Digits Hand Protectors are mini motorcycle fairings for your hands that attach to the motorcycles handlebars. The unique Ultra-Swivel feature allows you to optimally position them for perfect protection from the elements.  Desert Digits Hand Protectors mount to any round bar 1″ to 1.25″ in diameter. Through a patent pending design Leaders “Ultra Swivel” guards offer unlimited rotational capability. Competitors designs provide only limited rotation or only one or two plane angling. Translation – you can adjust the Desert Digits exactly where it you want them. The problem with traditional wind deflectors is that air and rain hits the surface of the deflector, bounces off it, and continues around the plate. The Result: cold, wet hands! The Desert Digits patent-pending convex shape solves this problem by actually funneling the air to the outside of the riders hands via the windshield and the Desert Digits. In addition the Desert Digits hand protectors elongated shape (6 x 13) provides more coverage for your hands and wrists. Let’s face it, looks matter – but so does quality. So the Desert Digits hand protectors were manufactured with BOTH in mind. Using rugged marine-grade vinyl that looks like leather and stainless steel and chrome plated mounting hardware, it doesn’t get much better than this. Built with simplicity in mind, the Desert Digits base bracket installs in minutes with no special tools. Continuing on that idea, the cover itself is easily removed when not in use and can be stored in a saddlebag or other location. You do not have to keep them on all the time.

Getting the Most out of your Fuel System with a Fuelpak

   When it comes time to install performance, an exhaust system is the first step to adding power to your ride. Now, you need a fuel management system that can handle the job and install with ease. You need a Fuelpak from Vance & Hines, available from your friends at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com).

   Your fuel injected Amfuel pakerican V-Twin is equipped with an ECU (electronic control unit) that’s programmed to deliver fuel to the motor based on an air/fuel ratio for a stock air filter and stock Exhaust system. While the ECU can self-adjust for environmental factors such as temperature and altitude, it can’t adjust for mechanical changes like adding performance parts. When you install a performance Exhaust system, your airflow changes, so you need a fuel management system that adjusts your air/fuel ratio to match the changes. That fuel management system is The Fuelpak from Vance & Hines. The perfect combination with your performance Exhaust system. Ahead of the competition, The Fuelpak is the most advanced system of it’s type. Nothing will compare.

   Asfeul pak chart shown in the illustration, your stock air/fuel ratio runs just slightly lean, however, when you install an aftermarket Exhaust, that ratio changes, becoming even leaner. The white dashed line reflects the baseline air/fuel ratio and where you want to be for optimum throttle response. Unlike other fuel management systems that can only add fuel, The Fuelpak from Vance & Hines adds or takes away fuel, allowing for a more precise range of refinement in your air/fuel ratio. Designed and manufactured entirely in-house, the technical staff is constantly at work developing custom fuel maps for popular brands.

   Don’t settle for a system that is difficult to install. Afterall, you want to focus on what you enjoy most. Riding. When the engineering staff at Vance & Hines designed Fuelpak, the focus was on making installation and use as simple as possible. The Fuelpak from Vance & Hines plugs directly into the factory wiring harness and ECU using t-tap and OEM style connectors to stay fastened securely to your bike. Fuelpak fits so discreetly that, with the exception of the improved throttle response and rideability, you won’t even know it’s there. And should you ever remove Fuelpak, your motorcycle will return to operating at it’s original factory settings.

  No computers are needed, and there is no need to tune your bike on a dyno. All the hard work was done for you. Once the Fuelpak is installed, locate your fuel map from the setting chart provided or look it up here. Next, wth the ignition turned on, enter the values for your specific map directly into Fuelpak and calibrate your TPS (throttle position sensor). Finally, shut off the ignition, put the cover back on and you’re ready to ride. That’s the beauty of Vance & Hines Fuelpak,  the settings you entered are the result of our extensive dyno and road testing to find the ideal fuel map for your Harley.

   So call your friends at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) and let them help you get your hands on one of the easiest tuners on the market for your Harley and experience the difference.

Safety, Style and Support in the Response 2.0 Boot

   The boots we ride in come in a whole load of different styles, but a lot of the aren’t actually riding boots. Some of us like Cowboy Boots, some prefer work boots, others like hiking boots, and still some choose not to wear boots, and even though it is a personal preference, the right riding boot can make a huge difference. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) is proud to offer you a great riding boot, loaded with features, at a price that beats the competition. The Response 2.0 Riding Boots by TourMaster.

tourmaster response 2.0    The Response 2.0 boots from Tour Master are a great boot for everyday street use. These boots are very similar in style to a short hiking boot. Because of its simple style it works great for people that want to wear the boots off the bike as well, making them a wise choice for commuters or tourers since they won’t need to pack additional boots or shoes. The most intriguing aspect of the boots is it’s color. Yes, to no ones surprise, they are black, but the finish on the leather leans towards being a “matte” finish rather than slick black, with a feel landing somewhere between a smooth finish and a suede. The “blackout” look which seems to be very popular with black leather motorcycling apparel these days is present here too. The boots have a removable orthopedic foot bed which works well, and since it can be removed out, you’re free to select your own insert if you’d like. Because these are full lace boots, the rider has the liberty to select how snug they want the boots. Since most of the riding boots today are side zip (about 80% of styles) and do not allow for much rider adjustment, this means the chances of getting a good fit is much better. These boots are about 8 inches tall, giving you a good amount of ankle support, while covering your.  A lesson I learned was even though the boots have a waterproof lining, make sure your rain suit or pants are plenty long or rain will come in the tops of a shorter shaft boot like this. Overall, with all the features and benefits these boots have a lot to offer, including good value value.

Response 2.0 Riding Boots:

*Water-repellent leather and PU upper.

*HiPora® waterproof, breathable membrane.

*3M ScotchLite™ on rear area for night-time safety.

*VR single density compound sole for reliable grip.

*100% Polyester round laces plus adjustable Velcro flap for easy fastening.

*Molded nylon ankle guard.

*Shock absorbing latex foam flex panels.

*Leather shift pad.

Adding ABS Style Braking is Simple with TCB

   How often have you said to yourself. “I sure wish my motorcycle had ABS brakes!” Did you purchase that bike pre-owned? Were ABS brakes not an available factory option when your bike was made? I have some good news, you can install a Traction Control Braking (TCB) system on your American V-Twin. Now you can have the same sure-footed response of an Anti-lock breaking system without a costly retro-fit, saving you time and money. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has units ready to ship to your door giving you a safer ride. Check out the video to see how it works.(CLICK HERE)

The Traction Control Braking System is exactly that:
inside TCB II and logo*TRACTION: The tire to ground traction is referred to as coefficient of friction. A TCB System helps increase the amount of wheel slip during aggressive braking maneuvers by using varied amounts of traction.
*CONTROL: During aggressive braking maneuvers or “panic stops”, the area of the tire that is actually on the ground is less than the size of a postcard on most motorcycles. This small area or contact patch is where you are getting your traction. The TCB unit allows the tire to rotate during these aggressive maneuvers and the driver experiences more control of the vehicle because utilizes more of the tires surface. Without any form of Anti-Lock or TCB System, the wheel is more likely to lock up, and as a result, the bike will generally skid out of control.
*BRAKING: Electronic forms of Anti-Lock braking only work at certain minimum speeds by quickly locking and releasing your brakes, but it needs to be noted that ABS still locks your wheels. When your wheels lock at high speeds or when you are on less than desirable road conditions (wet roads, gravel, etc…) this can lead to loss of control. The TCB unit on the other hand works every time you brake and at any speed to help avoid the wheels from locking. Once installed, the TCB becomes an integral part of the brake system it has been applied to.

The TCB Brake System installs in minutes by replacing the banjo-bolt on the Brake Caliper or Master Cylinder. Unlike any other safety product, it works automatically, every time you brake, and at any speed. It works like a “shock absorber” inside the Brake system to help prevent the wheels from locking-up. Wheel lock-up during  emergency or “panic” stops can send your vehicle out of control!

  • Acts like a sTCB10125hock absorber to allow the brake pads to float and/or drag over the rotors natural high and low spots (we are not talking about warped rotors).
  • Automatically increases Rider’s ability to brake in a shorter distance in both regular and panic stops (by as much as 20% in a panic stop at speeds from 35 mph to 55 mph).
  • Helps modulate your brake system.
  • Helps to avoid premature brake lock-up.
  • Improves brake control conditions in most cases.
  • Unlike electronic ABS the TCB System helps prevent lock-up before it happens.
  • Gives you a feeling of more range in your brake levers so you can brake hard with confidence.
  • Delivers maximum affect, when installed on both the front and rear brakes by replacing the “Banjo Bolt”.
  • Specifically designed for motorcycles and ATV’s without anti-lock brake systems (ABS).
  • Will not allow air into your braking system.

TCB Brake System works on motorcycles and ATV’s when an ABS system is not offered from the factory, and costs a fraction of a retro-fit kit if one is even available. TCB Systems are so confident in their product, it even comes with a  “Lifetime Warranty”. Stop by K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) and discover the difference with TCB Systems.*NOTE: In all cases check the manufacturer’s specifications before installation to ensure proper fit.*

Handlebar Storage is now a Reality Thanks to Hopnel

   So you picked out the perfect Cruiser, added Chrome, changed the exhaust, even had it pinstriped, but it still lacks something. Oh yeah, storage! Unless you get one of the big Touring bikes, storage or lack of Storage is something all bikes have in common. On our quest to bring you all the goods to make your bike the best that it can be, K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) found something new from Hopnel. A handlebar mounted storage pouch that offers a universal fit on almost any motorcycle.

BBP-H50-02BKC Univ Hbar Pouch      Legendary Sewn Products Manufacturer Hopnel has done it again with the latest addition to their line up. The universal fit handlebar pouch, another must have storage pouch system  This Handlebar Pouch measures a generous 8” x 4” x 2” and includes Hopnel’s “digital buddy” clear cellphone pocket system. This cellphone pocket measures 7” x 4” and will accommodate cellphones, MP3 or other devices and loads from the inside of the sleeve keeping Mother Nature out while keeping your devices dry. The clear window also allows for touch screen device operation to insure you retain full capability of your electronics gear you stow in the “Digital Buddy”. For a longer life expectancy, the Clear UV stabilized surface allows easy screen reading and will hold up in the toughest environments.  Installation is a breeze with the 4 adjustable straps that allow this handlebar pouch to be easily attached to most non – fairing motorcycles. How’s that for a design that is made for an often forgotten group of riders.

   Hopnel understands there are more riders out there than the Touring crowd and has stepped up to the plate for then. They also understand that with limited space, most storage items need to pull double duty. Designed with that in mind, this universal mount handlebar pouch offers riders a special pocket for your electronics devices that not only allow you to view them, but operate them as well. Head over to our online store (www.kandgcycles.com) and see this and all of the other great products from Hopnel.
