Posted on 19 Sep 2018 in Powersports | 0 comments

We wish that we could offer you a simple answer. We know you’re wondering what kind of exhaust is best for your Harley.  You’re probably hoping that we’ll say: “Here, get this! It’s the best on the market, it’ll look and work great and it’s incredibly cheap!” …If only it were that easy. But, life is never quite that simple, and that’s not something we can offer. However, we can offer you what the pros and cons are of the available options. The options that we’d like to cover are slip on exhausts (mufflers), 2 into 1 exhaust systems, and true dual exhaust systems. Slip On Exhausts One thing that a lot of people like to hear is that they don’t actually have to swap out the […]

Fall motorcycle rides are the best way to take in the fall colors. The leaves change in slow motion, melting into 1000 shades of red and yellow that slowly drip down to the forest floor.

When you and your passenger hop on your Harley to go for a ride, you do it to feel alive, to feel the wind in your hair and the rumble of your bike. One thing that you don’t want to feel however, are the bumps in the road.

A Buyer’s Guide to Heavy Duty UTV Axles

Posted on 21 Aug 2018 in Powersports | 0 comments

Just imagine: You’ve broken one of the stock UTV axles. You’re 47 miles from the nearest sign of civilization, stranded in a dried up creek bed. For 3 days you fend off bobcats and wild boars while fashioning a new CV axle out of pine boughs and acorns. Finally, you manage to limp your UTV back to the nearest sign of civilization with a new, undying resolve: to replace all your stock axles. Does this sound familiar? If it does, the first thing you need to do is go sign a movie deal, your story could be a blockbuster hit. If it doesn’t, well, your movie deal moment might still be coming if you keep running stock axles with your other aftermarket upgrades. Stock axles are fine […]

Gain Ultimate Control with ATV/UTV Power Steering Kits

Posted on 10 Apr 2018 in Powersports | 0 comments

Power steering on an ATV or UTV may not be a feature that you think is a ‘must have’.  And for a lot of riders it isn’t a must.  But power steering is for sure something that can make your rides a lot more pleasurable and less tiring. The fact that many new wheelers now offer electronic power steering as an option is proof enough that it can improve your riding.  Understandably so, though, the box for EPS on the order form often goes unchecked in an effort to save some dollars on a new machine.  You’ve been riding without it for so many years already, so why get it now?  You’ll find the answer to that the first time you ride someone else’s machine that is […]

Level Up Your Harley With S&S Performance Kits

Posted on 09 Feb 2018 in Powersports | 1 comment

Who doesn’t love performance.  We love to talk about it and we love the way it feels when we twist the throttle.  But not everyone knows where to start in order to maximize the performance of their machine.  Knowing what parts to get and what adjustments to make can be a challenge. Many riders start with a Stage 1 upgrade, which is a great first step.  But what if you want more than that?  The next step is a Stage 2 upgrade consisting of swapping cams along with doing the Stage 1 upgrade.  This step does require some internal work and in turn, you need to have a bit more confidence in your wrenching skills if you are to do it yourself.  If that is too much […]
