FEULING Complete Camchest Kit for Harley-Davidson Milwaukee 8 Engines

FEULING OIL COOLED oiling system kits combine all the needed components to finish  Milwaukee Eight engines oiling system under one part number. Available in HP+ or RACE SERIES kits, FEULING oiling system kits increase oil pressure, oil volume, engine oil flow and return oil scavenging.

The kits promote quieter and smoother engine operation, 27 percent more pressure and scavenge gear volume over stock; 42 percent more scavenge volume through port sizing, matched passages and holes to the engine case; 68 percent more oil volume to the crankshaft and connecting rod bearing; 15-25 degree cooler engine temperatures; 15-30 degree cooler oil temperatures; 10-30 more PSI of oil pressure; and reduces wet sumping, blow by and oily air cleaners.

Both HP+ and RACE SERIES kits include FEULINGS HIGH FLOW billet camplate made from 7075 aluminum which is 50 percent harder and stronger than the factory or Feuling OE+ camplates. FEULING increases oil flow and volume by enlarging the oil pump reservoirs and critical oil passages including matching the oil port holes throughout the camplate to the port holes in the engine case which increases engine oil flow to the lifters, piston cooling jets, crankshaft and rod bearings.

The FEULING oil pumps are bench tested, the relief valve is seated and sealed to a minimum of 30 psi with full pop off at 55-60 psi. The increased oil volume from the larger gears and properly sized passages along with the pressure relief valve seat and seal from these oil pumps is essential for proper oiling system function. The FEULING oil pump and camplate combination eliminate common pressure and scavenge issues associated with the factory oiling systems.

Sons Of Speed Back Again for Sixth Race During Biketoberfest 

At New Smyrna Speedway

Daytona, FL (October 16, 2018) – Billy Lane’s proven Sons of Speed vintage motorcycle boardtrack race is back for a sixth time during the 26th running of the annual Fall  Biketoberfest Event in Daytona Beach Florida. On Friday, October 19th, at 3:00 p.m., over a dozen daredevil vintage motorcycle racers will speed around the banked track at New Smyrna Speedway.

“We’re coming off a successful Sturgis race, which took place on dirt,” said Billy Lane, renowned bike builder and founder of Sons of Speed. “The paved banks of the New Smyrna offers racers the chance to let it all  hang out. There is nothing like these 100 plus year old machines chasing each other down.”

Inspired by early twentieth-century board-track racers, the Sons of Speed race hearkens back to a stripped down, wide-open approach to motorcycle riding. Held at New Smyrna Speedway’s half-mile, banked racetrack, the sixth SOS race will feature thirteen riders in several different heats, and winners of the heats will advance to a championship round. Each racer will sit astride hand-built racing chassis holding pre-1925 1,000cc American V-Twin engines, and most racers will customize their machines by fabricating handlebars, exhaust, fenders, foot pegs and fuel/oil tanks.

Dozens of racers have raced in Sons of Speed races across the country including: Billy Lane, Xavier Muriel, Ken Curtis, Shelly Rossmeyer-Pepe, Buzz Kanter, Dan Toce, Rhett Rotten, Ebay Jake, Rick Petcko, Mark Hanna, Freddie Bollwage, Matt Walksler, Brook James, Matt Harris and Moonshiner Josh Owens.

Check out the Sons of Speed Facebook page for breaking news and upcoming events. You can purchase general admission tickets online for $20. A limited amount of 50 VIP tickets will be available for purchase at the gate that will allow infield access.

The inaugural Sons Of Speed race will take place in Florida at New Smyrna Speedway during Daytona Bike Week in March 2017. Co-founded by veteran motorcycle bike builder Billy Lane, the first Sons Of Speed race will feature twenty of the sport’s most accomplished riders, builders, and enthusiasts, including Buzz Kanter (publisher, American Iron Magazine), Shelley Rossmeyer-Pepe (GM, Bruce Rossmeyer’s Harley-Davidson), vintage racer Brittney Olsen, Warren and Billy Lane, Rick Petko (of American Chopper fame and master mechanic at Orange County Choppers) and Matt Walksler (motorcyclist and Associate Director of Wheels Through Time).

Indian Motorcycle’s Scout FTR750 Sweeps Top Five At Minnesota Mile

Indian Motorcycle’s Scout FTR750 Sweeps Top Five At Minnesota Mile

Indian Motorcycle Wrecking Crew Rider Bryan Smith Takes First, Privateers Henry Wiles and Robert Pearson Finish 2-3

Indian Motorcycle Racing and the FTR750 swept the top five positions at the Minnesota Mile. Wrecking Crew rider Bryan Smith earned his second win of the season, while Indian privateers Henry Wiles and Robert Pearson rounded out the podium aboard their FTR750s placing second and third, respectively.

The main event kicked off with a heated battle for first between Wrecking Crew rider and 2018 Grand National Champion Jared Mees and Indian privateer Briar Bauman, who eventually got away from Mees in the first half of the race. Mees, who continued to trail Bauman for several more laps experienced a mechanical issue which took him out of the running, leaving Bauman to lead the pack with a comfortable gap. With a little over a lap to go, Bauman ran out of fuel, leaving the first-place position wide open for Bryan Smith who ultimately clinched the win.

“We’re thrilled to be hosting the Minnesota Mile in Indian Motorcycle’s backyard and it was great to see Bryan take the win after an exciting night of racing,” said Gary Gray, Vice President – Racing, Technology & Service for Indian Motorcycle. “Mees and Bauman fought hard and we look forward to seeing them back at the season finale at the Meadowlands Mile.”

Mees has already secured the 2018 Grand National Title and now has 346 points. He has the possibility of recording the highest single-season win percentage in American Flat Track history if he wins the final race of the season this weekend.  Indian Motorcycle privateer Henry Wiles currently ranks second with 259 points, while Brian Bauman ranks third with 201 points. Jeffrey Carver Jr. and Chad Cose are fourth and fifth with 194 and 168 points, respectively.

The final race of the season takes place on October 6 at the Meadowlands Mile in New Jersey.

Authorities Misapplying Texas Law to Disarm Bikers

Authorities Misapplying Texas Law to Disarm Bikers

The MPP has repeatedly reported on the rising trend in Texas of arresting members of motorcycle clubs for possession of weapons, including members that have no criminal record and that possess a license to carry (LTC, or concealed carry permit). Prosecutions follow arrests, and on September 21st, 2018 a jury in El Paso convicted an individual with no criminal record solely for being a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club in possession of a legal weapon.

If this seems outrageous, your instincts are correct. The MPP, after conducting cursory research on 46.02, has identified precedent, Ex Parte Flores 483 SW 3d 632 (2015), that clearly articulates how law enforcement is currently misinterpreting and misapplying Texas statute in violation of the basic rules of evidence and the US Constitutional.

Law Enforcement and prosecutors should immediately cease and desist misapplying Texas statute. Applying Texas Penal Code 46.02 to members of clubs with no criminal records, and even LTC’s, would chill 1st Amendment Association and the doctrine of personal guilt, “a cornerstone of American Jurisprudence.”

Indian Motorcycle Debuts Highly-Anticipated FTR 1200 & FTR 1200 S

Indian Motorcycle Debuts Highly-Anticipated FTR 1200 & FTR 1200 S

New Flat Track Inspired Street Bike Draws From Indian Motorcycle’s Storied History & Success in Flat Track Racing 

All-New Platform Combines Flat Tracker Styling with Powerful New Liquid-Cooled V-Twin Engine with 120 Horsepower 

Today Indian Motorcycle, America’s First Motorcycle Company, set a new standard for American motorcycling with the unveiling of the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S.  The FTR platform proudly breaks new ground and answers the call of enthusiasts around the world anxiously awaiting its debut. 

Inspired by Indian Motorcycle’s storied history and success in flat track racing, the FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S take design and styling cues from the championship-winning FTR750 race bike that has dominated American Flat Track since it was introduced in 2016. It also takes styling inspiration from the FTR1200 Custom, unveiled a year ago as an exploration of what a flat track-inspired street bike could be.  The platform delivers an American motorcycle with true flat tracker style and the performance to back it up.

The FTR 1200 combines race inspired design and nimble handling with an upright riding position to create a commanding riding experience. A new 1203cc V-Twin engine with approximately 120 horsepower makes sure every rider feels like a pro when they twist the throttle. The new platform is a key component in the company’s broader mission to expand its global appeal and reach new riders. 

“Our vision from the beginning was to be more than a traditional American V-twin brand. We continually seek to broaden Indian Motorcycle’s reach to a wider range of riders, and FTR 1200 represents a significant step forward in that strategy,” said Steve Menneto, President, Indian Motorcycle. “Indian Motorcycle was founded on performance and innovation, and we remain grounded by our founder’s mindset of constantly pushing forward. In light of that history, the FTR 1200 is a natural extension for the brand that we couldn’t be more excited about.”

Housed in a trellis frame with a sporty riding position, both models feature an inverted front suspension with radially mounted dual Brembo brakes for exceptional control and stopping power. The fuel tank is strategically located under the seat for a lower center of gravity and more centralized weight distribution. Similar to the FTR750 race bike, the airbox is positioned directly above the engine to optimize airflow and maximize power. Both models feature a similar rear suspension and swingarm design as the FTR750 to not only provide a race bike look, but also ensure maximum grip and compliance on even the roughest of roads. Newly-developed Dunlop street tires with flat track-inspired tread, a chain final drive, and ProTaper flat tracker aluminum handlebars complete the race bike look. 

“This is an extremely exciting platform for us, and after investing such a significant amount of time, expertise and energy in the design process, it’s an incredible feeling to finally show the world these motorcycles,” said Rich Christoph, the Indian Motorcycle Senior Designer who was also instrumental in the design of the FTR750 and FTR1200 Custom.  “Our primary focus was to ensure these motorcycles carried the same lines and form language as the FTR750 and 1200 Custom.  We knew that’s what riders around the world fell in love with.  I couldn’t be more proud to turn the FTR750 into a flat tracker for the street and help launch Indian into a new era.” 


Adding to the design is a host of premium features and ride-enhancing technologies. The FTR 1200 and FTR 1200 S models both feature full LED lighting, including a new headlight that provides an unmistakable face for the platform, a fast-charge USB port to easily charge mobile devices, anti-lock brakes (ABS) and cruise control for a comfortable ride. 

Propelling both models is a powerful new liquid-cooled 1203cc V-twin engine making approximately 120 horsepower and 85 ft-lbs of torque.  A flat torque curve ensures a progressive, predictable power delivery with loads of low-end punch and flexibility. The engine features a 12.5:1 compression ratio, high flow cylinder heads, and dual throttle bodies for optimal airflow and power.  Additionally, the engine makes wide use of magnesium to reduce weight and utilizes a low-inertia crankshaft that allows the engine to rev to its redline quickly for thrilling acceleration. 

The FTR 1200 S features all that and more, including: 

  • Fully adjustable front and rear piggy-back suspension with preload, compression, and rebound adjustments so riders can perfectly match the bike to their personal riding style 
  • 4.3-inch customizable Ride Command LCD touch screen with Bluetooth for easy mobile device pairing
  • Lean-angle sensitive stability control, ABS, traction control, and wheelie mitigation control for improved confidence and control
  • Three Ride Modes (Sport, Standard, Rain) with unique throttle response and traction control intervention levels

The new platform underwent extensive development and testing to ensure it meets Indian Motorcycle’s high quality standards and performs at the highest levels.

“These bikes have gone through a rigorous, multi-year design and testing process to ensure that they perform as good as they look,” explains Ben Lindaman, Indian Motorcycle Senior International Product Manager.  “The process was incredibly robust, including over one million miles logged through simulated rides.  We also accumulated tens of thousands of test miles on the street with input from racers, including our championship winning Wrecking Crew flat track team and former Grand Prix racers.”

The FTR 1200 starts at $12,999 and is available in Thunder Black, while the FTR 1200 S starts at $14,999 and is available in Indian Motorcycle Red over Steel Gray, Titanium Metallic over Thunder Black Pearl, and a Race-Replica paint scheme matching the iconic FTR750 race bike. Both models will be available in dealers in spring of 2019.
