Victory Motorcycles And S&S Cycle Partner To Introduce Made For Victory Performance Cam Kit

By | New Product News | No Comments

IMG_1218Combined performance parts offer 20% more horsepower and 10% more torque for motorcycles featuring the powerful Freedom 106 engine

Press Release: Victory Motorcycles has teamed with performance specialist S&S Cycle to offer a vast increase in the output of motorcycles powered by the Freedom 106 engine, including the Magnum, Cross Country and Cross Country Tour, as well as the Cross Roads and Hard-Ball.

The new Made For Victory S&S Stage 2 Performance Cam Kit (MSRP $549.99 US / $699.99 CAD) is designed to significantly increase performance without sacrificing smooth engine response at lower speeds to deliver the full-bore Victory Motorcycles riding experience. Designed to be used in conjunction with the Victory Stage 1 Tri-Oval Exhaust or Victory Stage 1 Round Exhaust (required and sold separately), this combined kit generates 20 percent more horsepower and 10 percent more torque than the already potent stock Freedom 106 engine for the Cross Country and Cross Roads models, which is well known for handling horsepower upgrades.

The kit includes front and rear cams, a high-flow air dam specifically designed to significantly increase airflow to the engine, and a calibration download card for the dealer. Currently available in 49 states (still pending CARB approval for sale in California) the kit features a one-year warranty. Dealer installation is required.

A Made For Victory endorsement signifies factory approval in the use of these products on Victory motorcycles, that applicable quality, emissions and safety requirements have been met, and that your motorcycle warranty will not be impacted with the addition of these aftermarket products.

image001“Made For Victory products allows Victory Motorcycles to partner with some of the top suppliers in the motorcycle industry,” says Brandon Kraemer, Product Manager for Victory Motorcycles. “This kit requires no additional Dyno tuning or aftermarket assistance and completely removes the normal trade-off of performance vs. drivability that is common when installing different cams. An additional benefit to the rider is a less costly upgrade vs. the aftermarket, with the production fuel system being utilized as it was designed to be without any further components.”

image004“Making power is what we do and we’re excited to partner with Victory in their efforts to expand their performance product range,” says David Zemla, Vice President of Marketing at S&S Cycle.

Made For Victory accessories are developed exclusively for Victory Motorcycles through partnership collaborations with leading accessory manufacturers that share our vision to provide the best products to riders. These partnerships reinforce our commitment to offer an extensive selection of custom accessories that deliver on style, performance and enhance the Victory riding experience.

Stay tuned for more Made For Victory partnerships to be announced later in 2016. Visit VictoryMotorcycles.com/MadeForVictory for more information and to see the lineup of accessories. Learn more about Victory Motorcycles at VictoryMotorcycles.com or follow on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

Indian Motorcycle, America’s first motorcycle company, is proud to announce its re-entry into the AMA Pro Flat Track series with its first full-factory racing effort since the 1950s.

AMA Pro Flat Track is highly competitive and has evolved into a demanding, technical and specialized event that typically sees bar-to-bar action and sublime motorcycle control at high speeds on varied dirt surfaces. The Indian Motorcycle Racing Team will contest the series with the all – new and proprietary Scout FTR 750 liquid-cooled 750cc four-valve V-Twin competition engine specifically designed for flat track and engineered into a specially built chassis.

E15 Issues Makes It Even More Important to Use Star Tron Enzyme Fuel Treatment

By | New Product News | No Comments

14308.A1The EPA is actively working to increase the amount of ethanol in fuel to 15%. Here is how E15 differs from E10 and what do you need to know about it.

While many cars and trucks can use fuel with 15% ethanol, virtually no motorcycles can use this fuel. Additionally, E15 fuel poses a special risk to two-cycle engines which run hotter with E15, and as such could suffer damage. More importantly, manufacturer warranties will not cover damage caused by fuel containing more than 10% ethanol (E10).  Be aware that no fuel additive will allow engines designed for E10 to run E15 or higher ethanol blends.

Ethanol can have corrosive effects on rubber fuel lines and some metal surfaces.

Ethanol does not produce as much energy as gasoline, which is why engines using ethanol-blended fuel cannot produce maximum horsepower or fuel economy.

As an alcohol, ethanol attracts moisture; the more ethanol in a fuel, the more likely it is to draw in moisture, which will have a negative impact on the quality of the fuel, raise the potential for corrosion and will decrease the performance of the engine.

Ethanol and gasoline cannot form a chemical bond. Left untreated, this fuel begins to degrade soon after blending, leading to the formation of performance-robbing gums and other deposits. Traditional stabilizers can decrease the combustibility of fuel, negatively affecting engine performance.  Read More

By | New Product News | No Comments

3fenders_1Three New Versions of a Classic Fender Style that Covers All Stock Front-Wheel Applications from 1986 – 2017

Press Release: Paul Yaffe’s Bagger Nation, the custom shop known for providing the Harley-Davidson aftermarket with trend-setting designs of the highest quality, has released a new line of solid steel OEM sized fenders. These new versions of the classic Yaffe styled fenders come in all-new dimensions that perfectly fit all touring stock front wheels and tires.

“These fenders fit all 16-, 17-, 18- and 19-inch wheels perfectly,” says Paul Yaffe. “In other words, they cover all stock front wheel applications.” We accomplish this with our exclusive double radius tooling paired with our proprietary fender width. These create a glove like fit on all 4 sizes of wheels!

All-new tooling allows each fender to be “deep-drawn” from one indestructible piece of 14-gauge steel and then precision laser cut for perfect symmetry. These stamped fenders are perfectly straight–no need for any body work or modifications–you simply check them for a perfect fit, then scuff and paint them. All mounting holes are pre-drilled at the factory, making them a true bolt-on accessory–no spinning, no welding, no seams or grooves that need working. Read More

Friday Funny

By | Humor | No Comments

A bro’s ol’ lady went to the doctor one day and came home with a jar. She said the doctor had told her to come back the next day with a specimen, but that she didn’t know what he meant.

“I don’t know either,” the bro told her, “Go next door and ask Mrs. Citizen.”

About two hours later the ol’ lady came back with here hair all f’d up, one eye all swollen and blackened, and mud all over her.

“Where the hell were you, and what the heck happened to you?” the bro asked her.

“It’s all your fault,” she yelled, “I went next door to ask Mrs. Citizen what a specimen was. She told me to piss in a bottle, so I told her to go crap in a barrel, and that’s when the fight started.”
