‘ Long Travel System ’ - It ’ s all about the ride

Fullerton , California based specialist Platinum Air Suspension has set out to offer improved touring ride quality , comfort and performance by completely redesigning its FLH air ride system . The new Long Travel shock options feature a redesigned machined eyelet , an airtight locking ring , new cylinder and longer rod . All of these new features “ result in an improved air ride system and a lower sitting height for your ride ,” says owner and designer Mike Ferris . The Long Travel system has a maximum extension of
13 ½ inches and minimum retraction of 9 ¼ inches , so the bike will sit at least an inch lower than Platinum ’ s traditional FLH system . The new shocks are available in chrome or high gloss black with blacked-out rod . The blacked-out option features an extremely durable and scratch resistant paint that is tough and can handle the wear and tear . The Platinum Long Travel system is available with a front air ride system with your choice of air pucks or air cylinder . Platinum Air Suspension has been in business since 2004 , and Platinum products are made in the USA from “ nothing but the highest quality materials .” The system includes air cylinders machined from 6061 T- 6 billet aluminum , air control valve , DOT-approved 1 / 4 ” line and fitting , plus switch harness , air compressor , hardware and line cutter . The system comes complete with a one-year warranty .

M-8 camshaft needle bearing remover / installer

Speaker grills and axle spacers

New from Orange , California based Renegade Wheels are these matching speaker grills for touring models . Available in most of their wheel designs in either chrome , phantom-cut , polished or anodized color finishes , they are “ a high-grade piece , CNCmachined out of T-6061 billet aluminum that kicks the cheap plastic items in the ass .” Renegade say dealers can combine their wheels , air cleaners , hidden axle , axle spacers , derby cover and speaker grills to give their customers ’ Tourers the “ ultimate quality styling upgrade .” Saddlebag lid grills also available . Also seen here , Renegade ’ s ‘ Enforcer ’ axle spacers eliminate the drab stock axle spacers on Tourers with high quality CNC-machined , lightweight , high
strength billet aluminum replacements that are cut and tapered to the exact diameter of the edge of all of Harley-Davidson ’ s stock wheel hubs , flowing with the lines of the rim perfectly . “ These axle spacers are for those who appreciate fine details and seek to perfect the already near perfect lines of the Bagger . For ABS motorcycles , there is a matching ABS pick-up cover , and for non- ABS motorcycles there is a standard spacer .” Available in brushed , black anodized or chrome finishes .
Tool and performance specialist JIMS have stepped up again . The new M-8 engine returns to the single cam design , which requires a new tool for accurate replacement of the camshaft inner needle bearing . JIMS have created a remover that uses the “ JIMS Style ” collet as well as a fine threaded installation driver for correct and accurate replacement . They have incorporated a new removal hole that works as a window and allows you to see what you ’ re doing while using the tool . Simple and time saving - so JIMS ! JIMS , USA , www . jimsusa . com
