‘Precision’ M-8 covers and accents Kuryakyn has introduced its first complete line of bolt-on engine covers designed exclusively for Milwaukee-Eight models. Said to “showcase modern and muscular designs that deliver a truly defined appearance to emulate internal movements of the engine and transmission,” Kuryakyn say, “the resulting look produces a seamless integration with every factory component, whether used individually or as a complete set. “Historically we designed our engine chrome components to be used together,” said Kenny Ladoucer, Kuryakyn Category Manager. “If you didn’t buy a certain piece, it looked like something was missing. The ‘Precision’ system is different in that each part can be integrated independently, pieced together over time, or used to target specific areas of the motor to create a visual impact.” Described as serving as “an extension of the Milwaukee- Eight’s design language,” the collection includes groupings of unique covers and accents that bring the same powerful appearance to often overlooked areas of the engine block. Focus areas include the cylinder base, inner primary, tappet block, transmission and starter, as well as the voltage regulator, coolant pump for liquid cooled models, and oil cooler, among others.” Previous iterations of Kuryakyn engine covers have incorporated the use of VHB adhesive for installation. Everything in the ‘Precision’ line is bolt-on, “reducing the hassle of removing and re-installing parts for service maintenance.” “Kuryakyn has established a reputation for developing engine covers,” said Industrial Design Manager Michael Bates. “When we got our hands on the new Milwaukee- Eight, we knew this was going to be an incredible opportunity and journey for our team. We paid close attention to the original inspiration behind the design, and then pinpointed opportunities to make the look more complete. What we added incorporates the same muscular styling cues found throughout the engine. There aren’t many projects that consume our whole team, and the entire Kuryakyn Product Development group played a role in all phases of creating the ‘Precision’ collection. We’re incredibly proud to see this line of parts hit the market.” The majority of components are currently offered in premium chrome finish, with a handful of select pieces also available in black. Gloss black versions of the entire collection are in development and will be available in late summer 2017.

Now, 10 years later, with Biker’s Choice on board as his distributor, Dar’s parts program is growing rapidly. Machined from solid 6061 T6 billet aluminum, these knurled moto grips are “all grip with no slip,” says Dar. “Our classically styled moto grips have perfect knurling to ensure great grip without tearing up your hands or gloves. “Aggressively knurled for maximum grip, they have a slight raised arc to fit perfectly in the palm of the hand, and I am proud to be able to say that they’ve turned out pretty good - they look amazing!” Gold anodized, they have the H-D style dual pull cable fitment for 1” diameter bars.
