JANEVILLE, Wis. - Drag Specialties has introduced a number of new products to meet customers’ V-twin customization needs.

Late model Harley XL models that are equipped with forward controls do not allow the fitting of standard rider footpegs, but the new Forward Control Conversion Kit allows you to mount standard footpegs, greatly increasing the number of available options.

Kits are available in either chrome or black anodized finish and fit 2011-14 XL1200 models. Standard length control kits have a suggested retail price of $69.95. Extended length kits extend the footpeg mounts two inches, allowing for a more relaxed riding position, and have a suggested retail price of $119.95.

An easy update for fuel tanks is the new Tri-Bar Gas Cap. This cast aluminum cap is a simple upgrade choice for gas tanks requiring cam-style gas caps, the distributor noted. The Tri-Bar Gas Cap is available in a vented and non-vented style and comes in chrome or anodized black. Suggested retail is $59.95.

On the service side, Drag Specialties Piston Kits let you freshen up an engine without having to sacrifice the quality expected from OEM pistons.

Cast-aluminum construction serves as an ideal substitute for stock pistons and the Drag kit pistons have a coating that helps extend overall service life, reduce friction and allows your engine to run cooler, the company noted. Kits include both pistons, wrist pins and clips and accept either OEM or Hastings rings (sold separately). Kits fit 2007-13 96” Twin Cam motors or 2007-14 103” Twin Cam motors. 96” kits carry a suggested retail price of $89.95, while 106” kits retail for $99.95.









Finally, draw attention to the bike without forfeiting performance with the latest Pushrod Cover kit. The kit comes in a chrome finish and with upper and lower tubes, clips, cups, springs and washers, enough to clean up the entire engine.

The kit is compatible with most adjustable pushrods, the company said. Seals and O-rings are sold separately. The Pushrod Cover Kit fits 2004-14 XL models and has a suggested retail price of $89.95.
