Drag Specialties has a new roundup of products for Harley-Davidson and V-twin shops.

First up is the Buffalo T-Bar (MSRP $159.95), 1.25-in. diameter handlebars that match styling with comfort, according to Drag. Choose from 12 in., 14 in. or 16 in. bars in either show chrome or gloss black finishes. They are drilled for internal wires, work with standard controls, and are notched for throttle-by-wire capability.

New seven-position hydraulic steering damper kits help put a stop to front-end speed wobble, and offer riders better control and a smoother, more comfortable and consistent ride. They are fully adjustable and allow full-fork movement from stop-to-stop, according to Drag.

The steering damper kits fit 2004-2012 XL models and include required mounting hardware and installation instructions. Suggested retail is $239.95.

A new 2.4 in. mini tachometer gauge mount adds function to an old bike or adds space to a cramped control panel. Black-powder-coated to match OEM gauge color, the mini tachometer gauge mount replaces the OEM gauge backing plate and mounts the tach to the OEM speedometer. It accepts all Drag Specialties 2.4 in. mini electronic tachometers and includes required hardware and instructions. This mini tachometer gauge mount fits most 1996-2012 XL and FXD models. Suggested retail: $119.95.

Mini king and queen seats and sissy bar pads add a little nostalgia. The seats feature new, retro styling, with automotive-grade vinyl on the sides and seating area, molded polyurethane foam, and a 3/16 in. ABS thermo-formed seat base with a fully carpeted bottom and rubber bumpers to protect paint.

Thee seats fit all Drag sissy bars and most Harley-Davidson bars. When matched with Drag sissy bar pads (sold separately), they mate for a classic tall-backed seat appearance, Drag says.

The Sissy Bar Pads are designed to match the Mini King and Queen Seats but will also work with other seats. They fit all tall, round or tall square Drag Specialties Sissy Bars and most H-D bars with a 4 in. (+/- 1/8 in.) wide inside dimension. They include all mounting hardware but may not fit in some sissy bars with die-cast or other inserts, according to the company.

The seats and pads are available in several stitch patterns including Red Velvet and Blue Velvet Diamonds. Seats retail $299.95 to $314.95 and the matching pads are $64.95.
