JANESVILLE, Wis. - With spring now officially sprung in many areas, riders are emerging from hibernation to hit the roads. For the V-twin fans out there, Drag Specialties has a quartet of new products aimed improving comfort and style.
First are Drag's new coil covers for the Harley-Davidson Blackline model. The covers come with a steel body and are available with or without a mesh insert.
Your customers can choose from a smooth or skull design, both of which are available in chrome with a black insert or black powder coat with a chrome mesh insert. The coil covers have fitments for all 2011-2013 FXS models.
Next up are Drag Specialties new fairing mount mirrors, pieces that the company says offers a unique appearance from traditional handlebar-mounted mirrors.
These products are designed specifically for Harley-Davidson batwing fairings, and are made to mount just inside the inner fairing. The mirrors reportedly have a wide range of adjustability and are available in a chrome finish with glass measuring 4.25 in.X 4 in. They come with or without a blind spot mirror and include mounting hardware. Sold in pairs, the mirrors fit 1996-2013 FLHX and Trike models.
The new lower-profile Predator two-up seat is designed with an improved fit, the seat features solar-reflective leather in the seating area and automotive-grade vinyl on the sides.
According to the distributor this design helps reduce surface temperature by as much as 25 degrees F, adding that this helps give the seat more durability and a longer life over conventional leather or vinyl. The 3/16 in. ABS seat base features rubber bumpers and a fully carpeted bottom to protect paint.
The seats reportedly work with all drag-style and most Harley-Davidson sissy bars. The seats fit 1996-2003 FXD and 2004-2005 FXD models and come in a smooth or flame design.
The new 8.25 in. short turn signal mounting bracket from Drag is made to help a rider spruce up the rear end of his or her bike. This bracket replaces the OEM part and features a shorter, slimmer design — it's 4.75 in. shorter than stock.
The bracket can accept stock or aftermarket turn signals, is available in gloss black and will fit 1986-2013 FLST/C models, 1993-1996 FLSTN models and 1991-2013 FLT/HT models (w/ flat-style lights.)
