MILWAUKEE, WIS. - The hits keep coming from the product development folks at the Motor Co. New to the lineup are bits and pieces for Sportsters, Heritage Softails and Road Glides.
First up is the new Signature Touring Seat with backrest for 2004-and-later Sportster models with a 4.5 gal. fuel tank. This slick seat from Genuine Motor Accessories offers a combination of foam density and shape designed for long-haul riding. It has a comfortable, 15-in.-wide seating area and a narrow nose for foot-to-ground confidence. It features a removable and adjustable rider backrest that folds down for easier passenger mounting.
The backrest can be adjusted to five different height positions and a wide range of forward/back angle adjustment with a quick twist of the control knob. Can be paired with the Signature Series Passenger Pillion.
For the Heritage Softail there is the new Classic Quick Detach Saddlebag Conversion Kit. This kid converts OE fixed-mount bags to those that can be removed in seconds. Riders remove the saddlebags by pulling and twisting a locking handle within each bag.
An exclusive three-point mounting system distributes the load to minimize flex and bounce, and helps retain the OE weight capacity. The kit fits 2003-and-later Heritage Softail Classics with OE saddlebags. Installation requires separate purchase of appropriate docking hardware kit.
The Daymaker LED headlamps for Road Glides provide a brighter, more focused white light compared to standard incandescent lamps. These headlamps features horizontal D-shaped optical lenses that focus light into a pool immediately in front of the motorcycle. Separate high-beam and low-beam projector lenses focus light further down the road.
The solid-state LEDs are designed for a long life, and the shock- and vibration-resistant lamp assembly mounts into the existing light housing. No external ballast or wiring harness is required. The kits are available in chrome or gloss-black for 2004-and-later Road Glides.
