Tucker Rocky is distributing Puig’s new Pro frame sliders. Shown here are the ones for the 2009-to-2012 Yamaha R1. The sliders are made of high-impact nylon and have a wide surface. They feature a blocking system that prevents them from spinning around during sliding.
An interchangeable rubber end helps riders avoid injury to their knee and leg, and is available in different colors. The sliders come with instructions and do not require any modification. Suggested retail is $159, and a POP display is available.
The new S&S Super Stock Stealth air cleaner allows 1999-to-2012 Harley-Davidson Big Twin riders to get all the performance of the S&S design (including the air directional “stinger” cone in the filter) and hide it under their stock air cleaner. MSRP is $125.95. If customers own a 1993-to-1999 Harley with an Evolution engine, or a Sportster, they can still use the air cleaner but won’t be able to use their stock covers.
Which leads us to another S&S new product: Super Stock air cleaner covers. The Airstream cover is an updated version of the classic S&S teardrop. Bobber and Muscle covers offer a more custom look. All three styles come in chrome or “Black Jack.” MRSPs range from $79.95 to $139.95.
Repsol’s entire product lineup (including aerosols) feature a new highly visible color, as well as a re-engineered sealing system at the caps to prevent leakage. In addition to the color change, Repsol has switched to heavier plastic for its bottles. All one-liter bottles also have a new pop-up spout. The new packaging is a running change, meaning all part numbers will remain the same.
Rush Racing Products’ latest chrome slip-on mufflers are for the 2005-to-2012 Victory Hammer and Jackpot and the 2006-to-2012 Victory Kingpin and Vegas. The company also now offers chrome and black slip-ons for the 2001-to-2012 Honda Gold Wing. All these Rush slip-ons are available in a muffler-and-tip package program.
Speedway Motorsport Shelters, maker of retractable motorcycle covers, is a new Tucker Rocky supplier. Speedway customers ride their motorcycles into their shelter. They then lower a retractable waterproof cover. The shelter keeps out the elements while offering cross-ventilation to prevent condensation from occurring inside. There are two big windows on each side of the shelter. The shelters come in two sizes: Standard/Sport ($325.95 retail) and Touring Shelter ($425.95) for full-dress touring bikes. Speedway offers the POP display shown along with a promotional banner.
TTS Inc. will soon introduce a completely revamped version of its MasterTune system for Harleys. Just one cool update will be a “flight control” feature that will allow customers to install the little device on the bike, take it with them, and then bring it back with a recording of what problems they had while riding. MSRP for the new MasterTune will be $445, only a little higher than the current version.

The first three retail for $100, the other for $110. The black gloss model will also come with polarized lenses for $150. The sunglasses are made in Italy.
