Mustang now offers seat matching FL Lid Covers

It’s no secret that Harley® FL touring riders have a reputation for putting hard miles on their baggers–which can mean scuffed or scratched hard saddlebag lids!  Whether you want to hide those battered bag lids or wisely protect their showroom-fresh look, seasoned riders know that Mustang’s lid covers are the perfect solution.

For years, Mustang’s popular lid covers for 1993-13 and 2014-17 FL Touring models with OE hard bags have been available in plain black (only $109 per pair) or with chrome or black pearl-centered studs ($129 MSRP).  Mustang is now introducing a new line of lid covers to match their latest seats: diamond stitch, deluxe style, carbon and the Dave Perewitz Signature Series for only $139 per pair.

Mustang’s form-fitted lid covers are made from the highest quality expanded vinyl and are uniquely designed to fit snugly with no wrinkles, unsightly straps or Velcro tabs.  As with all Mustang seats, lid covers are proudly designed and individually hand sewn in their New England facility.

THE KURYAKYN RIOT COLLECTION

We caught a glimpse of these new foot pegs from Kuryakyn and thought we would share them with you all. The Riot collection features authentic motocross styling for steadfast stability, traction, and control to run wild on or off-road. We have to admit, off road has been more of an interest for us lately.

The traditional MX-styled designs deliver the essential support aggressive riders need to rip up the streets, tracks or trails. Constructed from durable single aluminum castings with a serrated-tooth top surface for surefooted grip and rugged style, with specially coated bead-blasted satin silver or satin black textured finishes that are extremely resilient.

Riot Footpegs and Mini Boards accept model-specific splined adapters (sold separately) for precise angle adjustment on Harley-Davidson®, Indian®, Victory® and a wide range of metric models. The Mini boards also offer forward, center or rear positioning of the adapters for ideal placement. Riot Shift Pegs are available in two applications as a direct replacement for all H-D shift levers, the shift peg on Indian big twins, as well as the shift and brake peg locations on Indian Scouts and select Victory models including the Octane.

Coming soon to the Riot collection are direct-replacement H-D driver floorboards, as well as grips for dual-cable or fly-by-wire H-D models, plus universal 7/8″ and 1″ handlebars for Indian Scouts, Victory Octanes, select metric models and Can-Am Spyders.

LOWER TRIPLE TREE WIND DEFLECTORS FOR INDIAN

They might not be the sexiest upgrade, but the new Kuryakyn® Lower Triple Tree Wind Deflectors are certainly effective when it comes to improving rider comfort in the cockpit.

Now available for select Indian® and Victory® models, Lower Triple Tree Wind Deflectors redirect wind and water passing through the fork legs downward to reduce noise levels, moisture and turbulent upward airflow between the tank and fairing. The durable stamped steel deflectors mount discreetly to the lower tree beneath the fairing for a clean look that’s hardly noticeable.

There’s a reason why these are a hit with the Harley-Davidson® crowd and continue to be a top seller for Kuryakyn since their introduction in 2009—because they flat-out work. Take a look at them here;
