House of Switches
One essential requirement of a clean bike is the efficient use of space. Jaybrake offers a solution to clean up the bulk of factory switches with its new two- and three-button micro-switch housings, which are machined from billet aluminum and come with micro-switches and 24-inch wire leads. The housings contain an integral throttle clamp for push-in or threaded-style cables. Both right and left switch housings are designed to fill the gap between the master cylinder and hand-grips.

Strong as an Ox
Blue Ox sport carriers are as strong as their animal namesake. The OverBilt SportLoader, the newest addition, provides a simple and effective method for one person to haul a motorcycle while also providing the ability to tow a trailer, camper, or travel trailer. Utilizing a 12-volt motor, the front tire of the motorcycle is clamped into a cradle, and the cradle is then pulled up the channel into the bed of the pickup, with the SportLoader channel behaving something like a teeter-totter. The loader simply pivots on a tube that attaches to the tailgate mounting posts, and when the motorcycle is loaded the SportLoader extensions are removed and stored in the bed of the pickup for travel. No modifications to the pickup bed are required.
