Hot Metal - Diamond Heads And Carbon Fiber Wheels

New Stuff In The Hot Bike Office

Diamond Heads $449

Diamond Heads (the self-proclaimed "kings of bling") use a diamond-cut procedure to spruce up the overall appearance of heads and cylinders. The firm also reckons that the greater surface area this treatment creates helps cooling efficiency (the company even has a patent on it), but we think the real benefit is the gleam it adds to your powerplant. Just about anything you've got with a fin-type surface that's made from aluminum can get the Diamond Head look.

Tp Engineering Scramjetair Cleaner Kit $399.95

Clean up your engine's act with the new air cleaner kit from TP Engineering. The new kit features a machined billet-aluminum backing plate with velocity stack, as well as a chrome die-cast cover with air scoop to aid breathing. All of the kits include a washable filter element, mounting hardware, and breather kit. Air cleaner kits are available for Evo and Twin Cam machines fitted with S&S;, CV, and Mikuni carburetors, and for Delphi fuel-injected motors as well. TP claims it found an extra 5 hp at the rear wheel by replacing the stock backing plate and air cleaner on an '05 Electra Glide with a Scramjet setup without any other modifications.

Envy Cycle Creations Rpgeez Exhaust $699

Tired of those wimpy little stock pipes? Then check out the beefy two-into-one exhaust system from Envy Cycle Creations' Streetwalker exhaust line. Designed for right-side-drive applications, the 1-1/2-inch header pipe immediately steps to 1-7/8 inches, then merges to the whopping 3-inch collector. Don't worry about singeing your short hairs, because the head pipes come with custom-cut heat shields. Shown here is the deep black ceramic-coated pipe with chrome heat shields, but if you like shiny things, you can also get them completely chromed.

Independent Cycle Legend Air Suspension $1,600

The crew from Independent Cycle now offers the company's Legend Air Suspension system for FL, Dyna, and V-Rod applications in a blacked-out powdercoat finish. Featuring Kevlar air-spring technology, the Legend Air system allows you to flip a switch to lift the bike for magic-carpet comfort and clearance-or if you're into the lowrider look, drop it back down to the ground. The shocks' compressed height is 9-1/2 inches, and they fully extend to 13 inches. The system includes an air compressor, solenoid, hardware, and handlebar-mounted switch.

Wicked Image Vendetta Wheel $1,150

We don't really think we have to say much about this new wheel from Wicked Image, because the Vendetta really speaks for itself. Just check out the intricacy of the CNC-machined, 6061 forged billet aluminum. Fresh from the CNC machine, each wheel is hand-polished and triple chrome-plated for that extra mirror-like shine. You can order the Vendetta in any size, and matching brake rotors and pulleys are also available to complete the package.
