Smoke a Gold Wing

   For many many moons now, owners of the famed Gold Wing and it’s recent “Custom” Step-Child The F6B, have not had a way to come to The Dark Side. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has found a manufacturer that has created a Smoke Accessory Package that lets you create the perfect Gold Wing F6B. A Limited Edition offering of 9 accessories that accentuate the F6B’s dark lines by turning the standard chrome finish into a Smoke finish.

Smoke-Kit-BBP-SPL52816SK1   The unique dark plated finish gives an illusive feeling to the chrome that adds depth and definition. Depending on the amount of available light, the Smoke look will often take on a chameleon-like effect. Its dark mirror finish is the perfect accent to the F6B and its sinister blacked out design. Smoke is initially available in a dress out package of 9 of what are considered to be the must have pieces for the F6B / GL1800. Only this time they are finished in the illusive Smoke finish:

1) Pair of Smoke Board Covers

2) Pair of Smoke Engine Covers

3) Pair of Smoke LED Saddlebag Accents

4) Pair of Smoke Battery Covers

5) Pair of Smoke Frame Covers

6) Pair of Smoke Garnish Accents

7) Pair of Smoke Fender Fillers

8) Smoke Front Fender Extension

9) Smoke LED Rear Fender Accent

Smoke-Kit-BBP-SPL52816SK2    With the F6B starting out as a great “Dark”  platform, it is no surprise someone has come up with a package to finish what the factory started.  For those of you that are still on the fence, there is no time to dawdle. This is a Limited Edition Smoke Dress Package and is expected to be available in limited quantities. For those GL1800 owners (2012 and newer) the Smoke Accessory Group for the F6B also fits your motorcycle. With Christmas quickly approaching this would make the perfect for Dad and because of its limited quantity, not everyone will have it. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) is always looking to bring you the latest in motorcycle accessories so you can have a bike like no other.

Protecting Our Hands is an Important Part of Riding

   We all know the most vulnerable part of the body for those of us that ride motorcycles without fairings is without a doubt our hands. So much of the ride relies on our hands, as every aspect of it is affected by them. If our hands are cold it affects us and the ride. We know if they get hit by an airborne object it affects us. Is there a solution out there other than a fairing? There is and K and G Cycles (www.kandgcyclyes.com) is happy to pass it on to you. Wing Shield Hand Guards and Desert Digits. Hand protectors for almost every bike out there.

Desert Digits DD1000    Warm and dry equals comfortable travels! That’s exactly what Desert Digits Hand Protectors from Leader Motorcycle delivers. Desert Digits Hand Protectors are mini motorcycle fairings for your hands that attach to the motorcycles handlebars. The unique Ultra-Swivel feature allows you to optimally position them for perfect protection from the elements.  Desert Digits Hand Protectors mount to any round bar 1″ to 1.25″ in diameter. Through a patent pending design Leaders “Ultra Swivel” guards offer unlimited rotational capability. Competitors designs provide only limited rotation or only one or two plane angling. Translation – you can adjust the Desert Digits exactly where it you want them. The problem with traditional wind deflectors is that air and rain hits the surface of the deflector, bounces off it, and continues around the plate. The Result: cold, wet hands! The Desert Digits patent-pending convex shape solves this problem by actually funneling the air to the outside of the riders hands via the windshield and the Desert Digits. In addition the Desert Digits hand protectors elongated shape (6″ x 13″) provides more coverage for your hands and wrists.

Let’s face it, looks matter – but so does quality. So the Desert Digits hand protectors were manufactured with BOTH in mind. Using rugged marine-grade vinyl that looks like leather and stainless steel and chrome plated mounting hardware, it doesn’t get much better than this. Built with simplicity in mind, the Desert Digits base bracket installs in minutes with no special tools. Continuing on that idea, the cover itself is easily removed when not in use and can be stored in a saddlebag or other location. You do not have to keep them on all the time.

wingshield   Up next is Wing Shields from Brukus Motorcycle Parts. These hand guards address all of the concerns too. Wing Shields are designed to protect your hands from stones, bugs, and other road debris, as well as the cold. Made of tough Lexan polycarbonate, they are virtually unbreakable! One of the toughest transparent materials available today, Lexan is about 300 times stronger than single-strength glass, is weather-resistant, yet remains light weight! Translation – you get lightweight, transparent, virtually unbreakable protection for your hands while traveling on your motorcycle. Sure they could have stopped after giving you unmatched protection, but Brukus stepped up and shaped them to curve over the hand grips on your ride. The shape and curve gives you an aerodynamic advantage that allows the wind to flow smoothly past your hands. Wing Shields are approximately 5″ at their widest point and approximately 12″ in length. Installation is simple, they attach to your bike quickly and easily to the mirror mounts. All the necessary hardware is included and consists of either Stainless Steel or Aluminum. This should give you years of trouble free service.

Finding Your Comfort Zone with a Rider Backrest

Let’s face it, we all know the benefits of riding with a backrest, but hate the additional clunky brackets. Not to mention the loss of leg room for the passenger. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has stumbled upon a solution that will have you ordering one before you finish reading this.

F6B BBP-52-832Until now if we wanted a Rider Backrest for our Honda F6B Gold Wing, we had to engineer a solution that would allow the use of something not intended for it. Big Bike Parts has released a new “Made in the USA” Smart Mount through the seat backrest and is now available for the F6B Gold Wing. This new backrest attaches through the seat and only the backrest pad and support arm sit above the surface of the driver’s seat. This innovative design eliminates all side mounting brackets and the backrest hoop, delivering a clean look and more leg room for the rear passenger. This new system utilizes Big Bike Parts copyrighted pad hinge and adjustable tongue, thus allowing the rider to take full advantage of the 1″ range of adjustment on the pad, as well as pivoting forward or back, allowing you to stretch while riding. This kit comes with a complete set of  instructions and all the required mounting hardware. The backrest also includes a handy removable storage pouch on the backside for your small valuables.

The more miles we rack up, the more we realize that increased comfort is never a bad quest, and adding a rider backrest certainly increases comfort, but until now, came with sacrificing passenger space. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) is proud to offer the new design Rider Backrest from Big Bike Parts that says “Goodbye” to the external bones and “Hello” all to the sleek lines on the Honda F6Bs.

Tour Master brings you The Best Riding Gear

   When we first start riding, we all do the same thing. Put on our “coolest” jeans, a wicked temperature appropriate shirt or jacket, and ride. As we rack up the miles, we begin to realize having actual riding gear can make the journeys more enjoyable. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) carries a huge selection of riding gear, but today I want to focus on the Tour Master Flex line of gear. Considered to be some of the most comfortable riding gear out there.

Just like the Flex Jacket, the pants have been designed to give you the utmost in comfort, protection, fit, style, and wear. Most riders will wear a riding jacket but few will wear riding pants. Many see it as an image issue, yet others feel it will increase body temps while riding. Tour Master has tackled these concerns and more with the Flex Pant. A versatile riding pant suited for year round travel aimed at delivering the best riding experience possible. Check out the details of the only riding pants you will need.

comp-chart We are pleased to carry the 1325 WATT charging system upgrade for the 1988 through 1999 HONDA GL1500 Gold Wing motorcycles (1988 models need to use dowel pins and mounting bolts from 1989 and later model). This system is designed to exceed new motorcycle specs. The Compu-Fire charging system consists of the HD-1325 Alternator and a GEN III maintenance free battery.

Compu-Fire 90 Amp Alternator

The alternator is the latest third Generation design featuring temperature compensated voltage regulation for optimum battery performance, matched voltage output for modern maintenance free batteries, and all components are brand new (Not Re-Manufactured).

Compu-Fire Sealed Battery

The Compu-Fire sealed battery is maintenance free, operates at an average of 0.5 to 0.75 volts higher than the original and provides 40 extra cold cranking amps. Starting is now crisper, ignition is stronger and lights are brighter. Goldwing riders can now operate high power accessories with complete peace of mind and eliminate carrying extra batteries!

Maintenance Free

Absorbed Glass Mat (AGM) Technology is an advanced battery design used in Maintenance Free Batteries that eliminates water loss. Once it’s filled with acid the battery is permanently sealed – so you’ll never need to fill it with water or check the acid level.

Long Life

Because of its lead calcium design, the AGM battery will hold its specific gravity more than three times longer than conventional lead antimony types. This means much longer periods between charges when the battery is used in a standby mode, like winter storage. And to remain factory-fresh the AGM battery is shipped dry along with its own pack of high-gravity acid that’s added at the time of installation. Once filled with acid from its special packs, the AGM battery is virtually maintenance free. It’s totally sealed and all of the acid is absorbed in the special plates and separators, so there is no need to worry about acid leaks on valuable vehicle parts and accessories.

  • 150 Amp Alternator – The Highest Output available for Honda GL 1800′s
  • Industry leading Temperature compensated Voltage regulation

Not only will you decrease the demand on your electrical system, you will increase your charging system output, your regulation voltage, and your max amperage. All this combines for a more electrically reliable motorcycle that will keep you visible and show the world what you are made of.

Heated Seats Aren’t just for Autos Anymore

   Have you been looking to upgrade your standard motorcycle seat, to a heated motorcycle seat but don’t have the extra cash?  If you are able to run a staple gun, you can install Heat Demon Seat Warmers for much less than purchasing a new heated seat from your local dealer. K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) has just what you need, and our very own Operations Manager chronicled the install for you.

   When the temperature drops, are you going to go home, or will you keep riding? Put a little heat in your seat and enjoy the riding season long after most other riders have called it quits. Heat Demon Motorcycle Seat Heaters offer an innovative warm seat experience for the riders who just refuse to quit. The universal fit carbon fiber seat heaters install easily on any bike, providing comfort and warmth for riders of all bikes.

    For reference, all photos will be used while installing the Heat Demon’s on a 2008 Harley-Davidson Ultra Classic motorcycle.

Note: Heater is designed to be installed beneath the vinyl/leather cover of the seat.

Heat Demon Specifications:

    • 20 Watt carbon fiber heating element

    • Increases riding safety and comfort

• Ultra thin and flexible

• Fast warm-up

• Easy to install

Tools that you will need for this installation :

•  Small tipped flat screw driver

•  Long nosed pliers

•  Staple Gun

•  3/8” Drill Bit

•  13/16” Drill Bit

•  Razor blade

•  Black sharpie

Additional Items you may want to purchase:

• 1 – Two wire wiring harness that have quick disconnects

• Inline fuse

Step 1:staple-pulling  To get started you will need to remove your motorcycle seat.  I would recommend that you connect the wiring harness to the battery first so that you can test the Heat Demons prior to installation.   Your Heat Demon’s should have come with installation instructions, and the wiring diagram for the seat heaters.  You can see Step 10 for wiring steps.  I have also included the wiring diagram below in Step 10 for your over view of the wiring layout.

Step 2: Turn the motorcycle seat over to start the staple removal process.  It is best not to remove all of the staples at one time.  Using a small tipped flat screw driver, wedge it under the staples and slowly apply pressure.  This should allow you to ease the staple from the seat and the leather.  If you need additional help once the staple has been pulled halfway from the seat use long nosed pliers to complete the removal from the seat.  I do not recommend only using the long nosed pliers, as this may cause damage to the leather.

Step 3:large seat foam Now that you have removed the staples from the leather/Vinyl on the front of the seat, you should then be able to flip the seat over in the upright position and pull the leather back towards the backside of the seat.(See the examples below.) This should expose the foam of the seat.  Once you have the foam exposed look it over to ensure there are no defects or problems with the foam.  Also if the foam has a clear plastic liner between it and the leather, remove the plastic from the seat.

Step 4: To insure that you have 100% working heaters prior to full installation I recommend that you test these heaters first prior to mounting them to the foam of the seat.  It is far better to discover you have a problem with the heaters now, then discover there is problem after you have already reassembled the seat.

Step 5: Once you know the heat pad does heat up, it is now time to install it on to the foam seat. You now need to consider where you want to mount the heat pad, as well as how you are planning on routing the wires. This is important so they are not visible once you place the leather seat cover back over the top of the foam.  Once you’ve selected the route you want to run the wiring, slowly remove the 3M sticker off the back of the heat pad.  Once the backing has been removed, place the heat pad (sticky side down) in the area that you would like to have heated.   Make sure to press down on the heater to insure good adhesion between the seat and the seat heater.  Note: A thin layer of foam may be placed over the top of the heater to reduce the visibility of the heater through the seat cover.  Make sure to route the wires for the heat pad to the bottom side of the seat.

Note: Removing the foam and drilling a small hole through the bottom of the seat may make installation easier.

Once the wires have bdouble-heateen routed so they will not show once the leather is placed back into position, you will need to ensure that the heat pad is flat against the foam.  Next pull the leather cover back down into position, covering the seat foam. Once the leather has been pulled tight against the foam, this would be a good time to install 4-5 staples into the front section of the leather on the seat. However you do not want to put any staples within 6 inches of the area where you plan on installing the rocker switches.

Now that the front section of the seat is complete, it is time to prepare to insert the heaters for the passenger section of the seat.  If you do not wish to install passenger heat pads, please go to Step 7:

Step 6: Next turn the seat over, and remove the staples for the passenger section of the seat. Again, I would suggest removing these staples with a flathead screw driver, and if needed use a pair of long nose pliers.

After you have removed all of the old staples from the seat, you now need to pull the leather seat cover back to expose the foam for the passenger seat.   If this section of the seat has a thin piece of clear plastic, I recommend removing the plastic to only leave the foam section of the seat showing.

Step 7: Once you know that the heat pad does heat up it’s time to install the Heat Demon for the passenger section of your seat.  Making sure the foam on the seat is clean of dirt.  Now determine where the passenger normally sits on the seat, as well a route for the wires from the heating element through the seat to the bottom side of the finished seat. Again, it is best to conceal the wire so it doesn’t show once you place the leather of the seat back over it.  This will eliminate any visible creases from the wire.  Once you’ve selected the route you want to run the wiring, slowly remove the 3M sticker from the back of the heat pad. Once the backing has been removed, place the heat pad (sticky side down) in the area that you would like to have heated. Route the wires for the heat pad to the bottom side of the seat.

Once you are satisfied with the positioning of wires and heaters, pull the leather back into place.  At this stage you do not want to install any more staples until the remaining steps completed.

Step 8:switch marking You are now ready to prepare the foam and cut the hole in the foam that will house the control switches for the Heat Demons. The standard position for motorcycle heated seat switches is normally on the left side, or port side of the motorcycle seat. For myself I found the easiest way mark the area to be cut, was to place the switch in the desired area and with a sharpie marker draw a line around the outside of the switch. This provided me a good reference point to use during the cutting process of the foam.

Step 9:drilling photos Now that you have the area marked where you want to mount the switch, it is time to cut the hole out of the seat foam. Take a sharp razor knife to cut out the holes, I would suggest cutting the hole slightly smaller than the inside of the circle you’ve marked for the switches. This way it will fit snug in the hole and it will not slide out easily. You can always remove a little more foam if you’ve not cut out enough.

After confirming the switch fits securely in the newly cut holes, it is time to make the hole in the leather. Once you have the leather pulled back over the foam, you should be able to rub your finger over the hole for the switch. This should allow you to see an outline of the area. I found by taking a black sharpie and placing a dot in the center of the hole to use as a guide, I know where to begin to cut through the leather for the seat.

Once you have selected the best location for the seat switches, we will now need to drill a hole for each switch.  I first used a 3/8” drill bit for a small pilot hole. The purpose of this hole is to route the wires through the foam to feed the switch, and through the metal or plastic seat pan.  After the pilot hole has been drilled you now need to drill the actual hole for the switch, you will need a 13/16” drill bit.  Prior to drilling the 13/16” hole, you need to make sure to have a small gap between the two switches. It is recommended there be at least ½” between the final cut outs. Unless you follow this suggestion, the two holes will be one large opening and will not allow the switches to have a secure mount..

Once you have the hole(s) cut, it’s time to install the switches and hook up the wires.  Just make sure to follow the wiring diagram provided by the manufacturer.  As well I have provided a wiring diagram in Step 10 for your reference.

Step 10:switches We now need to connect the wire harness to the battery. If you have already installed the wiring harness from the previous instructions, then skip this section.

For added protection, I would suggest an inline fuse for the + positive (red) side of the battery.  Place a ring terminal end on the side of your inline fuse that will be mounted to the positive post of the battery.  For the other end of the inline fuse I would suggest a butt splice, or solder and heat shrink the ends together .

Next on the black negative wire, place another ring terminal end on one side, and a butt splice on the other, that will connect to the black wire on your wire harness.  Once you have both wires completed, connect them to the motorcycle’s battery. Make sure you do not have the harness connected to the motorcycle seat at this time.

*Now that the wire harness is cowiring diagramnnected to the battery, this would be a great opportunity to verify that all other connections for the seat are working properly.  Place the seat on your motorcycle, and plug it into the harness and test to make sure that both switches are turning the Heat Demons on and off.

Once you know the heater(s) are working, remove the seat from the motorcycle.  And turn it over and while keeping the leather pulled tight, using a staple gun install the staples to your seat.

   Now that you have installed all of the staples back into the seat, take the seat back to your motorcycle, hook up the harness from the seat to the battery, and mount the seat normally to your motorcycle. Test one last time to verify that both switches and Heat Demons are working properly.

Securing a motorcycle and its contents is not an easy task. One of the most vulnerable aspects of our beloved motorcycles is the saddlebags. With no mounting lock installed from the factory, thieves know if they are successful in removing the bags, the bounty inside could be worth more than the bags themselves. One company, Brukus Motorcycle Parts, available through K and G Cycles(www.kandgcycles.com) offers a product that brings piece of mind to your travels, as well as a solution to stop the thieves. SaddlebagSecure by Brukus makes saddlebag locks that fit hard and soft bags from Victory and Yamaha Motorcycles.

Especially since we all know what we keep in them. Designed by Brukus Motorcycle Parts, SaddlebagSecure prevents this by replacing the Quick Release System and securing your bags to your bike.  One thing you will notice is the difference in how firmly your bags now ride on the motorcycle. This also works to prevent your bags from coming loose and flying off while traveling down the road.

Brukus Motorcycle Parts leads the industry in Accessory Securing Products for your bike! That is why I use SaddlebagSecure on my personal motorcycle, a 2004 Harley Electra Glide Classic. – First in innovative ideas, quality and customer service!

This is a release from the Palmdale Sheriff’s Station in Los Angelos County California:

Palmdale Sheriff Station is warning motorcycle enthusiasts of a rash of thefts involving “Saddlebags.”

Over the past month Palmdale Station has had numerous thefts in which “Motorcycle Saddlebags” have been removed form motorcycles while parked in public areas. Detectives believe the suspects have familiarity with the mounting system of the saddlebags due to the short time frame the motorcycles are left unattended in the parking lots.

Palmdale Station is urging motorcycle owners to safeguard their motorcycle accessories by following these safety tips:

• Always remove the key from your ignition and keep your front fork locked.

• Garage your bike out of plain view whenever possible.

• If you have to park outdoors, do so in well-lit secure areas. Look for an outdoor security camera and park in its view if you can.

• Lock your bike to a stationary object, or to another motorcycle when traveling with others. Use high quality locking devices.

• Consider adding an audible alarm and/or tracking device.

• When parking in public, check your bike frequently.

• Always carry your registration and insurance with you when you ride, but keep your title at home or in another secure place.

Substitute standard mounting hardware for accessories with security bolts or less common mounting systems.

   Palmdale Station is also asking the community to report to the station any suspicious sales of motorcycle accessories at extremely discounted prices or questionable origins. People wishing to provide information about the thefts or possible stolen accessories can contact Lieutenant Kennedy at 661-272-2506. Individuals can also provide information anonymously through “Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
