Ohlins FKA-100 Cartridge Kits for Adventure Bikes
Ohlins is now offering FKA-100 Cartridge Kits for various model Adventure and dual-sport motorcycles. Built for varying terrain and long rides the FKA-100 Cartridge Kits source NIX technology, which positions rebound damping adjustability in one fork leg and compression in the other. Preload adjustability is available on both legs and a newly developed hydraulic stop prevents hard bottoming. The FKA-100 Kits are fully serviceable and rebuild-able. Currently kits are available for the BMW F800GS, Triumph Tiger 800 and 800XC as well as the base-model Ducati Multistrada. Ohlins plans to roll out kits for more machines throughout the 2014 season.

Two Brothers Racing M7 V.A.L.E. Exhaust for RZR XP1000
MSRP: $699.98
The Two Brothers Racing M7 V.A.L.E. Exhaust for Polaris’ 2014 RZR XP1000 will provide more power to an already burly machine. The Stainless Steel slip-on system comes with a removable U.S. Forestry Service-approved spark arrestor to keep the XP1000 compliant with regulations on trail rides, but is said to leave the bump in horsepower intact. It also adds a pretty mean growl to the exhaust note of the XP. The M7 even made its way onto MotoUSA’s RZR XP1000 project UTV.

Triumph T-Shirts
Johnson Motors T-shirt MSRP: $49.99
UHL Studios T-shirt: MSRP: $47.99
Mods vs. Rockers T-shirt MSRP: $37.99
Triumph has added some new items to its apparel line to celebrate partnerships with Johnson Motors, UHL Studios and Mods vs. Rockers Chicago. Triumph and Johnson Motors have paired many times before, notably during the filming of movies such as “The Wild One,” “The Great Escape,” and “Dirty Harry.” Each Johnson Motors T-shirt comes in a replica Cycle Bath tin, much like those Johnson Motors supplied to Triumph dealers in the 1950s. The “UHL Live Fast” T-shirts were designed by artists David Uhl and Danial James and feature skull and piston graphics. The Mods vs. Rockers T-shirt has been made in partnership with Mods vs. Rockers Chicago, which is the largest vintage motorcycle and scooter rally in the USA. All three T-shirts are made in the USA.

Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps
MSRP: Grey 16”: $15.00
Orange 20”: $17.00
Red 26”: $19.00
The Giant Loop Pronghorn Straps are made of stretch polyurethane, feature quick connectors and are nearly unbreakable. They’re sold in packages of two, but for really big loads multiple straps can be chained together as well. They feature Giant Loop’s cow skull graphic and come with the design mantra, “Go Light. Go Fast. Go Far.”

Ride Engineering KTM Triple Clamps
MSRP: 529.90
Used by KTM’s Factory off-road team and Canada’s Factory Motocross Team in 19 and 20.5mm offsets, the Ride Engineering KTM Triple Clamps are geared to take handling to the next level. Vibration and hand fatigue are said to be reduced thanks to new rubber mounted top-clamps while the addition of cone pockets make the upper clamp more ridged. Clamps are available for 2013 and 2014 models and feature polyurethane cones. A One-Piece Bar Mount is sold separately for motocross applications. 

MSRP: $29.99
Sometimes accidents happen, and in those cases it’s good to be prepared. The RideID Wrist ID Elite is a silicone band with watch-style latch that has all pertinent information in the event of an emergency. You can have phone numbers, insurance information, name, address, and other info easily available for emergency responders. There are a number of styles and colors available.
