Sit down, shut up, hang on
Designed for 2007 and later XL Sportsters, LePera’s new solo Bare Bones captures its sleek styling by being one of the narrowest and thinnest seats on the market—without sacrificing the brand’s attention to craftsmanship. Incorporating only the finest materials, the Bare Bones features LePera’s high-density “Marathon” molded foam foundation and a powder coated steel base plate that is carpeted to provide a friction-free surface between the seat and fender. The model shown is the LFK-006 for bikes with a 3.5-gallon tank. It has a base price of $190. (Another version is available for bikes with a larger tank.) Options are plentiful and include gel inserts, stitching graphics, cover material options, studs and various colored threads.

Make your Eagle scream
Engineered to replace the stock Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle air filter assembly, K&N’s new High Flow Replacement Filter offers less restriction while still maintaining the ultimate in filtration due to its crimped design. And an increased airflow ultimately results in higher horsepower and torquier re­sponse (with no adjustments to fuel management systems required). The large surface area provided by the pleated media also allows for a greater span between service intervals. This K&N High Flow Filter is washable and reusable. With an MSRP of $69, it comes pre-oiled and ready for installation.

A bag for all seasons
Adventure touring just got a little easier with the introduction of the new Ulysses Handlebar Bag by Buell Accessories. Fabricated from 600 denier, fade-resistant polyester, the Handlebar Bag easily attaches to the bike’s handlebar crossbrace using Velcro straps and provides a convenient storage compartment for small items. Plus the full-length zipper allows quick access without having to “fish around” for that elusive cell phone, iPod or Spam sandwich. A mesh pocket on the front allows for an additional cache of items. The Bag has a retail price of $24.95 and fits 2006 and later XB12X and 2008 and later XB12XT models.

Special glasses not required
The team over at Forge-Tec Motorcycle Wheels and Accessories has recently added another shiny goodie to their catalog, a 3-D wheel called The Engage. It is available in all popular sizes (from 16″–23″) and a variety of applications (from 1984–2008). Although this unit has the appearance of being riveted together, it is actually a one-piece, rotary forged product constructed of virgin aircraft-grade T-6061 aluminum. Four finishes are available for The Engage: polished, black powder coated, chromed and the Midnight Series, a two-tone black anodized finish combined with classic machined highlights. Matching rotors and pulleys are also available. If ordered, they come attached and torqued to OEM specifications.

Clean and cool
Feeling neglected because all the latest motorcycle innovations are based around six gears and you’re still limping along with a dinosaur four-speed tranny? Then check out Crime Scene Chopper’s Chillin’ Oil Filter/Cooler. This beauty will update your Pan or Shovelhead to a quality Fram spin-on filtering system, and the radial fins on the bracket are designed to draw the heat from your oil (and it looks great while doing it). Retailing for $179, the Chillin’ Filter/Cooler is made in the U.S.A. from 6061 aluminum and fits only manual-start bikes (kickers rule). The Fram element is available at any auto parts store, which makes things even simpler.
