Performance Times

    As passionate riders and dedicated motorcycle part manufacturers, we understand the importance of maximizing your bike's performance and unleashing its full potential on the road or track. One of the most significant upgrades you can make to your motorcycle's engine is installing a high-performance...

    There’s nothing quite like the deep rumble of your motorcycle as soon as you kick it to life and the growl as you open the throttle to accelerate down the open highway. Unfortunately, most stock exhaust systems just don’t have the power or sound quality that many riders are looking for. The good...

    Most motorcycle rallies around the country feature incredible bike shows, concerts, food, group rides, and other events that cater specifically to motorcycle fans. But nothing compares to the sense of community and camaraderie you’ll experience when attending one of these events. It’s a chance to...

    Once the temperatures drop and frost starts to creep in, that’s a good sign that it’s time to store your bike for the winter. But don’t just park it in your garage and call it a day: you should winterize your motorcycle. Winterizing your bike involves a lot more than just stowing it away. In this...

    In today's episode, the S&S guys drop a little Wisconsin on California's Born Free, talk spicy racing moves, the best engine for your older bike, and the show says goodbye to Dave as he rides off into the sunset.

    What about the US riders? Everyone relax! Our latest release for the European market is not an exclusive, we already build a very slick slip-on for the US market Nightsters! What makes this one special is a unique baffle that complies with more stringent ECE sound standards. Both versions of this...

    In today's episode, Jon & Dave bum out Corvettes and Miatas in an S&S turbocharged KRX1000, Jon leaks new parts, and the S&S crew preps for King of the Baggers racing at Road America. Plus, a discount code that is only available to Podcast listeners like you!
    Today's episode has Jon and Dave talk backing in baggers, the Build, Train, Race battle, and their warped desire to autocross a turbo'd KRX1000 as well as a visit from Cycle Source's Chris and Heather and another round of stump the S&S guy.
    Full house in episode 25 of the Performance Times as Jon and Dave drag in media guys Cody and Matt to talk Mama Tried, Daytona, stunts gone bad, and some of the most epic bagger racing to date (yes, they did over 180 mph!). They also launch a Strider program at a local school, and Dave plans...

    Winter is rough for motorcycle people. We push the riding season until we can’t feel our fingers and then reluctantly park our bikes, hook up battery tenders, and stare lovingly at them before turning away with a tear in our eyes. The next several months are often a fever dream of cold temps, snow,...

    Episode 24 features Jon, Cody and Dave talking smack about eachothers 100 Day Sportster Throwdown builds, big jugs for CVO guys, a rundown of the upcoming King of the Baggers revenge tour and some hard questions about 1983 Goldwings. 
    Performance Times is back, Dave is out with some sort of 25th Anniversary/vow renewal excuse. We get caught up on the 100 Day Sportster Throwdown, upcoming events, new parts, and answer some hard-hitting questions from you guys!

    If you have not already, get caught up with the S&S 100 Day Sportster Throwdown here: https://info.sscycle.com/performance-times/100-day-sportster-throwdown. This will make a lot more sense if you do. 

    So here’s the premise, it’s cold and snowy in the fly-over states where S&S Cycle is located, so...

    In Episode 22 of the Performance Times Podcast, the S&S crew leaks new products, covers upcoming events, and talks smack about each other's 100 Day Sportster Throwdown builds. 

    Winter is rough for motorcycle enthusiasts, particularly for those of us in the snowy states. Fuel stabilizers and battery tenders are the death knell of the riding season, but not necessarily the end of the fun. For many of us here at S&S, winter is “build season,” time to refresh, tune up, and in...

    Jon and Dave bring in Matty to talk Bikes, Blue and BBQs, crashing Dynas, and an unnatural love for Irons. Jon announces the 100-Day Sportster Throwdown, calls out Dave and video guy Cody, and Dave fixates on Autocrossing a KRX1000. Somewhere in there, they launch the Winter Power Package...

    The S&S Performance Times returns after a semi-short sabbatical. Episode number twenty covers the wind-down of the 2022 race season, Jon's battle with Covid, really big big bore kits, and possibly a winter bike build throwdown as well as autocrossing a turbo KRX. Stay tuned for more! 

    We kind of fell in love with the KRX when it was originally launched in 2020. One of the most durable and sorted 1000cc SxS in the space. Massive trailing arms and just about every part of the suspension is on par with the RZR Pro XP, the factory wheel/tire package is solid, and even the stance is...

    Brainerd International Raceway in Northern Minnesota is no stranger to top-level racing, with a drag strip, two road courses, and even a jet ski lake tucked into the facility. What is new to BIR this year was King of the Baggers, arguably the biggest, wildest, two-wheeled race series in recent...

    What is Build Train Race? Why is S&S involved? Are the racers really all girls?

    These are just some of the questions we’ve been asked regarding our involvement in the BTR program. The brainchild of Royal Enfield’s US marketing guru, Bree Poland, the race series is far more than, well, a race...
