Performance Times

    We were back again in St. Paul, Minnesota for a weekend of fun at the second annual War of the Twins indoor flattrack race as well as the thirty-second annual Dennis Kirk Donnie Smith Bike Show the following day. Here is a little recap of some of the bar banging action and custom bike goodness!

    Every year, the crew here at S&S takes the short drive across the state to Milwaukee for one of our favorite shows, the Mama Tried Motorcycle Show and Flat Out Friday. This year we had a little more weather than usual, but nothing will stop us from checking out some of the best custom...

    Arguably the most recognized big twin air cleaner on the planet, the classic Teardrop just got better!  Combining the S&S Cycle High-Flow Stealth air cleaner platform (up to 6hp gain on M8!) with the iconic Teardrop cover, S&S Cycle has created the very best of both worlds for the 1999-2019...

    We love power, raw unadulterated thumping, makes your heart skip a beat kind of power and that’s the very stuff we do best. Our latest for the Milwaukee Eight® powered Harley-Davidson® models is certain proof of this obsession. Bolt in 124 Cubic Inch (that’s over 2000cc for you metric folks) Big...

    S&S doesn’t build anything unless it makes power and the SuperStreet does exactly that with 86hp (+15%) and 110 lb./ft. Torque (+10%) out of the new generation of M8 Softail® models. Add to that, the perfect length and angle, clearing bags, passenger pegs and forwards, plus an adjustable exhaust...

    Born Free Motorcycle Show has grown to epic proportions - from a simple chopper show in a parking lot in sunny Southern California, to a big bash in the hills of Trabuco Canyon. 

    Kevin Dunworth is a bike builder, formerly known as Loaded Gun Customs. Kevin came to us and said he wanted "stupid power" in his latest build, a tracker that started life as a 1992 H-D® Sportster®. Well, we delivered, and he's got a "stupid fast" Sporty now! Take a look at this full custom...

    Inspired by our total domination in American Flat Track exhaust, S&S Cycle has created a tunable two into two package for the HD® Fat Bob®. Taking performance exhaust to the next level by combining a two into two format with a hidden crossover, the new Grand National system is designed for pure,...

    For some of us, in the Midwest and East Coast, the changing colors and falling leaves of Autumn signal one thing - that it’s almost time to put away the bike for the winter. “But I ride ALL winter!” some of you in warm climates say - we would too, if it weren’t for the treacherous combination of...

    Always on top of performance and reliability, S&S Cycle recently launched their complete Cam Chest Kits designed specifically to update the M8 engines with the latest in pump, plate and cam technology. We've put together sixteen unique kits designed to match your bike, performance demands and...

    We have created the next level in high performance bagger exhaust! Merging a full flow stainless header into a highly engineered collector and culminating in a 4.5” muffler, the new Sidewinder represents the perfect combination of style and power. Includes our removable dB reducer baffle...

    Classic lines and a legacy that dates back to 1975, the S&S Cycle Teardrop Air Cleaner has done time on the drag strip, the salt flats, and countless other race disciplines as well as highlighting some of the premier customs in our space. Hard to imagine it could be made better, but we have and...

    David works in our Race Department - getting to handle some of the biggest, fastest and best engines to come out of S&S. No, seriously - the pro stock engines we produce are 160 cubic inches!!

    We got the chance to meet Jason Ochoa at this year's Fuel Cleveland show - after admiring his build on Instagram, it was a thrill to finally see it in person. Understated from afar, with dark features like the springer, and deep red paint, but incredibly detailed up close. The KN engine retains...

    The S&S Winter Power Package is the ideal combination of performance and savings, designed to transform the M8 or HD® big twin without breaking the bank. For the latest generation machines (2017-19 M8 models), S&S is packaging our brand new 124” bolt in big bore kit with a 550 cam, cam plate and...

    Inspired by their total domination in American Flat Track and designed specifically for the Hooligan class racer, S&S Cycle’s latest is a purpose built, competition only exhaust system that not only looks the part, but makes the power. Stainless steel factory style finish, Aluminum Grand...

    How does a company like S&S Cycle celebrate six decades in business? With a limited edition anniversary engine, of course! “We’ve always wanted to do a brushed nickel finish, but realized it would be tough to do in quantity, so we’re only building 60 of these and will never make them again”,...

    S&S Cycle has been on the gas for six decades, with the last handful of years we've focused substantial effort on high performance exhaust systems. Our popular Grand National muffler line recently grew to include the latest generation of HD® Softail® models and we're now adding a lower dollar...
