Performance Times

    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...

    Although the King of the Baggers championship was only three races this year, each was action-packed, unpredictable, and absolutely record-setting. Our own Mission Foods/S&S Indian Challenger piloted by Tyler O'Hara has gone from winning to DNF (Did Not Finish). Much of the grid is fighting...

    Race two of the 2021 King of the Baggers series happened to fall conveniently in our backyard. A few hours East in scenic Elkhart Lake. The Road America facility has stood as a premier motorsports facility since the mid-fifties and remains one of the best in the US. This storied racing facility...

    The latest out of the S&S house of horsepower is an all Stainless Steel version of our popular SuperStreet exhaust for the Softail® platform. Combining the stainless header with stainless shields and muffler make for a great look without the punishment of melting boots most of the other stainless...

    Stealth air cleaner kits have been a solid performance addition for the v-twin market since their launch in 2012 and each year we add a few more to the collection. The Air Stinger takes the existing high flow Stealth air cleaner and replaces the air smoothing stinger with a similarly shaped filter...

    S&S has been building big bore kits since the 60s and has it down to an absolute science. Their latest efforts are aimed at the Milwaukee Eight® platform (2017 and newer big twins) and opens up a whole new level of performance for these engines. Combining a new design forged piston with their 4.25”...

    Our first track day was now scheduled for early September at the Blackhawk Farms in Beloit Illinois and we had chosen Tyler O’Hara as our rider for his experience with the XR series as well as an incredibly diverse racing resume. The pieces were coming together and flew Tyler into Wisconsin for the...

    Baggers at Laguna Seca? Monster touring machines lumbering through the hallowed curves of California’s most famous race track? The pundits would dub it as blasphemy and the purists took to their keyboards to express their utter dismay. If there had been an internet in the early days of NASCAR,...

    Now available, a 50-state legal version of our popular 475 cam for M8 touring machines. Bolt-in cam pulls over 100 Horsepower and 109 lb-ft of torque and now includes a Powervision PV3 tuner with built-in tunes allowing for a simple set up without having to put the bike on a Dyno! To make it even...

    The M8 engine is a powerhouse, but a low idle combined with a plugged up exhaust conspire to mute the true sounds of freedom this machine was designed to roar. We get that and created the GNX slip-ons with one thing in mind and that’s belting out the flag-waving, eagle flying song of the American...

    We heard S&S Cycle this one under wraps for a hot minute and are finally ready to set it free. The S&S R&D team took their proven 2:1 SuperStreet exhaust internals and finally ported them over to the Sportster platform. None of the shorty system fluff that kills the power, they are here for the...

    Originally conceived by S&S founder George Smith, the Classic Two Throat carb and matched air cleaner served as a performance milestone in the v-twin space for over a decade. Now long gone, they are still a hot commodity for in-the-know chopper builders and have inspired the latest air cleaner from...

    Complete Big Bore and Cam Chest in One Kit!

    S&S Cycle’s El Dorado performance exhaust system is a 50 state legal high flow exhaust designed around our 4.5” Mufflers and stainless steel Header. Street legal fitment for 2017-2019 Harley-Davidson® M8 powered touring models. The El Dorado is a complete system that includes Power Tune headers and...

    Until recently, performance exhaust and 50 state legal have been mutually exclusive features forcing a rider to choose between making power and making sure factory warranties were not impacted. We say those days are behind us. Welcome to the new world order of high performance that marries a real...
