  • Bassani Sweeper Exhaust for Softails?

    Q: 

    I see that Bassani offers the Sweeper Exhaust for Softails in black. The Bassani Part number is SFT-336B. I was wondering if this exhaust system was available through J&P Cycles.

    A: 

    Yes, we have added part number SFT-336B Snake Charmer Black Exhaust System for 86-06 FXST to our system.  They are now available to order. 

  • Dunlop D404 Tires not for Touring models?

    Q: 

    You claim that the Dunlop D404 is not suitable for Harley Davidson Touring models. My question to you is, why not?  Please get back to me on this as I am getting ready to order some new tires. Thank you.

    A: 

    The D404's can be used on the Sportsters.  Their load rating is not great enough for use on the Big Twin Harley models. If you put these on a Touring bike you would not get many miles out of them.

  • 2007 V-Star 1100 Classic Turn Signal Brackets?

    Q: 

    Can you please send me pictures of all the different types of front turn signal brackets for a 2007 V-Star 1100 Classic?  I am particularly interested in part numbers ZZ31172, ZZ31176, and ZZ31062.  If you could show me pics of what they look like on the bike I will be buying one of them.

    A: 

    The first two part numbers must be new items because they have not yet been added to the website.  The only pictures we have of these items at this time are the ones you are seeing in the catalog.  The third part number is for the Headwinds brackets that allow you to mount bullet turn signals to the bottom of your headlight mount so they are tucked in low on either side of the headlight.  We've used them on a couple of springers and they're real nice. I checked the manufacturer's website to see if they have a picture of them on a bike but they show the same picture we have. Hopefully you can visualize these from my description.

  • Memphis Shades Lowers Hardware Kit?

    Q: 

    I have a question about the Memphis Shades Lowers Hardware Kit, part number 750-352.  In the 2007 Metric Catalog, the part number has an asterisk and states "Note: For mounting the Memphis Shades Lowers when a Memphis Shades Windshield is not being used."  Does this mean that if I order the Memphis Shades windshield 750-219 and mounting kit ZZ75088, I don't need kit 750-352 to mount the lowers?  Does it mean that the lowers won't fit on my bike with the windshield installed?

    A: 

    According to Memphis Shades, their lowers fit with their windshields. You will need part number 750-352 to mount the lowers and ZZ75088 to mount the windshield.
