These are precision cut on our CNC machine from 6061 Billet Aluminum.  You have a choice of the Machine Cut Finish, which can be polished to a Mirror Finish, OR choose the Powder Coat Black Finish.

Look at all the pictures...the BEFORE & AFTER pictures show what a difference this easy-to-install kit makes!

Now you can see your Rocker Covers! Without this Kit all that chrome is Hidden!

This is the way the Motor Company is now mounting the M8 Softail Tanks, better line, better cooling, less buffeting. 

Worried about running hot? This Kit Provides Better Air-Flow - Engine Runs Cooler

This is an EASY install - 10 to 20 minutes!


1999-2007 - All sizes can fit (1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, & 3 inch)

2008-Up have a 6 gallon tank and only the 1", 1.5" and sometimes the 2" will fit these years.

Road King ~ Road Glide ~ Street Glide ~ Electra Glide ~ Ultra ~ Tri-Glide ~Freewheeler

The DELUXE Option is ESPECIALLY useful for 2008+ batwing bikes because moving the tank back & lifting the rear of it gives more inner fairing clearance.  Full details on this option are HERE.

What we desinate a 1" Tank Lift is actually 1 1/8" lift, the reason for this is to accommodate machining and hardware fitment.

Because of small variances in how Harley welds stand-offs & tank ears, also because of variances in where the batwing fairing is bolted on, the 1" Tank Lift can be very useful in making sure there is clearance at full turn lock.

Please make sure this mod does not interfere with any components on your bike - like  handlebars, turn signals, custom trees, etc.  You don't want to end up with a dented tank!  Check for clearance before ordering. Checking for clearance not only allows you to insure fitment, it also allows you to see which size will look best with your bike.
We are NOT responsible for any damage done to your bike because of the kit.

It is easy to check for clearance:

1. With bike on kickstand, take the bolt out of the front of your tank.

2. Loosen (do not remove) the bolt(s) at the rear of your tank.

3. Turn your handlebars all the way to the left and raise the tank up your desired lift height to check for clearance issues.

4. Turn your handlebars all the way to the right and raise the tank up your desired lift height to check for clearance issues.

Be careful when lifting your tank, you do not want to hit against something (forks, handlebars, trees, blinkers, etc.) when checking for clearance.

Customer Reviews

Works great Review by Mac
Looks great. Handlebars touch tank at full left or right on my '14 Street Glide. I can finally get to the top of the front cylinder head!

Do you have your tank slid all the way back? What size lift are you running? Might benefit from the 1" Lift Kit. DK Support Team (Posted on 5/14/2019)
Very satisfied Review by Mike
2" lift with the deluxe option. I like the new look and stance of the bike after adding the lift. (Posted on 5/8/2019)
Easy to install and WOW!!!! Review by Jim M
Just installed the 1.5" tank lift on my 06 SG with the deluxe option. It looks awesome!!!! Very glad I did it. Thanks DK! (Posted on 2/22/2019)
The little differences make big visual impact! Review by JOHN
I purchased and installed the 1.5" lift on my 2017 Freewheeler at the same time as the cooling deflector wings and am extremely happy with the results!

Having that little bit extra airspace under the
front of the tank not only helps with cooling (as advertised), but functionally it helps remove some light glare from the subtle difference in angle of the dash and gauge. Plus the 1.5" tastefully shows off the engine just that little bit extra.

Little finicky for installation, but I also recognize I'm pretty much a novice, that is eagerly learning quickly! Simple tools and novice hands can do it, you can too! Purchase a lift kit ASAP! You won't be disappointed! (Posted on 2/21/2019)
lift Review by 5wheels
installed the 1.5 inch with the deluxe my trike. It has cut down on the head buffeting. I also installed the CDWs. It hasn't been above 50 so I can't tell much about the heat yet. But I can tell the air is redirected. (Posted on 12/16/2018)
Tank lift really adds to look and feel of bike (Freewheeler) Review by Ronbo
I’m really pleased with the looks of the 1.5" Tank Lift Kit on my 2017 Freewheeler. I initially installed the lifts to help with the heat but I also really like the way raising the front of the tank gives my Freewheeler just a bit more of the chopper look (high front end, low back end) as well as showing off more of the new 107 engine. Also, when I first sat on the bike I immediately noticed that the higher tank made me feel like I was more of a part of the bike vs just setting on top of the bike, especially when using the highway pegs. (I’m 6 ft with long legs)

Installation (using the towel method) was a breeze even though I made the poor choice of filling my 6 gallon tank just prior to doing the mod which really added a lot of extra weight to the tank.. FYI... I did check my remaining fuel range meter before and after the mod and saw absolutely no change in the reading. I was not able to do a before and after temp compare because of the change in weather, but just the look and feel alone made it well worth it.

Great product, great company.

Improved Look & Airflow Review by Wes
For a much cleaner look, I installed both the 1.5" Tank Lift Kit & Deluxe Lift Kit together. Lifting both front and rear of tank gives a more seemless look to the tanks profile, plus increases air flow across both big twins. Far easier to clean underneath and you can see more of those beautiful chromed heads now. The instructions were great and I was able to easily complete both front and back kit installs quickly by myself. (Posted on 10/9/2018)
Nice Upgrade! Review by Luvtofish
Just installed the 2 inch deluxe tank lift kit on my 17 TG. I really love the look and I can see my rockers now! While I've only taken a short drive to treat things, it already seems to run cooler as evidenced by the fact that the fans didn't come on when I parked and shutdown. I also installed the Cooling deflector wings. Both are great additions to your touring model. (Posted on 6/23/2018)
Watch the Video, Take Your Time, Easy Install Review by Gunny
I watched the DK Install Video first, then just took my time. Install is straight forward with no hidden hiccups (the towel under the front of the tank was a great idea). Wish I had thought of putting a “catch towel” under the front lift points as I put on the nuts before I dropped one into the engine area. Took over a solid hour with a flashlight to find where the nut had dropped down and hidden at the bottom under the engine by the water pump. Spread out catch towels after that to keep up with the dropped items from my huge fingers. After it was done the install is straight forward and really very simple. Well darn, there really is an engine under there! Was able to move the tank forward to make taking my Ultimate seat on and off easier. Little test ride and all was great! (Posted on 6/8/2018)
Good Quality product Review by Dean
This is an easy install, that looks good. I don't have the miles to tell the effect. However, as hot as the Twin Cooled runs, anything has to help. It is a very well made and unique priduct, go with the $12.00 Deluxe addition.

I had an unrelated question and the response was handled above and beyond. These folks are as professional as they get. (Posted on 5/31/2018)
