Comfort is a must when riding

Being Comfortable & Safe Go Together, Hand in Hand.

 

Being comfortable means riding longer, fully enjoying each ride, and not ending the day with fatigue.

 

When talking comfort on Your Softail, below are the things that, when combined, will give you the

Ultimate Softail Comfort

 


 

 



Gas Tank Lift

Harley-Davidson  Tank lift kit bike runs cooler motorcycle softail heritage deluxe fat boy springer cross bones night train deuce DK  Custom Products Rocker MADE IN THE USA blackline dark custom

 

Benefits:

  • Less “wind buffeting” 

  • Cooler Engine (less heat felt by rider)

  • Bonus of Easier Cleaning of engine

 

A tank lift will reduce “wind buffeting” felt by the rider, as lifting the tank will allow less air going over the tank, redirecting that air to the engine. Lifting the tank also give an added bonus of easier cleaning of the top of your engine and it will help with cooling down the engine. Less wind buffeting and a cooler engine will mean more comfort for the rider!

 

 

Floorboards

DK Custom Chrome Floorboards Mid or Forward Mount Sportster Dyna Softail Harley-Davidson Fold Up forward or mid controls Black

 

Benefits:

  • Gives feet a solid platform

  • Rubber mat/insert provides vibration isolation & grip

  • No wind pushing at bottom of boot while at speed

  • Easier Shifting/Adjusting weight while riding

  • Increased Lean Angle over OEM footpegs

 

Once you’ve gotten your butt in the right place and comfortable, it’s time to look at foot placement/comfort. Floorboards give a more solid platform for your feet and provide good grip in wet and dry weather. The rubber mat also helps to isolate vibration in your feet. Eliminating the wind pushing up at the bottom of your boot will be much more comfortable and especially useful on those long rides. Adjusting your weight while on those long rides is also much easier with floorboards.

Benefits:

 

  • Get boots/feet/legs further away from engine & exhaust

It’s practically a given; extend your floorboards outward and fell less heat, while putting your boots/feet/legs in a more natural, comfortable position. You also have more room for your entire boot. Being able to get your feet better planted on the floorboard will give a more stable, comfortable ride. The floorboards extensions for 2000-2017 Softails only work with factory floorboards. 

*If you have an M8 Softail, the kit you need can be seen HERE

Comfortable Footpegs

 

Benefits:

  • Better Grip

  • More Range of Adjustment

  • More Solid Platform

 

If floorboards aren’t your style, you’d be surprised by what a difference a pair of footpegs with more grip and a solid platform can make on rider comfort. Being able to make various adjustments, and having the ability to have rotating pegs is a big plus when trying to get your feet in the right place that best suits You.

Benefits:

  • Enables Fitment of Standard Pegs

With these adapters, you can run whatever pegs(or floorboards) of your choice.  You will have hundreds of HD brand pegs and thousands of aftermarket footpegs to choose from after installing these adapters. These are a game-changer for comfort.

 

 

 

M8 Softail Passenger Peg Support Kit

If your M8 Softail did not come with passenger peg mounts, this is your answer. With this kit, you can not only run passenger pegs, but you can run any traditional peg for your passenger. This means many more options for your passenger on choice of pegs so that they can now run what's most comfortable to them.

 

 

 

Heel Rests

Benefits:

  • More Relaxed Feet/Ankles

  • More Comfort for Longer Rides

  • Multiple Foot Positions Available
  • Reduces Fatigue

 

Another significant factor of Ultimate Comfort when riding is whether or not you have a heel rest. Especially when taking longer rides, heel rests can make a substantial difference in ankle/foot comfort. You’ll have the ability to give your feet a rest which will help reduce overall fatigue giving the Ultimate Comfort when riding.




Highway Pegs

DK Cuatom Chrome Heel Rest Bracket & Arm Kit HARLEY DAVIDSON DK Custom Sportster Dyna Softail Forward Controls Highway Foot Peg Comfort

 

Benefits:

  • Stretch Your Legs

  • Adjustable to You & Your Bike

 

Highway pegs are a Must. Mounting options range from footpeg clamps that mount to your engine guard to the *Stealth Adjustable Highway Peg Mounting Kit if you do not have/want an engine guard/crash bar. Having highway pegs, much like heel rests, are especially useful for those long rides and for those who ride daily on the commute to work. Much like the heel rests, highway pegs help to reduce overall fatigue for more riding comfort and enjoyment.

*If you have an M8 Softail, the Stealth Adjustable Highway Peg Mounting Kit is your answer. You can see that kit HERE.

 

Handlebar Riser Extensions

DK Custom Handlebar Riser Extensions Fat Risers Harley Dyna Softail

 

Benefits:

  • Raises Bars 

  • Slightly Tilts Bars back

  • Relieves Strain in Shoulders & Back

  • More Clearance for Tank Lift

 

The right handlebar position can make all the difference in ride comfort, relieving strain in your shoulders, neck, back, arms, and wrist by putting your hands in a more serene position for You. Handlebar placement and position varies widely from rider to rider and bike to bike.

How can you find the most comfortable bar position for you? 

This is the tried and true way:

  • Sit on your bike

  • Have someone hold it up straight for you

  • Put your feet on the pegs

  • Close your eyes

  • Put your hands out to where it is most comfortable to hold them

  • Open your eyes...wherever your hands are, that is where you want the handlebar grips to be.



 

Handlebar Grips

DK Custom Black ISO GRIPS Cushioned Grip ~ Dampens Vibration  Fits All Harley Models 1982-Up Kuryakyn Sportster Dyna Softail Touring Trikes Tri-Glide Bagger

 

Benefits:

  • Reduce/Eliminate Tingling/Numb Fingers

  • More Cushioned Feel

 

Once you’ve adjusted your bars to the most comfortable position for You, it’s time to look at your handlebar grips. No one likes that annoying tingling/numb feeling in your hands and fingers after a long ride. Adding better grips that will dampen handlebar vibration while providing a more cushioned feel, on top of riser extensions, will help to provide the Ultimate Comfort when riding. 



 

Better Front Suspension

DK Custom License Plate Light  Mount Tail Light Harley Sportster Dyna Softail left OR right side

 

Benefits:

  • Keeps tires better planted
  • Less dive when applying front brakes
  • More Control & Stability
  • More Clearance (lean angle) in curves

 

Once your hands, feet, and butt are all in the right position and most comfortable to  you, the final step is to upgrade that not so great Harley front suspension. Whether you opt for a cartridge system, performance springs, or drop in valves, any upgrade will provide a better ride. Having the correct spring weight for your weight, the correct amount of sag, limited dive when applying the front brakes, and correct damping in both the compression and rebound strokes, will provide you with a much more comfortable, stable, smoother ride.

  • Allows you to have easy access to your drink

  • Convient on rides in rural areas with no places to stop grab a drink
  • Different cup holders allow different mounting points (more options)

 

Having a cup holder is almost a given. When you’re riding, you don’t want to have to worry about keeping a tight grip on your bottle of water or soda. Whether it’s perch mount, handlebar mount, engine guard mount, convenience is the common ground and with convenience comes comfort!
