This is the TOP OF THE LINE Premium Tank Lift Kit. Our product line includes: 1", 1.5", 2", 2.5" and 3" rise kits...they are different (purpose-made & patented) extra metal or holes for multiple fitments, the lines match the lines of the bike. American Made. You probably will not need the longer fuel line, but it is included in case you do.

These are precision cut on our CNC machine from 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!

Reduces Buffeting.  Air that was going over the top of the tank and hitting the chest of the rider is now going below the tanks, across the engine.

This is the way the Motor Company should have put the tanks - Much Cleaner Line!

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

This is an EASY install - 10 to 20 minutes!

Fits All 1999-2017 Softail Models. Does NOT fit the M8 Softail

 The Deluxe Option lifts the rear of the tank AND allows you to move the tank back up to 1/2".  It is a nice option for some applications, full details HERE.


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

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 on your bike.

We are NOT responsible for any damage done to your bike because of the kit.

It is easy to check for clearance, Before ordering:

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 tank lift size to check for clearance issues.

4. Turn your handlebars all the way to the right and raise the tank up your desired tank lift size 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

Great look, great price!! Review by Lago
Easy install, 2”, glad they sent new hose too! (Posted on 5/18/2021)
2" lift review Review by Nelson
Quick and easy install. I personally had no clearance issue on my stock 2006 Softail Deluxe and I do feel less heat. I really like how much more I can now see the tops of my chrome rocker boxes and I also like the look of the higher tank. I HIGHLY recommend doing the install on an EMPTY TANK and installing the included longer fuel line.
GREAT PRODUCT!!! (Posted on 4/27/2021)
1” tank lift .Black P’C’d Review by Backagain
As described as expected from DK. Needed only 1” for wiring after installing Springer on my Train.Quality is top notch. This is my 2nd to ,the other on my Sportster chop.
Really opens up the neck area and rocker tops. The 1” is a little tight getting to the nuts to tighten. The right combination of extensions with the end being swivel type does the trick.
Not hot yet but I can tell the heat is basically reduced on the top of the engine. Go for it. (Posted on 4/18/2021)
Looks nasty!! Review by Balls
Hadn’t seen a deluxe with a 2.5” lift on it, So I bought one, smoothed it, polished it, and installed it. Looks friggen awesome and I’m sure it’ll run a lot cooler in the summer months. It was totally worth it. Looks gangster af. Also, I installed the “deluxe” option which worked out very well. Well thought out packaging, getting the longer crossover hose was bonus because it was most certainly needed in my situation. (Posted on 1/22/2021)
Very Satisfied Review by 03Deuce
I am very pleased with the quality of this product. Looks fantastic and was easy to install. Very happy with this purchase! (Posted on 9/8/2020)
What a difference! Review by garyt1015
Everything as specified! The billet polished up beautifully. Easy install. Hardest part was draining the gas.
Noticeable difference in oil temp and heat, especially in traffic,
Noticeable improvement in "wind in the face" as well.

Nice machine work Review by Craig
I have not yet installed this item. Have tank off of engine doing the top end.
I bought this mainly for the wind buffeting benefit along with extra cooling. (Posted on 5/20/2020)
Looks Badass! Review by Jeff O
It worked out pretty well for me as I had to remove my tank for a new handlebar install.
Might be a little tight getting in there without taking the tank off, but the fit and finish are worth it! Looks awesome! (Posted on 5/20/2020)

Tank Lift for Heritage Softail Classic Review by Jim
Looks great and definitely helps air flow and cooling. Installation was easier taking tank off completely. Customer service was great. Will buy more from DK. (Posted on 7/30/2019)
98.9 Review by Clyde
It's all good but I left mine on the shelf. Went on easy but I felt the tank tab rubbing tight against my new LaPara wasn't a good idea, But that's just me, so don't let that discourage you from giving it a shot. Several purchase's from DK and I'll be back (Posted on 6/17/2019)
