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

 
This is an EASY install - 10 to 20 minutes!

Fitment:

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.

IMPORTANT FITMENT NOTES:
What we label 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.

2" lift twin cam RK Review by Douce
After a hour plus ride in high 90's i realize my oil temp was on the boarder of being a bit to hot. The installation was easy and straightforward and deffinitly works as intended. Oil temps are lower and I love the looks of the setup! Got the delux option installed as well to help reduce the tank angle for more fuel when filling up. (Posted on 8/30/2022)

Better Air Flow Review by Mondodave
Does exactly what DK Customs claim. I added the 2" lift to my '21 RG FLTRX and man what a difference it makes on the cooling. I never thought too much about heat until I started running a Dynojet PV-3B on my scoot. I was seeing engine temps up to 330 degrees and since installing the lift it's around 280 degrees. Great product, would recommend to anyone and it improves the appearance of the scoot. I like seeing the rocker covers. (Posted on 6/21/2022)

Exactly what they say! Review by Steve
Does just what they claim it will do. Added the 1.5” tank lift to my 2021 Limited and it helps with both the buffeting and engine heat. Only thing I didn’t like was I had to slide the tank back so the handle bars didn’t hit the tank. Pushed the nose of the seat up. Something to keep in mind if you need all the seat. Great products and great company! (Posted on 6/19/2022)

More Air Review by Tank lify
Definitely a improvement that was well needed.
Gives it a real nice clean look.
Stops the gas tank from smothering the top of the engine. More space makes more air for sure. Great way to get rid of heat instantly. I like that my tank isn’t sitting on top on my engine anymore. DK designs things that don’t only look good. They have a legitimate function to make your bike run awesome. (Posted on 5/21/2022)

Lift kit w/option is a yes Review by Leok
I added the tank lift kit 1 1/2" on my 2013 Tri Glide Ultra with Deluxe option. I am very satisfied with temp reduction, I'm seeing around a 19 degree. I also ordered the Cooling Wings which I have not installed as I'm not happy with the fit or the look so guessing I wasted that part. But still very happy with the lift kit. (Posted on 5/18/2022)

Seems to work some to reduce heat Review by Bobb Gorena
First here are some tips: definitely do this when the tank is empty, that damn thing is heavy with half to full tank :( Also, the instructions say to start on the right, but if your bike is like mine ('22 RG) then you should start on the left because there are fewer wires in the way on that side. After you do the left, the tank is supported for the right side so your hands are free to get the wires out of the way. Also, definitely do that paper towel in the wrench trick, before I did that I lost one of the tiny little nuts somewhere on top of the engine. I'm sure I'll never find that again. I think the lift is helping with the engine temp, but it doesn't seem to be much more than maybe about 5 degrees at max, but it does climb more slowly and it seems like it falls more rapidly when you start moving again. The instructions need to be updated to be more logical, but I guess there are plenty of videos too so whatever. (Posted on 5/15/2022)

Tank Lift Review by Chaplain J J
I really dig these tank lifts. I was shocked to see my 18 Heritage had one from MoCo when I bought it new. This is the 3rd time I’ve ordered tank lifts. They actually do move a ton heat away. The quality is always outstanding as is the customer service. DK believes in the products they sell and they actually still ride. One of the 1st things I did when I got a new to me trike. The lifts are well worth it. (Posted on 5/12/2022)

The tank lift and the deluxe option are well made, and an idea that the manufacturer should provide.

Easy tank lift. Review by Roadglider
I really like the looks of the 1.5" lift kit. I primarily purchased for more air flow over the motor and to give the full view of the rocker box cover. It was an easy install without removing the tank or fuel line. Great quality! I would recommend purchasing the deluxe lift kit and lift the back of the tank also. I installed both at same time.

Improve improve improve Review by JJ
I saw the YouTube videos regarding cooling. I removed the left side mid frame deflector, noticed a difference. So decided to go with a 2” tank lift with rear(deluxe) lift. Plus Cooling deflector wings. I would have done this a long time ago but wasn’t aware of DK. The 2012 road glide ultra has a stock air deflector that directs air up and over the front of the tank, probably reduces helmt/chest buffeting. I noticed right away, 30-40 mph the extra air on my legs and motor. No helmet/ buffeting at freeway speed ! I also was able to access the valve covers for cleaning. I also got the blowby bypass diy kit. Oil was running out of the bottom of the air cleaner. I ran the hose up after seeing how much room there was under the tank.

Outstanding Product by a Great Company ! Review by Phoenixmike
One thing I noticed on my 2019 HD Ultra Classic M8 107 was how the MoCo placed the gas tank right on top of the engine.

IMO this caused two problems. First, they chromed almost the entire top of those cylinders and then hid all that chrome with
a low sitting gas tank. Second, placing that engine right on top of those hot cylinders totally succeeded in blocking the air
flow from helping to cool these "air cooled engines" down.

After I checked for left and right clearance when moving my handlebars through their arc, a must do, I knew that I could install the 1 1/2" lift kit. I also opted for the highly recommended Deluxe Option which raises the back of the tank up by about 1/2".

With both lifts in place, the tank is elevated but level with the frame, not nose up. Now I can shine up that top chrome and you can see all of those huge jugs. This is a perfect invention manufactured by the professional company of DK Custom with quality parts. Perfect service and Highly recommended! (Posted on 9/29/2020)

1 Inch Lift-GREAT upgrade to my 2013 Trike Review by David
Order and delivery ware quick. Installation was easily and quickly done. Lifts are quality products-they fit and they look great on the Trike. I found that using a towel between the lifted tank and the frame worked great. I also put a towel on top of the heads-made me less likely to drop parts into the 'great unknown' between the motor and the frame. These lifts make my Trike look just a little better than any other one on the road-more chrome to see and more air to cool the trike.. (Posted on 8/18/2020)

Effective Review by Jeff in Tucson
I ride in temperatures well over 100 degrees in the Arizona desert with my 2012 Road Glide. The custom motor is quite the beast at 113 ci and 130 hp / 127 tq. Things get cooking fast down here! With the tank riser kit, plus the rear deluxe lift kit, and the cooling wings, I'm easily seeing 10 degrees less, sometimes more, on really hot days. Even during questionable speeds on the highway in the heat, passing grandmothers, Corvettes, Mustangs and Kawasakis, the oil temp has never gone over 230. At regular cruising, it's more like 190. Ah, life is good. (Posted on 8/5/2020)

Looks and works as advertised Review by Marty
Installed a 1" tank lift on 2016 Road Glide. Easy to install, haven't had any really warm riding in Pennsylvania yet, but seems like more air flow and no buffeting. Also installed air deflector wings and removed Harley's deflectors that came with CVO. (Posted on 6/8/2020)

Fast simple easy install.
Haven't gotten a chance to ride much with it yet but I can tell using both the front and rear tank lift made for a little more room for my thighs which is nice i was able to not only move the tank up off from the engine but forward a bit as well

Great Product Review by Gucci Man
2010 HD Limited. I’m very particular when it comes to bolting parts on my bikes. I installed the 1” black powder coated lift. Well designed, good clean look, easy install. Powder coat kinda thin, but not on visible side. The 1” lowered temps at least 10 degrees. I raised rear tank 1/4” with cut hose and washers. In my opinion, more than 1” would be too much. It works as described. I recommend. (Posted on 5/4/2020)

2 In Review by BMC Sean
I bought the 2 inch lift with the deluxe lift as well to lift the back of the fuel tank, looks great and really compliments my T-bar setup and custom bolts on my 2020 Road Glide.
Installation for the front and rear took about 10 minutes.
Sitting next to a stock bike you can really see the difference and it adds that extra bit of change to your bike. I went with 2 inches because I didn't want the final product to look like it was chopped but I wanted to showcase the custom gold bolts I have on my rocker boxes.
Great product the black risers and bolts look great and perform as expected.

Thanks guys!

Love the look Review by Jimbo
Put a 1 1/2" lift on a 2007 Ultra Classic and I love how it opened up a view to the chrome of the rocker covers. It took me a little longer then some of the other reviewers because I just couldn't get the nut behind the mounting ears and start to thread it on the bolt. After finally doing that, I tightened it using a crows foot wrench with ratchet and extension. About 45 min for me. I'll be buying rocker box bolt covers next to complete the look.

Clean and easy Review by Leon Kingfish
Lift kit installed has a really clean look. Easy to install. Just follow the instructions. I went with the 1" lift on my '17 TG. This is just enough to get good air flow over the engine without having any handlebar clear issues. I highly recommend getting the gas tank down to 1/4 or less full. Only negative is that I waited to 45K miles to install. (Posted on 12/19/2019)

Great look and Easy to Install! Review by ZooMan55
I wasn't sure if I would ike this look, but it makes a big difference in seeing the top of the engine. Very easy to install. I did it myself in about 20 minutes. Be sure you use blue thread locker! THe one thing I would change is, I'd install the black ones instead of polished machine finish. I tried to polish the aluminum as suggested, but could not get them looking great. I"ll paint them myself, but powder coated would have been better. (Posted on 11/29/2019)

What a difference on an M8! Review by gardenho
Installed quickly and without issue, did not have to remove tank, only loosened it and pushed it ahead slightly to install this on a 2017 Freewheeler and it wasn't necessary to mess with the vent or fuel lines. It was necessary to push tank ahead slightly because my Mustang 2up seat wasn't fitting correctly sitting too far back to bolt back in. What a difference this lift has made on the heat coming off the engine and hitting my right calf/leg! I have a permanent red patch there from riding under high heat (30+ C) but it is greatly reduced now. It has most definitely lowered the engine temp by 15-20 degrees according to the digital HD gauge I have installed for oil temp. I also have the Cooling Deflector Wings installed, they were in place 2 yrs ago and the tank lift works fine with them even though they aren't the wings noted for use with the lift kit. Thanks DK!!

Good product Review by Chet
I installed these (1") with the cooling deflector wings; so far less air coming over the tank and feeling a little less heat from the engine. Hardest part of the install was getting them out of the packaging (someone went crazy with the tape). All in all, a good product that does what it says it will do. (Posted on 6/22/2019)

Easiest Mod by Far - 2" w/ Deluxe option Review by John
Install took about 20 mins on my 2019 Road Glide. Love the way the bike looks and now the rockers are much easier to clean. Plenty of space and clearance, could have gone with 2-1/2 lift, maybe 3" but I'm very satisfied with 2".

One inch tank lift with deluxe option Review by Rich
Installed one inch tank lift with deluxe option on my 2012 Tri Glide. Easy installation following provided instructions. Make sure your gas tank is less than half full, It makes lifting tank much easier. I put a towel between the bottom of tank & backbone of frame to hold it in position while bolting on the one inch lift kit.
Deluxe option was a snap. I moved my tank back & have no clearance issues with the handlebars contacting the tank. Works great & Trike runs cooler with more air flowing over top of motor. (Posted on 6/6/2019)

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)

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)
