Küryakyn Releases Wild New Cam
TC-24D Cam Revs Up Wild Things Line
Somerset, WI - Küryakyn Holdings LLC, a leader in the aftermarket parts industry, is proud to announce the release of the new TC-24D cam. This bolt-in performance cam fits all 2007 to 2013 Harley-Davidson® Twin Cam models (2006 to 2013 Dynas). The cam is an extension of Küryakyn’s “Wild Things” performance line, and a component of the new Perfect StormTM Plus system.
“The TC-24D cams were designed exclusively for the late model Twin Cam bikes and perform beyond expectations,” says Mike Roland, Küryakyn’s Performance Division Manager. “When combined with the Perfect StormTM intake, Crusher Duals exhaust and Power Cell, the TC-24D rivals the output of a lot of ‘built’ engines. It truly is the biggest bang for your buck out there.”
Despite the big bang, TC-24D cams feature mild opening and closing ramps that are easy on your valvetrain and allow for quieter running. The TC-24D’s unique design creates large increases in horsepower and improved torque delivered via a very wide and smooth powerband.
Since the introduction of the “Wild Things” performance line in 2003, Küryakyn has continued to be innovators in the performance industry. The product line was also named Performance Product of the Year in 2011 for Küryakyn’s breakthrough Perfect StormTM performance package.
Earlier this year Honda announced the introduction of a brand new touring model, the Gold Wing F6B. While the F6B is based on the second generation GL1800 platform, there are a number of almost imperceptible changes that make the F6B unique.
At Küryakyn we are fortunate enough to have one and are working diligently to verify fitment of our existing Gold Wing accessories as well as working on new items specifically made to fit the F6B. (Unfortunately we cannot tell you what)
Our Gloss Black ISO®-Grips available for both heated and unheated applications (P/N’s 6383 & 6380 respectively) The ISO®-Grip line has been a tried and true staple for Küryakyn since 1996 with proven vibration isolating technology.
If you need a larger platform for your feet but don’t want a full size floorboard we offer the Premium Mini Boards with Comfort Drop Mounts (P/N 4328).
They will provide more room to move your feet on those long rides without hampering your riding style like a full size floorboard might. If the mini boards are still too large for your taste we also offer the Dually ISO®-Pegs (P/N 7938). These beauties fit perfectly in size between the stock foot pegs and our Premium Mini Boards.
If long distance touring with a trailer is your style, we designed a trailer hitch (P/N 7641) specifically for the second generation GL1800 platform which consists of a 6-point mounting system to provide superior strength and rigidity.
These are just a small sample of the items we have available for the all new F6B. To view all the accessories available please visit www.kuryakyn.com and use our Shop By Bike filter. This will allow you to view items that have been confirmed to be a direct fitment for the F6B along with multi-fit items that have been designed to fit a broad range of makes and models.

Vibration can really wear a rider out quickly. That is where Küryakyn’s new Kinetic Foot controls come in. Designed to dampen vibration, the Kinetic line utilizes the same proven technology from Küryakyn’s ISO® line to isolate the rider from engine and road vibration.

Küryakyn Launches Kinetic Controls
New Line Expands Popular “ISO” Product Offerings
Somerset, WI April 22, 2013 – Küryakyn Holdings LLC, a leader in the aftermarket parts industry, is proud to announce the “Kinetic” line of controls. Encompassing both hand and foot controls, the new Kinetic line is designed to stand out from the crowd while optimizing and enhancing motorcycle control.
“At Küryakyn we ride,” says Küryakyn’s SVP of Sales & Marketing, Marc Wolfram. “We understand that the needs of the modern motorcycle rider are changing and the Kinetic line really gave us the opportunity to build on these needs. Kinetic delivers a unique collection of products that bridge the gap between performance and styling.”
The Kinetic product range builds on Küryakyn’s popular “ISO” line. An evolution of one of Küryakyn’s earliest product lines, the “ISO” concept utilizes rubber with air pockets to isolate the rider from vibration. Modern materials make this tried and true concept even more effective. The Kinetic line currently includes grips, pegs, floorboard inserts, brake pedal pads and shift pegs. All items in the new line will be available in a choice of chrome or gloss black finishes.

Merriam-Webster defines unique as being the only one. At Küryakyn we believe every rider is unique in their own way. That is why we offer a wide variety of parts and accessories to make your ride as unique as you. Whether it is a visual distinction such as our Zombie Infinity Horn Cover with coordinating mirrors, grips, levers and taillight cover; a unique lighting set up with our Panacea L.E.D. Taillight and Turn Signal Inserts; or the distinct sound from our Crusher Mufflers and Staggered Dual Exhaust, we strive to provide you with the parts you need to create an individualized ride!
To help you with transforming your ride from stock to unique, we have developed a few resources. The first of which is our annual catalog. For 2013, we have divided our entire line of products into three separate catalogs: one dedicated to parts for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, one dedicated to Victory, Metric-Cruisers, Can-Am, and Sport Bike motorcycles, and one dedicated to Honda Goldwing motorcycles. We hope these will help you make your ride unique by focusing only on the parts that fit your brand or model.
Our Shop By Bike filter at www.kuryakyn.com is another resource we developed and takes our segmented catalogs to a higher level. By entering your particular Make, Year, and Model you can view all the items that we have determined fit your specific ride, along with items that have universal fitment across multiple models. By using this tool on the website, each item you view will be filtered with no need to thumb back and forth through a catalog. Do you own a 2010 Honda Fury and want to know if we have an air cleaner kit that will fit? No problem. Enter that information into our Shop By Bike and the results will be narrowed to those items that are either specific fitment for the Fury or universal fitment items. In this case, the results show our Mach 2™ has been designed to fit a 2010 Honda Fury.
Last but certainly not least is our most interactive resource, face to face interaction with our customers. We travel the globe visiting rallies, expos, dealer open house events and trade shows to present our products in person where you can ask our expert personnel all your questions regarding function and fitment. In 2013 we will be attending more than 60 events. Each event will provide a unique opportunity to interact with the products and representatives. For example, at most major rally events we will have our semi truck offering our full product line and on-site installation by factory trained technicians, while the regional trade show events are open to dealer personnel only and provide us an opportunity to interact one on one at the dealership level. Please visit our events page to find the full schedule of where to find us on the road.
No matter which method you choose to find the products that are right for you and your bike, we are here to support each and every product we manufacture. Küryakyn is proud to have assembled a Technical Support Team of technicians who have a combined experience that exceeds 125 years. Whether your question is regarding the right part for your bike or assistance installing that part, our Technicians are only a phone call or e-mail away, Monday – Friday, 8am-5pm Central Time. We even offer live video chat support using Facetime® if you need to show us exactly what you are requiring assistance with.
