Küryakyn’s Top Rally Season Riding Necessities!

20293_kur_sturgis_9

Whether you’re holding out for the big bash in the Black Hills or heading to the Mojave for this week’s Laughlin River Run, a few key upgrades in often overlooked places can make the journey that much more enjoyable. We took the top-selling products purchased by attendees at Bike Week in Daytona Beach and combined them with some of our hottest spring items to create a list of our top “Rally Season Riding Necessities” to help get the ideas flowing.

7” Phase 7 L.E.D. Headlamps and 4-1/2” Passing Lamps

Küryakyn 7" Phase 7 L.E.D. Headlamp and 4-1/2" L.E.D. Passing Lamps (shown with L.E.D. Halo Trim Rings, sold separately)

Küryakyn 7″ Phase 7 L.E.D. Headlamp and 4-1/2″ L.E.D. Passing Lamps (shown with L.E.D. Halo Trim Rings, sold separately)

The Phase 7 Headlamp was the #1 selling item at Daytona Bike Week. Made in the U.S.A., the top-selling PHASE 7 L.E.D. 7″ HEADLAMP & 4-1/2″ PASSING LAMPS utilize a complex reflector design that provides unbeatable light output along with a drastic reduction in current draw. Military-grade die-cast aluminum housings with scratch-resistant, non-yellowing polycarbonate lenses ensure long-lasting durability and performance. Pair the Passing Lamps with our TOTAL CONTROL PASSING LAMP HARNESS and they’ll remain illuminated with the high beam headlight. The 7” headlamp is also available in an ECE-compliant version for right- or left-drive applications.

The cutting-edge styling, potent growl and noticeable jump in performance without intake or header upgrades create an unbeatable package at an extremely reasonable price.

Chrome or matte black ceramic Maverick 2.5˝ Slip-Ons are available for ’91-’15 Dynas (except FLD and FXDL), most ’07-’15 Softails*, and all ’04-’15 Sportster models. Fiberglass-wrapped steel louvered Sound Reduction Baffles are also available (sold separately, $79.99).
