S&S - How Strong Are Your Flywheels?

S&S Cycle three-piece flywheels

S&S Cycle has identified the need for stronger flywheels in v-twin engines with performance modifications. The crankpin/flywheel joint in production Harley flywheel assemblies was not designed to handle the increased power, so the stock flywheels tend to shift out of true.

To deal with this issue S&S Cycle is now producing three-piece flywheel assemblies with integral sprocket and pinion shafts, an all-new connecting rod, and a larger crankpin. The company states that the new assemblies are a vast improvement over stock, and are even superior to its own flywheels produced previously.

The heat-treated 4140 material is claimed to be not only harder than stock but also 114 percent stronger. This superior material eliminates the need for thrust washers, further increasing the contact area between the flywheel and crankpin for a stronger joint.
In addition, a larger 1.671in diameter crankpin and tighter press fit yield more clamping area and increased crank-pin clamping force. Integral mainshafts eliminate two potential points of weakness. Reduced mainshaft deflection at high rpm produces less vibration and reduced piston and rod side thrusting, which prevents oil pump damage. Vibration is also reduced through consistent balance and precision machining to produce truer flywheels. They are trued to less than .0005" TIR. Upgraded S&S rod bearings have 20 rollers for greater load capacity than the 18 roller bearings used in stock engines.

S&S Cycle is making the new three-piece flywheels in two styles and a variety of strokes to fit '99-'06 and '07-'14 Harley-Davidson big twins (balanced and unbalanced models). Both styles of flywheels are also now standard equipment in S&S T-Series engines and Hot Set Up Kit® applications for these year groups. The new S&S flywheels can be used with Timken® sprocket shaft bearings or with the stock '03-later straight roller bearings. S&S highly recommends a Timken conversion for performance engines.

Photo's of the Harley-Davidson Club ’t Centrum Int. Rally

Events and H-D Rallies, what makes the difference between a good and a bad one? Well, besides the weather, it’s the people, the way an event is organized and of course the location plays a small role too.

The 44th H-DC ’tCentrum Int. Rally in Maarsseveen, The Netherlands, is one of those rallies you just have to go to. The location at the Lake is beautiful, the weather always, as in every year, is great, but the main thing is the nice people and the relaxt way the Rally is organized.

 Believe me, it’s a shitload of work, time and energy to get a Rally like this organized. The way this Int. H-D Rally runs is like clockwork. Andre and his club know what to do and every little detail is taken care of. The last couple of years they added al lot of entertainment, especially in the afternoon. Whereas at most rallies the site around this time of day usually is deserted, at the H-D Club ’t Centrum Int. Rally, almost everybody who did not join the Ride-Out, stayed there and had a good time, talking to friends, having a drink and listening to a Rockabilly band named ‘The Boppin’ Bastards’ playing outside on the small stage in front of the huge partytent. So, with most people staying at the Rally site, it was busy and everybody had a good time. Plenty of good food for at decent rates was available and the outside bar was crowded with thirsty rally goers...

The Dakota Doomsday Party Photo's are Online now!

Broken Wings, rusted Parts, corroded aluminum, loose Parts and a total state of destruction. The Dakota L-4 made in 1944 in Oklahoma, USA couldn’t have looked more sad than the state it was in, when we arrived for the Dakota DoomsDay Party on Sunday September the 15th. at the Valkenburg Naval Air Station near Katwijk in the Netherlands. It was a farewell party, attended by many WWII Veterans and Dakota lovers. Farewell Party, because the very next day the Dakota was completely dismantled.

Prior to the disassembly, Hans Wiesman and his company Avionart, organised the Dakota Doomsday Party on Sunday 15 Sept, a farewell meeting that was attended by WW II Jeeps, Trucks and Army Harley-Davidsons as a tribute to this Warbird Dakota, the Aluminum Soldier that will never fly again.

Rijtest Harley-Davidson 2014 Electra Glide Ultra Limited

Rijden met de Harley-Davidson 2014 Electra Glide Ultra Limited

In Faak kregen we van Harley-Davidson Oostenrijk als een van de eersten de kans om met de Limited te rijden. Die grepen we met beide handen aan en we genoten van een fijne rit door de Oostenrijkse bergen.

De Limited is momenteel het vlaggenschip van de uitgebreide Harley-Davidson modellijn 2014. Heel belangrijk was de input van de klanten, die graag veel veranderingen wilden zien ten opzichte van de oudere modellen. Het Project, genaamd ‘Rushmore’ (waarover hieronder meer) heeft duidelijk zijn vruchten afgeworpen; uiterlijk is het nog steeds de zo gewaardeerde klassiek aandoende look van de Electra Glide, maar er is dusdanig veel veranderd dan wel verbeterd aan de Ultra, dat deze Ultra Limited een totaal andere motor is geworden, qua rijden, remmen en bediening.

Photo’s of the European Bike Week Faak 2013

Photo’s European Bike Week Faak 2013
All the Photo’s of the European Bike Week 2013 in Faak, Austria, are online now!
Click here to see them all!

We made a seperate folder named ‘Views of Faak’. There you can see photography of the beautiful countryside and the winding roads of Carinthia, the county in the Southern part of Austria where Faakersee is.  And some humerous photo’s too…

Although the European Bike Week 2013 in Faak, Austria, seemed a just little less crowded than last year, it was a great Party and good fun! The Music was dissapointing, many coverbands, the Leningrad Cowboys being one of them, seemed to play covers of songs that are bad already and turned them in to a stupid freakshow and a lot of noise. If that’s your cup of tea - fine by me, but a lot of people like me simply turned their backs and walked away.

In different tents and many stages other bands rocked European Bike Week 2013 through the night, the H-D and Custom Chrome Custom Bikes Show and of course the Parade with 25.000 (!) Bikes were highlight during European Bike Week 2013 in Faak, Austria.

The weather was exceptionally good during European Bike Week2013 in Faak, Austria, with a clear blue sky and a warm sun everyday; many days the temperature reached 30 degrees and more! The beautiful countryside, the Mountains with their deep-blue lakes and winding roads makes Carinthia one of the best places for motorcycles. Slovenia and Italy are ‘around the corner’, so leaving EuropeanBike Week 2013 in Faak, Austria after breakfast from Faaker See, you can eat your lunch in Slovenia, have an ice cream and cappuchino in Italy, and a nice schnapps in the evening back in Faakersee.

Faak, as the European Bike Week often is refered to, is something for every Biker. Many even claim you’re not a real Biker if you haven’t been to Faak…!
The good news is that all the permissions and other paperwork are cleared for the next five years of Faak, so we’ll epect to see you all at the European Bike Week 2013 in Faak, Austria next year!  

Many thanks to my ‘Crew 13’ for their help and contribution of stunning photography,
 Rüdy, Christine and Tina, H-D Austria, 
Tourist Information Carinthia: Thomas Michor and his Team, 
Custom Chrome Europe, 
and last but not least, all the friendly people in Faak who welcome us bikers every year!

10th Annual Sidecar Rally at the National Motorcycle Museum

10th Annual Sidecar Rally at the National Motorcycle Museum

Velorex, Hannigan, Vetter, Champion were brands among the field of over 50 side car rigs last Saturday at the National Motorcycle Museum. The East Central Iowa Sidecar Association staged their 10th annual Sidecar Rally at the Museum. Rigs and their owners from five states plus Iowa were on site. Local  newspaper journalist from the Journal-Eureka, Becky DirksHaugsted gave event organizer John Dennis a big hug. “It was her first ride ever in a sidecar rig,” said John. “We went out for about a 20 mile group ride and Becky was thrilled!”

A good number of Harleys were present including a ’65 Panhead and a ’78 Shovelhead, even a V-Rod but their were much older machines as well including a truly antique Henderson with a sidecar. There was even a fully fabricated custom pulling a sidecar. Hall of Famers Mike and Margaret Wilson came up from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Mike offered, “It’s a marvelous event at a great place.  I’ve always enjoyed sidecars.” Mike and Margaret’s Harley FXRS based rig is on display in the Museum currently.
