Power the Lights The Right Way

You just finished installing your new L.E.D. turn signals and you can’t figure out why they are flashing fast. After going online, you figure it out and realize you need a Load Equalizer. We’ve all heard the phrase a hundred times, but what is a Load Equalizer, what does it do, and why do I need one? Well, my objective today is to educate you on the needs, necessity, and function of a load equalizer. At K and G Cycles we carry a large selection of Load Equalizers to handle almost any electrical need.

quad-load-EQ-BBP-13-3142   To help us understand the need for a load equalizer, we need to understand what happens when we install L.E.D. lighting on our motorcycle. On a motorcycle, the stock turn signal flasher is designed to flash twice as fast when one of the incandescent bulbs is burnt out. This happens when you switch to L.E.D. bulbs because they consume so little power. When the flasher sees a drop in the power being used, it believes a bulb is burnt out and goes into warning mode. Even though it is a brand new bulb, it will make the L.E.D. flash too fast or possibly not at all. This is where a load equalizer needs to be installed to adjust the electrical load, or equalize it so the system doesn’t see a phantom loss and the function returns to normal. Depending on your systems requirements there are different equalizers available with a range of amperage and resistance ratings. Due to electrical signal manipulation, some load equalizers can generate a considerable amount of heat and it is suggested not to use 4-way hazard lights. Since each application is different it is a good idea to check with the manufacturer of the equalizer or your local service center. Most load equalizers are straight forward units that are often plug and play, or simple cut and splice set ups reducing installation headaches.

   So you see, without a doubt using L.E.D. lighting will most assuredly require the use of a load equalizer. Depending on how many positions you have installed them in and the location itself will dictate the style and rating of the equalizer. Because of this, K and G Cycles has a larger selection sure to fit your needs. I hope you have a better understanding of L.E.D. lighting and load equalizers now. Contact us today and install that L.E.D. lighting right the first time.

Chrome, It’s what We All Crave

We all love and appreciate chrome, and sometimes it is the little pieces that count.  Does a bike have to be dripping with chrome? No. At least we don’t think every one does. K and G Cycles  understands each bike is accessorized in accordance with ones own personal taste, so the amount of chrome will vary as much as the owners themselves.

BBP-63-215 swing arm cover   One accessory install we like to see is Chrome Swing Arm covers. There is often little chance to dress up the rear section of most motorcycles, and taking advantage of the ability to highlight an otherwise bland or boring area is what it’s all about. Of course I can not possibly show you each and every swing arm cover, but here a couple of our fast movers. Part # BBP-63-215 is made for Honda XVS 950. This bright chrome, stamped steel swing arm cover beautifully finishes the side of that Honda. Easily attaching to the swing arm with 3M Dual Lock fasteners this cover is easily removable to allow for tire changing.

BBP-63-202 Belt guard   Another one of our items that we just can’t seem to keep on the shelves is this beautifully crafted belt guard that compliments the previously mentioned swing arm cover. Part # BBP-63-202 is an ABS Chrome Belt Cover for the Yamaha V Star 950 and V Star 1300 motorcycles. Through countless hours of R & D, the greatly improved design is wider and longer than the OEM belt cover protecting the rear belt more. This unique design is enhanced with a contoured shape running front to rear to not only cover the belt, but add impressive styling. Slathered in Show Chrome Accessories’ quality chrome insures unmatched brilliance and a fit that could be mistaken for OEM.

   So I have shown you 2 pieces that will wake up that boring rear end with chrome so deep you could shave out of it. Simple to add on, these chrome accessories from K and G Cycles will transform your ride into the rolling work of art you’d like it to be. Don’t wait till everyone else has these parts on their bike, contact us today!

Storage Right where it Belongs

It happens all too often – we are forced to seek storage for the items we need close at hand in far away places. No, I’m not referring to Cinderella’s Castle, Hook’s Ship or the Dwarf’s Cottage in the woods, I am referring to the saddlebags, roll bags or even the back pack we must place out belongings in. There is a simple solution from the team at K and G Cycles, a Windshield Pouch. There are many designs available depending on the bike you ride.

The most common 3pouch-bag-BBP-H50-303BK is the curved 3 pouch bag that fits mainly motorcycles with fairings. Designed to follow the curve of the dash, these bags offer a decent amount of storage in a center bag, as well as 2 outer bags that are usually curved. The center bag delivers the most amount of space and can handle such items as Digital Cameras, cell phones, sunglasses and more. The outer pockets will handle less because they are actually smaller. A less used item or less important item can be stowed in these. Regardless of what you stow where, you now have an storage withing your reach.

non-fairing-2-pouch-BBP-H50    For those of you that have a full windshield instead of a fairing, there are options for you too. There are 3 pouch bags in addition to the single pouch bag. Sure they only have to follow the outward curve of the windshield rather than that of the dash, but they are still every bit of the work horse as their prettier cousins. One distinct advantage of the single pouch unit is its cavernous interior lets you put almost anything in there. Small Dog, Handgun, Bigger nicer Camera, or even a Turkey Leg.

   I have never had a motorcycle without a complete windshield as opposed to a fairing so I cannot weigh in 100% on the single big pouch. I have sold more of them than I can count on my fingers, toes, ears and nose times 10. I can however tell you on my curved 3 pouch model, I use an outer pouch for my garage door opener, the other outer pouch for a travel size first aid kit and sunscreen. The center pouch holds my registration, my phone, insurance card, and my disc lock. Oh yeah and a small old digital camera for those moments you just have to capture.

   When you run out of places to stash the things you need near by, it is time to consider a windshield bag from K and G Cycles. It doesn’t matter what bike you ride or the style you want, we’ve got you covered. Plain, Studded, Fringed and more, we can help you keep the important stuff within reach and keep the good looks of your bike flowing throughout.

Custom Looks that Provide Protection

Have you ever wondered why the motorcycle manufacturers don’t offer some type of protection for the undersides of their motorcycles. I’m not saying we need military spec ballistic armor for the undercarriage. What would be nice is some type of shield capable of protecting the bottom side from errant road debris. K and G Cycles has been on a search to find that critter, and we can proudly say, “we have accomplished our mission”. Now you can have stylish protection for the underside of your Gold Wing that won’t impact accessibility for servicing the bike..

belly-pans   If you want to streamline and protect your motorcycles undercarriage, then you can add a belly pan (Part # BBP-52-817 – Polished  Aluminum Finish) to your  2001-2013 Honda Gold Wing GL1800 and reap the benefits. While the primary goal of a belly pan is to protect the critical, exposed parts under your motorcycle such as your coolant tank,oil pan, you get so much more. The added benefits include a streamlining effect that contributes to smoother air flow resulting in less wind drag and buffeting at highway speeds. The end result is better control and potential fuel savings. Employing a custom engineered perforation pattern that has been incorporated in the design, ventilation has been increased thus achieving better airflow. This unit is made from aircraft grade aluminum (offered in Black Anodized Aluminum Part # BBP-52-817BK) and has a 2 piece design that allows easy access to the oil filter when servicing your motorcycle. There is no need to worry about sharp edges because they have all been softened to minimize potential damage and injury. Best of all, this unit is produced in the Good Ole U.S.A.

   Stability and protection are always features you should concern yourself with, and that is why this Belly Pan available at K and G Cycles is a wise accessory decision. With a fitment that includes 2001 – 2013 Honda Gold Wing Motorcycles (even the new F6B) it covers a bunch of you, and offers a huge amount of protection from all that junk on the road. Style and function – what more could you ask for?

So much that we often have trouble reading our devices that are mounted there. Leader Motorcycle has redesigned all of their accessory mounts to incorporate this new anti-vibration feature and are available at K and G Cycles.
