Accessories And Cool Looks For Harley's Touring Bikes

New motorcycle accessories from Harley-Davidson range from creating a cool look to actually feeling cooler when riding.

Offering a solution for sweltering legs perched above a hot motorcycle engine, Harley released its new CoolFlow Fan for 2017 Harley-Davidson Touring and Trike model motorcycles. The CoolFlow Fan is engineered to maximize rider and passenger comfort in high-temperature situations such as parade duty, rush-hour traffic, or extreme temperature environments. Unlike traditional fan kits that try to cool the engine by blowing air across the cylinders and often onto the rider’s legs, the CoolFlow Fan keeps riders comfortable by drawing heated air away from the rear cylinder and exhaust pipe and directing it toward the ground.

As seen in the picture below, the CoolFlow Fan is almost invisible when mounted on the motorcycle, and features switched On/Off/Auto operation. In the On mode, the fan is active at low speeds, and will turn off when motorcycle speed reaches 40 mph. As speed lowers, the fan turns back on at 35 mph; this gap is intentional to prevent the fan from cycling on and off when riding close to 40 mph. In the Auto setting, the fan operates based on a combination of slow vehicle speed and specific engine and ambient temperatures. Fan function is indicated in the odometer.

The CoolFlow Fan is waterproof and designed for durable performance. A dealer Digital Technician update, which is priced separately, is required to complete the installation, and installation on some models may require additional components. There is a CoolFlow Fan designed specifically for each 2017 Harley-Davidson Touring and Trike model motorcycle so interested riders should make sure they buy the correct one.

Another way of handling air is with a new Screamin' Eagle High-Flow Air Cleaner designed for Harley-Davidson’s Milwaukee-Eight engine.

Following the mantra of more air for more power, the Screamin' Eagle High-Flow Air Cleaner is designed to fit behind the original equipment air cleaner cover and offers a back plate sized to provide an open-element function that permits airflow around the entire perimeter of the air cleaner and through the ram air opening at the front.

The kit fits 2017 Touring and Trike models, except CVO models, and includes the die-cast back plate, a high-flow oiled-cotton filter element, all required gaskets and hardware, and a diamond-cut Screamin’ Eagle medallion. All models require ECM calibration with Screamin’ Eagle Pro Street Tuner, which is of course priced separately for proper installation. This kit is 50-state U.S. EPA compliant.

Finally, something that just looks cool.

Riders can show off the full profile of a Harley-Davidson 19-inch front wheel with the new Custom Wrapped Front Fender.

This all-steel fender wraps almost 180 degrees around the front tire for a clean, custom appearance. The low-profile, cutaway design exposes the wheel from hub to rim for maximum visual impact. Manufactured to original-equipment specs, this fender is designed for mistake-proof installation. It comes pre-drilled to fit original equipment fender-mounting bosses, and does not require additional fender spacers or install kits.

Available in Vivid Black or factory-primed and ready for custom paint, the Custom Wrapped Front Fender fits 2014-later Harley-Davidson Touring models equipped with up to a 19-inch wheel-and-tire combination, except Trike models.  

All the above, as well as other Harley-Davidson Genuine Motor Parts & Accessories are available at more than 750 authorized retail locations in the United States and online.
