Shops around the country were super-hard hit when the economy crashed. A bunch dropped out of business, but immediately they started coming back, if only out of garages. Harley-Davidson didn’t help much. They sent a memo to all their dealers cutting the number of aftermarket parts they could carry and forcing dealers not to sell to local shops.

In the past, if a local shop needed a stock part, some could work a franchise deal for as little as a 10 percent discount out the back door. Local shops couldn’t make much, if anything, but it was a service to their customers. But recently, and with computer monitoring, the factory could put a complete kibosh on assisting local shops.

I laugh about this shit, because it’s as if fucking with the little guy is really going to stop or hold up anything. I can imagine some suit in a factory board meeting justifying his quarterly decline with aftermarket shops stealing their business.

So, what do good brothers of the faith do? James Simonelli, and the crew at Biker’s Choice and Twin Power developed a master plan to support small shops and even H-D dealers who need parts fast. They initiated a program to build much-needed stock replacement parts not available from the aftermarket. Sure, if you want to do a Twin Cam top end, you can find any number of manufacturers who make replacement pistons and rings, but there’s a bunch of stuff required from H-D until recently.



We are going to list some of these elements here from Twin Power and Biker’s Choice and we will continue to add parts, especially stock replacement parts offering improved performance and longevity, as they come on line. I’m sure James would also like to hear from you, if you have specific needs. Plus, if a stock part needed improvement, Twin Power will perform upgrades before anything hits the streets.

Learn how to install the new Tension Reliever Manual Primary Chain Adjuster. Twin Power has added an instructional video to their website to show you how to install the part and this simple installation can result in longer component life.


Brand Manager James Simonelli shows you how to install the part.



“An overtightened primary chain is known to cause premature failure of the engine, transmission and primary bearing as well as to cause other complications,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “This video gives step-by-step instructions on how to install the tension reliever manual primary chain adjuster on your bikes. It’s really easy to put this part in place and get back on the road.”

Twin Power Gasket Line


Twin Power has done it again with the addition of gaskets to their ever-growing product line, giving the Harley-Davidson enthusiast another option when it comes to products for their motorcycles.


Made in the USA, Twin Power gaskets are offered as a kit that contains all of the gaskets and seals necessary, or separately as needed, to perform a specific job. The highest quality kits include AFM and MLS style gaskets.






“One of the biggest complaints we’ve heard about gaskets is how they’re packaged,” says James Simonelli, Brand Manager for Twin Power. “Many of the gaskets on the market are packaged in uneven quantities which makes no sense.”



“We’ve also reduced package quantities on many items to help keep inventory costs down,” adds Simonelli.




The new gaskets (P/Ns 043154 to 043299) from Twin Power retail for $3.95 to $152.95 and can be ordered through your local Tucker Rocky | Biker’s Choice dealer.
