New Mini Mufflers from Biltwell Inc.

Description: Biltwell mini mufflers slip fit over the open ends on 1-3/4-inch O.D. custom pipes to change the look and sound of the exhaust system on your motorcycle. A perforated steel baffle tube with fiberglass wrapping inside the mini muffler can be removed to change the exhaust note.

Mini Muffler Cannon - Chrome

Construction: Custom tapered and TIG welded 16-gauge steel canister with 1.76” I.D. slip joint end. TIG welded, stamped steel hanger bracket with Biltwell anvil marking. Gold zinc plated 16-gauge perforated steel baffle tube with stamped and TIG welded end caps. Fiberglass packing around removable internal baffle assembly provides additional sound muffling and inhibits sparks during backfiring. Two finishes available: Triple chrome plating or matte black high-temperature powdercoating

Mini Muffler Grenade - Black

Fitment: Biltwell mini mufflers fit over 1-3/4-inch O.D. open tube exhaust pipes with a minimum of 1-1/8 inch of straight tube at the end of the exhaust pipe. If your current straight pipes feature a removable baffle inside the tube end, it may be necessary to remove the baffle and associated mounting hardware to facilitate slip fitment of the Biltwell mini muffler over the tube end. Biltwell mini mufflers can be secured on the exhaust tube end with any standard P-clamp constructed for this purpose (not included), or with a Biltwell machined alloy muffler clamp. The TIG welded mounting strap on the back of the mini muffler canister provides a place to mount a bracket for custom installations.

Mini Muffler Cannon - Chrome

NOTICE TO CALIFORNIA END USERS: Biltwell mini mufflers are designed to fit a variety of 1977 or older and 1978 or newer motorcycles as a “replacement part” as defined by the California Air Resources Board. To be legal for operation on or off highways in the state of California, any aftermarket part falling under CARB’s replacement part definition may not eliminate or replace any original emission control component(s), such as an oxygen sensor(s), catalytic converter(s), etc. If the motorcycle you plan to customize by installing Biltwell mini muffler(s) has a catalytic converter, please understand that removing either the catalytic converter and/or any oxygen sensor(s) on the exhaust system is a violation of CARB regulations.

New Cast Air Cleaners from Bison Motorsports


These air cleaners come complete with a high performance reusable air filer and all the mounting hardware required to make this a simple install. We crafted this piece from the highest quality material, the backing place is machined out of aluminum and will fit either CV, S&S and EFI mounts. The tops are cast in T319 aluminum right here in Southern California. Each piece is polished to a high shine.

If replacing a stock air cleaner you will need to purchase a carb support bracket, for S&S we also recommend a enricher knob for a clean setup.

Welcome Kill Scum Speed Cult to the CC family!

We would like to welcome Kill Scum Speed Cult 
to the ChopCult family!




Kill Scum Speed Cult is an expression of American freedom. 
The spirit of the wild, the drive of the restless, the constant chase of liberty, to feel the open air, to explore and roam, to conquer, to be an individual....its also a clothing line. 

Our mission is to provide the biker community around the world with quality american biker apparel at an affordable price.



We design, print, plan and distribute all of our merchandise ourselves.  We are involved in all parts of our clothing line to supply you with the most honest and purest biker apparel.  All of our merchandise is printed here in the USA, it is a home grown business. 

We believe in keeping the DIY attitude and are against big corporate clothing companies that are always trying to find a way to make a bag of cash out of our fellow bikers by designing horrible shirts that clearly have no real biker relation.  All of our designs are original and are constantly adding to our collection.

New! S&S EZ Loader!

DIY Fuel Injection Calibration Loader!


You no longer need to invest in an expensive fuel injection tuning device or spend tons of money on costly dyno tuning! For under $200 you can own the S&S EZ Loader that allows you to select and load S&S Cycle developed and dyno proven tune files into your ECM. These calibrations were developed exclusively for S&S Step 1 (intake & exhaust) and Step 2 (Cams) Proven Performance® products.

The S&S EZ Loader is simple to use, and as your bike evolves through the S&S 'Steps' process, you can easily change the calibration to match your configuration.  Start with Step 1: for example the S&S Stealth air cleaner and Super Sidewinder 2-into1 exhaust. Use the S&S EZ Loader to select the parts, then the calibration, load it and go.  Down the road when you are looking for more power, move to Step 2 and install a set of S&S MR103 cams, select the calibration that matches, load it and ride!
The S&S EZ Loader comes with a USB cable and instructions, and is pre-loaded with all available S&S Step 1 & 2 calibration files (at time of production). Calibrations and firmware stored on the device can be updated anytime online*. Check out www.sscycle.com/ezloader for more details.
Fitment
• 2011-‘14 103" Harley-Davidson® EFI big twins with Delphi® module
• More calibrations and models being developed daily. (Check
www.sscycle.com/ezloader for more details)
Features and Benefits
• Simple plug and play operation – Plug in, select the parts that are on your bike, select the calibration, save the calibration, and then load your tune file
• Automatically recognizes your vehicle model and only shows available calibration files
• Comes loaded with all available S&S Step 1 and Step 2 calibrations (However, first time users need to do a simple online setup process to configure their S&S EZ Loader and to download the latest firmware and tune files.)
• S&S calibration files adjust fuel delivery, ignition timing, and increase rev limit (Tune files for S&S Easy Start cams may also turn off factory compression releases if needed)
• Automatically downloads latest calibrations when plugged into your computer*
• New calibration and firmware updates available online*
Bonus Functions!
• Read and clear error codes
• Re-calibrate your speedometer

This is purely about the love of bikes, good tunes, and just having a fun time. We would love for everyone to join us, and just keep it peaceful! So please no fireworks, personal fires, burnouts, attitudes, or fights. We're encouraging a No Colors policy to help ensure this.
