Bike(s):
'14 Speed Triple R, '82 CB900F, '13 Streetglide






Air Filter- BMC, then K&N

Oil Filter- Hi Flo, K&N, OEM all about equal.

Oil- Motul, Amsoil, Honda Oil, Repsol

Chains- RK, D.I.D., Tsubaki

Chain Lube- Bel Ray

Sprockets- AFAM & Renthal for aluminum, JT or Sunstar for steel. Vortex is junk IMO.

Spark Plugs-NGK, Nippondenso

Brakes- EBC, Vesrah

Dampers- Scotts, GPR

Rotors- EBC, Brembo

Rearsets/ Lowering Links- Whatever fits, there's at least 6-7 brands that work well.

Stands-Pitbull, Vortex

Shocks- Ohlins, Works Performance, Penske

Intake Kits- Dynojet, Factory Pro

Tires- Any of the major brands; Bridgestone, Dunlop, Metzler/Pirelli (same tire), Michelin. Depends on what you're riding and how you're riding it.

Exhaust-Akropovic, Arata, Brocks Performance, Leo Vince, M4, Muzzy,Sato, Yoshimura. Once again, depends on what you're riding and how you're riding it.

Levers- CRG, Pazzo, Motion Pro, OEM if nothing else is available but they're overpriced.

Cleaners- Honda Spray Polish, S100, Glass Plus (no ammonia)
