As a pioneer in the category of motorcycle air suspension, the Southern California based company has systems for Harley Davidson, Victory, Can-Am, Metric, Street Bikes, Boss Hoss, Indian and custom applications.
Founded in 2004 by Oscar Sanchez, Platinum Air Suspension began by working on a custom bike project and developed into a complete “air ride system”.  Fast forward to 2018, owner and designer Mike Ferris has developed the company and product into a world class industry standard. Truly the yardstick by which all others are measured.

Platinum’s Bleed Feed System
The flagship of the company is the ‘Bleed Feed’ system, which controls both ride height and rebound. The system is controlled by positive pressure at all times and can easily be adjusted at the “flip of a switch” for complete comfort based on rider weight, road conditions, and operators riding style. The Bleed Feed system includes air cylinders machined from 6061 T-6 billet aluminum, air-control valve, DOT- approved 1/4 “line and fittings, switch / electrical harness, air compressor, hardware, and line cutter.
Platinum also offers the simple, lower cost system, which features the same high-level of quality components as the Bleed Feed, but does not include rebound control. The system controls ride height through pump and release pressure.
All Platinum Air Suspension shocks are available in a wide variety of finishes. Options include chrome, polished, powder coated, or satin finishes. Special order powder coating in the specific colors is also available.

Tappet Cuffs – High Performance Tappet Stabilizers for M8 Models

1The latest iteration of the beloved big twin is proving to be a stout motor that responds well to hop ups and a sound flogging, making it a favorite of ours. One of the components we were not happy with is the plastic tappet guides that could potentially let tappets twist under high RPM and when coupled with high lift cams. S&S developed a clean solution in our new machined aluminum and hard anodized Tappet Cuffs. Designed to stabilize tappets in high performance M8 engines, these should pair well with any cam change and are a must have for Stage 2 and above builds.

Ken’s Factory makes every effort to accurately label “Competition Use Only / Race Ready” products intended for use on closed course competition motorcycles only; differentiating them from “Highway / Street-Approved”, everyday use products.

Use of select racing products, which may not be emissions-compliant, on highway motorcycles is subject to California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulations and could be considered tampering with your vehicle’s ability to meet emissions standards. California’s anti-tampering law, Vehicle Code Section 27156 (VC 27156), prohibits the installation of any add-on or modified emission-related part of any pollution-controlled motorcycle, unless the part has been exempted by ARB. Ultimately, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to determine suitability of parts for their motorcycle application and ensure compliance with ARB emissions regulations.

Competition Use Only Parts may not be sold or used on a motorcycle that is used on or off the public highways other than those motorcycles used exclusively for competition. Competition Use Only Parts are aftermarket parts that replace or otherwise interfere with the operation of an emission control device, such as an catalytic converter or oxygen sensor, and may be sold and used on a motorcycle that is used only for closed course competition.

If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to Ken’s Factory.
