The 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.

MILWAUKEE (January 18, 2018) – In an X Games first, Harley-Davidson® Snow Hill Climb will make its debut at X Games Aspen as a medaled event alongside ski, snowboard and other action-sports competitions. The new medal sport will close out X Games Aspen 2018, which airs January 25-28 on ESPN and ABC.
In the Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb, riders will race modified twin-cylinder motorcycles up the flat bottom of the SuperPipe course. In each heat, riders will line up side-by-side at the start line at the base of the SuperPipe for a head-to-head race.
The first racer to ride the length of the SuperPipe and clear the finish line at the top will earn the “W.” Each Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb race motorcycle consists of an extended swingarm widen frame and a high-torque, twin-cylinder motor.
“For 115 years H-D riders from all walks of life have expressed their freedom from the seat of America’s favorite motorcycle, so it’s natural for us to continue to blaze trails – this time off the road and in the snow,” said Scott Beck, Harley-Davidson director of marketing. “We’ve raced the ice and climbed virtually every kind of hill, and the Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb is another way for us to grow the sport of motorcycling. We know our riders, and X Games fans and athletes alike share a passion for adrenaline and speed.”
The gold-and-bronze-medal rounds of Harley-Davidson Snow Hill Climb will air January 28 at 10:45 p.m. ET live on ESPN. Preliminary rounds and qualifying will stream live at 10:15 p.m. ET exclusively onfacebook.com/harley-davidson.
